The Eden Valley
Nestled between the Pennines, the Lake District and the Howgills, the Eden Valley enjoys a favourable micro-climate and rich soil. This is the agricultural heartland of Cumbria, a place of hard-working rural people who appreciate the peace and tranquility that exists in this less visited corner of England. Charming cottages cluster around village greens and the pub is often still the centre of community life. From its source high up in Mallerstang until it reaches the sea near Carlisle, the Eden is one of England’s most attractive rivers - a joy to walk alongside. If you enjoy peace and quiet and a feeling of ‘getting away from it all’, then the Eden Valley is the place for you.
