South Lakeland offers a wide choice of housing and accommodation in town, village and rural locations with friendly locals welcoming new arrivals to their communities.
Housing stock ranges from traditional limestone-constructed cottages and Georgian town houses in Kendal and picture-postcard slate cottages in the Lakes villages to modern housing developments including starter and affordable homes, apartments and larger 'executive' homes, all with good access to main employment centres.
Although marginally higher than the national average and the rest of the North West, house prices in South Lakeland remain competitive and, considering the unique character and appeal of the region, compare well with other UK ‘quality’ rural locations. Property in South Lakeland is considered to be a good investment, we’re in a handful of locations in the UK where house prices have been relatively unaffected by the recession.
