The Eden Valley is blessed with some of England’s most beautiful scenery, thrilling outdoor activities and a rich and fascinating history. It also boasts some of the best food and local produce to be found anywhere in the world.

There’s something for everybody, whether outdoor aficionados, lovers of literature and poetry, artists, history and archaeology enthusiasts, children and those young at heart, epicureans, couples on a romantic break or, simply, those who want to chill out and take it easy for a while.

We couldn’t hope to give you a full list of the activities on offer and places to visit, so these pages are just a taster, something for you to dip into before you dive in!
