Local area

The Ridings sits on the south eastern fringe of Carlisle, close enough to the city centre for all your needs, yet far enough away to offer the quieter lifestyle of a small town. If you're looking for some relaxing leisure time, Hammond's Pond is close to. The Ridings development and is a great place to visit. Families, dog walkers and
lovers of the outdoors can spend many an hour at Hammond's Pond enjoying the peace and quiet or entertaining themselves on the boating lake, play park, football pitches, all weather ball court or the miniature railway. With free parking and a café too, whole days can be spent relaxing here alone or with friends and family. There's a good mix of local shops close to the development including butchers, bakers, convenience stores, a post office and a few independent traders too. The area also has two gymnasiums, one of which has a swimming pool and sauna. Perhaps the area's biggest draw is the nearby racecourse, just a stone's throw from The Ridings', and providing inspiration for the development name itself. As well as creating scenic views, the racecourse provides
entertainment for the whole family all year round. From family fun days to car boot sales, ladies day and regular live entertainment from national and international pop acts, the racecourse is the perfect day or night out.
The Ridings is just a few miles from the M6 motorway north and south, also providing quick access to the A69, A6 and the A595. The area is also well serviced by buses to both the city centre and beyond Carlisle to some of the smaller local villages. The city centre itself is about two miles away, as are many of the area's best attractions and days out. The area offers a wide range of nursery's, primary and secondary schools. These
range from urban schools to smaller out of town schools in quiet and rural locations not far from the city itself. You will also find Carlisle College and the University of Cumbria within Carlisle, offering further and higher education opportunities for older children.
