Description

This end-terrace property has a real traditional cottage feel, with an open-plan living space which is the hub of the home. The ancient town of Dalton-in-Furness lies in a narrow valley on the part of Furness which extends deep into Morecambe Bay. Within easy reach of the town is the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, which is very much concerned with conservation. The charming town of Ulverston is about a 10-minute drive, and is the birthplace of Stan Laurel, and home to the world’s only Laurel and Hardy Museum. There is also the Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, International Centre for Modern Buddhism and Temple for World Peace. A very popular day trip is the steam train from Haverthwaite up to Windermere on the Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Well worth a visit is Lakeland Motor Museum. Dalton railway station gives easy access to Barrow-in-Furness, or in the southerly direction, to Grange-over-Sands, Arnside and Lancaster. To the north of Dalton-in-Furness is the spectacular Duddon Estuary and Duddon Valley, with Cartmel and Grizedale Forest within easy reach. Beach 3 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

About the local area

Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel is easily accessible, with its winding streets, pretty cottages, whitewashed houses and medieval buildings leading to the village square. The village offers visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, and eateries.

Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings providing, as they have for centuries, friendly inns, well stocked shops and private dwellings. It is also home to Britain's smallest National Hunt racecourse and the National Trust attraction of Cartmel Priory Gatehouse, a historically important building situated in the heart of the village.

Occupying one of the most attractive spots in the area, Grange-over-Sands looks out across the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, a rich feeding ground for many species of birds that take advantage of the great climate in the area. It is easily accessible from the Lake District (Lake Windermere is only seven miles away) and towns such as Kendal are also just a short drive from here.

There is much to do and see on the Peninsular from golf , horse riding and fishing to hot air ballooning and parachuting! There also a good number of great walks, plus many places of historical interest.
