The Spring Gentian, is so rare that it is found only in Upper Teesdale on mainland Britain. Even the less rare plants put on a stunning show, as a field ablaze with Globe flowers, or a hay meadow in full bloom can prove.
Many cyclists find the challenging terrain of Upper Teesdale ideal. With less traffic the open roads are perfect for getting away from the pressures of town. Why not make Langdon Beck Hotel your stopover? A warming bowl of soup, or just the chance to catch your breath!
Teesdale is a true dark sky area with Dark Sky Discovery Site recognition. Indeed of the 71 recognised sites no less than six of them are in Teesdale with Cow Green reservoir, just three miles away, being added recently.
