 'Celtic Cumbria...’

Low Furness is a land of stunning seascapes, beautiful skies, subtle light and spiritual heritage, tucked away between the Lake District mountains and Morecambe Bay.

Nature and heritage jostle for attention in this special area of Cumbria. Picturesque villages nestle against a scenic backdrop of countryside and coast, stretching from the endless expanses of Morecambe Bay to lush, gentle countryside inland, framed by the spectacular peaks of the Lake District fells.

Here you can discover a hidden corner of Cumbria, and one that is steeped in history - Roman, Celtic and Viking influences all add to the atmosphere of mystery that swathes the countryside. Evidence of mankind from the earliest times lies relatively undisturbed across the Furness Peninsula. There are stone circles, burial mounds, earthworks, standing stones and sacred wells alongside significant remains of Neolithic, Bronze Age and Roman habitation. 

There are miles of coastline to explore - from the seemingly endless expanse of Bardsea beach to the raw and atmospheric surroundings of Roa Island. Inland, rich farmland and ancient woodlands rise to limestone crags with panoramic views across the Lake District and Morecambe Bay.
