Redmain House dates from the 1690’s and is a traditional Cumbrian long house with attached stone barns from which the holiday cottages have been converted to a very high standard, whilst retaining many original features.

Closeby are some of the Western lakes most imposing fells Skiddaw, Grassmoor, Red Pike, Highstyle and Grisedale Pike. The Western lakes include Bassenthwaite Lake with Sailing Club and Osprey view point, Loweswater for rowing and walking.

Derwentwater for kayaking and boat rides and island hopping, Buttermere for walking and sheer beauty, Crummock Water and the jewel in the wild crown is Ennerdale, superb biking and walking and getting away from the crowds and home to the famous Pillar Rock and Steeple. If you don’t fancy walking the big hills take time to visit the Solway Coast ANOB with long sandy beaches and beautiful views across the Solway Firth towards the Scottish Hills.

Ideally situated, this quiet hamlet forms part of the Allerdale Ramble near Bassenthwaite Lake, and the Coast to Coast (C2C) path is nearby. You can relax in the garden taking in beautiful views of Skiddaw and Grassmoor, or amble along to the next village of Blindcrake admiring the valley scenery with the River Derwent below. Keswick is 8 miles away.

We can recommend some less daunting walks that still give spectacular views. Other activities nearby include horse riding, climbing, fishing, canoeing, sailing, Whinlatter Forest Park, golf and well-established biking routes to suit all abilities. Cockermouth has plenty of restaurants from traditional to Chinese, Indian, vegetarian and Italian and some very interesting local pubs and brews. So if you fancy dining out there is plenty of choice and some will deliver to the door.
