We Love Local

We lie 10 miles west on the stunning World Heritage Lake District and a short drive east from the historic market town of Penrith with immediate access to junction 40 -M6 motorway and main line railway station serving all of the major cities.

Melmerby is a great base for gentle (and not so) walks the long steep climb to Hartside forms part of the “Sea-to-Sea” cycle route.

The Helm Wind  is a local phenomenon. A very blustery strong wind that blows down from the western slope of Cross Fell, the highest peak in the pennine hills… once experienced never forgotten.

Tirril Beer
award-winning beer

In Cumbria we are lucky to have many new and established brewers. Two of our favourites and most enjoyed are the award-winning Tirrel and Allendale breweries, with beer tastes inspired by the region and local heritage.

Corney & Barrow UK’s oldest  ( Est 1780 ) independent wine merchant provides us with carefully selected honestly priced wines that deliver quality and value for money.
