About the neighbourhood
The valley of Eskdale begins via Hard Knott Pass, a steep mountain road that is one of the most challenging drives in the Lakes. At the valley top is an old Roman fort built between AD120 and AD138, which is open to visitors. There are spectacular views from there right down to the Irish Sea and the old fishing village of Ravenglass, where there is a ruined Roman bath-house. Nearby is Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owl Centre, with lots for children to do all year round. The bubbling River Esk runs right through Eskdale, flowing to the estuary at Ravenglass. The river has super, natural pools for swimming, especially at Trough House Bridge and Forge Bridge. Between Church House and the river is St Catherine's Church (300m away), which dates back to the 12th century. By the river at the si...
