The Cumbria region

The Lake District is justly world famous, and more beautiful than can be imagined. Inspiration of William Wordsworth and the Lake Poets, and many other later artists and writers, including the great Beatrix Potter.

It is a great playground for the active walker with breathtaking new surprises round every corner. While the central towns are busy, it is easy to get away from the crowds and be alone all day.

The Lake District has some of the country's top restaurants, the excellent Theatre by the Lake at Keswick, Abbott Hall art gallery in Kendal, Zeffirelli's cinema in Ambleside. activity centres, and many other attractions.

Eden Valley

Morland is in the heart of the rolling Eden Valley centred on the River Eden with the Lake District on the west and the Pennines on the East. It is a quiet area but very convenient for the M6 motorway and the main London train line. It is lush farming country specialising in dairy, beef and sheep with mixed woods.

Very good touring base for the Lakes, the Pennines, the Dales and Hadrian's Wall, all within 45 minutes. Local walks and cycle rides in all directions. Fishing on the Eden, and scenic local golf courses.

Pretty local towns like Appleby and Kirkby Stephen, mediaeval castles and pele towers, attractive villages.

"Fantastic - felt like I'd just walked into the Secret Garden!"

We couldn't be happier with our lovely farm cottage in Morland, right on the edge of the lake district. The place was cozy yet spacious, with everything you might need, and the hosts were kind and helpful yet unobtrusive. It was a great escape from busy London - would definitely recommend!
