Come to in the western Lake District to be close to mountain and coastal walks, cycling and long days exploring the surrounds before evenings chilling out among smashing sunsets and the sounds of local birds... (And if birds are your bag, you might like to flit to the nearby Hawk & Owl Centre at Muncaster.)
- Small quiet site set on a working farm in the Western Lake District
- Close to mountain and coastal walks
- Near the Hawk & Owl Centre at Muncaster
As might be expected around the Lake District, these are fab views around Cumblands Farm and the vibe is one of simple countryside serenity; this is a small and very friendly site on a working farm and just the ticket for soothing hols. It's about a mile's walk via the nearby beach to the local village of Ravenglass.
Cumblands Farm has charging facilities, chemical disposal and a small shower and loo block with plenty of hot water. And as might be hoped in a region with walkies all around, this is a dog-friendly place – look out for the friendly farm dogs while you're there.
Lakes, mountains, beaches and miles of walking paths and cycling trails are all within a short distance of , as well as heritage highlights like Muncaster Castle and the ruins of the Roman fort near Hardknott. Whitehaven harbour is a short drive away.
The local village of Ravenglass (the only coastal settlement in the whole of the Lake District National Park) was occupied by toga types in the second century when it was used as a vital Roman naval base; the remains of the Roman baths form one of the biggest remaining Roman structures in England.
Ravenglass is also the starting point for the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway running the seven miles to Dalegarth in the Eskdale valley and passing the Hardknott Roman fort, the Boot and Muncaster watermills and Muncaster Castle.
If you reckon your legs can stand it, hike up nearby Hardknott Pass, one of the two steepest paths in all of England (the other is Rosedale Chimney Bank in North Yorkshire) for views of the Isle of Man and access to the also fairly tough terrain of Wrynose Pass which leads to the Three Shire Stone where the historic counties of Cumberland, Lancashire and Westmorland meet.
Viking artefacts including the tallest and oldest Viking cross in England are at the nearby village of Gosforth four miles away.
