When the Sunday Times tells you about the best place to live you listen, and lucky for us one of the places in the Top 50 best villages in the country is Cartmel! (We sell lots of beautiful properties in this scenic little village)
Market towns and villages have always been extremely popular no matter what is going on in the housing market. But why do we have such an obsession with these provincial conurbations? It seems it must be something to do with the way of life that we associate with these picturesque and historical places.
The old architecture and the obvious absence of town planning add to the charm and authenticity of life in a market town. In Cumbria we have ten beautiful market towns that all celebrate the beauty of rural British life. With annual Fares and Fetes and weekly street markets, there is something rather glorious and European about small town markets and small town life.
What we have an even greater wealth of in Cumbria is beautiful and traditional villages. With up and coming Lake District holiday destinations like Cartmel, Arnside, and Milnthorpe going from strength to strength it is difficult to see how any property investment in the South Lakes could be anything other than fantastic.
