I have a cosy double room in my first floor apartment over looking a communal garden/court yard. It is quiet with a particularly comfortable bed. I am a short walk from the town centre and approximately 10 minute walk from the train station. There is an excellent bus service that will take you wherever you want to go in Cumbria; i.e Windermere/Bowness, Ambleside, Grassmere, and Keswick.
There is a good variety of restaurants in town and of course Cumbria is a wonderful haven for walkers.
