(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Miterdale Car Park is a grassy informal car park sheltered in the valley bottom beside the River Mite. It provides a great place for a family picnic followed by a game of cricket, pooh sticks and paddling. Alternatively for the more adventurous it is the ideal base for exploring the mountains and fells of West Cumbria, cycling or walking through Miterdale forest
