I took a French family to High arnside, a bit apprehensive as I wanted to give them the best possible impression of Cumbria! . I couldn't have made a better choice. They were bowled over by the superb situation. They loved the cottage, well- equipped and comfortable. The father collected wood for the stove every day, on his morning walk... even though wood was available in the store. Arriving late at night, the drive was a bit daunting for the first time, but very quickly got accustomed to it and enjoyed seeing all the sheep and lambs on the way down to the main road.A good central situation for visiting all the sights such as Hilltop, Muncaster Castle, the Buddhist temple near Ulverston etc.
The French family are farmers and so very much enjoyed talking to the farmer who runs the farm, managing to communicate in spite of the language difficulties.
Being a native of Cumbria, I wasn't expecting good weather at that time of year, but we only had one rainy day, and there was plenty to do even then.
