The Lake District

The Lake District, located in the North West of England, provides limitless activities for walkers, mountaineers, adventure seekers, wildlife enthusiasts and historians alike. Whether you stay in the comfort of a vehicle and drive one of the famous Lakeland passes, or take to the hills and mountains on foot, the Lake District, with the highest mountains in England, offers some of the most spectacular views and scenery in the British Isles.

For the water lovers the lakes offer a variety of boat trips and water sports, all with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Properties worth visiting include Holker Hall, Muncaster Castle, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter), Wordsworth House (Cockermouth) and Townend. Nearby there is Fell Foot Park for picnicks and boat hire.

Made famous by A Wainwright, the fells of Windermere, Coniston, Borrowdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Grasmere, Langdale, Wasdale, Eskdale (and more) - together with their delightful towns and villages nestled in the Lakeland valleys and woods - makes for an unlimited vista of scenic beauty.

A walk over Hampsfell offers stunning views of Morecambe Bay with a visit to the 'Hospice' before droping down to Cartmel. The hills have many outstanding examples of limestone pavement formed in the Carboniferous Period. Samples of these interesting stone formations can be seen in many local walls and gardens, including our own garden! Nearby Cartmel, the home of Sticky Toffee Pudding!, offers history dating back to 1190 with delightful shops, pubs, winebar and restaurants. Visit Cartmel Priory, and the race course - for the much enjoyed Cartmel races.

"Excellent accommodation"

Beautiful flat, very clean with all the mod cons you might need. Bathrooms were good. Very spacious and warm. Loved the wood burner in the kitchen, very cosy with a glass of mulled wine. Excellent location for visiting the South Lakes, so much to do.Close to Grange - nice short walk into town and down to the promenade. Fantastic butchers in town for meat and pies. Couple of nice restaurants in town but not many and not much variety.

Thank you for your supportive review. Cartmel is a great place for pubs and eating, as is Allithwaite, both short car journey or within walking distance. A trip on the train (one stop) to Arnside, where there are two pubs and fish & chips is well worth it. I am working on a website to inform guests more - so watch this space! Thanks, and do come again.
