There are a range of amenities nearby. The A69 provides a link to the market town of Brampton and west to the regional centre of Carlisle which is 6.5 miles. Brampton has a good range of local amenities including the popular William Howard Secondary School. Carlisle, the regions capital, has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. There is an attractive central pedestrianised area and an impressive cathedral and castle.
