This very small market town, serving the livestock farmers of the upper Eden Valley (England`s own Garden of Eden) is not quite the halfway point of the Coast-to Coast tour, but it is a good place to pause and perhaps take a day`s rest before tackling the Yorkshire Dales. There is a choice of eating places including a Chinese take-away and two pubs serving meals, a supermarket, pharmacy and a few other shops as well as a wide choice of accommodation of various degrees of comfort, including a youth hostel. (For more specialised shopping requirements you will need to wait for 3 more days until you reach the larger town of Richmond). The town`s train station is a mile and a half away up a steep hill, with several trains daily in each direction could be useful if you are returning to St Bees from this point. There is a a small platform shop at Kirkby Stephen railway station, which provides light refreshments, homemade soup and rolls etc. Alternatively you could use the train service from Leeds to start the second half of the Coast-to-Coast tour at Kirkby Stephen. Eden Spa and Fitness Suite, newly opened - Coast to Coast walkers can come and relax in the Spa. We offer a 7 seater jacuzzi, a 5 seater steam room and a 7 seater sauna.
