Church View Cottage is a semi-detached property situated in the village of Shap, known locally as the ‘Gateway to the Fells and Lakes’ being on the eastern edge of the Lake District National Park and close to the second largest lake in the Lake District - Ullswater. The village offers a wide range of amenities including a good selection of pubs, shops, an outdoor heated swimming pool, lockable cycle store, a children’s play area and tennis courts. The Eden Valley provides superb walking and cycling, and the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales are easy to visit too. The atmospheric, rugged area of Haweswater, eight miles, has a viewpoint for golden eagles. Pretty villages and bustling market towns abound, with a lively calendar of farmer’s markets and county shows. There’s plenty of local produce to purchase or enjoy in the many restaurants and pubs serving regional favourites. There’s excellent road access to the historic border city of Carlisle with its castle and museum, and Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site, has interesting exhibitions to visit. The Northumberland National Park and southern Scotland are both within an hour’s drive.
