Less than an hour away by car, the spectacular Lake District World Heritage Site is easily accessible for our guests, the perfect day out for those wishing to explore some of the country’s most incredible scenic countryside.
The Northern and Eastern parts of the Lake District in particular are within easy reach of Farlam Hall, and are home to some of the most celebrated fells, lakes, towns and villages in the region, including Skiddaw, Blencathra, Catbells, Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite, Ullswater, Keswick and more – with walks to suit all abilities and desired challenges.
There are regular boat launches available at both Derwentwater and Ullswater, taking you to jetties around the lakes that act as the start point of some excellent walks, and taking in some of the very best views you’ll find anywhere in the country. Skiddaw dominates the skyline of the Northern Lakes, standing as the sixth highest mountain in England, but also one of the simplest of this height to ascend. Catbells is one of the region’s most popular, a short, sharp, steep but manageable climb boasting wonderful views across Derwentwater and the surrounding area from the peak – and can be tackled in just a couple of hours, start to finish.
Whether you want to climb one of the more than 200 peaks in the region, walk around the spectacular bodies of water that give the Lake District its name, or catch one of the boat launches and soak in the scenery from the lakes themselves, you’ll find we’re well located for you to enjoy a memorable day of adventure.
