Lake District

Most visitors to Eskdale will venture further afield during their stay. Recommended places which allow the visitor to sample the full range of Lakeland delights include

Wasdale Head : ringed by famous craggy mountains, the birth place of the sport of rock climbing, a place to soak up the atmosphere and history of mans exploits in lakeland
Buttermere : The village nestles between Buttermere and Crummock Water and sits in the shaddow of the mighty High Stile / Red Pike ridge. Scenically very dramatic
Dunnerdale (The Duddon Valley). Probably the quietest of the Lakeland Valleys and only 20 minutes drive from Eskdale.
Borrowdale : Lush descidious forests and whitewashed cottage hamlets typify this popular valley. Drive over Honister Pass to Buttermere and on the way stop off at the Slate Mines at the top of the pass.
Haweswater : over in the east, enlaged when made into a reservoir for Manchester, at which time the hamlet of Mardale was drowned. In dry summers the village reappears and visitors can walk amongst the ruins of the cottages. A very dramatic valley head, hemmed in by a ring of mountains. Home to the only nesting Golden Eagle in England
Windermere : No visit to the Lakes would be complete without a cruise up Windermere on one of the lakes steamers. Whilst there visit nearby Hill top, home of Beatrix Potter by using the Windermere ferry to get to Far Sawrey.
