Nearby attractions and things to do

As well as walking and the Romans, there are many more interesting things to do and see in the area.

Carlisle City Council have produced 5 videos highlighting some of the natural and cultural riches to be found in the area.

For culture, shopping and amenities are the market towns of Brampton and Haltwhistle. Slightly further afield are Hexham and Corbridge, and then the vibrant cities of Carlisle and Newcastle.

We are also well located for exploring the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks, while the Scottish Borders and Northumberland Coast are only a scenic drive away.

Wildlife enthusiasts can visit WWT Caerlaverock or RSPB Geltsdale. Or, if you want a guided tour of some of the great wildlife to see in the area, including Black Grouse, Peregrine, Goshawk, Osprey, Roseate Tern, Grey Seal, Otter, Red Squirrel, Wild Goat, Roe Deer, Minke Whale and White-beaked Dolphin, we can highly recommend Northern Experience Wildlife Tours.
