Ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, Eden Valley and the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth, Armathwaite is an attractive, unspoiled rural village. This charming settlement has two old pubs - both with popular restaurants - a post office and a traditional village shop. The River Eden runs through the centre of the village itself whilst the surrounding area is renowned for its excellent salmon fishing, walking, canoeing and climbing. The impressive Armathwaite Castle is a four-storey Pele Tower, and the 15th Century Church provides fine examples of stained glass windows. The Eden Gorge, situated between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is amongst Cumbria's best-kept secrets making it a quiet day out away from the tourists. Penrith hosts the Rheged Discovery Centre which gives visitors a chance to see the largest grass covered building in the country whilst Dalemain Historic House - featured in a television production of Jane Eyre â€“ is also within easy driving distance.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
