Ennerdale Lake is 6 miles away with its unique protected valley and Wasdale Lake is just 8 miles away. The beautiful Calder valley with its historic Abbey, ancient woodland and salmon river are all within walking distance of the house, as are the open fells. The sea is 3 miles in the distance and views from the windows look to the fells and the Isle of Man. Mostly empty beaches stretch from St Bees in the North to Haverigg in the South, some 25 miles. The old market town of Egremont is 3 miles away and historic Whitehaven with its marina is 8 miles. The old Roman port of Ravenglass is just 7 miles away. Major sources of employment are local to the area.
