On Your Doorstep

The beauty of this area is that it’s open access land across five fells with countless footpaths that are easy to navigate, all on your doorstep! There is a gate a few metres from the site, taking you straight onto Hutton Roof Crags, passing by a badger set & onto the Limestone Link. The Rakes, a limestone outcrop popular with climbers is nearby, and the limestone pavements on Newbiggin Crags offer spectacular and unique landscapes.

Whin Yeats Farm & Dairy

A public footpath runs through the farm with cheese, milk & eggs for sale from their converted cabin. Find out more on our Whin Yeats Farm Page!
