Just three miles north of the hotel are the remains of Hadrian’s Wall which was the most northerly border of the Roman Empire. Enjoy the perfect mix of stunning scenery, wild open country, history and world-class museums. Hadrian’s wall stretches from the west coast near the Solway Coast over to Newcastle in the east and is a popular route for walkers and cyclists of all ages. Farlam Hall is perfectly placed in the centre of Hadrian’s wall as start position or a luxury rest spot for the weary!
Bring your clubs with you when you visit Farlam Hall – the beautiful, wide-open spaces of Cumbria mean there are a number of fantastic golf courses spread throughout the region. The links course at Silloth on Solway is regarded as one of the best in the country, this hidden gem is set in stunning surrounds on the Solway Coast, with striking sand dunes and the waters of the firth bordering the challenging course. There are also championship courses at Slayley Hall and Matfen Hall – and three completely different, great courses within 7 miles of the hotel. Close by is Brampton which is hilly but beautiful, then there are the Carlisle and Eden courses which are both worth seeking out for golf enthusiasts.
Just down the road from the hotel is the beautiful Talkin Tarn Country Park. The tarn lies nine miles east of Carlisle and two miles south of Brampton. There is a 65-acre lake set amid 120 acres of farmland and woodland. The tarn is an ideal place for active recreation or a quiet stroll through the mature woodlands.
Less than an hour away by car, the spectacular Lake District World Heritage Site is easily accessible. It is the perfect day out for those wishing to explore some of the country’s most incredible scenic countryside.
