Ideally nestled where the charming village of Eskdale Green meets the secluded Miterdale valley is Longrigg Green, a welcoming holiday home with a gorgeous garden and bags of space to spread out. Sleeping six people in three comfortable bedrooms and boasting great socialising spaces and glorious views of the surrounding fells it makes an ideal base to explore this area. The house has been designed to make the most of light and views with all the bedrooms being dual aspect while there's also a lovely conservatory for enjoying morning cuppas while watching the visiting birdlife.

Eskdale is a magical valley with a very special atmosphere. Less visited than the larger tourist hubs of the Lake District, it has a tranquil feeling about it while also having five great pubs and access to glorious walking and cycling right from the door. Why not pack a picnic and explore Miterdale? The River Mite has paddling spots aplenty and the forest has some great trails for exploring on the bike. A trip on the La'al Ratty, the wonderful heritage steam railway which runs through the valley, is an absolute must. Winding its way from the coast at Ravenglass to the foot of the fells at Boot it's a day out that will delight all ages and you can catch it from Irton Road Station just 150m away.

Heading further out of the valley there's a world of great things to explore. Muncaster Castle is an award winning visitor attraction nearby with wonderful grounds, amazing birds of prey displays and a fascinating (and spooky) history. Just beyond Muncaster is Ravenglass, the only coastal village within the Lake District National Park. It's got a rich and varied history dating back to Roman times, the evidence of which is well worth exploring. The nearby valley of Wasdale is home to the country's most iconic mountain peaks, Britain's favourite view and also England's deepest lake, just the place for a chilly wild swim!
