Only a mile from the village of the same name, Edenhall was originally used by the drovers crossing the nearby ford and driving their cattle south. Today it is an immaculately restored house in secluded grounds, outside the village of Edenhall, adjacent to the River Eamont, in the Eden Valley and 15 minutes away from Ullswater. Edenhall comfortably accommodates 12 guests but smaller groups who appreciate the qualities of a larger house will find the spacious accommodation equally appealing. The setting is tranquil and the perfect antidote to modern life. You're surrounded by nature, trout, and salmon in the river, all varieties of birds including dippers, kingfishers, duck geese, deer and is a real haven for red squirrels. Penrith has excellent food shops and quality supermarkets. The owner's can provide fishing at an additional charge and point you in the direction of other activities in the area. Penrith station is on the west coast main line and is accessible from London in under 3 hours.

About the local area

The Eden Valley is set in a tranquil corner of East Cumbria nestling in between The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Pennines; all areas of outstanding natural beauty and a lovely holiday destination at any time of the year.

There’s plenty to occupy visitors from cycling the quiet country lanes (Try the Eden Valley Circular Cycle Route) to taking gentle riverside strolls, or maybe its pony trekking, fishing or golf and despite its rural location there’s plenty of visitor attractions close by.

Travelling among undulating meadows visitors will come across charming villages which are dotted throughout the area and busy market towns such as Penrith, renowned for its specialist shops, history and architecture. Picturesque Appleby with its 12th century church, Norman Castle and wide medieval main street, lays to the south east of Penrith, here at Appleby station you can catch the train for a ride along the scenic Settle-Carlisle railway line.

The Eden Valley truly is Cumbria’s ‘Hidden Gem’ which maintains the illusion of untouched remoteness despite its extremely accessible location.
