This area of Cumbria has many lovely villages and Dearham is no exception, offering a picturesque location close to the Lake District and Solway Coast. Cumbria is famed for its beautiful lakes and scenery and has a strong reputation for being an unspoilt region.

St Mungo’s Close is named after The Church of St Mungo in Dearham which was probably built in the early 12th Century, on a site where Christian worship has taken place since before the Norman conquest. It has a 13th Century chancel, and a fortress tower (Pele Tower) built for the protection of men and animals during the Border raids.

Dearham has a strong historical past, belonging to Cumberland’s former coal mining industry.

The towns of Cockermouth and Workington are both within five miles of Dearham and offer a diverse blend of shops ranging from high street brands and department stores to small boutiques and specialist shops. The West coast and Nearby Lake District National Park offer a spectacular landscape with walks, bridle paths and hidden treasures, perfect for gentle weekend rambles and fabulous days of exploring for the whole family.
