There is so much to do here that you just won't get around to doing everything, so here are some great ideas beyond the

obvious "go climb" a mountain!  


We can organise an amazing day out on a 4x4 expedition in partnership with our friends at Kankku. These

exhilarating full or half day drives out will get you deep into the mountains to take in some extreme terrain

under the expert guidance of Richard and his team of instructors.


We can also organise self drive safari using ex military Defenders, where you become the boss, Kankku simply

supply you with  route maps and expert knowledge. Have a look at and remember if you are

staying at The OC you get a lovely discount, just email us for details of current prices.  

Mountain Goat

Just ask David or Laura for advice on what to do!


We are now working closely with Mountain Goat Tours to provide you with guided and driven tours of the Lake District


There are three different tours including "High Adventure", the popular "10 lakes" tour and not forgetting local hero,

the "Beatrix Potter" tour..


These amazing day outs all start from outside our B&B so you don’t have to gulp your breakfast down! Just simply have a

look at, decide on your chosen tour and which day you want to go and then email us direct to and we will do all the hard work for you,  you just simply turn up on the day and pay the driver!
