Life In the Lake District,
in South Lakeland, Cumbria
It is a place that needs no introduction – famous the world over for its scenery of beautiful lakes and mountains, and picturesque towns and villages that have attracted people for centuries. The best thing is you can wake up to this every day. It could be the perfect home for you, so stop dreaming and join us.
South Lakeland encompasses 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 the city but who still seek their own piece of rural idyll without having to compromise on quality of life, connectivity, transport links and business vibrancy.

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 we enjoy one long holiday!
