The Cumbria/Lake District
Within the village there is a shop that sells most items (food, drink, alcoholic beverages, newspapers, outdoor stuff), public telephone & 2 Inns (which serve excellent food). A further 3 Inns can be found Eastward along the Eskdale valley. The La'al Ratty (a narrow gauge steam railway) stops at 2 stations in the village - 'Irton Road' & 'The Green' which is just down the lane past the 'Orchards'.
To the East, over Hardnott & Wrynose Passes (England's steepest mountain road), through beautiful Little Langdale, lie the tourist attractions of Ambleside, Coniston, Grasmere & Windermere. Six miles north is Wastwater, England's deepest 'lake', & Wasdale, probably the most dramatic 'valley' in all of Lakeland. South over Birker fell is the unspoiled Dunnerdale Valley & Coniston Fells.
There are lots of easy walks in Eskdale. Riverside & waterfall paths, nature & forest trails, through fields or over low fells the choice is endless. For the more adventurous, the surrounding fells provide routes that are quite breathtaking (both scenic & in effort)! Climbers will revel in Scafell's mighty rocks. Wasdale Head, the birthplace of climbing, is only 20 mins by car. You can use the 'L'aal Ratty' to extend your range of walks & visits. Pony trekking can be arranged at Kinniside - 14 miles away. There are golf courses at Seascale, St Bees, Workington & Eskdale and plenty of places to go fishing.
For naturalists there are bird reserves at Drigg, St. Bees & Hodbarrow. Nature reserve at Eskmeals. Owl centre at Muncaster. Ancient oak woodlands & a rich variety of wildlife habitats from the seashore to mountain top.
Historians & Archaeologists can discover Roman remains at Hardnott Fort & Ravenglass bath house. Ancient crosses & stone circles. Restored corn mills At Muncaster & Boot, Castles at Muncaster & Egremont. The steam railway enthusiast will find the 'L'aal Ratty' with it's 7 miles of line, 12 locomotives & railway museum quite hard to beat.

"Excellent stay, beautiful place!"
We had a wonderful time in this idillic cottage. The cottage was well stocked with amenities (a special mention for the lovely radox bubble bath!) and had great facilities. Beautiful surroundings and lots to do. Village shop situated very close with incredibly helpful staff. Lovely walks around the area with a mini steam railway to connect to other villages. We were blessed with lovely weather for the most part. George V pub, a short walk away, is highly recommendable! Brilliant food and great, friendly service. The long drive over the beautiful countryside was well worth it and we'd definitely come back to stay again.

"Charming private well equipped cottage close to pubs, shop and a great base for exploring the Lake District."
The Orchards Coach House has been tastefully renovated and equipped to provide comfortable, spacious self catering accommodation with a modern and functional kitchen. Parking is next to the entry door. The charming, quiet rural location offers nearby pubs, shop and opportunities for walking, cycling and many other outdoor activities. We found it an ideal base for accessing the coast and driving to many of the well known towns in the Lake District.
