A new home here gives you all that Carlisle has to offer, with the stunning Lake District on the horizon and the Scottish border just 8 miles away.
Amberwood is our new collection of family-sized four and five-bedroom homes on the southwest outskirts of Carlisle. Choosing a new home here is the perfect example of having the best of both worlds – city life and the famous countryside of the Lake District both on your doorstep.
Carlisle is the largest and only city in Cumbria and so you’ll be able to make the most of its facilities, services and attractions. These include a mainline train station for national travel, a castle, a cathedral and the remains of the city walls to show your friends, a mostly pedestrianised city centre and the popular Lanes Shopping Centre for all you need. The centre of Carlisle is only a little over 2 miles from Amberwood.
With the M6 to the east of the city, you’ve got the main north-south route nearby for the Scottish border at Gretna Green and for easy access through Cumbria and Lancashire to the Midlands.
