By far the best known and most popular destination for visitors to Cumbria, The Lake District boundary is just a few miles from Dalson. When you come to stay at Orchard Cottage you will find lots of inside knowledge available for you to browse at your leisure to find the best routes (for instance, to get to the Lake District National Park, take the Welton road, climb up the B5299 for Caldbeck and you will see the best view of the Solway Plain bar none. Just one of the little known off the beaten track routes we'd love to tell you about!)
