Lakes & Landscapes

The Lake District teams with outdoor and indoor attractions to see and enjoy. For some suggestions about what to see in our beautiful National Park, see our information on Historic Homes & Gardens, Wildlife, Lakes & Landscapes, Villages or Attractions.

Kirkstone Pass

Kirkstone Pass is England’s highest pass open to motor traffic, with a gradient of 1 in 4 in some places. Kirkstone Pass Inn near its summit is England’s third highest pub.

Hardknott Roman Fort

The remains of Hardknott Roman Fort stand testimony to the power of ancient Rome. Standing 660 feet above sea level, the fort is easily reached via Hardknott Pass.

Hardknott And Wrynose Passes

Hardknott is bare of trees – an oddity in an otherwise lush Lake District. Drive with care along steep gradients with hairpin bends. It all adds up to an exhilarating day out!


England’s largest lake and the one our B&B overlooks. Take a 5-minute walk to the Lake from our house and explore it on foot, on a bike, by bus, or motorised vehicle.

Tarn Hows

Come upon this small body of water and its surrounding hills along what looks suspiciously like sheep tracks and watch the trail open into jaw-dropping beauty!

Aira Force

The most famous waterfall in the Lake District, breathtaking Aira Force is located opposite Ullswater, England’s second largest lake.

Little Langdale And Great Langdale

A contrast of landscapes, Little Langdale is softly pretty, pastoral and green; whilst Great Langdale is craggy, untamed, and awe-inspiring in its dramatic presence.

Scafell Pike, Scafell, And Helvellyn

Three of Lakeland’s best known fells are also its highest: Scafell Pike; followed by Scafell; then Helvellyn, with its famous ridge walk, Striding Edge.


In remote Wasdale is Wastwater, the Lake District’s deepest lake. In 2007, television viewers, when shown four landscapes, voted Wastwater ‘Britain’s Favourtie View’.

Castlerigg Stone Circle

One of Britain’s earliest stone circles, Castlerigg, c.3000 BC, is visually impressive. Set against a sublime atmospheric backdrop of high fells, it offers panoramic views.
