About Grizebeck

This is a place that is all "Morning Glory" as the sun rises over the vast sweep of the moors, nature seems at peace with herself showing an intringent range of moorland colour and newly awaken wildlife creatures, out in search of food.

The village is a typical stone Cumbrian village with a lively atmosphere, lying in the shadow of Gawthwaite Moor, it makes the perfect base to explore South Cumbria and the Lakes. It is wonderful walking country with the Duddon estuary and many other splendid beauty spots. The landscape is mostly moorland, interspersed with the occasional farmstead surrounded by soft meadows flooded with cattle and sheep. Here walkers can amble along in perfect peace, unhindered by man or noise, save for friendly fellow walkers who offer a cheerful wave and maybe stop to chat, telling of all that they have seen.

In this lonely landscape there are breathtaking views in all directions. The attraction of Coniston Water and Windermere lie a mere 25 minutes away. Close by there are Stone Circles from the Bronze-Age, these can be found near to a tarn used by Seagulls as a nesting place.

Visitors will find plenty of inns in the region, in Grizebeck, of particular note is the Greyhound Inn, this is a 300 year old building which retains many of its original features.

This is a gorgeous place for a restful holiday, it offers the perfect blend of magnificent countryside and coast.
