A lovely market town, with a resident population of around 5000, situated in the heart of the Cumbria Lake District.

Surrounded by some of the most spectacular landscape in the British Isles it offers the outdoor enthusiast a myriad of activities, including: climbing, hill walking, cycling, mountain biking, fell running, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, and the list goes on...
