Family home, in a pretty Cumbrian town close to the Lake District National Park. Due to the current situation we are looking for a UK swap for the end of August, (preferably somewhere near the coast) and an exchange outside of Europe in summer 2021.

Ulverston is a pretty market town just outside the Lake District National Park. It is a lively town with many festivals throughout the year and is home to the Manjushri Buddhist Centre.
We live only a short drive from many attractions, including a zoo and many activities for children. The house is excellently placed to enjoy the walking, leisure and historical attractions in the Lake District. We are also close to the sea and there are many lovely beaches nearby.

From Ulverston station you can travel to Lancaster and from there join the intercity train network. In less than 4 hours you could be in London!
However, our recent exchange guests spent more than a week visiting places within just 30 minutes drive of our house!

Please look at this Google map I have made that shows many of the wonderful places to see nearby:

The nearest airport is Manchester Airport (less than 2 hours by car) and there is also a train to Ulverston from there. The train station is a 15 minute walk or a short taxi ride from our home. It is possible to reach some attractions on public transport, but a car is necessary to experience the many different attractions in the area. Cars can easily be rented from Manchester Airport.
