About Limefitt Park
Limefitt Park is a beautiful peaceful old sheep farm nestled deep within the Troutbeck Valley capturing the very spirit of the Lake District National Park. The Park features Lakeland stone buildings, mature trees and traditional stone walls. The valley rises steeply upwards to meet the peaks of Yoke, Froswick and High Street which dominate the landscape. The Troutbeck stream runs through Limefitt Park, set against a spectacular backdrop and diverse terrain.
Things to Do Nearby
There is plenty to do and see without the need to travel far. It is only a few miles to the traditional Lake District towns of Ambleside or Bowness-on-Windermere where there are some buildings which date as far back as the 17th century and exhibit their original architecture.
For the more adventurous, the visitor centre at Brockhole is certainly worthy of a visit. Set on the shores of the world-renowned Lake Windermere, many activities are included in the entrance price, with something to interest all ages, notably the ‘Tree Top Trek’.
Just slightly further afield is Coniston Water or the charming Lake District towns of Kendal (famous for its Mint Cake) and Keswick. Also popular with young and old alike is the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ based in the town of Bowness. The Lake District is undeniably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of the UK.
Dickens Lodge is open all year round and offers a perfect base from which to explore ‘The Lakes’ for the first time or the hundredth.
