With a post office and general store, a butcher and a pub that serves good food, the village has all the essentials for visitors. For more specific amenities, Kirkby Lonsdale is just seven miles away whilst Kendal is only 12 miles and is often referred to as the gateway to the Lake District. The historic city of Lancaster and the seaside resorts of Morecombe and Blackpool are within easy driving distance, whilst the acclaimed RSPB wildfowl reserve of Leighton Moss is only four miles away. Morecombe Bay also offers great opportunities for wildlife spotting and is one of the reasons that the area is famous for birdwatching.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
