The village of Melmerby is set within the heart of the Eden Valley at the foot of the majestic Pennine fells and the famous Hartside pass which climbs to 1904 ft above sea level. An awe inspiring viewpoint on a clear day to take in the entire Eden Valley, the Lake District and, on occasion, southern Scotland! Melmerby also offers a host of facilities to our guests, including a well-stocked village shop & tea room, a super antique shop (The Brocante Emporium), and a wonderful traditional Cumbrian pub “The Shepherds Inn”. The well-known ‘Coast to Coast’ Cycle route also passes directly through the village on the A686 and ascends via Hartside to Alston, England’s highest market town.
