Living in Cumbria

Find your work-life balance

Love visiting Cumbria, but not sure what it offers as a permanent base? Well, here’s the answer: a lot.

Festivals, music, fell walking, water sports, country pubs, lively nightlife, great shops, culture, theatre, restaurants, quaint villages, and bustling towns - you name it, we’ve got it!



Whether you want to eat a burger off a piece of slate in a trendy industrial-chic restaurant, admire a Monet masterpiece, or escape city life in exchange for rolling hills, Cumbria has opportunities a-plenty. And there's more time to embrace these things, too.

With picturesque commutes, and no insane traffic jams, living in Cumbria gives you the rare opportunity to enjoy a work-life balance that’s second-to-none.
