Rose Cottage, Threlkeld - Things to do

Things to do Availability

So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.

George Mallory, on Mt Everest
Apart from climbing Mount Everest, the Keswick region is a great one to plan almost any holiday in, as shown in these films on Vimeo:
Walks A few of our favourite walks in the area (to be added to - watch this space!)

Eagle Crag, in the Stonethwaite Valley, Borrowdale

Watendlath, a loop walk from Rosthwaite over Lingy End and back via Stonethwaite

Scafell Pike, with a 360 deg view from the highest point in England

And if you do go walking, we can recommend I never solo just in case - something to alert your friends if something goes wrong and you don't make it back as planned.
