You really are in the heart of the Lakes and the quiet Esthwaite Valley offers some great walks for all the family, with gentle rambles through the fields and woods, beautiful forest walks and amazing panoramic views of Latterbarrow and Claife Heights. For more strenuous walking the nearby fells await and within a few minutes drive you will find Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam and the Langdales. For fully guided days out on the fells, see www.cobwebsadventure.co.uk or call Dave on 07855 476 425.
