Cycling

There are cycle routes and mountain bike trails all around us. Some are flat, some hilly, some paved, some muddy. Chat to our site staff or visit our information board for details.

Start by heading south towards Torver or north, over Lake Coniston towards Windermere. Check out the nearest National Cycle Route network - view Sustrans route map.


Walking

The area is rich in trails and tracks to follow, both flat and hilly including the Old Man and Tarn Hows. Routes are detailed on the Lake District website and in our information room.

Many hikers favour The National Park’s fells, to enjoy the jaw-dropping views of the lakes below. Scafell Pike is England's highest mountain if you’re looking for a challenging route.

Visitor’s recommendations:

Follow the footpath north over half a mile, along an abandoned railway line to The Ship Inn, part of the Robinsons real ale brewery. Enjoy dinner at The Steam Bistro in Coniston which has an ambient, welcoming atmosphere.
