Well appointed with a lovely garden to sit out, stroll round or run around in, and close to the town centre for shopping, eating or somewhere to mooch round in the rain. We found everything we needed and the extra provisions provided (tea coffee dishwasher tablets) were a godsend for a short stay. Also it's very good for routes to the rest of the Lakes, close to frequent bus connections and also to Brockhole activity centre.

The house is spacious, clean and well equipped with all you could want in a base to explore. The village is quiet, but has two good pubs serving food and real ale. Locally Warton Crag is well worth the climb and a short drive away lie Silverdale (sit on the beach as the tide comes in - fantastic), Arnside and Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. The central location between Dales and Lakes makes this the perfect holiday base. We visited both national parks and went as far as Teesdale in the North Pennines AONB. I really would recommend it and we would love to return.
