Research, carried out by London-based estate agents, Hamptons International suggested that Cumbria best combines affordability with life satisfaction.

Allerdale was top of the list which was no great suprise to those of us who already live in the area. We're lucky enough to have the best of both worlds with beaches, lakes and mountains all on the doorstep.

What really makes Allerdale unique is its towns, each one has something different, its own identity, its own history.

The beautiful town of Maryport is steeped in history, recent digs by archaeologists have allowed them to extend the history of Roman Maryport to before Hadrian's Wall was built but there's so much more to Maryport than just Romans. Its quaint main street that leads to the harbour is unlike any other in Cumbria and if you head towards Flemming Square you'll be

pleasantly surprised to find a Mediterranean-esque square and a hint at the town's history. Not forgetting the towns harbour perfect for a leisurely stroll with breathtaking views across the Solway.  

It might seem strange to describe Keswick as one of our hidden gems, especially when you consider that it's overrun with tourists for six months of the year but in the winter months this picturesque town full of extraordinary businesses and surrounded protectively by the fells takes on a completely new identity.The lake side, no longer bustling with walkers is peace itself which gives you the chance to take in the views. You can move freely from shop to shop and appreciate the true beauty of the town.

Workngton with its regeneration has become a popular  shopping destination but when you leave the town centre and head  off the beaten track towards Portland Square and the old market place you see a completely different side to the town and gain an insight as to what it was like in years gone by.

Famed for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth, Fletcher Christian and John Dalton Cockermouth's found its own niche with its idealistic high street. Full of independent businesses and only a handful of national chains  Cockerouth is the perfect depiction of the High Street 30 ago.The recent regeneration in the market place has given the older buildings a modem twist with businesses a bright, new lick of paint and nodding to the area's agriculture with the bright seating area formed by recycled tractor seats alongside some more contemporary ones

making it the perfect place to sit and soak up the peaceful atmosphere

here in this quieter part of the town.
