The La'al Ratty, a much-loved narrow gauge steam railway, passes within view of the house, in fact you can catch the train at Irton Road Station just a stone's throw away. Passengers can wind their way to the coast at Ravenglass or the foot of the fells at Boot.

You can take on the mighty Scafells from the head of the valley, wander up Muncaster Fell from the door or enjoy gentle potters along the crystal clear River Esk and around the Japanese Gardens. Why not try a chilly wild swim in one of the Esk's wonderful deep pools? The valley has five excellent pubs in which to reward yourself after your outdoor adventures.

Only slightly further off there is a great choice of things to do. Explore the Roman history of the area at the mountainside Hardknott Roman Fort or at lovely Ravenglass on the coast. Muncaster Castle makes a great day out for all ages with its spooky history, gorgeous gardens, adventure playground and bird of prey displays. If you've come armed with golf clubs then Eskdale has a delightful parkland course while Seascale, eight miles away, boasts a renowned links to challenge you.
