Where is it?
We live in a secluded hamlet and overlook fields & countryside, although we are just a six minute taxi ride from Kendal.
Neighbours are very friendly, very practical and always helpful. Without exception they all love the outdoors, particularly cycling.
You can walk or cycle right from the house so no need for a car. You can walk up high on the hills or low down along the River Mint. The Cumbrian Way passes within a mile of the house. Mealbank is midway between the Lake District National Park and The Yorkshire Dales which are easily accessible by car or taxi then public transport.
The birdsong is delightful. The evening sky is full of skylarks, swifts and house martins. You'll see heron & buzzards and hear the local woodpecker. You'll spot deer before they leap away and you'll find otter sprint but be very very fortunate to see the otters themselves. You'll pass many cows and walk among numerous sheep. It's a little bit of paradise. In the late spring the bluebells, wild garlic and woodland anemones are just spectacular and come the autumn, the colours and sounds are so atmospheric. In the winter, the frosts produce a magical display on the trees and hedgerows and occasionally we get blanketed in snow. Once dark the night sky is wonderfully clear.
