After a nice country walk why not pop in to the Charles Bathurst inn for a nice cold drink or a hearty home cooked meal. The Inn is popular with locals and walkers a like... Its a real hub for the community. The popular market town of Reeth is only a short drive away where you are able to full-fill all your shopping needs.
