Keswick is 8 miles away. You can take a 20 minute drive to the beach at Mawbray, along the Solway Coast, a very accessible area of outstanding natural beauty with long flat beaches and coastal walks. More strenuous walks are Skiddaw or the Buttermere range.

We can recommend something less daunting that still give spectacular views. Other activities nearby include horse riding, fishing, canoeing, sailing, Whinlatter Forest park, golf and well-established biking routes to suit all abilities.
