The easiest walk is down to the beck, about 500 metres North of the Barn; or along the same bridleway to our gate and turbine. En route, views of Blencathra/Skiddaw, Nine Standards and The Whin Sill are all around - and we've now installed picnic tables and benches, to allow you to take in the view in comfort! Good local weather forecast here.
