Outdoor Pursuits

Part of the Lake District National Park, Ravenglass is an ideal base for many outdoor activities. We are the nearest Guest House to the start of the Hadrian’s Wall cycle route (Route 72). For hikers, the Cumbrian Costal Way passes our front door, and the Cumberland Way starts/ends here. The famous Coast-To-Coast walk starts from nearby St. Bees.

Many day hikes are accessible, tackle the challenges of England’s highest peaks or enjoy the many rewarding valley and lake side walks. Take the Ratty up Eskdale and Wainwrights guide “Walk From Ratty” to explore this “Loveliest of Lakeland’s valleys”

Cyclists can experience the Eskdale Trail, running 8.5 miles from Ravenglass to Dalegarth in upper Eskdale, catch the Ratty or enjoy the ride back. For all of your cycling needs whilst in the West Lakes go to www.ainfieldcycles.co.uk for details.

Rounds can be arranged at either of our two local Golf Courses, one a seaside links course and the other a traditional course in a beautiful setting.

Fly Fishing Lessons: Stay at Rosegarth and book Lee Cummings of Source To Sea for Professional Lessons on the Green opposite the Guest House; go to www.stsflyfishing.com for details.

Day tickets are available for the local Game and Course fishing, a valid rod licence is required. Silecroft is great for beach casting and follow this lead for Sea fishing www.scssa.co.uk

The whole of the SW Cumbrian Coast is a Bird Watchers delight and here in Ravenglass we have the Drigg Gullery directly across the Estuary and Eskmeals Dunes Nature Reserve is on the South side of the Esk.
