Close to Lake District & Yorkshire Dales, Great Britain.

Our house is on the edge of the village of Milnthorpe and is close to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. The house is situated on a hill and has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.  There is a footpath nearby which leads to Dallam Park, which has its own deer herd and has lovely views over the Kent estuary to the lakeland mountains. 
 
The house has a sun terrace and a large enclosed garden. There are three bedrooms in the house, one with a double bed, a large bedroom with two single beds  and a single bedded room.  There is a dining room with a  new patio door to the terrace, a kitchen and a large lounge with a bed settee.
 
The village of Milnthorpe has shops, post office, bakery, doctor, dentist and an outdoor market on Fridays.  There are plenty of pubs & restaurants in the area.

We have a Canadian canoe and all the gear for you to use if you wish.
 
The surrounding areas of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales are great for hill walking and scenic drives. There are also many tourist attractions in the area.Lake Windermere (20km) is very good for water sports and boat cruises. Please have a look at www.lakedistrict.gov.uk.  Alternatively there are lots of beautiful local walks along the shores of Morecambe Bay. We are also close to Kendal (10Km) and Lancaster (20km) which are both good for cultural diversions & shopping. Below are some local views of the Milnthorpe area and a few of south & west Cumbria. We have 4 grown up children and a dog, none of which come on exchanges with us abroad. We are also interested in short breaks in the UK for which we usually like to bring the dog.
