Life In South Lakeland,
The South Lakes hardly need any introduction - famous the world over for its scenery of beautiful lakes and mountains and picturesque towns and villages that have engaged and enthralled people for centuries. Situated in Cumbria in the North West of England, South Lakeland encompasses major parts of the stunning Lake District (now an official World Heritage Site!) and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
One of the most desirable places to live in the UK, it has long been the lifestyle choice for many professionals looking to escape large urban conurbations but who still seek (and find) their own piece of rural idyll without having to compromise on quality of life, connectivity, transport links or business vibrancy.
Adrenaline, Activities and Quiet Relaxation
Whether you want to take part in energetic outdoor activities or take time out for quiet contemplation, spectacular South Lakeland provides the perfect escape from the office or workplace. Where else can you scale some of England's highest peaks or sail on its longest lake and enjoy world class art - all in the same day? There’s events and festivals all year round too, as well as cinemas, michelin-starred restaurants, cosy pubs and relaxing spas… you could say that residents here enjoy one long holiday!
Perfect for Family Life
South Lakeland is well served by high-quality schools, colleges and universities, making it the perfect choice for family life. Kendal and Furness College are highly regarded, working closely with local employers to provide specialist vocational programmes. Lancaster University is easily accessible and is rated as one of the top universities in the world, while the University of Cumbria is a specialist in teacher education.
