The Cumbria region

Don't tell anyone, but the Eden Valley and the surrounding fells are some of the best parts of Cumbria. While the crowds rush into the Lake District to battle with each other, we bask in near solitude on the Howgills or on the Cumbrian flanks of the Pennines or Yorkshire Dales. Yes, they all meet at the Eden Valley, itself an idyllic triangle of countryside stretching from Penrith to Brough, Kirkby Stephen and Tebay (well known to drivers on the M6 as one of the best service stations).

Kirkby Stephen

On the platform side you can watch steam-hauled excursion trains or diesel-hauled 2,000-tonne coal trains blasting uphill to Ais Gill summit, or look the other way to

see glorious views of the fells.

The spectacular valley of Mallerstang & Wild Boar Fell are right on your doorstep, the Lake District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks are in easy reach as is Hadrian’s Wall to the north. It’s the perfect base for walking the fells, cycling, or general exploring - as well as travelling on the spectacular Settle & Carlisle line.

Kirkby Stephen sits about halfway along Wainwright's Coast to Coast path and has more than its fair share of tea shops, cafes and fish and chip shops to satisfy the hungry walker.
