THE LOCAL AREA
The Sally Inn has a wonderful quiet location in the Northern Fells of Cumbria, surrounded by magnificent mountains and beautiful Lake District scenery. There is so much to do no matter what your interests are.
Whether it is fell walking, sailing, climbing, cycling, horse riding, paragliding or mountain biking, there is something for everyone.
The walking around this part of the Lake District National Park is second to none. Blencathra, Skiddaw, Helvellyn, and the Northern Fells of Caldbeck are all in close proximity. For the less energetic, there are lovely walks around the shores of Lake Derwentwater & Bassenthwaite and along the former railway line to Keswick.
Derwentwater is popular for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, rowing, fishing and has its own Keswick Launch Service stopping at several points around the Lake, allowing you to walk so far and cruise the rest.
Keswick itself is well known for its excellent restaurants and shopping, with a market on Saturdays and Thursday, offering something for every taste and budget. It's also THE place in the Lake District for outdoor shops and equipment.
There are many other local attractions to enjoy too, including Rheged Discovery Centre on the A66 towards Penrith (winner of the global "BA Tourism for Tomorrow Awards"), the Theatre By The Lake, the Pencil Museum, Honister Slate Mine, and Derwentwater Marina.
There are many footpaths leading out of the village so you can leave you car behind, and for those on two wheels, the two long distance cycle routes nearby, namely the C2C (Coast to Coast) and the Reivers Route are not far away.
Paragliding is very popular in this area with popular launching areas off Latrigg, Skiddaw, Blease Fell on Blencathra and several sites on Clouch Head.
See the Cumbria Tourist Board website for more information about this beautiful part of the Lake District.
