A ride on the affectionately named La’al Ratty is a must for anyone staying here; the Eskdale and Ravenglass steam railway offers a delightful way to take in your surroundings. Serious hikers can tackle Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, or venture up Muncaster Fell for stunning views over the valley. Visit remote Devoke Water or head to the neighbouring valley of Wasdale for a walk by magnificent Wastwater, the deepest of all The Lakes.
