Where you’ll be

Skelton, United Kingdom

The public house: The Dog and Gun is a short walk and serves excellent food (in the 2021 Michelin Guide - it has a Bib Gourmand award for excellent good value food ) and a good selection of beers.

There are views across the countryside from the cottage to Blencathra and Carrock Fell. There are many walks around Skelton and the nearby villages, all taking in wonderful views. Local activities include rambling, fellwalking, climbing, sailing and pony trekking. Swimming pools indoor and outdoor (summer only!) are a short distance away.
Places of interest include Museums - Tullie House in Carlisle is the best, Country Houses including Hutton in the Forest and Dalemain and Lowther Castle whose grounds and exterior have undergone extensive refurbishment - all well worth a visit.
