The village is located in a level setting, just outside the Lake District National Park, in the centre of the Cartmel Peninsula offering a thriving community with both Junior and Secondary schools, shops sufficient for daily needs and a good supply of pubs and eating houses. With easy access to more extensive amenities at Grange-over-Sands (2 miles away), the village is only a few minutes drive off the A590, allowing good access to the National road network. Railway stations at Cark-in-Cartmel and Grange-Over-Sands provide access to the regular services of the West Coast main line.
