Or,why don't you take a look at the 'La'al Ratty' see the Small guage railway that runs regularly through the countyside up to the village of Boot? Or, better still, take a trip on the train and we will be there to pick you up at the end of your trip.

Take a look at the Lake districts deepest and most dramatic Lake  in Wastdale, Wastwater, whilst you are in the area.

Pay a visit to the Roman fort at Hard Knott, on  the highest pass in Cumbria if your nerves will stand it!
