The small Lancastrian town of Carnforth is based just south of Cumbria near the coast of Morecambe Bay. It is on the main train line between Barrow-in-Furness and Manchester, so it is a direct route and one of the must-stop places on the way to the Lake District. There is a distinctly quaint northern atmosphere about the place, which means that it is as equally as inviting as any other town or village in this wonderful part of the world. The town has a claim to Hollywood fame with its now immortalised rail station: fans of Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard will be pleased to know that their 1945 movie Brief Encounter was filmed there. Since Carnforth was an incredibly busy rail station during that era, the scenes had to be shot throughout the night to ensure minimal disruption to the train services. The town recently renovated the refreshment room at the station to match the movie set they used throughout the film - an attraction that draws nostalgic visitors all year round. Carnforth's curved station marks the beginning of a train route that is amongst the most scenic in Britain, which takes passengers around the Bay through pleasant villages like Arnside and Silverdale. Our cottages in Carnforth give you the perfect resting place for a long stay in the north. The town is only twenty minutes from Kendal on the edges of the Lake District - which is, incidentally, the home of Kendal Mint Cake - and lies not far west of the Yorkshire Dales.
