Haybergill is in Cumbria , near Appleby in the picturesque Upper Eden Valley , G.R. 750166. We are within the "North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" with breathtaking views all around and within touching distance of the Lake District , Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales. The Centre connects easily to the A66 and there is quick, direct access to the A1 and M6 motorways. Glasgow , Edinburgh , Newcastle , Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool are all reached in 2 hours or less by road. Appleby railway station is a few minutes drive. "Durham Tees Valley" and Newcastle are our closest airports


As you meander around the pathways you may see red squirrels, woodpeckers, buzzards, pheasants. If you stop a while on one of the benches you will hear & see the brook that runs along the bottom edge of the property and numerous small birds busily feeding & nesting. On a warm summers evening within walking distance you can quietly sit and watch a badger set and you may be lucky enough to meet one on the lane if you are out and about late at night. Deer & Grouse may also be seen at times from the grounds.



  • We have 3 acres of wooded grounds including areas suitable for small group activities.On site we have an indoor games area.
  • Within the Eden Valley there are many walks, cycle routes, places of interests, market towns & unspoilt villages with good tea shops and pubs. For bird & nature lovers we are close to a Bird of  Prey Centre, Smardale Nature Reserve, Orton Scar, Sunbiggin Tarn and the River Eden. Walks, nature rambles, cycle rides, bird watching, riding, golf & fishing are on our doorstep. Appleby and Kirkby Stephen market towns are close by. Appleby has squash courts, an indoor swimming pool and fitness centre.
  • In the Penrith & Ullswater area, water sports, indoor & outdoor climbing, golf driving range, cinema & large Saturday market are just some of the available pastimes.


  • All groups are fully catered, usually hot & cold buffet style vegetarian food. All meals are freshly prepared using mainly local produce. Our meals have been highly praised - so we've even produced our own vegetarian cookbook!
  • Haybergill lends itself to groups looking for a smaller alternative conference/ meeting place, residential courses, short breaks and holidays. There is enough space for 12-24 people to sleep, eat and work together in a very special setting where the "eco" friendly building blends into the natural beauty of the surroundings & one gets a sense of timelessness.
