Slapestones had everything we could want from a holiday home; Comfy beds, a powerful shower and absolutely spotless. Amanda was the perfect host, and provided amazing advice when needed. Absolutely loved our time here and we were lucky enough to get the sun.

About the neighbourhood
Slapestones is set in its own enclave of four executive properties. It is set back from the road, surrounding by field and woodland with good views from all sides. The nearest neighbours from this point are actually quite far away!
Getting around
The most convenient way to see the surrounding areas is by car. There is a very limited rural bus service. The nearest train station is Foxfield, about 4 miles away where you can get trains to Barrow in Furness, Millom or as travel as far as Carlisle for those wishing to explore a little further afield.

Airport: Manchester: 40.0 km
Railway: Foxfield: 3.0 km

After around 12 miles, you will see the first sign for Broughton and then a second sign on the right (this sign is brown). Continue on the A595, go through a set of traffic lights and climb up the hill. Just after the top of the hill take the first left. You have arrived. The postcode of the property is LA18 5HY.
