Go west! Our mini guide to the western Lakes

Ennerdale, Western Lake District

Call us biased but here at the Pheasant Inn, we believe the Western Lake District to be the most naturally beautiful part of our National Park. We have our pick of every Lake District draw card - staggering mountains, rugged coastline, rolling green valleys and of course, the lakes, tarns and reservoirs that give the area its famous name. Why not take a tour of our rippling waters on your next stay at the Pheasant – you’ll find a great range of walks and activities around the Western Lakes.

Daffodil-hunting near the Pheasant Inn

Yellow Daffodils

Clusters of daffodils and their sunshine-yellow trumpets are a sight for winter-weary eyes this season. We like to think of the Lake District as their spiritual home, as Cumbrian poet William Wordsworth dedicated one of his most famous poems to the cheery flowers.
