Top things to do near North Lakes
For nature lovers...
The Secret Solway Summer Evening Tours
As we are so close to Solway Firth, you will be able to make the most of the outstanding views from our park, across the Firth and over to Dumfries and Galloway.
If you’d like to visit us over the summer, we’d recommend exploring the Cumbrian Solway on one of The Secret Solway Summer Evening Tours. You’ll stop at different scenic venues along the coastline, and see the ancient routes over the estuary.
Walk along one of the many routes here in the Northern Lake District and take in the amazing views. About forty-five minutes away from our park, you can explore Crummock Water, which lies between Loweswater and Buttermere.
Owned by the National Trust, Crummock Water is a beautiful location, and you can walk the nine-mile route around it to soak up the stunning views before heading back to your holiday home to relax!
A little closer to our park is Bassenthwaite Lake, another one of many idyllic locations here. As a National Nature Reserve, you can look out for more than seventy different kinds of birds, which breed around the lake in the summer!
For food fanatics...
The Bank of Silloth
To tantalise your tastebuds during your trip, be sure to make a stop at the Bank of Silloth for its mouth-watering Mediterranean, European and Spanish tapas dishes!
Cumberland Inn’s delicious Sunday roast is not one to be missed! With a choice of roast beef, lamb, pork or turkey decorated with roast and new potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and roast gravy, you’ll be truly spoilt for choice.
