We have 4 of our own Alpacas now. They are just pets so if you'd like to meet them, please just ask but they are not available for walks. However at the end of the valley Wastwater Alpacas do offer Alpaca walks as well as meet and greet experiences.

Muncaster Castle has been owned by the Pennington family for over 900 years and is a stately house with lovely grounds and a good calendar of events throughout the year. The Hawk & Owl Centre is very popular as are the flying displays!
More than a thousand acres of golden dunes sweep their way down the western coast. This is a great place to escape the crowds. The dunes connect to Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the National park. With Roman ruins, an historic estuary and adjacent Nature Reserves of Eskmeals and the Drigg Dunes & Gullery.
Whitehaven Harbour & Beacon
Historically, once one of the busiest ports in England, its businesses were major players in the rum and ship building market. The highly recommended Rum Story shows how the town prospered but also illuminates the dark side to the business - the slave trade. The Beacon visitor attraction on the harbour side also lets you into some of the town's best kept secrets. Did you know that John Paul Jones, the father of the US navy attacked his home port during the American War of Independence and that George Washington's grandmother lived in the town?
Hardknott Roman Fort
This remote and dramatically-sited fort was founded under Hadrian's rule in the 2nd century. Well-marked remains include the headquarters building, commandant's house and bath house. The site of the parade ground survives beside the fort, and the road which Hardknott guarded can be traced for some distance as an earthwork.
Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway
The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is a narrow gauge steam railway known locally as "L'aal Ratty". A delightful 7 mile ride from Ravenglass into the heart of the Eskdale Valley.
