Follow the course of the River Eden from Kirkoswald to Armathwaite, with three sensational properties to view, all guided by the owners. Firstly, The College, in the Fetherstonehaugh family since 1590. Secondly, The Nunnery with the earliest reference dating to 1200, present house rebuilt in 1715. And last but not least, Low House, a pretty five-bay house colourwashed pink, standing on an enviable plat above the river. Pevsner describes all three in ‘The Buildings of England, Cumbria’.

£65 including morning coffee with home-made biscuits, a two-course lunch, and afternoon tea with cream scones
