IN THE AREA:
There are some great eating places and pubs locally (within walking distance), and further afield you will find even more to entertain you.
In Gosforth itself you will find the Norse Viking cross and Hog Back stones at Gosforth church, Blengdale Forest and Gosforth Pottery. The beautiful Wasdale Valley, with Scafell Pike and Wastwater is only three miles away, boasting what was voted 'Britains Favourite View' over the lake towards the Scafell mountain range.
Seascale, with its beach and golf course is also only three miles away, and Ravenglass, with its famous narrow-gauge railway is only 7 miles.
There is plenty to do for cyclists in the area, whether mountain biking or road cycling.
The Hadrian Cycle Way starts 5 miles down the road at Ravenglass, you could come by train and get off at Seascale. The cottage is also on the route of the famous "Fred Whitton" cycle sportive for the Roadies.
For Mountain Biking my husband can supply routes and local knowledge so you can get the most out of your stay. There are routes for all abilities comprising country lanes, forest tracks, open fell and single track. From the cottage, there are enough routes without having to drive for at least a week. There is also the Whinlatter MTB cycle centre a 45 min drive north.
There is a secure bike shed for guests.
We want you to relax and enjoy yourselves, but would appreciate you leaving the cottage in a tidy state. Many thanks !
The cottage is attached to our house, so you are assured a warm welcome. We have renovated the cottage and fully equipped it for guests and offer weekend breaks, long breaks and full week bookings. Our changeover days are friday or monday. (Sorry, but the cottage is unsuitable for young children. We don't allow pets in the cottage.)
This is a wonderful area to explore and we can give advice on walking / biking and places to visit on the west coast of Cumbria. We are a 10 minute drive from the beach and 10 minute drive from Wasdale valley - Britain’s favourite view, with Scafell Pike and Wastwater.
Look forward to meeting you.
