Brilliant place to chill and recoup from the stresses that life throws at you. Brilliant location and so quiet. Lots of great resources around and about so plenty to do if sitting back with a good book on the patio is a bit too laid back for you.

Wow!! Explored lakes, forests, caves and coast all within a 30 minute drive. Also enjoyed a river side amble into Cockermouth center which also took around 30 mins.
