The Local Area

THE Local area



The Lake District National Park, a World Heritage site, is one of the most beautiful areas of the UK and forms a spectacular backdrop of lakes and mountains for your short break or holiday.

Fellgate Farm is perfectly situated for exploring the National Park.

Check out our list of favourite places when you arrive for your stay, or contact us for more information.





With beautiful Lowther Castle, Askham and Ullswater all within easy walking distance there are many activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Lowther Castle has wonderfully restored gardens – still ever changing – and a new and fantastic adventure playground, and a circular walk from Fellgate Farm taking in a trip on Ullswater Steamers and lunch or a cake stop in Pooley Bridge is a firm favourite. 

Fellgate Farm has plenty of information about activities in the local area and we will be more than happy to make recommendations of activities for your stay.  For practicalities, Penrith is less than a 15 minute drive from Fellgate Farm and has many supermarkets, local specialist shops, outdoor supplies, a leisure centre and cinema.
