Things to do


The area offers a wealth of walks, catering for the leisurely wanderer to the more taxing trek for the ardent enthusiastic walker. There are leisurely walks from the doorstep along winding lanes or public footpaths through some of the finest scenery in the country. Many of the local attractions offer informative and leisurely walks through their grounds where an abundance of wildlife can be seen. There are walks for the hardened walker ranging from easy though moderately strenuous to the difficult, over dales or moors where the spectacular scenery can be enjoyed. Lest we forget, most of these walks have hostelries that cater for all. Each cottage has a selection of material featuring walks to suit everyone.


Easy touring is available from the doorstep through a selection of quiet country lanes. Longer runs from the cottages are available and many attractions can be found within a 20 mile ride. There are a number of tracks available for the mountain bike and “extreme” cyclist.


The following list is a sample of attractions in the area> the list is by no means exhaustive.

Remember this list is by no means exhaustive and there are more brochures available in all the cottages. Often the fun can be happening across little gems by accident to make the best memories.

We recognise that what makes a good day or evening experience is very much a choice for the individual. To help make the choices we have added a link here to some comments left by our customers after their visit to some of the local attractions.
