Housing in Cumbria

Cumbria offers a wide selection of properties – from modern and stylish apartments through to character cottages and spacious detached housing.

Whether looking to buy or rent, the property market suits all budgets and has been bolstered in recent years with new housing developments, particularly Story Homes' The Beeches, in South Cumbria, and The Ridings, Crindledyke Farm and Alders Edge in North Cumbria.

If you prefer more traditional housing, Cumbria has character properties in abundance, and it's often more affordable than it would be in larger cities.
