Shap AbbeyThe Eden Valley has not only wonderful scenery, but also many small, delightful villages and hamlets.

 Here you will find buildings and places of historic interest, stately homes such as Dalemain or Hutton-in-the-Forest and delightful gardens such as Acorn Bank. The Settle-Carlisle railway passes through the area and to the North is Hadrian's Wall and the border country.

There are country inns serving real ales, tea rooms, village bakeries, individual shops, antique centres, art galleries and garden centres. There are many opportunities for golf, horse riding and fishing, photography or painting.

All this and delightful scenery to explore by foot, bicycle or car.

During the year there are several festivals, country and craft fairs, farmers' markets, and traditional agricultural shows.

Stray a little way out of the Valley and you can be in the beautiful  Eastern Lake District, the delighfulYorkshire Dales or the rugged North Pennines.
