The cottage is set in an ideal location between two National Parks - plenty to do, and a wide array of places to explore. From historic buildings and museums to fantastic food markets and a range of restaurants – the area has something for everyone.
The Lakes has a number of stunning Manor Houses and Estates to explore and there is a huge range of walking trails from right outside the cottage, or you can travel through the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales by train (Steam - Settle to Carlisle), boat (Windermere/Coniston/Ullswater), mini bus, foot or our most popular option - bike. Nearby we have Golf / Fishing / Canoeing / Sailing/Horse riding to mention but a few. We are here to help make your holiday a success please ask.
An abundance of cycle paths and mountain biking routes are available nearby including the charming purpose built Grizedale Forest. Christian Prudhomme, Tour de France director, said: "When we build the route of Le Tour, we look at both sporting aspects and the beauty of the route. I knew Yorkshire was a nice region but I didn't imagine it corresponded so well to what we need for a perfect Grand Depart". We are in a perfect location for cyclists and are happy to help you plan the best routes to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside.
