The Greenhill Hotel is located in a superb position just off the A595 Carlisle to Cockermouth road in North Cumbria, just 11 miles south west of the historic Border City of Carlisle, and close to the edge of the Lake District National Park. It is an excellent base for exploring the local area with many historic attractions and some fantastic walking / cycling to be had nearby.
We are also only 15 minutes drive from the picturesque village of Caldbeck in the lessor known and quieter Northern Fells of the Lake District. If outdoor action is what you're looking for the bustling town of Keswick is only 30 minutes drive away nestled between stunning lakes and mountains. Challenging fell walks and water sports abound.
To the north east, the historic city of Carlisle with its Castle, Cathedral and Tullie House Museum (Border Reivers), as well as its excellent shopping and restaurants, is also well worth a visit.
We're not far from the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), famous for its stunning sunsets, abundant bird life, beautiful coastline walks and numerous golf courses. To the south are the historic ports of Maryport and Whitehaven.
The famous Roman Wall - Hadrian's Wall - marking the Northern border of the former Roman Empire, is only a few miles away to the North and the local area is full of history and unspoiled scenery. This is Reivers Country after all.
Several major walking routes such as the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail pass through this area, as well as cycle routes such as the Coast to Coast (C2C), Reivers Route (Tynemouth to Whitehaven) and the Hadrian's Wall Cycle Way (South Shields to Ravenglass).
Or perhaps water sports such as dinghy sailing, canoeing and windsurfing are your thing? If so, these are all available locally at Bassenthwaite Lake Sailing Club.
Why not take in a day at the races? - Carlisle Race Course is only a short drive away from us. Getting married? Why not have your wedding reception at the Greenhill Hotel?
Whether it is walking, cycling, horse riding, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing or mountain biking, there is always something for everyone in this beautiful part of Cumbria.
