Just a 15 minute walk from Shepherds Views will find you on a beautiful sandy beach where you can build sandcastles with your family or go for a romantic evening stroll to watch the sunset.
A short stroll up the lane through the farmyard will take you to Halsenna Moor, an area of conservation and natural beauty. Choose one of the designated walks and look out for the wild deer grazing, fox cubs playing, the red squirrels and many wild birds and animals native to the moor.
Yet another short stroll finds you at Spindlecraft, a quaint craft shop, which is part of the old station house. The railway station serves the Barrow to Carlisle West Coast line, so you don’t even have to drive all the time.
Just a short drive brings you to Muncaster Castle and Ravenglass & Eskdale narrow-guage railway,’ The L’al Ratty.’ Slightly further afield is Grasmere, Ambleside, Coniston, Hawkshead & Windermere, which are all a short hop over the hills! Via Hardknott Pass that is.
The nearest Public House to Shepherds Views is the Victoria Hotel, which is just under a mile. There are a number of traditional Public Houses & Restaurants in and around the area, where you can also sample some traditional ales & good home-made meals using local produce.
