Self catering holiday cottages in Firbank, Cumbria, England

Firbank could be an excellent place for a cottage escape in Cumbria.  Firbank is a small village in the South Lakeland area of Cumbria - a good spot for a self-catering break. Its greatest claim to fame is that George Fox once preached at what is known as Fox’s Pulpit on Firbank Fell in 1652. Fox founded the Quaker movement and this meeting was very influential on the founding of the organisation. A plaque marks the spot where the meeting took place.

St. John the Evangelist, the village church, built in 1842, has a quite plain but attractive interior. Anglers will find local opportunities for fishing on the River Lune and River Rawthey, with stocks of sea trout, brown trout and salmon. Permits can also be obtained for fishing at Killington Lake. The lake is also a popular spot for canoeing, windsurfing and dinghy sailing, on application of a day ticket for visitors.

To the west of Killington Lake, Burns Beck Moss Nature Reserve is a Site of Special Scientific Interest covering 47 acres. This reserve offers sightings of various bird species, such as herons, tawny owls, snipe and curlews plus animals such as roe deer, hares and foxes.

The nearby town of Sedbergh attracts walkers who want to explore the Howgill Fells and golfers are made welcome at Sedbergh Golf Club. About one mile from Sedbergh, Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre houses the work of artists and craftspeople on three floors of what used to be a weaving and spinning mill. Temporary exhibitions are popular too and the fourth floor is the home of handlooms and floor looms. On weekdays, visitors can see weavers busily at work on the looms, carrying on the traditions of the old mill. Other crafts are also often demonstrated, such as making rag rugs and lace items.

It’s a short drive to the popular South Lakeland town of Kendal, famous for Kendal mint cake and so much more. Lots of amenities include no less than five shopping arcades. Kendal Museum tells the story of the 12th century castle, the ruins of which you can visit for terrific views of the town. Abbot Hall Art Gallery satisfies the art seekers and the Museum of Lakeland Life, housed in the former stables of Abbot Hall, exhibits farm machinery and tools that depict the traditional way of doing things in rural communities. In addition, the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology is one of the country’s oldest museums.

Firbank, then, has history, wildlife and modern amenities on its doorstep in a picturesque part of the world, perfect for a relaxing holiday staying in a self-catering country cottage.
