Outdoor Activities

The Upper Eden is wonderful place to participate in a range of  many outdoor pursuits and is rarely crowded.   Alternatively, use our area as a base to visit some of the fantastic activities on offer in nearby areas particularly in the national parks and even follow the best of the weather.                                                                                                                                    North Pennines                                                                                                                                 Lake District                                                                                                                              Yorkshire Dales

The light quality during the day is perfect for painting.  At night the lack of light pollution is perfect for watching the stars.  Around Tan Hill you can even see the Northern Lights when they are active.

There are a number of pot holes in the area to explore but we would recommend only suitable for the experienced who will also have access to local information through clubs.

The Visitor Centre are always happy to advise
