The station at Armathwaite, on the Settle Carlisle Railway, is a gateway to the wider area. The navvy-built line with its numerous tunnels and viaducts climbs to Dent, the highest operational railway station on the National Rail network in England. It is a great relaxing way to see and explore the area.
Castlerigg stone circle 3000 BC is one of the earliest in Britain. Its location is both dramatic and atmospheric, with panoramic views of the Lake District mountains
Please feel free to ask us any question you have. We have explored the area and taken more interest in flaura and fauna since moving here. We both enjoy local walks and happy for guests to join us. Dave also goes running and is happy to be joined by guests. We sometimes walk the fells and so guided walks are also a possibility. You could consider walking your pod name during your stay! Dave also goes fishing from time to time and is happy to offer advice on this. We want to make the site accessible to guests without cars so we are happy to pick up guests from Carlisle or Armathwaite railway station.
