Dalston is 5 miles west of Carlisle and a 15 minute drive to Caldbeck and the northern fells of the Lake District. Known locally as the ‘Back o Skiddaw’, travel over the fells passing through the picturesque village of Caldbeck, with the Priests Mill cafe and the old Bobbin Mill, and into Ireby home of John Peel, the famous huntsman, and drop down into Bassenthwaite. Situated on the Cumbria Way, ideal for walkers and cyclists, Dalston is located on the banks of the River Caldew and has a wealth of local amenities with a Co-op, bakery, butchers, beauty salon, chemist, gift shop and 2 pubs both serving delicious meals and local ales.

Dalston is an ideal base to explore the northern Lakes with Keswick, Hadrian’s Wall and the Solway Coast all just over half an hours drive.
