The Cumbria/Lake District
An area of outstanding natural beauty. Lakes, mountains, pretty villages and welcoming pubs. Do as much or as little as you want and get away from the pressures of modern life.
“Cumbria contains some of England’s most intensely beautiful and varied countryside. The Lake District mixes soft green dales, cobbled towns, stark mountains and mirror surfaced lakes. An incredible variety of breathtaking scenery is crammed into a small area. The rugged Cumbrian Mountains are dramatic and challenging and offer countless walks amid uplifting scenery.” - Lonely Planet Guide to Britain
Grange -over -Sands is located a 5 minutes drive from the cottage. This is a pretty Edwardian seaside town. It has a wide variety of independent shops with its own butchers (highly recommended - Higginsons), bakers, greengrocers, cafes and restaurants.

Also close by are Grizedale Forest (with an excellent "Go Ape" ropes course), Holker Hall (house, gardens and a flower festival in May), Cartmel (with the famous horse racing each May bank holiday and the historic priory) and the Lakeside Stream railway which connects to the Windermere Cruises.
