Ravenstonedale in Cumbria is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village is surrounded by rolling Cumbrian countryside and quiet country lanes that offer a wealth of leisure activities such as walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and bird watching. The picturesque Eden Valley is nearby. The nearest market town is Kirkby Stephen, just 4 miles away.
The village of Ravenstonedale lies at the foot of the Howgill fells, described by Wainwright as resembling a herd of sleeping elephants and a paradise for walkers. The Howgills offer quieter walking than the central Lakeland fells and guests of the King's Head can walk directly onto the fells without first needing to drive anywhere.
The King's Head is situated between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is therefore an ideal base from which to visit both.
