The small hamlet of New Hutton, set in lovely countryside, makes a quiet and convenient base for getting to know both the southern Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. There is plenty to see and do in this popular holiday area, with both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, with its impressive topiary gardens nearby, as well as the town of Kendal, with its castle, art gallery and shops and restaurants set off cobbled streets. The walking in this area is superb, including limestone escarpments offering gentle walks and thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.
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.
