Barbon is a charming Dales village. Peaceful yet with its own famous village store, The Churchmouse, and cosy local pub, The Barbon Inn, you've got the best of both worlds here. Stock up on supplies from the village store and head off on foot to find a picturesque spot for a picnic - there are plenty of footpaths and country roads to explore. Around 3 miles away is the beautiful market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Here you'll find a great choice of independent shops, cafes and restaurants making it the perfect destination for a day out. Head to nearby Ingleton where you can enjoy the popular Waterfalls Trail or visit the stunning White Scar Caves .
If you fancy heading further afield, there's so much to see and do. Why not spend the day exploring Bowness and Windermere? A walk up to Orrest Head and onwards to Brant Fell will reward you with some of the most stunning panoramic views; enjoy a cruise around Windermere to enjoy the water from a different perspective and be sure to finish the day off with fish and chips by the lake. Bookworms will rejoice at a trip to Sedbergh, England's Book Town, whilst fans of real ale will love a visit to Dent Brewery, one of the most remote in Britain.
