Location

Gilcrux, England, United Kingdom

Gilcrux is a lovely village and everyone makes you feel very welcome. The pub, The Mason's Arms is fantastic, serving real ale and delicious meals and only metres from the door. We have a fabulous village hall with regular events, church (St Mary's), village green and for children we have a new play park (opened June 2015 and due to be extended by Summer 2021). There is also a trout farm at the edge of the village (Gilcrux Springs Trout Farm) for visitors to enjoy an afternoon of tranquil fishing.
We enjoy going for local walks as well as getting in the car for the short journey to the coast or to Buttermere.

I arrived in West Cumbria about 20 years ago or so and absolutely love it, especially our lovely little village of Gilcrux. I am a working mum and so never stop running around but if I get the chance I do enjoy reading, gardening and going for walks up the fells, around the lakes, down the country lanes, through the woods or along the beach...bored is not a word we use around here!
