The Lake District

Cumbria is England's second largest county and has most of England's lakes, England's highest mountains and England's highest café. It also has all the Lake District National Park, part of the Yorkshire Dales and part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the middle is the Eden Valley, an unspoilt haven, close to the Lakes but far from the crowds.At the heart of the North Pennines ‘Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, Alston is an excellent base to explore this relatively undiscovered and unspoilt area, with its natural landscapes, tumbling waterfalls, and wealth of wildlife. Alston is a historic town with a good range of individual shops, tearooms, local crafts, and character inns serving traditional ales and good food. You can forget your car and enjoy many good local walks right on the doorstep, from gentle riverside rambles to challenging hikes across the fells. Local attractions include the South Tynedale Railway and the Hub Museum both run by volunteers, and Killhope lead-mining museum reflecting how the area’s geology has shaped its history.

At the hub of five routes, it is also an ideal centre for exploring Hadrian’s Wall and Northumberland National Park to the North, Durham City (world heritage site) to the east, beautiful Upper Teesdale to the south-east, the Yorkshire Dales to the south, and the Lake District to the west - all within an hour’s drive.
