About the location
Penrith 9 miles; Carlisle 18 miles.
The delightful rural village of Kirkoswald 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. Kirkoswald has two excellent pubs, both serving fine quality food, a 12th century church and a shop and Post Office. The River Eden runs nearby and the area is renowned for its superb trout and salmon fishing, along with walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing. There are literally miles of glorious paths following the river's course, with welcoming spots for riverside picnics and sightseeing. Expect caves and gorges, and look out for the ten unusual benchmark sculptures along the way. 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. Brougham Castle, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England), Hadrian's Wall, the town of Penrith and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away. The stunning scenery of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks are within reach, making Kirkoswald a convenient place to stay.
