As one of the most historic cities in the North West of England, and with its stunning location in the countryside, there’s plenty to see and do in Carlisle. Its rural setting means that its ideal for walkers: the Solway Estuary is to the west, the Pennines to the east, the Lake District is to the south, and Northumberland and the Scottish borders are to the north. This means it’s a fantastic place for those with a love of the great outdoors, who also want the amenities of life in a bustling town.
Now is a great time to purchase a home in Carlisle. Due to investment, the town is going through a period of regeneration, and at the heart of this is ambitious growth in the levels of affordable housing.
