Allerdale is the capital of doing

Great outdoors

Sailing, walking, cycling, paragliding, climbing – we cater for everyone – and with two of England’s highest peaks close by, you won’t be short of a challenge.

Stunning fells

Explore Britain’s most stunning scenery and walks, with a hike up Skiddaw or a gentle amble along the shores of Buttermere. And don’t forget a walk along the Solway’s beaches – for some reviving sea air.

King of the mountains

For a cycling buff, Allerdale has it all being home of the Coast to Coast and Hadrian’s Cycleway. For budding Kings of the Mountains, head over the Honister or Newlands Pass – or the aptly named Fangs Brow near Loweswater.

 Cycle paths

To get the miles in, the rolling Solway coast is perfect cycling country too and don’t forget about the smooth, off-road cycle path up the coast from Maryport to Allonby (and which may, by the time you read this, have reached Silloth).

Mountain biking

We’re a mountain biker’s paradise with loads of off-road routes and the fantastic Whinlatter forest park.

On the water

If water’s your thing, take a dip in a lake, scull a paddle board or canoe, or just relax on Derwent Water’s lakes cruises. See the Lakes in a whole new way from a paraglider. Fancy climbing?
