About the Owner

We loved visiting the Lake District as a family and have spent many days climbing the local fells and visiting the local attractions over the years cementing my love for the area. So I jumped at the chance to look after and run Orchard House (Also Shelterstone and Ferndale) not only to spend more time in the lakes but to let people enjoy visiting the Lakes.

Location

From the Owner

Our family love the area, the north lake is a beautiful with so much to do. Orchard House is situated in Greystoke our second home. The area is so easy to access from the house with a great choice of walks, Lakes and attractions on hand.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

The village of Greystoke is perfectly situated for exploring the area. Keswick is not far away with breathtaking scenary, this popular Lakeland town is situated on the shores of Derwent Water and close to both Bassenthaite and Ullswater. There are some great family hills like Catbells or challenging peaks like Skiddaw which one of the highest in the Lake Districk.

There are many nearby attractions and extensive array of lakes and fells to explore. Visit Whinlatter forest where you can walk, bike or even climb through the trees -'Go Ape' is great for a challenge. View the only pair of Osprays in England which nest in the trees around Bassenthaite. On a wet day, The Rheged visitors centre which is 5 minutes down the road is great with shops, cafes, children play area and I-max cinema. Also at Honistor Slate mine you can scale the rock face of the famous Fleetworth Pike or explore the mine shafts deep into the mountain itself.

Further Details:

The Lake District has many impressive mountains, open fells and beautiful lakes. The landscape has inspired several literary greats, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. You can cruise on a steam-powered yacht or walk the hills and valleys. There are simply so many great ways to explore the Lake District.

For the serious walker, the mountains of Skiddaw, Helvellyn or the highest peak in England, Scaffell Pike provide a great challenge. At lower levels there are hundreds of routes wandering among the lakes and

stone-walled fields.

You can even choose a lake to suit your mood: if bustling lakeside towns and exhilarating watersports take your fancy, then Windermere, Derwent Water and Coniston Water will suit. If its peace and tranquility you seek then the secluded lakes of Buttermere and Wastwater are not to be missed. Yet Cumbria offers much more than the lakes alone. Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or visit the picturesque Duddon Valley, where the heather clad moors peppered with birch trees inspired many of Wordsworths poems.

There are a variety of castles, old statley homes and interesting Slate buildings accross the area. You can even visit a working Slate mine and learn how the process begins. Whinlatter and Grizdale forrests are great for mountain biking and walking, you can even Go Ape and climb through the trees. To the east lies the green and sheltered Eden Valley. Its dramatic landscape provides a range of activities including walking, cycling and watersports making for a perfect family day out.
