Culgaith is a small village with a church, village school, garden centre, village hall and 17th century inn. It is conveniently located within easy reach of some of the most beautiful countryside in the North West of England. The Lake District, Pennines and Yorkshire Dales offer excellent opportunities for walking, hiking and mountain biking.

If you want a tranquil hide-away to escape your busy life for a while, Pea Top Farm is also an ideal base for more leisurely pursuits like exploring the beautiful Eden Valley and its surrounding picturesque villages.
The Settle-Carlisle railway passes through Culgaith and the old station house and signal box can still be seen on the outskirts of the village. The farm gets its name from the Pea, the hill it sits on, and the railway line is carried under the Pea by a 660 yard tunnel built between 1870 and 1873.
