Askew Mire is close to very little but open space. Across the road are the quiet Northern Fells, the Reivers cycle route and Cumbria Way go past the gate.
Please note, there is no television and no landline. Mobile is varied, but Wifi is excellent. The nearest public transport is eight miles away, with an occasional bus coming to Caldbeck (three miles away).
Guiding throughout the Lakes can be provided, check me out with a search for Mike Simpson Mountaineering. My website will fill you in.
