Cumbrian Pennines

The River Eden runs through a lovely stretch of quiet and roften remote countryside flanked on one side by the highe moorlands of the Pennine spine and on the other by distant views of the more popular Lake District. It all makes for an excellent area to walk in whether on short riverside strolls or higher moorland walking and there are some real undiscovered gems; High Cup Nick, Mallerstang and Ashgill Force to name but 3. Some people will never bring themselves to leave the Lake District but it is those that do that are most rewarded
