Things To Do While Staying At Ash Cottage

Our Explore More Pages showcase the best along with some of the lesser-known attractions of the Lake District. We want you to get the most from your experience whilst staying in this unique area by highlighting some of our favourite places, along with those of the owners and our friends most loved walks and attractions.

Some days you may wish to stay close to home, on others, set off and visit further away landscapes. Here are just a few of the magnificent places we love, both near and far, always remembering that nowhere is more than a hour to and hour and a quarter drive away, and the journey through the landscape is always part of the days enjoyment.

We would also love to hear about you memorable moments so we can share it with others. 
Either email or post us on Facebook, Google+ or twitter or even send a post card.

Exploring the area near Ash Cottage

Fell Foot Park - Lake Windermere

A nice day out for both adults and children is to visit Fell Foot at he the southern basin of Lake Windermere. Children’s adventure playground, waterside cafe, rowboat hire, fishing and lake swimming. Finish off the day with an evening meal at either the Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge or The Lakeside Hotel at Lakeside.

 


Arnside Morecambe Bay Walk

Not many will know this walk as it lies on the southern shores of the Morecambe Bay. The drive is easy, via Levens, down to Milnthorpe and round to Arnside. You start from the pier and simply follow the shoreline for as far as you fancy. Rock pools, limestone cliffs, wooded headland and miles and miles of shimmering sand, with a view back to the Cumbrian Mountains.

NOTE

The sands are dangerous as they are magnificent, and only the shrimp fishermen and the sands guides venture out from the shoreline with their tractors. For us mere mortals it is enough to wonder at the seemingly never ending miles of shimmering silver sand, the birdlife and to thrill as the tide with its bore rushes in on its twice daily cycle.

Do give it a go and remember to take a camera, along with a light picnic, where you are sure find the perfect spot among the rock pools or up on the low cliffs to while away some time before retuning home.

Morecambe Bay Cross Bay Walks. It is still possible to cross the sands, still a designated public highway, by joining in with a guided walk. These are led by the renowned Cedric Robinson MBE and Queens Guide, also by Alan Sledmore. For details and walk dates see the links.


Exploring further afield of Ash Cottage

Levers Water & Church Beck

This walk starts from the centre of Coniston Village. You should be able to do this with just the aid of an OS map or, I believe, you can purchase specific local walk directions from the Coniston TIC. The route is about 4 miles to the tarn, with the return journey a bit quicker as it is mostly down hill. Starting from the lane by the co-op you commence a trail that leads up into the old Coppermines valley, passing waterfalls, crossing old bridges, rising gently to give an increasingly more dramatic view of the surrounding fell as you go. At the head of the Coppermines valley, with The Old Man to your left, you can continue up to Levers Water, a boulder strewn reservoir, set at the foot of rugged slopes of Great How, High Fell and Raven Tor. Return by the same route and reward your self with a pint of Coniston Gold in the Black Bull.

 


There then are a few ideas for you to try. To get the most from you visit, do have a look at our Lakeland Guide Pages, the links to the many attractions, and of course explore the wider Internet for more wonderful areas and things to.
