About the neighborhood
The Lake Distict is an all year round visitor attraction. There is racing at Cartmel on all Bank-Holiday week-ends. Holker has its annual Garden Festival in June and has other celebrations throughout the year. There is plenty to interest garden lovers with Levens Hall, Holehird and Holker all close by. We open Eller How woodland by arrangement for the National Garden Scheme for spring flowers from February to June.The South Lakes Music Festival takes place at various venues throughout August.There is a steam train running throughout the year at Newby Bridge can take you to Lakeside for a cruise.The Motor Museum at Backbarrow has a replica of Donald Campbells Bluebird. Twitchers will enjoy a day at RSPBs Leighton Moss.
Getting around
Although it is convenient to use a car to get around in the Lakes we do have guests who arrive by train and bus and order food to be delivered then bunker down to get away from it all. There is a pub within 10 minute walking distance and others a little further afield. Car hire is easy and fairly economical and we can recommend several taxi services.
