About the location

Shap Village is a quaint village in the East of Cumbria, 10 miles South of Penrith and just a 5-minute drive from Junction 39 of the M6 motorway.

This historic village is a key accommodation stop-over point for walkers undertaking the Coast2Coast route from St Bees on the west coast to Robin Hood's Bay on the east coast, giving the area a real buzz, particularly in the summer months.

There are three pubs in the village, plus a CoOp grocery store and a great fish and chip takeaway, ideal for nights when you don't fancy cooking in the apartment.

Shap is perfect for walkers, too, thanks to the variety of walking trails nearby in Swindale or around the Haweswaer Reservoir. A little further afield is Ullswater, where you'll find the Helveyllen range amongst other great fells walks. Ullswater is also home to the Ullswater Steamers - a fleet of heritage boats that sail along the length of Ullswater - popular for the fantastic scenery.

Another popular nearby attraction is Lowther Castle and Gardens, with something for all ages. Sadly, today, the castle lies in ruins, surrounded by gardens within gardens and an adventure playground to rival the best in the land.

Overall, Shap is a great base from which to explore the South and the North Lake District, and we are sure you'll enjoy the stunning scenery, friendly locals and wonderful accommodation.
