Santon Bridge is not a big hive of activity, but it has so much to offer to those who want to stay there. The village itself and the surrounding areas are amazingly peaceful to be while being just a short distance to adrenaline fuelled activities. You don’t need to fill all of your days, sightseeing or hiking, although Muncaster Castle and the nearby lakes are must-see places, and you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the village and really get away from it all.
The local campsite offers holiday cottages for those who want to enjoy a self-catering holiday. It also means that you are not tied to anyone else’s schedule. You can eat what you want when you want, go out for the day for as long as you like or sleep in as late as you like.
If you do decide to go out for the day, the lakes are just a short drive from Santon Bridge. Wast Water is the closest, but Windermere and Coniston are also close by. The Lake District National Park is a stunningly beautiful area that is popular with campers, hikers and artists and it is easy to see why. The breathtaking landscape also makes a great backdrop for wedding photos, so if you are wishing to get married in the lakes, staying in Santon Bridge is a great way to fulfil your wishes for a perfect day.
The local community of Santon Bridge are very welcoming to visitors, so why not pop by events or exhibitions that are being held at the village hall, grab some refreshment at the local tea rooms, or enjoy an amazing home-cooked lunch at the Bridge Inn. A stroll around the village is enough to blow the cobwebs off and rid yourself of the stresses of your day to day life.
