Lazonby is a village in the Lower Eden Valley and is about 8 miles north east of Penrith.
The village is mainly a farming community but in recent years various new housing developments have increased it’s size.
The village boasts a very impressive railway viaduct and the “Lazonby and Kirkoswald” railway station which serves the village and was once a thriving station. Much fewer trains now run and recently the goods shed and main station building has been taken over by the thriving village bakery “Bells of Lazonby”.
The village is quite large by local standards and boasts 2 pubs, a primary school, a fire station, post office, auction mart, a church and a swimming pool. There are several B&B’s, guest houses and a campsite within and local to the village.
