From Moorland to Sea
Less well known is that the landscape around Carlisle is very diverse and ranges from dramtic moorland on the edge of the pennines, through rolling woodlands and lush farms to the Solway Coast, itself an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The marshlands starting just beyond the city at Rockcliffe is one of the largest saltmarsh nature reserves in the uk and home to many summer breeding and over wintering birds.
The whole area is a joy to explore with well marked trails ,footpaths, fantastic village pubs and hotels serving some top class food. In this unique landscape you can escape the crowds and have room to breathe while you discover the hidden gems of our area..
