Living in Cumbria

As one of the most attractive counties anywhere in the UK, you and your family can look forward to a life filled with outdoor adventure when you buy a new home in Cumbria.

Things to see and do in Cumbria

The Lake District is undoubtedly the biggest draw in Cumbria. Attracting more than 15 million visitors every year, the vast national park is the most popular in the UK. It features a spectacular array of soaring peaks, picturesque lakes and inviting beaches, with the potential to spend countless hours exploring all different parts of it.  A good part of the North Pennines stretch into Cumbria too, while Kielder Forest Park spills over the county’s north east border. Whether you’re spending time on the Solway Coast, going for long walks through the South Solway Mosses or delving into ancient history along Hadrian’s Wall, you can also explore an array of historic castles and cultural draws such as art galleries and museums.   


A number of Cumbrian primary schools have been highlighted among the country’s best in recent years. This includes Bookwell Primary School in Egremont and Barrow’s Yarlside Academy, while Stanwix and Houghton Schools in Carlisle, St Mary's RC Primary in Ulverston and Cockermouth’s Fairfield Primary have also been recognised among the county’s leading lights. 

There’s also been national recognition at secondary level, with Cockermouth, Dallam and Keswick Schools all named among the country’s best options for children aged 11 and up. Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Penrith is regarded as one of Cumbria’s very best schools, while Windermere School, Sedbergh School and Lime House School near Dalston are also highly rated. 

Transport links in Cumbria

The county council has been increasingly promoting active travel initiatives in recent years, leading to more sustainable means of getting around. The M6 motorway is the county’s main artery when it comes to driving, running north to south from Carlisle down to Lancaster and Preston in Lancashire. Public transport links include bus, rail and ferry services, while there are also community transport schemes in operation around the county.
