Housing & Schools


Affordability and quality  are synonymous with the housing market throughout Cumbria and North Lancashire with a vast and very varied selection to suit all budgets. Although many choose to live along the convenient M6 corridor between Carlisle and Lancaster we have lawyers living in places like Keswick and Cockermouth. Housing is generally very affordable outside of the central Lakes.


Schools in the area are also excellent

For instance in Lancaster there is the traditional and outstanding Lancaster Royal Grammar School and Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School. In Penrith there is the excellent Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (a number of our lawyers have had and have children there).

There are also a significant number of excellent state secondary schools scattered throughout the rest of our area e.g. Keswick School and Nelson Thomlinson in North Cumbria and Queen Elizabeth and Ripley St Thomas in South Cumbria and Lancashire.
Primary Schools are generally very good everywhere.
