The Lake District

With accessible mountains, beautiful lakes and tarns, woodlands and moorlands, the Lake District is a haven, not only for outdoor enthusiasts, but for anyone who loves peace and beauty.

The changing seasons bring with them different highlights – Spring is a time of new life with baby lambs, Wordsworth's daffodils, and walks through bluebell woods. Summer brings it's own magic, either lazing by a lake or enjoying the view from the high mountain peaks. Beautiful Autumn colours hopefully bring along an Indian Summer and wild winter on the frosty fells, makes the most of an open fire and a seasonal glass of mulled wine.

The beautiful lakes with dramatic fells rising from there shores are just part of a great experience of excellent local food and fantastic activities. A holiday here can live long in the memory and get you coming back for more.


The Eden Valley is nestled between the grandeur of the Lake District and the beauty of the Pennines. The area has lots to offer holidaymakers. Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed, Eden valley is ideally situated for cycling, climbing, gliding and much more. The famous Coast to Coast and Pennine Way walking routes, both run through the Eden Valley, plus there is plenty of walking right from the front door of Swallow's Rest.

For those who want a more relaxing break, the Settle to Carlisle Railway is a must, voted the most scenic in England. The area also boasts many country pubs, serving lovely food and local, real ales. Penrith is 9 miles away, providing all the amenities you could need for your stay.
