The Cumbria/Lake District
There are many sandy beaches meeting AONB standard nearby and Leighton Moss offers fantastic walks among reed beds and coastal lagoons. See bitterns, harriers an sea waders, or just settle back for a full English breakfast at the Barn Cafe. Kendal, with its bistros and shopping, is a short ride away, then carry on the extra few minutes to Bowness on Windermere. Alternately pop up to the Grizedale Forest or Newby Bridge and take a steamboat trip on Windermere, or carry on to Cartmel and see the Priory or eat at L'Enclume the famed Michelin starred restaurant, just 30 minutes away.
The many other amenities and stunning countryside of the Lake District are readily accessed from the lodge. The attractions of North Yorkshire such as Aysgarth Falls and the pretty town of Kirkby Lonsdale with its antique shops are close too.
A short trip by motorway takes you to Penrith and the North Lakes, Carlisle and points further north such as Gretna Green and the outlet village there.
Carnforth is 2 mlles away and the nearest place for provisions, with two handy supermarkets; Booths, more for luxury and often locally sourced food, and a large Tesco. There's a good carvery restaurant there too, or go no further than Waters Edge to get a family pasta night special or go the whole way with fine dining a la carte; great food served by Des and his team!
The town is best known as the location where "Brief Encounters" was filmed, and the restored train station has a really interesting visitors centre - www.carnforthstation.co.uk/brief_encounter.html
Even closer (500 yard walk) is Greenlands Village visitor centre, where there is Wellies Cafe , wine, farm produce and gift shop, a toddlers playbarn and an open farm www.greenlandsfarmvillage.com. The mega home made cakes at Catch 23 fishing lake Cafe, just a mile along the road past the South Lakes Village are well worth the visit.
