Welcome to our village

The ancient village of Bolton lies on a hill above the River Eden in the picturesque Eden Valley in Cumbria. The small, friendly village is four miles west of the historic market town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, and 11 miles east of the larger, equally historic market town of Penrith. It is minutes off the A66, and 15 minutes away from the M6 and a mainline station. The Lake District National Park, the Westmorland Dales and the North Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach. The magnificent views from the village and the strong community spirit contribute to its ever-growing popularity. Unlike many Cumbrian villages, the percentage of second and holiday homes is very low, and community life is year-long. It centres on the Memorial Hall, the pub (the New Crown Inn), the church and chapel, the primary school and a popular nursery. A fantastic new play park was officially opened in April 2019.

Information booklet

This booklet is designed for people new to Bolton and provides information about our community activities, organisations, clubs and groups, along with information and contact details of various organisations, services, businesses and authorities.
