Nenthead Mines is a really fascinating environment to explore with the landscape having been dramatically altered by the lead and zinc mining industry and not in the nasty way one might suppose! Take an underground tour of Carrs Mine, see our displays of minerals, mining equipment and historic photographs, and you can round your visit off with tea, coffee and homemade cakes.

The mine trips take around 90 minute and run nearly every house for just £5 per person.

Nenthead Mines are just a short 7 minute drive from your stay at Nent hall Country Hotel
