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.


Crummock Water

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!


Bassenthwaite Lake

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!


Watchtree Nature Reserve

Watchtree is a 205 acre, fully accessible nature reserve, situated on the Solway plain. There are woodlands, planted with red squirrels in mind, and wetlands which have become great breeding grounds for insects and amphibians, as well as traditional hay meadows, ideal for boosting the bird population. A network of accessible trails makes it easy to explore and experience our UK wildlife in their natural habitat.
