Eskdale Green has a charming untouched feel about it. There's a friendly village shop a short stroll away and two well-loved village pubs within an easy mille's walk.The wider Eskdale Valley is one of the most unspoilt areas in the National Park, from here you can make the most of some wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, take a marvellous narrow gauge steam engine to the nearby coast or just relax and enjoy the wonderful views in the valley that Wainwright described as “One of Lakeland’s loveliest”. It’s a place of hidden treasures with crystal clear rivers, dramatic waterfalls and even a Japanese garden lovingly restored from its Victorian heyday just a stone's throw from Rock How.
There's plenty to do only slightly further afield too. Muncaster Castle is an award winning visitor attraction nearby with wonderful grounds, amazing birds of prey displays and a fascinating 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 picnic and paddle. However you'd like to spend your stay in this lovely area, Rock How is an ideal starting point.
