The Local Hadrian's Wall Area

 

The surrounding area around Bush Nook is rich in history and natural unspoilt beauty. There are lots of opportunities to take in the history of the sometimes rugged, sometimes tranquil, yet constantly changing scenery.

Hadrian's Wall Country

This is a great area for exploring the most Northern borders of the mighty Roman Empire along the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage site. You can now walk the entire route of the Wall along the new Hadrian's Wall Heritage Trail.

It's also a great area for cycling and mountain biking. There are loads of cycle routes for varying abilities, many of which take in the more interesting parts of the Roman Wall along the way - see Hadrian's Wall Country for more information. There's also the Hadrian's Wall Cycleway - cycle the full length of the wall.

Pennine Way

If you are walking the Pennine Way or wish to walk the northern sections we are well placed to support your stay on route, see www.nationaltrail.co.uk/PennineWay, Bush Nook is located on the edge of the Northern slopes of the Pennines and there are spectacular panoramic views further up the hill where you can see over to the Solway Firth. You can almost reach out to touch the Scottish Borders.

Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is also just a few minutes drive away with superb fishing and quiet, easy walks by the river.

Historic Carlisle

The historic border city of Carlisle with its Castle, Cathedral and Tullie House Museum, as well as its excellent shopping and restaurants, is also well worth a visit.

Watersports at Talkin Tarn

Or perhaps watersports such as dinghy sailing, canoeing, rowing and windsurfing are your thing? If so, these are all available locally at Talkin Tarn Country Park. Fishing is also allowed at the tarn.

Whatever your taste, there is sure to be something of interest nearby.

Malcolm & Jenny will be delighted to help you plan a touring itinerary to help you make the most of your stay.

They can also provide scrumptious pack lunches or picnic hampers to add to a day's enjoyment!

Guest Reviews:

“Excellent Base for Hadrian's Wall”

"Absolutely lovely B&B run by the most relaxed, helpful, wonderful people. Stayed there for 2 nights July 13-14 as a base from which to explore the middle section of Hadrian's wall. Breakfasts were delicious and made to order. Hot tub was fantastic. Setting was pastoral, beds were comfortable, bathrooms big, water hot, quiet. Idyllic place. Really wonderful. Highly recommend."
