About the location


Brampton 5 miles; Hadrian's Wall 7 miles; Carlisle 16 miles.

The small rural hamlet of Tindale Fell sits astride a small hill overlooking an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A beautiful and undiscovered area with outstanding walks onto lovely fells with old cairns and awe-inspiring views of heathland, heather and gorse strewn hillsides. Ideally placed for exploring northern Cumbria, including not-to-be-missed Hadrian's Wall, the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth and the dramatic northern Lake District National Park. The nearby market town of Brampton has a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border raiders from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings. Bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton, which is now a shop. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 180 acres, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Further south is Gelt Woods which is an ancient woodland with the River Gelt running through. A superb base for exploring this historic and scenically beautiful area.
