Staveley village is situated just four miles from Kendal at the mouth of the Kentmere Valley. The village is popular amongst walkers and bikers as it provides such great access into the Lake District National Park. With the National Cycle Route and the Dales Way footpath running through Staveley there are a limitless number of walks, runs and rides accessible from Avondale Bungalow.
Three hills overlook the village of Staveley; Reston Scar, Piked Howe (aka Craggy Wood) and Lily Fell. Reston Scar and Piked Howe sit either side of the opening into the Kentmere Valley which mark the beginning of a large horseshoe chain of hills and popular 13 mile walking route known as the Kentmere Round. The 19.3 mile Garburn Pass mountain bike route is a fantastic and popular, technical ride which sets out from the centre of Staveley.
