There are lots of beautiful walks right from the doorstep. We have direct access onto Catbells and the Allerdale Way from the cottage and the lake is a lovely stroll downhill through Manesty Woods. The Borrowdale Valley and the majestic Honister Pass is just down the road and picturesque Grange in Borrowdale,with its famous double bridge, is about a mile away. Keswick (approx. 5 miles by road) caters for all your daily needs, you can also get there by the ferry from the jetty in Manesty Woods, below the cottage.
