The Cumbria Way walk and The Reivers Cycle route pass through the village. The Wainwright Fells of the north Lake District are within walking distance and the area is popular with cyclists. With many pretty villages to visit on quiet roads, this is an ideal base for a cycling holiday. Mountain bikers can explore trails around the “Back O’Skiddaw” fells. Mountain bike up to Skiddaw House (which is also in on this website) have a coffee, then explore your way back via Mosedale to Caldbeck.
