Lazonby Bridge

St Oswald's Church bell towerThe Eden Valley has not only wonderful scenery, but also many small, delightful villages and hamlets.

Nearby to Howscales Cottages the sandstone villages of Kirkoswald, Glassonby, Gamblesby and Melmerby are delightful to walk to and in Kirkoswald the village pub is very dog friendly so if you are out walking with your four-legged friend you have somewhere to stop for refreshments.

Lush green countryside surrounds you and flowing through the Eden Valley is the magnificent River Eden where you can enjoy some great riverside walks. Close to Kirkoswald can be found Laceys Caves, carved out of sandstone and found right on the riverbank. Please note that following the floods in 2015 a section of the footpath to Laceys Caves was washed away and is yet to be repaired.

We love where we live and were holidaymakers to the Eden Valley and Lake District too, for many years before settling here at Howscales. We can give you tips and advice on all the best places to go and things to not miss out on.
