The Duddon Estuary

Train Journey Along the Cumbrian Coast

 

Start your journey at the Edwardian seaside town of Grange-over-Sands or either of the picturesque villages of Arnside or Cark-in-Cartmel and travel along the spectacular Cumbrian coast with the sea on 1 side and the Lake District mountains and fells on the other side of the train.

You’ll see far more from the train than you can see by road as the train goes over several stunning estuaries and hugs the coast all the way up the west coast of Cumbria to Carlisle. The last part of the journey has the Lake District mountains on 1 side of the train and looking across the Cumbrian coast to the Scottish mountains of Galloway on the other side.

For your return journey either travel back along the Cumbrian coast and sit on the other side of the train so you can see the scenary you missed earlier, or if you get your timetables out (or use the National Rail Website) you can travel from Carlisle down the amazing Settle to Carlisle railway to Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. Change trains here after your journey through the gorgeous Eden Valley and Yorkshire Dales and then experience more of the Western Yorkshire Dales as you travel to Carnforth where you finally change once more for 1 or 2 stops back to where you started from-unless of course you decide to start your epic journey from Carnforth.

What a lovely cottage in an amazing part of the world. The cottage had everything we needed.

The village of Cark is very friendly for both children and dogs. There is a lovely safe walk to Cartmel which was enjoyed by all of us. Will defo return 🤗 – Sara, Burnley

Carree Cottage Reviews

5 out of 5 Review on Trip Advisor

“Lovely comfortable Cottage!!”

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely comfortable cottage. Cottage is pet friendly too and our pet dog “George” really enjoyed his stay and was very relaxed staying in the cottage.

We loved the whole layout and it was so well equipped. Spotless bed linen and towels also.The real log fireplace was really cosy to light on an evening after enjoyable long /short walks.

We really enjoyed looking up at the star filled sky on a clear night from the cottage garden. It’s in such a lovely peaceful place. It’s in a great location too. Lovely friendly pub “The Engine Inn” is less than 2 minutes walk away. Handy grocery shop/general store “Londis” is also less than 2 minutes away.

Simon has thought of everything and his recommended walks written in the guest book were a great help.

We will highly recommend staying in your cottages to family/friends/colleagues. Thank you!! – Liza

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 Review on ‘Trip Advisor’

“Amazing house!”

We can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed Cartmel Hill.

The house is beautiful, even nicer than expected, so spacious. Lots of room for our group of 7, so nice to have so many bathrooms and living space to spread out when we wanted.

The summer house is awesome, what a wonderful place to have a glass of wine and play some games at night.

Cartmel village is wonderful, so many friendly people and great shops and restaurants.

We loved taking the public footpaths through the forest to get to the village. Also enjoyed exploring the footpaths up the hill from the house – what views!!

Simon is a great host, house was easy to find thanks to his directions. We hope to come back to Cartmel one day and wouldn’t hesitate to book Cartmel Hill again. Thanks Simon! – Gillian Pettersen – Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
