Crummock Water and Buttermere are within a short drive, the latter dominated by fells including Haystacks where A.W Wainright had his ashes scattered. The nearby village of Loweswater is home to the Kirkstile Inn which has been "providing food and shelter since Tudor times" and has one of the most famous bars in the Lake District serving home-brewed beers. The nearby Gem town of Cockermouth provides everyday amenities with a range of shops, supermarkets, sports centre and many restaurants and pubs.
There is a primary school in Lorton which is just over 4 miles away, while secondary schools are available in Cockermouth and Keswick.
