Lake District Location
We believe we occupy a prime spot in the Southern Lake District, ideal for doing absolutely nothing or spending your days exploring this fabulous corner of England.
We are close enough to the ever popular destinations of Bowness and Windermere, and thriving Hawkshead is only a short drive away. Our real advantage lies in our peaceful setting right on the banks of the River Leven, where our site was once home to several major industries, hard to think it now as the water flows by.
All our visitors whether long standing or new owners, or first time holiday makers, all have a multitude of choices as to how they spend their time here.
Being only 30 minutes drive from the M6 – J36 it wont take you long to forgot what type of journey you may have had here ! For anyone considering arriving by train we are only 15 minutes from Ulverston Station, which has direct trains from Manchester (75 minutes), Manchester Airport (2 1/4 hours,with one change at Lancaster). London Euston trains stop at Oxenholme Station, near Kendal, as do trains from Edinburgh, taxi to here will cost approx £40.
Once you are here, regardless of how you arrived, there are plenty of public transport opportunities to get you around. We can also arrange bicycle and electric bike hire, car hire or an abundance of local walks to completely escape it all.
The only decision you have to make right now is – when do you want to visit us ?
