There is splendid walking from the doorstep (see "walks from your doorstep" for suggestions), and quick, easy access to the villages and fells of the Central Lakes, local limestone scars and quiet Kendal area fells. The Howgills are only thirty minutes drive away.
There are excellent hostelries nearby for bar snacks, and we are fortunate to be surrounded by award winning hotel restuarants all within a 15 minute drive. In the villages of Windermere and Bowness are a wealth of eateries to cater for all tastes.
The nearest shopping is at the local general store at Bowland Bridge (approx 5 minutes drive). Windermere and Bowness have a good range of shops (approx 10 minutes drive). Our nearest town is Kendal where you will find excellent town centre and out of town shopping including factory shops and wonderful farm shops.
