There is so much to explore in the area; take a walk from the front door and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the River Lune which runs gently through the unspoilt farmland that surrounds us; explore Sedbergh and its charming shops and cafes; take a drive into the rugged Yorkshire Dales to visit the home of Wensleydale Cheese in Hawes … Return to The Malabar for a glass of wine in front of the fire before dinner, or a bespoke massage in your room.


If you are looking for a challenge, there is plenty on offer! Hike up into the Howgills and you will feel like you are exploring unchartered territory – miles of spectacular fell walking along quiet trails where you might not see a soul. You can walk right from our front door and spend a day in glorious isolation in the hills before returning for an evening by the fire or in our local pub. Cycle trails range from family-friendly routes to wild tracks up in the hills, take your pick. Further afield there are the great peaks of the Lake District, gyhll scrambling, caving, cycling the Cote de Buttertubs near Hawes or paddle boarding, kayaking or wild swimming in the many stunning lakes and rivers on our doorstep,.

Please do let us know how much of a challenge you are hoping for and we can help to put together an itinerary for you.
