Rag Rug Courses Cumbria - About The Local Area

  My rag rug making centre is in close proximity to many of the ancient market towns and the natural beauty of the Eden Valley and the Lake District. Please click here to find its location.

Cockermouth, Penrith and Carlisle are well worth a visit not only for great shopping, but also for their historic interest.

Rheged Visitor Centre near M6 Junction 40, Ullswater, and Caldbeck (of John Peel fame) are within a 20 minute drive of the Turning School and in less than 45 minutes the Solway Coast (a peaceful area of outstanding natural beauty) and Hadrian's Wall
 (a world heritage site) can be reached, catering for those who may want to combine a rag rug making course with a short break.
