There are other local attractions just beyond the house and grounds, including:
the historic town of Broughton-in-Furness at the bottom of the short hill
the wider area of the Duddon valley, described as a jewel in the crown of Cumbria. This is situated between Coniston and Eskdale, and is largely remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic valley of the Lake District. The Duddon valley will delight walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside. Click for details.
