Yet it is ideally situated for a wonderful holiday, five miles from Englands highest mountain and five miles from the beaches at Ravenglass. The area has plenty for all ages, wonderful walks right from the farm, an abundance of wildlife to view, the La'al ratty narrow guage railway has a station only half a mile away and the magestic Muncaster Castle and Owlery is within walking distance. Eskdale even has its own golf course and a centre for course fishing
