Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Staveley, Cumbria to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

On Your Bike The UK's biggest bike store is based five minutes away in Staveley right at the foot of the glorious Kentmere Valley, and is home to some of the best road, leisure and mountain biking in the country. Hire bikes for all the family and set off on a two-wheeled adventure!

Staveley Mill Yard Just down the hill into the village of Staveley, guests will be delighted to find a bevy of shops, eateries and local producers within Staveley Mill Yard. Once a former bobbin mill, this thriving shopping centre is much loved by locals and visitors alike. Recent additions include a local real ale microbrewery and Organico, the UK's largest wine shop. There is also a curry restaurant which uses spices ground in the mill itself. Well worth a visit!

Culture Vulture Every year in August residents put on an art exhibition for regional artists at the Roundhouse on Main Street, which includes lectures and demonstrations by notable UK artists- just one example of the thriving community spirit in this corner of the Lakes.

On the Literary Trail No visit to the Lake District is complete without a visit to the the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction complete with Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin and all the gang. Look out for Mr McGregor! Fans of the Swallows and Amazons stories will enjoy taking a boat cruise around the places surrounding Coniston Water which Arthur Ransome used to populate the imaginary lake of his books, including Wild Cat Island.

Turrets and Towers Take a visit to the mock-Gothic Wray Castle which sits on the shores of Lake Windermere. The grounds are open to the public and are well worth visiting to see the specimen trees; wellingtonia, redwood, gingkoa, weeping lime, and varieties of beech.

Fishing The Lake District offers great fishing opportunities with breathtaking scenery. A site of Special Scientific Interest because of its international importance as a wetland, nearby Esthwaite Water has a large population of wild birds and in the summer the fisherfolk among you could be competing with the ospreys that visit the lake.  

Go Ape  Grizedale tree top adventure is a popular day out for adrenalin junkies and adventure enthusiasts alike. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that's because it is. You'll fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Ffir. Not for the faint-hearted!
