The classic peaks of Blencathra and Helvellyn are both close by and provide some of the best walking and scrambling routes in the UK. If you prefer more hustle and bustle the popular town of Keswick is a 25 minute drive away whilst historic Hutton-in-the-Forest with its famous horse trials is just around the corner. For long distance walkers The Cumbria Way passes through our valley and for road cyclists The Reivers Route (known as the Return CTC) goes right past the bottom of our drive!

There are lots of things to do close by, including:
• Go Ape – treetop adventures
• boat hire and steamer trips on the lakes
• Hadrian's Wall
• Hutton-in-the-Forest historic house
• Carlisle Castle
• The beach at St Bees
