THE AREA, ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES.

As modern life becomes increasingly hectic and crowded the space and freedom that North Cumbria offers is even more precious.

Situated between The Northern Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site this is the perfect location for a holiday.

Most outdoor pursuits are well catered for and when you tire of activity there is an excellent range of country houses and museums in the area. Also a wide variety of shopping from antiques to cashmere.

Walking
The walking in this area just keeps getting better. Before the Foot and Mouth disaster access to the land was a little unsure and without crowds of people to keep the paths open some were disappearing. Since that awful time every one is much more aware of the need for safe and easy access.

Hadrian's Wall

Farlam is ideally placed to explore the Western part of the wall.
Hadrian's Wall Path lies just 3 miles to the North of the hotel. This is an amazing walk and we are usually able to help with transfers in our area. Birdoswald is only 7 miles away and most of the major sites are between Farlam and Housteads which is 20 miles to the East.

Carlisle Castle

Other wonderful walking is to be found in The Northern Pennines which is on our doorstep, The Eden Valley and around The Gelt River.

Cycling
Our quiet roads allow you to enjoy cycling again. There is an excellent local hire centre in Brampton if you do not wish to bring your own. We are close to the sus Trans Routes and a whole network of routes around Haltwhistle.
The new Hadrian's Wall Cycle path is a fantastic way of exploring the wall. If you fancy mountain biking then Newcastleton to the North of us has a centre with adventure for all.

Golf
We have 3 great local courses. Close by is Brampton which is hilly but beautiful. Click here or the picture to visit the site. Then there are Carlisle and Eden Courses about 7 miles away. If you fancy combining a day out with golf then the championship courses at Slayley Hall and Matfen Hall or the links course at Silloth are perfect combinations.

Go to 'Brampton Golf Club' website.

Flying
At Carlisle Airport there are two flying schools offering pleasure flights and lessons on both fixed wing and helicopters. It is a truly amazing way of seeing the area at all times of the year.
Alternatively if you need help with your licence then Carlisle is ideal as there is no commercial traffic to wait for saving time and money.

Fishing.
Within 2 miles of the hotel are 2 trout fisheries which offer some really good and relaxing fishing. These are the New Mills Trout Farm and the Naworth Fisheries

For river fishing the Brampton Angling Association sell day or week permits at the local post office. This is for fishing on the rivers Irthing, Gelt and King Water. All of their waters are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest and are in beautiful locations.

Bird Watching

There are several R.S.P.B. reserves close to the hotel. The newest one is about one mile away and their information centre is now open. They have also improved the access to the fells around Hallbankgate with parking and a map showing the trail.
Also close by is The Geltsdale Reserve which is mainly woodland around The River Gelt.
The two reserves are so different they make for contrasting days out.

Relaxation
We do not have a spa or beauty centre but with advance booking a local beauty therapist will come to the hotel. Alternatively there is a very highly regarded beauty and massage salon in Brampton.

If none of this appeals we would suggest you curl up at Farlam and ignore the outside world.
