The surrounding mountain scenery is spectacular with woods, meadows, fells and a rushing river. Wild flowers flourish and the area is a haven for wildlife with deer, peregrines, otters, badgers and many rare birds.
The attractive Dales market town of Sedbergh is nearby and is full of character with its cobbled streets and historic houses.
