The Old Pottery is situated in the pretty village of Lindale that lies between the sands of Morecambe Bay and the stunning scenery of the Lake District.
Situated just a couple of miles from the beautiful Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands, which boasts its own railway station, with easy access to and from Manchester airport and the rest of the UK. The property is within 4 miles of Cartmel, a village which has grown up around its famous 12th Century medieval Priory Church. Although steeped in history, Cartmel is not trapped in time and the village offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, a wide variety of traditional Lakeland inns and cutting-edge gourmet restaurants, including the internationally acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant, L'Enclume. Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings. Cartmel is also known for its famous racecourse where meetings are regularly held throughout the year.
Ideally located to explore the wonders of the English Lake District, we have walkers, canoeists, sailors, bird watchers ( Ospreys use Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve as a nesting site), water skiers, fishermen, golfers, horse race goers, cyclists, foodies and historians. The Old Pottery is 8 miles from Newby Bridge, at the foot of Lake Windermere where you will find the Lakeland Motor Museum, Ambio cafe ( from where you can watch the water rapids), Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam engine ride to Lakeside Aquarium and then hop on a ferry to Bowness, Ambleside or Brockhole. From Newby Bridge you can easily get either side of Lake Windermere to either, Bowness, Ambleside, Glenridding, Coniston, Hawkshead, Far Sawrey (home of Beatrice Potter) and Keswick.
The Lyth Valley lies behind Cartmel Fell to the east of Lake Windermere. The valley is known for its serene agricultural landscapes, its vibrant damson blossom in the spring ( at harvest time look out for locally made damson jam and damson gin from the valley in the local artisan food and farm shops) and its widely-acclaimed Lake District gastropubs including The Punchbowl at Crosthwaite, The Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank and the Hare and Hounds at Bowland Bridge.
Not far away is the market town of Ulverston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel. You can see the house he was born in and visit the Laurel and Hardy museum. There is a wonderful bronze statue of Stan and Ollie outside the Coronation Hall.
From Ulverston you can take the beautiful coast road towards Barrow and at Rampside you access Roa Island and then take a small boat crossing to Piel Island, with it's pub and Castle.
