The Cumbria/Lake District

Surrounded by beautiful country side Midtown Cottage is an ideal base for exploring the North Lakes and the Eden valley. Set within the Lake District National Park Askham has been home to the Earls of Lonsdale for many generations.Walks from the front door are in abundance.


When part of Westmoreland Askham was regarded as one of its prettiest of villlages. It has recently been designated a conservation area. The village has two pubs both serving food, heated open air pools (August only), and a village store. Askham Hall, Lowther Castle and Gardens are a short stroll away. Lakes Haweswater and Ullswater are a short drive or a hike away. Hill walkers can take to the Roman "High Street" to get there the rest of us can just relax and enjoy.
