Location description from owner

The England region

A predominantly rural county, Cumbria is considered one of the most beautiful regions of the UK and includes the whole of the Lake District, also known as The Lakes or Lakeland, the Eden Valley, the North Pennines, the Furness Peninsula, and part of the Yorkshire Dales.

You can walk, cycle and splash about here to your heart's content!

With 12 of the largest lakes in England and 3,105 kilometres of rights of way, this is truly one of Britain's breathing spaces.

Windermere, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in England, and is fed by numerous rivers. The Romans built their fort of GALAVA at its northern end (Waterhead), and it has always been an important waterway for movement of heavy materials.

Bowness-on-Windermere – Lakeland's most popular holiday resort – is an excellent centre for boating activities, with over 10,000 boats registered. Until March 2005 Windermere was the only lake without a speed limit, but a 10 mph limit has now been imposed.

The village of Windermere grew around the Windermere railway station, about a mile and a half from the lake. The village was originally called Birthwaite, but the railway company decided to call the station after the lake.

Steamers and launches operate from Bowness Bay to Waterhead at Ambleside, and Lakeside at the southern end.

Mawbray

Mawbray means 'maiden's castle or stronghold' and refers to the existence of an old Roman fort. Indeed, the Roman fort of Bibra, between Mawbray and Beckfoot, was excavated in 1879.

Mawbray Banks is part of the Solway Coast between Mawbray Yard and Beckfoot. The Romans used the bank as a cemetery, where military personnel were cremated on pyres and their ashes buried in pots. In the 17th century, the Quakers held secret religious meetings, 'the meeting place upon Mawbray Banke'. Sand and gravel for use in the building industry use to be taken from the banks until fairly recently. Today the Banks are protected, being designated an area of outstanding beauty.

According to the local historian, Francis Grainger, Mawbray has been in existence since 1150. It is a village of some 40 houses right on the Solway coast. In former times the inhabitants were mostly farmers and a few fishermen.

On a fine day, standing on a high point of Mawbray Banks, looking southeast towards Skiddaw and northwest towards Criffel, one can take in the magnificent, unspoilt views across the Solway Plain to the Lakeland Hills and across the Solway Estuary to Scotland.

Mawbray is about 2 miles north of Allonby, and about 5 miles south of Silloth. About 1.5 miles east is the tiny hamlet of Holme St Cuthbert, with the rather grand St Cuthbert's Church.

On the coast road is Bank Mill Nurseries. As well as extensive nursery offerings, there is a small gift area, a coffee shop serving a variety of meals and snacks using local produce, a butterfly house, a reptile house, a nature reserve with ponds and picnic tables, flower meadows, and some Jacob sheep.
