Our incredible coast
Whether you enjoy birdwatching, invigorating coastal walks or sampling the finest, freshest local seafood, this beautiful, coastal landscape has something to tempt you.
23rd April 2013Classic viewpoint: Black Combe
Black Combe's lonely position out on the south western edge of the Western Lake District seems to live up to its slightly moody name. Its domed peak, rising above the Irish Sea like the prow of an enormous ship, seems to be giving the rest of the fells the cold shoulder as it sits isolated and glowering across the waves.
16th April 2013Discover Clocktower Arts & Crafts, Broughton-in-Furness
Far too often, I pop into an interesting-looking shop for a 5-minute browse and end up staying for hours. The latest example of this daydreamer phenomenon is Clocktower Arts & Crafts in the enchanting Western Lake District town of Broughton-in-Furness.
3rd April 2013Beauty spot: The Western Lake District’s own Blea Tarn
The Western Lake district is home to so many tantalising and breathtaking giant peaks that it is sometimes easy to overlook the places that are a little bit easier to get to and offer panaromas that are just as pretty.
Similarly, while many know of Blea Tarn in the Langdale area of the Central Lake District – a gem tucked between Little Langdale and Great Langdale – not so many know of the Western Lake District’s answer to it. Our Blea Tarn is a gem in its own right, nestled between Eskdale and Wasdale.
