Walking and hiking
Raring to get out into nature, breathe in some restorative country air and have an adventure? You can stride straight out into idyllic surroundings on one of the many wonderful walks that on Farlam Hall’s doorstep.
You’ll find the mixed landscape of hills, mountains and moorland offers more sedate rambles for beginners and families peppered with historic sights, breath-taking scenery and picturesque villages to mark the passing miles.
Close by, there’s the end of the Northern Pennines, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that offers quiet, unspoiled countryside for contemplative strolls.
Three miles to the north of Farlam, join the popular Hadrian’s Wall Path to enjoy a little history as you take in the awe-inspiring scenery. Check off some of the more impressive sections of the wall on the Sycamore Gap, Steel Rigg, Crag Lough circular route. Or, follow in the footsteps of the Romans and explore the historic sights of Birdoswald and Housesteads.
