Other excellent day trip options include a visit to Muncaster Castle and Gardens and a wander round the gorgeous gardens and grand, Stately home of Holker Hall.
After your adventures, take a seat at the Hazelwood Restaurant where you'll find both a lovely view and an extensive menu waiting for you. Enjoy local treats, such as a succulent selection from the carvery table, accompanied by an international selection of wines. Stop in the Jacobean Lounge Bar for a quick, convivial nightcap before heading to your well-appointed room and enjoying good night's sleep.
