Jessamine’s Owner’s recommended attractions

Begin exploring by setting off on a scenic walk right from your doorstep up to Tarn Hows, famously one of the best views in the Lake District, it is a charming route following through woodland and open countryside, rewarding you with stunning views across the Lakes.

Visit Go Ape at Grizedale Forest for a day of thrills and adventure, with a treetop rope course and zip wires at 40 feet in the air, you can get a birds-eye view of the amazing landscape, or for a more relaxed activity simply explore the pretty woodland trails spotting all 50 sculptures which are dotted throughout the forest!

Heading just outside of Ambleside you will find Brockhole Visitors Centre where you can enjoy treetop trek and nets, mini golf, archery, laser clay shooting, boat hire or simply relax and sample Cumbrian cooking at its best in the café, offering table service from the terrace which provides spectacular views overlooking Lake Windermere.

Beatrix Potter’s former home, the National Trust’s Hill Top, rests close by and is a quaint farmhouse still filled with the writer’s furnishings and favourite things, almost as though she had just stepped out for a walk; it’s a great place to visit for any fans of her fantastic children’s books.

Visit all the hot spots of the Lake District by travelling along England’s largest lake, Windermere, with boat ferries bringing you to the various waterside towns and villages; find Ambleside bursting with heritage including the Ambleside Roman Fort, head to Bowness-on-Windermere for The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, and marvel at the amazing creatures in the Lakes Aquarium in Lakeside.

The market town of Keswick within the Lake District National Park is just over 40 minutes drive from Hawkshead, it is surrounded by mountains like Skiddaw with the beautiful Derwent Water close to the town centre. If mountain climbing is not for you then The Cumberland Pencil Museum documents the history of pencils and the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery will tease your creative side!

A similar distance drive away can be found the market town of Kendal, famous for its Mint cake. Kendal offers a weekly outdoor market and daily indoor market where many local delights can be sampled and purchased. Kendal’s grey limestone buildings have earned it the nickname ‘Auld Grey Town’ If you enjoy browsing around museums, Kendal museum which was founded in 1796 includes collections of local archaeology, history, geology and natural history from around the globe. For those with an interest in taxidermy, the museum hosts a collection which features a stuffed polar bear and a model of a dodo.
