The Dash is an unspoiled traditional hill farm, completely secluded, and located on the northern side of Skiddaw. "Perhaps one of the rare places you can see the sea, a waterfall and a lake all in one view!!"
The farm nestles at the foot of the famous Whitewater Dash waterfall which sits at the head of Dash Valley looking down to Bassenthwaite Lake and on to the Solway Coast and to Scotland in the distance.
Set in 150 acres of private farmland, the property has a garden and there is direct access on to the open fell.

No one would dispute that the area is a veritable paradise for walkers and climbers, but it also must be said there are a great many fascinating places to visit by car.
Fortunately for us, the vast majority of visitors don't venture further north than Keswick. The Dash is perhaps only a 15 minute drive north of Keswick and yet the area and roads are perfectly quiet and still.
