The Lake District

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.

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.

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 La'al Ratty with it's 7 miles of line, 12 locomotives & railway museum quite hard to beat.

Within the village there is a shop that sells most items (food, drink, alcoholic beverages, newspapers, outdoor gear), 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'.

"Beautiful apartment in a perfect location!"

Myself, my partner and my son (12 years) stayed at the Orchards apartment for a week in August, and had a brilliant time. We specifically wanted peace, quiet, scenery and some good walks, and we were absolutely NOT disappointed on any count! The location was perfect for all kinds of walks, most started right at the door, and for the further afield, the steam engine (La'al Ratty) stopped just a few mins walk from the apartment. The local shop is extremely useful, and the staff there are able to give great advice on the area as well. The apartment itself was wonderful and very clean, very well equipped, and we wanted for nothing for the entire stay. The owners live above, and were very friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome, even providing us with a much appreciated welcome tray upon arrival. They are quick to sort out any potential issues, and make themselves available should you need them for anything. The people we met in the village were also all very friendly, and didn't mind at all stopping for a chat to offer advice on walks, areas, and shops etc. There is a fab local inn just a short walk away (King George IV) which serves excellent food, and the staff are so warm and welcoming - oh, and according to hubby, the local ales are brill too! Overall, a lovely and quiet week away, and we will most definitely return to the Orchards. We are in fact already planning a short break out of season to complete the Fells and climbs we didn't have time for!
