Things to see and do during your stay in Eskdale

The King George IV is perfectly located in the Western Lake District with so much to see and do from our doorstep. Many activities just a short drive away including England's steepest road, England's deepest body of water but so many where is car is not needed. Whether you are into outdoor pursuits, family adventures, leisurely walks or historical attractions, we have it all. But also, to simply come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this very special part of the UNESCO World World Heritage, Lake District National Park.

Eskdale & Wasdale Valleys

Our location in the Eskdale Valley means we have walks right from the inn door, no need to get the car out with plentiful low, mid and high level routes including forest trails, river walks and fells. A short drive and there is the mighty Scafell Pike from Eskdale side for the more adventurous and Hardknott Pass, England’s steepest road and Roman fort to admire. Nearby Wasdale Valley is always a must visit with great walks and stand up paddle board hire on Wastwater, England’s deepest body of water. We’re a haven for both mountain biking and road biking too with trails, Biker Fell and leisurely cycling bridle ways.

Wasdale and Eskdale
Muncaster Castle

Muncaster Castle

Muncaster Castle is an award winning attraction just a short drive away. As one of the most haunted buildings in the UK, a castle tour is a great thing to do as well as the daily flying displays of their hawks and owls and walking around the 70 acres of gardens. Look out for special events during the year especially their Halloween week when scary meets fun and foolery!

Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass & Eskdale railway (aka The La’al Ratty!) passes right near us so you can view where you eat, drink or stay from a different viewpoint. This 7 mile narrow gauge railway starts at Ravenglass on the coast or Dalegarth in the Eskdale Valley travelling between the two stations through the magnificent countryside in the Western Lake District.

Golf Courses Eskdale and Western Lakes


Golf brings many visitors to stay, eat and drink with us thanks to two fantastic courses on our doorstep. Eskdale Golf Course, a parkland course with trees and water features as well as Seascale Gold Club, a links course right on the coast looking out to the Isle of Man. For any golfers, they offer two excellent but different golfing experiences.


The West Cumbria coastline always surprises people when they first visit. Miles of sandy beaches including Drigg, Seascale and St Bees and some of the most amazing sunsets. Drigg dunes are a Site of Special Scientific Interest for the birds and plants, Seascale, great for blowing away the cobwebs and having an ice cream and then up to St Bees where the official start of the C2C walk starts by dipping your boots in the sea.
