Floods, December 2015

Cartmel Valley after the floods of December 2015. No problems here.

2nd January 2016

Our cottages and villages were not been affected by the floods that hit some parts of Cumbria in December 2015.

Cumbria is the 3rd largest county in England and only a small percentage of Cumbria was affected by floods.

All the lakes and major tourist attractions are still easily accessible. It’s business as usual.

The A591 alongside Thirlmere is currently closed as are the bridges at Pooley Bridge and Eamont Bridge.

The image above is the Cartmel Valley and was taken by myself after the floods hit other areas.


It is vital to spread the word that only a very small percentage of the Cumbria and Lake District were affected by the floods.

The last time there was bad floods in Cumbria, small business like ours were badly hit across the whole county as people wrongly assumed that all of Cumbria and Lake District had been affected by flooding.

The vast majority of the roads, gorgeous villages, Lake District attractions and stunning scenery have not been affected and we need to stress that it’s ‘BUSINESS AS USUAL!’

If you love Cumbria and Lake District, please visit now, enjoy all the things that you love doing in the Lake District, do some shopping in our lovely independent shops, enjoy our wonderful cafes and bakeries, enjoy superb local food in our excellent restaurants and of course a drink or 2 in one of our many country and village pubs.

Finish off your day back in your warm, cosy holiday cottage in front of a roaring log fire with a bowl of scrumptious Cartmel sticky Pudding!
