Swan House - 2 bedroom
This exclusive contemporary development of stone faced town houses and apartments, each with its own terrace to make the most of the waterside location, is excellently situated alongside the canal basin. The setting is delightful – swans and ducks swim amongst the pretty narrow boats moored along the canal, which runs south to Lancaster and beyond. Canoeists and canal boat enthusiasts enjoy their pursuits and towpath walks are a favourite with visitors, who can take in the tranquillity of the water or join in the friendly boating banter of the canalside. The surrounding views are over a rural landscape and in the distance are the majestic Lake District fells. An excellent base for holidays and relaxing breaks, with good connections to fast roads nearby, these luxuriously appointed properties (refs E4821 & E4823) offer easy access to some of Britain’s best loved countryside – the southerly edge of the Lake District National Park is a 15 mile drive and the market town of Kendal, gateway to the Lakes, is only 13 miles, whilst the beautiful Yorkshire Dales are also under half an hour’s drive. Close by, the historic university town of Lancaster (9 miles) with its castles, museums, theatre and parks is well worth a visit and the breathtakingly lovely open water of Morecambe Bay at the charming village of Arnside lies just 8 miles distant. Golfers will head to the pretty village of Silverdale (5 miles), which is also the location of RSPB Leighton Moss. Just 500 yards away is a welcoming inn serving good food and within easy walking distance there is a farm village where visitors will find a shop selling crafts and local produce, a good café and even animals to pet.
