The Cumbria/Lake District

The River Eden is entirely Cumbrian and is one of the few large rivers in England that flows northwards. The source of the river is on the high limestone fells above Mallerstang Common, near the North Yorkshire border, and makes its way across eastern Cumbria, with the hills of the North Pennines to the East, and the fells of the Lake District to the west, to Carlisle. Here it merges with other rivers to form the great Solway Firth estuary, before reaching the open sea, 90 miles (145 km) from its source.

For much of its course, the river is accompanied by the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway, a spectacularly scenic route saved from extinction in the 1960s by the efforts of local enthusiasts. The railway is a perfect means for accessing the Eden Valley.

The Eden Valley is green and fertile but in medieval times the valley was vulnerable to Scottish raids, and the number of pele towers and castles in the area are testament to a turbulent and often violent past.

Penrith

Melmerby is one of the fell side villages that nestle under the Pennines. It is proud to boast an 11 acre village green, a pub serving meals seven days a week, a village shop and tea room and the the famous "Village Bakery" serving breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea. Behind the village the foot hills of the Pennines offer excellent walking and looking the other way the Lake District mountains make a beautiful skyline. Lake Ullswater is 30 mins away
