Cumbria and Lancashire posess outstanding natural beauty, England's tallest mountains, deepest lakes and two national parks.
As England's second-biggest county, Cumbria provides a tapestry of urban and country life which tourists can't help but fall for. Anecdotal opinion strongly suggests that many companies and investors move here after visiting the county as a tourist, attracted by the prospect of Cumbria’s natural beauty and cultural offer on a full-time basis and far from the stresses and strains of urban living.
While property prices vary depending on the area – homes are usually more expensive within national parks than those outside – the total cost of living is normally low. Those moving to Cumbria will also find good primary and secondary schools for their children. At age 11, Cumbria's educational attainment comes in the top 5 per cent in England.
Cumbria is one of the safest areas to live and raise a family with one of the country's lowest levels of crime. There is a wealth of statistics on all things from education and property and health and population. Better still, organise a holiday and see for yourself. Everything you need to know is online.
