whats in the area?

Hadrian's Wall - one of the most visited tourist attractions in the whole of the United Kingdom, and stretches the width of the country from the mouth of the river Solway in Carlisle to Newcastle on the North Sea. The Hadrian's Wall Path was opened in 2003 and is fast becoming one of Britain's most popular long distance paths.

Carlisle - A borough of Northwest England near the Scottish border.

Carlisle Cathedral

Perhaps the most beautiful building in Carlisle. Its origin is Norman and there are still traces of this period to be seen. Some of the arches in the south transept have been affected by subsidence as a result of a very severe draught in the 13th Century.

Carlisle Castle

Not a fairytale castle but a robust and impressive fortification that was built to respell the border skirmishes. Positioned on the Scottish border, it saw more violence than most other English castles. The oldest section is the keep, which dates back to 1150, although a recent dig has unearthed plenty of proof to show that it sits on an even older Roman site.

A quiet Countryside Park situated 1.5 miles N of M6 (J44) on right of Galashiels road at Blackford.

Ideal for overnight halt or as a base for visiting historic Carlisle, Scottish Borders or Roman Hadrian’s Wall. Lake District only a short drive away. Beside the Reivers cycle route.
