About the location
Penrith 4 miles; Ullswater 12 miles.
The enchanting, unspoilt rural village of Edenhall is situated in the Eden Valley and is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Edenhall with its sandstone cottages and attractive scenery should be at the top of your holiday hit list if you're looking for a quaint and rural destination in Cumbria. The River Eden runs nearby and the area is renowned for its excellent trout and salmon fishing, along with walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing. Just four miles from Penrith, yet deep in the peaceful Eden countryside, Edenhall is a big hit for those in search of seclusion. Think single lane country roads flanked by time forgotten drystone, along with lofty sandstone houses beside stone-built terraces, the perfect place to relax and unwind amid the charming countryside. Down the road from Edenhall is Langwathby, another attractive Cumbrian village with a handful of country pubs serving fine fare and quality cask ales. The road to Langwathby is thought to be one of the prettiest in Cumbria and is regularly voted among the top ten scenic driving roads in the world. The Eden Gorge, between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is one of Cumbria's best-kept secrets, and is well worth exploring, plus the local railway station is a stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain. Within easy reach is Rheged, which provides an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema, whilst Brougham Castle, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England), Hadrian's Wall and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away. Visit Alston, the highest market town in England, or take a day trip to discover the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
