Definitely off the beaten track, these wonderful holiday homes stand in the most beautiful of settings. Lying to the western side of Corney Fell, which is dominated by Black Combe, you will enjoy the most extensive views.
Located on the fringes of the Lake District National Park. Close by are Corney Fell to the East and the coastline to the West.
There are two paths, one steeper but shorter, the other gentle but very long. As a less well known mountain it is a wonderful experience due to only encountering a few other people. You meet ten times as many sheep as people! This gives it a wonderful sense of privacy and discovery. It takes about 2 and 1/2 hours to walk up from Silecroft (and under 2 hours to descend). On a clear day the views from the top are breathtaking. The sea takes up over half of the horizon with the Isle of Man to the west, you can even see the Blackpool Tower on the far headland. On reaching the summit, the rolling northern Lake District fells can be seen. At the summit there is a circular stone wall which provides a perfect, sheltered picnic spot where the scenic views can be soaked in.
