Quality of Life in Cumbria


We believe in striking a healthy work/lfe balance and offer a great place to live as well as work.

Our Wigton site in Cumbria is based in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK, on the north-west boundary of the Lake District National Park.  Cumbria often comes top in surveys of Britain's best places to live.

Within 30 minutes of leaving work on a summer evening you could be walking up Skiddaw (a local mountain), sailing across a lake, or taking in the stunning Solway Coast, which is just a 20 minute drive away.

You'll have the best of both worlds:  the historical border city of Carlisle is just 20 minutes away and has all the major retail outlets you would expect in a city centre, including an impressive range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.  Also 20 minutes away is the M6 motorway with links to Newcastle, Manchester,  Glasgow and Edinburgh.


Schools and Housing

Property prices are reasonable and there is a good choice of homes to rent in both city and rural locations.

Crime rates are low and the local pre-schools and primary schools are of an exceptionally high standard.  Wigton has one of the finest comprehensive schools in the country Nelson Thomlinson School.
