The walk to Uldale and the Snooty Fox right from Hideaway Barn

Nearby Ireby was once a busy market town and has a church with parts dating back to the 12th Century. Visit the Cumbria Directory for more information about Ireby.

The Snooty Fox at Uldale

Uldale is also close by with Mike's Eye Gallery and Tea Rooms and the ever popular Snooty Fox pub.

Bassenthwaite Lake

Nearby Bassenthwaite village is a popular starting point to climb Skiddaw - one of the Lake District's highest mountains ... and there is always the Sun Inn when you've finished your walk for a well earned pint of Cumberland Ale.

A half hour drive over the fells takes you to Carlisle, Cumbria's Border City with a rich history and some good shopping. There are usually some good bands playing or other entertainment taking place at the Sand's Centre in Carlisle.
