The Lake District

You can always find a beautiful quiet spot in the Lake District and nowhere better for that than Eskdale. With dramatic mountains, pretty lakes, the native Herdwick sheep and a good range of local ales, the Lake District is a place to come back to time and time again.

Stretch your legs out with some fantastic ridge walks or get back to a long lost childhood just mucking about on the fellside making dens and having picnics. Go swimming in the cold rivers or take tea and cakes in one of the Lake District's many cafes. Visit a stately home and suffer from delusions of grandeur or scare yourself silly with an afternoon rock climbing up Napes Needle.

The changing seasons bring with them different highlights – Spring is a time of new life with baby lambs, Wordsworth's daffodils, and walks through bluebell woods. Summer brings it's own magic, either lazing by a lake or enjoying the view from the high mountain peaks. Beautiful Autumn colours hopefully bring along an Indian Summer and wild winter on the frosty fells, makes the most of an open fire and a seasonal glass of mulled wine.


You can always find a beautiful quiet spot in the Lake District and nowhere better for that than Eskdale. Aside from walking in Eskdale there is plenty to occupy both adults and children alike.

The Ravenglass and Eskdale steam railway follows a scenic seven mile route to the coast. Once at the coastal village of Ravenglass, Muncaster Castle is a short walk away and has wild gardens and an Owl Centre.

At Silecroft further up the coast you can go horse-riding along the beach, or if you prefer there is horse riding along the moors of Cold Fell.

Half an hour away is the bustling village of Coniston with its lake where you can take a rowing boat out, have a trip on a steam gondola or go canoeing.

Eskdale's nearest lake is Wastwater in Wasdale - the next valley along. This is a deep brooding lake surrounded by the high Wasdale mountains including Scafell Pike.
