: St Bees , Whitehaven
The village of Braithwaite has the best of both worlds - a quiet, safe, interesting village, where there are a choice of 4 village pubs to eat and drink -or if you want more choice Keswick is only 2 miles.
The area is a haven for walkers and Braithwaite is overlooked by the stunning Coledale Horseshoe - a magnificent walk with amazing views
Another historical Cumbrian town is Cockermouth, only twelve miles West of Braithwaite. Birthplace of the poet Wordsworth, Cockermouth is also home to the famous Jennings Brewery (where tours are available!)
Driving over Whinlatter Pass takes you to Lorton Valley, a stunning area which leads you to Crummock water, Loweswater and Buttermere . From Buttermere you can head either over Newlands Pass into Newlands valley or Honister Pass into Borrowdale valley, both which have tremendous views.
Other nearby recreational interests include the Keswick Golf Club (6 miles) and sailing on Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite (1 mile)
