The Caldbeck Fells are a delightful area to visit. Yet easy to get to access many other great parts of the Lake District and beyond.
The Caldbeck area is also ideally situated for touring the Scottish Border Country where the Roman Emperor Hadrian built his famous wall to keep out the marauding Picts and Scots. Much of Hadrian's Wall and the forts can be still seen today. Also border castles and peel towers can be seen in this area.
