The Cumbria region

There is far more to see in the beautiful North Cumbria area than can be detailed on a single page, but here are a few of the highlights, to help you plan your stay with us. (All distances quoted below are from our Heads Nook Hall Postcode CA8 9AA).

Hadrian’s Wall is now a World Heritage Site, built by the Emperor Hadrian in AD122, spanning coast to coast across the north of England, 84 miles from the Solway Firth in the west to South Shields in the east. The wall is the largest Roman Monument in Europe. Stretches are still intact, and a section can be seen 500 yards to the north of Lanercost (6.6 Miles) at the Banks. The collections from Hadrian's Wall are mostly contained within 9 museums, on or close to the Wall and all are within driving distance.

Major Roman Wall sites within a short drive are:-

Birdoswald (9.3 Miles)

A Visitor Centre brings to life the fascinating history of Birdoswald, and as well as telling the story of the Roman connections, it also describes the border raids in the middle ages, and about the Victorians and twentieth century archaeological discoveries.

At Birdoswald you can see the early turf wall built in AD 122, over the original fort. The turf wall, stone wall, Harrow's Scar Mile castle (a short walk along the wall) and the fort itself are all visible reminders of the Roman occupation.

Roman Vindolanda (18.5 miles)

Notable here is the large collection of writing tablets that provide an unparalleled insight into daily life on the frontier.

Brampton, Carlisle

The Lake District National Park (19.2 miles to the northern end and 39 miles from Keswick) is England's largest National Park. It includes Scafell Pike - its highest mountain, Wastwater - its deepest lake, and thriving communities like Keswick and Bowness-on-Windermere.

Lanercost Priory (6.6 miles) was founded in approx 1169 as an Augustinian monastery. It was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536 during the dissolution of the monasteries. Parts of the original foundation survive and are open to the public run by English Heritage. There is an excellent Tea Room adjacent to the Priory serving delectable light lunches, fine wines and afternoon teas, yummy flapjacks, gorgeous home-made cakes and great coffee. All meals are freshly prepared from the finest local produce seven days a week.

Dumfries and Galloway is one of Scotland’s hidden treasures, unspoilt it offers a number of historic castles and gardens, artists’ studios and an unspoilt coastline which is a haven for wildlife. Gretna Green (15 Miles), famous for its runaway weddings over the blacksmith’s anvil is situated just over the border off the M74. There is also a large Gretna Village Retail Outlet Park (15.3 Miles) with major luxury stores such as M&S.

Talkin Tarn Country Park, (6 Miles) Is close to the historic market town of Brampton (6.7miles), nestles in a 165 acre site, containing a glacial tarn surrounded by mature woodland and gentle rolling meadows with the stunning Pennine Hills as a backdrop.

The Tarn has traditionally been used for recreation since at least the middle of the 1800s. It was a popular destination for Victorians from Brampton and Carlisle and accessed by train from the North East. The Tarn has a 1.3 mile circular path that is ideal for a gentle stroll. This path is hard surfaced and accessible to all. There are also three way marked trails of varying lengths; 1.5km, 2.5km and 3.5km starting from the car park and on into woods and fields.

Carlisle (7.3 Miles) is Cumbria's capital city nicknamed the Border City. It has a long history, well portrayed in the Tullie House Museum, and contains Cumbria's only cathedral. It is historically a major railway junction, with routes to Scotland, London, Newcastle, West Cumbria and the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway.

Standing opposite Tullie House in the city it has dominated for nine centuries; Carlisle Castle was a constantly updated working fortress until well within living memory. Its rich and varied visitor attractions reflect its long and eventful history. Even before the medieval castle was begun, this site was an important Roman fortress. Today, the castle still plays a prominent role in Cumbria as one of its best loved landmarks. With Border Reivers tours, picnic area, a unique gift shop.

"Beautifully appointed property"

Had a lovely stay, the cottage had everything you could possibly want. The underfloor heating to the living room was very cosy!

Karen - many thanks for the excellent review - glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
