Sitting between the Pennines and the Lake District Fells, the beautiful Eden Valley is a mix of lush green countryside, traditional towns, attractive sandstone villages and lonesome fells. To the south are the peaceful Howgill Fells, a favourite of Wainwright. The area is a hidden paradise for walkers and adventurers.
The River Eden is one of the finest salmon and trout rivers in the North of England and you can enjoy great riverside walks. Look out for Lacy’s Caves, carved out of sandstone right on the riverbank or go in search of the Eden Benchmarks, ten intriguing sculptures in dramatic settings which act as welcome seats.
