The Leven Valley & Surrounding Area

Situated at the southern edge of the Lake District National Park, the quiet hamlet of Low Wood rests along side the River Leven, just over 3 miles downstream from the southern end of Windermere.

Despite the location's tranquil nature, the main A590 trunk road is only just over three-quarters of a mile away, and Junction 36 of the M6 only a further 18 miles.

With the railway stations of Ulverston and Cark-in-Cartmel being only a stones throw away, the Clock Tower is also convienient for those planning to commute by train.

Fells & Lakes

On the doorstep of Low Wood are the picturesque towns, spectacular fells, rivers and lakes that make the Lake District one of the most popular tourism areas in the UK, and with England's five tallest mountains and the deepest and largest lakes, Cumbria's rich natural environment is simply unique and breathtaking.

Dining & Entertaining

South Lakeland has an impressive collection of real ale pubs, inns and a variety of local independent breweries, cafes and restaurants that make the ideal venue for eating out or entertaining clients.

In addition to the local shop and post office, the nearby towns of Ulverston, Cartmel and Grange-over-Sands sell a wide variety of authentic local produce, sandwiches and pies that are ideal for lunches on those busy days when you can't leave your desk.

Enjoying The Outdoors

After a day at work, those who like the outdoors and adventure can unwind in what has been described as the county's biggest adventure playground.

Whether you want to walk, pedal, paddle, hike or climb, some of the UK's most beautiful scenery is only a few minutes drive from the Clock Tower at Low Wood.

Woodland & Wildlife

Just over a mile's walk away, down the River Leven, lies Roudsea Wood. This national nature reserve, managed by Natural England, has four distinctive habitats; coastal salt marsh, acid woodland, limestone woodland and a lowland raised mire. Raised boardwalks provide an ideal way to view this stunning scenery without getting your feet wet and muddy.

The footpaths through the woodland around the Clock Tower make an ideal way to have a break from the busy schedule of the working day and if you're quiet you may get to see some of the many different types of wildlife that live there.
