Take a couple of rest days from the Pennine Way at Sunrise Cottage, 1500' up in the north Pennines AONB above Nenthead. Not for people who need civilisation on the doorstep! But if you like wildlife, history from Romans to castles, abbeys and an old gaol through to mining heritage and a steam railway; if you want to visit old cobbled villages and dog-friendly pubs, walk all day without seeing a soul and come back to relax in the sauna or in front of the fire with a good book or film; if you want to sit in the garden and marvel at all the stars in the dark skies or take an evening stroll to a dog-friendly pub, then Sunrise Cottage could be perfect for you.
