You desire to be builders of peace, possess it yourselves first (Augustine Sermon 357.2)
Boarbank Hall is beautifully situated in the south of Cumbria, near the village of Allithwaite, just a few miles from Grange-over-Sands. It faces south, overlooking Humphrey Head and the wide expanse of Morecambe Bay, while to the north is the beautiful region of the Lake District.
Things to do
Many people visit the area for the wonderful hill-walking in and around the Lake District. The surrounding area has many other opportunities for leisurely pursuits - walking, photography, wild life and painting - even parachuting at nearby Cark Airfield.
Local attractions include Grange itself with its shops, promenade and park; the ancient village of Cartmel with its twelfth century Augustinian Priory, race course, and "Sticky Toffee Pudding" Village Shop; and the stately home of Holker Hall.
Local events through the year include the Holker Garden Festival, the Steam Rally at Cark and the Cartmel Races.
A little further afield can be found Sizergh Castle, Levens Hall, Furness Abbey, the Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount (homes of William Wordsworth), Brantwood (home of John Ruskin), Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter), and many other places of interest and beauty.
