Our pretty, wild-life friendly garden and the surrounding fields, fells and woodland are home to roe deer, hares, badgers, red squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs, rabbits and a wide variety of bird life. Listen out for the woodpecker, cuckoo and owls. We are visited regularly by a cock pheasant who struts his way down across the field and garden. You may also see the neighbouring farmers’ special breed sheep and pet goat grazing in the fields.

Lamplugh is a picturesque cluster of homes and farms surrounding the Grade II* listed church of ‘St Michaels and All Angels’. There are many quiet lanes, by-ways, woods, fells and river sides to explore straight out of The Loft's door.
This area of outstanding natural beauty boasts Loweswater (the Lake) about 2.5 miles away, Ennerdale Water and Crummock Water, both about 4 miles away, and Buttermere, Bassenthwaite and Wastwater just beyond. Here you can enjoy a leisurely lakeside stroll or perhaps a more energetic walk over the local fells, so beloved by Alfred Wainwright, who wrote the famous Wainwright Guides to The Lake District.
For those who prefer to see the landscape on horseback, pony trekking is available at Bradley’s Riding Centre on Cold Fell above Ennerdale.
Boat hire is available at Crummock (National Trust) and on Derwentwater at nearby Keswick.
Keen climbers will find many good outdoor rock faces in West Cumbria. Honister Slate Mine offers a guided Via Ferrata, along the old route that miners would have used. There are also two good climbing centres in Keswick which cater for adults & children and offer guided outdoor climbing & ghyll scrambling (weather permitting) and a ‘Clip and Climb Centre’ in Maryport.
As well as the delightful rural Inns and Pubs, the local towns of Cockermouth, Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport and further afield, Penrith and Carlisle, provide shops, supermarkets, theatres, cinemas, night clubs, cafes, restaurants, museums, art galleries and other Visitor Attractions.
