Our latest guests – and indeed a number of others recently – have chosen to reach us by rail rather than road. Travelling from Kent would have been a long drive and, you would assume, a lengthy train journey. But no, you would be surprised, the mainline trains are quite fast nowadays. If you pick the right trains with few stops or few changes, you can be here before you know it. Here are some rail journey times that might surprise you:
London Euston to Oxenholme the Lake District – 2 hours 38 minutes
Glasgow Central to Oxenholme the Lake District – 1 hour 42 minutes
Manchester Airport to Oxenholme the Lake District – 1 hour 28 minutes
Edinburgh Waverley to Oxenholme the Lake District – 1 hour 49 minutes
Birmingham to Oxenholme the Lake District – 2 hours 2 minutes
To reach us, you can take a taxi from Oxenholme from where it is just a few miles into town. Alternatively, you can change trains and take the Windermere branch line to Kendal station, from where our accommodation is just a short walk away.
