Morland and the Eden Valley
Morland is a small, rural village of around 300 people, surrounded by rolling farmland and with superb views across to the Pennines. It is 8 miles south-east of Penrith, and its central location in the county makes it an excellent touring base for the Lake District, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian's Wall and the Solway Firth. Ullswater, the nearest lake, is 20 minutes away. The Eden Valley itself is a paradise for cyclists and walkers.
Morland is less than 15 minutes drive from the M6 (Shap Junction 39 or Penrith, Junction 40). It's also about 10 minutes from the A66 coming from the east.
The village and surrounding area is well served by the Mill Yard Cafe, open Wednesday to Sunday for breakfast, brunch, lunches and drinks, and also on Friday and Saturday evenings for takeaway pizza.
The village is also home to Morland House, a large Tudor manor house that can be hired as self-catering accommodation for 19 guests in 9 bedrooms. The house is Ideal for family gatherings, birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. It has a very fine garden that is open to guests of Greengill Holidays.
