There is plenty to do in the area of The Old Sawmill. Dodd Wood, belonging to the forestry commission is just outside our front door, with its many trails, walks and cycling to suit all ages. There are superb views from the forest, and many examples of wildlife to look out for.
On the other side of Bassenthwaite Lake there are Osprey nesting and a viewing area is located in Dodd Wood.
