Pre-historic Stone Circles

There are some 50 stone circles in Cumbria, including some of the earliest stone circles in Britain. There is a wide range of types, from the vast monumental circles at Castlerigg, Swinside and Long Meg, to the standard early bronze age circles of about 100 ft in diameter as at Casterton and Elva Plain, to diminutive rings associated with alignments and burials. Some are associated with henge monuments such as Mayburgh.

More information on all these monuments can be found at Visit Cumbria - Stone Circles

We have a particular interest in Castlerigg and Mayburgh Henge as we have named our guest rooms after them. However, if you like these sort of
attractions, then we would also recommend a visit to Long Meg and her daughters just a few miles from Penrith - Long Meg & Her Daughters
