Lanercost priory

Nestled in a beautiful and tranquil setting just a stone’s throw from Farlam Hall, Lanercost Priory is a fascinating visit with a storied, often troubled history. An incredibly well-preserved 12th century monastery, it suffered frequent attacks during the long Anglo-Scottish wars, including once by Robert Bruce in person. Edward I also rested here for five months, shortly before his death on his final campaign into Scotland.


Hadrian’s wall

Farlam Hall is ideally placed to explore the Western part of Hadrian’s Wall.

Just 7 miles from the hotel lies Birdoswald, the longest remaining stretch of the Wall. Here you’ll find amazing views and walks, with the Wall stretching as far as the eye can see along stunning countryside. The site has recently undergone major renovation work, with a fascinating exhibition centre now telling the story of the Wall with hands-on fun and games for little ones.


carlisle castle

Standing proudly in the city it has dominated for nine centuries, Carlisle Castle remained a working fortress until well within living memory.

It has withstood many sieges, contained a valuable royal prisoner, and been home to the King’s Own Royal Border Regiment.


Talkin tarn

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 on the B6413 Castle Carrock road.

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.
