Quality accommodation in the Upper Eden Valley

The Upper Eden Valley offers a vast array of walks, from strenuous mountain peaks to a gentle stroll along the River Eden or one of the disused railways. Although you will find yourself in the wilds of Cumbria, the Upper Eden Valley is easily accessible from the M6 or A1 or via the spectacular Settle to Carlisle railway, which passes through the friendly market town of Kirkby Stephen. We would love to welcome you to a place that offers spectacular walking and real hospitality. There are some wonderful places to stay; here are just a few...
