Cumbria is Open !

New pooley bridgeFollowing the devastating floods of December 2015 which badly affected some parts of Cumbria (although thankfully not Penrith), two of the bridges on major roads close to Penrith have reopened this week, in time for Easter. A temporary bridge has been installed at Pooley Bridge at the north end of Ullswater - this is for traffic and pedestrians. Eamont Bridge on the main A6 road between Penrith, Shap and kendal has also reopened following major repairs. All temporary diversions have been lifted and travel is once again possible along the usual routes. Business are open and ready to welcome you.

Whats On in Eden

Whats on around Ullswater

Fancy something new and a little different ?

 The Ullswater Daff Fest is taking place in and around the Ullswater Valley (28 March to 17 April) with a series of events that enable everyone, both young and old, to delight in daffodils just as our local literary greats once did. Walk in the footsteps of Wordsworth, try a Botanical art course, take a ‘teddies go free’ lake cruise, dine at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party or go for a journey on an Ullswater Daffodil Canoe Trail.  Businesses both big and small have flocked to show their support for the initiative - from Ullswater Steamers, the National Trust, Lowther Castle and the Lake District National Park to Quirky Workshops at the Greystoke Cycle café and community bulb planting in Glenridding, there are plenty of reasons to visit England’s most beautiful lake over the next few weeks.
