Wheels, wildlife and walking from our peaceful bunk house

By 22nd November 2018Uncategorised

We’re set in the quiet southern end of the Lake District National Park where the mountains meet the sea.

Surrounded by mixed ancient woodland and beautiful fells including Whitbarrow Scar, a limestone escarpment. This impressive feature is famed for its rare butterflies and abundant wildlife and birds.

It also boasts rock climbing at White Scar and Space Buttress – although there is a seasonal restriction being a Peregrine nesting site. It is worth checking the BMC British Mountaineering Club for the rules.

Ospreys also breed a mile away at Foulshaw Moss, part of the Witherslack Mosses trio, which are owned and managed by Cumbria Wildlife Trust and Natural England. Very popular with bird watchers and ornithologists.

We have heritage houses and gardens on our doorstep too, if that’s your thing.

There are many footpaths and bridleways to explore and we’re lucky to have quiet country lanes. Perfect for walking, running, cycling and mountain biking.  We’ve lots of great pubs and cafes nearby, so there is always a view, a loo and a brew along the way.
