GATESYDE: THE SURROUNDING AREA


Although most famous for its walking opportunities, the Lakes offer a wide variety of leisure activities. Close to Fisherground is the small gauge railway The La'al Ratty which runs regular steam engine services to the old Roman port of Ravenglass.

Blea Tarn - a pleasant walk from Fisherground holiday house

There are also many fishing rivers, streams, and lakes. Day passes can be purchased from local angling associations where needed. In Ambleside is the Hawkshead Trout Farm.

Beaches

St Bees is a delightful beach with breathtaking views toward the Isle of Man from St Bees Head. St. Bees is the start of the coast to coast walk and only heritage coastline between Wales and Scotland with an RSBP bird reserve.

Hot Air Ballooning

With a hot air balloon flight over this spectacular scenery you can absorb an unforgettable view of Lakeland and perhaps a little of the cultural inspiration of Britain's heritage.

Golf

Golf Courses in Cumbria provides a list of courses. Within a few miles of the cottage are:
