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.


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.

"A great place to stay"

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.

Thank you very much for your visit and kind review. The North Pennines are often overlooked by visitors so we're especially pleased that you enjoyed them so much. We look forward to seeing you again in October. Tot ziens! Mark & Pat

"An enjoyable break guaranteed"

It was really good to see you again - there can be no better endorsement than a returning guest! The Eden Valley is a great place to be based - close to the Lakes but far from the crowds and there is so much to see around here too. We often go up to Hadrian's Wall and over into neighbouring Northumberland so we know why you like it there too.Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Mark & Pat
