Within the Lake District National Park, Wydon Farm is located just off the A66, by the village of Penruddock, almost midway between Penrith and Keswick. Cumbria CA11 0RX


Wydon is marvellously accessible for visitors (5 miles M6) and has convenient and speedy access to all parts of the North Lakes, The Eden Valley, Carlisle, Hadrian's Wall etc. Only 8 miles to to Ullswater and 11 to Keswick, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite (for the ospreys). A peaceful oasis of natural beauty and wildlife within half a mile of the popular Sportsmans Inn for a quiet drink or an enjoyable bar meal without using the A66.

A convenient location for walkers, it is fabulous for cyclists - The C2C route almost passes the door and there are almost endless permutations for rides in the wilderness known as 'Back o' Skiddaw'. These commons, grasslands, fells and mountains are well off the 'day tripper trail' and offer marvellous excursions for all levels of ability. Wydon has on-site cycle storage facilities.
