When it comes to natural beauty, it's hard to beat the county of Cumbria. Sitting right on the border with Scotland, Cumbria boasts some of England's most dramatic scenery. From the glassy waters of Lake District to the heady heights of some of the county's highest peaks, this rural county has it all. Among Cumbria's foremost attractions is the prehistoric stone circle at Castlerigg - one of the oldest and most atmospheric in England. Located a short distance from Keswick, the Castlerigg Stone Circle is close to some fantastic hotels and guesthouses.
Like many of the United Kingdom's stone circles, Castlerigg was erected sometime around the year 3,000 BC, near the beginning of the Neolithic period. The atmospheric stone circle features an outer ring of some 38 stones, and measures 30m in diameter. It is the most visited in Cumbria, due largely to the impressive position. The site offers broad panoramic views that encompass a number of Cumbria's highest peaks, including Grasmoor, Skiddaw and Helvellyn.
While there is a small amount of parking available at Castlerigg Stone Circle, most visitors choose to walk there. From nearby Keswick, the walk takes around half an hour and is relatively straightforward. Dogs are welcome at the site, though there are grazing sheep on the route so owners should be wary and keep their dogs under control at all times.
Many of the finest hotels in Cumbria are located in the popular Lake District. As Castlerigg Stone Circle is situated in the heart of the lakes, there's plenty of choice for holidaymakers keen to see the prehistoric attraction.
Nearby Keswick is packed with exquisite bed and breakfasts and hotels. Visitors can take their pick from grand rural retreats and welcoming cottage guesthouses.
Many of Keswick's guesthouses are set within charming, intimate period buildings. The three-star Dalkeith Guest House is a perfect example. The property offers free WiFi, a free breakfast and spectacular views out across the hills of rural Cumbria.
Those who favour a little more room can head to the Keswick Country House Hotel. The long list of facilities includes a number of meeting rooms and some on-site tennis courts.
