Surrounding the farm, a network of footpaths provides miles of trails for you to explore as you discover picturesque local villages and glorious rural views. Heading to the coast, you can visit Maryport (4.5 miles), the historic town which dates back to Roman times, or head along to the picturesque resort of Allonby (8 miles). Inland, the bustling market town of Cockermouth (3.5 miles) is home to a choice of great places to eat and drink, including the Jennings Brewery. This is also a great base for exploring the northern reaches of the Lake District, with Bassenthwaite Lake within easy reach (10.5 miles), with local attractions including the Lake District Wildlife Park (12 miles) and Whinlatter Forest Park (11.5 miles).
