"If you like walking, cycling, fishing or just a get together with friends then this is the perfect spot." 

The Western Lakes is the quieter area of the Lake District, away from the crowds at Ambleside, however that doesn't mean there isn't loads to do.........

Mountain Biking
Whether its the Forest Tracks of Ennerdale valley, the man-made mahem of Whinlatter or the extensive and more technically challenging bridle paths in and around Ennerdale, Buttermere and Borrowdale, the Lake District is heaven for Mountain Bikers.  Also try searching for "the Borrowdale Bash" a circular and really enjoyable day-out on both high mountain  and lower level bridle paths.
Climbing and Walking
Directly adjacent to the fells, Felldyke is well situated to enjoy the quieter Western Fells.  Access to some of the best climbing and walking in the UK in : Borrowdale; Wasdale; Buttermere / Lorton Valley and Ennerdale Valley (Pillar Rock). All are within easy reach.
We can personally provide: Guided walking and scrambling; navigation and mountain craft coaching by qualified Mountain Leaders. 

For training towards formal  qualifications to allow you to lead groups and instruct or for climbing or guiding contact Andy Brown at 

Via Ferrata and Go Ape
If you don't climb, but want a climbing experience without  hiring a guide, try one of the very few Via Ferrata in the UK, located at Hinister Slate Mine.  or Go Ape at Whinlatter
10 minutes walk from Felldyke bunkhouse is Cogra Moss, where Cockermouth Angling Association stock trout, Flyfishing  is available via a permit issued by Cockermouth Angling Association. Details can be found on their website

Fishing in the Lakes is also possible, with Course and Fly fishing on day permits.  The best resource for checking where, when and how is

Horse Riding

The Rowrah track is close-by, for teams wishing to attend race meets and wanting a place to stay, Felldyke is ideally situated.
