So much to do…

Local Activities

Whether it’s just the two of you, or a group of family & friends, there’s so much to do if you can manage to venture away from A Corner of Eden. Choose to chill out with a spa day, take walks from the door across the amazing Howgill Fells, red squirrel spotting in the nearby nature reserves or go horse riding along the Pennine Bridleway. Why not try a bit of wild swimming, or take to the nearby outdoor pool. Lots of things to inspire you to get active here.
