This friendly little part of Britain set amongst the stunning scenery of Cumbra has been shaped and developed by Victorian infrastructure with its history tracing back to Roman times.
Victorian families loved coming to this seaside resort due to its clean , sandy beaches and easy rail. Today it is just as popular with the addition of a golf course and a few other modern amenities such as a sports hall. There are a few extra thrilling activities such as water skiing, wind surfing and for something more relaxing, fishing.
There are many reminders of its Victorian past such as the Water Tower and the quaint buildings dotted around the town.
For the nearest shops and high street shops, a drive to Egremont is only twenty minutes by car and Whitehaven by the coast is thirty.
