Visiting the North of the Lake District offers stunning views over lakes towards great fells, Spindrift is about half an hours drive from Loweswater, Ennerdale water and Bassenthwaite, we recommend a walk around Ennerdale water, or a stroll by beautiful Buttermere and a visit to the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth.

Look out for the Bishop of Barf adjacent to the road between the towns, beside Bassenthwaite (he's painted white annually).

Cockermouth is a pretty and historic town and has plenty to offer including shops, restaurants and cafe's, Wordsworth House, Banks museum, Harris Park. Further on is Keswick, where you are never short of anorak shops, visit it's excellent Pencil museum and the Keswick museum then visit 'Keswick Carles' or Castlerigg Stone Circle one of the most important in the UK.
