Talkin Tarn Country Park

Talkin Tarn Country Park is around 10 minutes drive from the hotel. There is a 65 acre lake set amid 120 acres of farmland and woodland.The tarn is glacial in origin, being formed about 10000 years ago, and is fed by underground streams. You can sail, windsurf, canoe or hire one of the wooden rowing boats. Fishing is available at the Tarn. There is a small camping and caravan site, and a permanent orienteering course is laid out around the park. The shop hires mountain bikes and there are suggested routes taking you through beautiful countryside. There is a 1.3 mile path round the tarn which is suitable for wheelchairs.

Situated between The Northern Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site – with the spectacular Lake District less than an hour’s drive away – there is so much to explore.
