The Cumbria/Lake District region
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.
The Penrith area
Penrith is a real town in a very convenient location - close to the M6 motorway and on the main west coast railway line. Although it is only 6 miles from stunning Lake Ullswater it doesn't live from tourism like Keswick or Windermere. It is a great place for food with lots of cafés, restaurants, pubs, a farmers market, old fashioned grocers shops and modern supermarkets. Near Penrith is the Eden Valley with Lacy's Caves, Long Meg & her daughters, Coombs Wood and attractions such as Eden Ostrich World, Penrith Laser Wars, Eden Soaring (gliding) as well as the South Tynedale Railway, the Hub museum & Nenthead mines up in the North Pennines.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Leave the M6 motorway at junction 40 - PENRITH and take the A66 east till the next roundabout where the A66 crosses the A6 and the A686 starts. Follow the A686 towards ALSTON - the North Pennines. After 5 miles you will reach the military-style bridge crossing the River Eden at LANGWATHBY. Continue on the A686 till you reach MELMERBY. Just as you are leaving the village you will see a minor road to the left signposted GAMBLESBY. There is a small caravan site on the left. Follow this road for just over one mile until you reach the village. Church Court Cottages are on the right hand side opposite St.John's Church.

Wonderful welcome with a bottle of wine in the fridge. The owners Mark and Patricia stayed in the background but were always there if needed. The cottage was well presented and suited our needs. Great walking country and we walked every day. Good pub for meals in Melmerby the next village, great portions, too much really. Rest assured we will be back in the near future.

The cottage is very well situated. Gamblesby is a tiny village, nearest shop is 3 miles away.
But it is surrounded by nature, lots of footpaths.
The Lake District is beautiful, I know, but I... more
