Why live in Carlisle?

Carlisle is a historic town and the gateway to Scotland. The city’s vibrant social scene and proximity to some of the most beautiful nature the UK has to offer makes it an attractive place to live.

As a town, Carlisle is relatively isolated, but its fantastic transport connections mean you won’t feel that. The M6 runs into Scotland and south down to Preston, the A69 takes you east to Newcastle, and the A595 puts the Lake District within easy reach. Carlisle is a main station on the West Coast Main Line with several different train operators running through the station. By train, London is just shy of 3 hours 40 minutes and Edinburgh is just over an hour away.

Nestled between two areas of natural beauty and the Lake District National Park, Carlisle is the perfect base for people who love to spend time in nature. The Lake District is less than an hours drive and has all the walks and cycle paths you could wish for.

Carlisle isn’t short on culture either. Home to several museums, a castle, galleries and a cathedral, you can soak up the city’s ancient Roman history or enjoy modern-day art and music.

Local area guide

The Town

Carlisle is the Cumbria’s largest county town and the primary administrative, cultural, and commercial centre for the north Cumbria area. The City of Carlisle extends to a geographical area that includes the town of Carlisle and surrounding hinterlands to cover a total area of around 402 square miles, this classifies Carlisle as the largest city in England. 

Originally a Roman town, Carlisle boasts a rich history with striking landmarks that make the area such a desirable place to live; of special note are Carlisle Castle and Cathedral that have both looked down on the border town for over 900 years. Hadrian’s Wall is a big draw to the area for those that are interested in the history of the roman occupation and Scottish and English disputes throughout the ages.


More modern attractions include the Racecourse where in addition to the usual horse racing facilities, the location also hosts a stadium, arena, and sports venue where many open-air concerts, performances, and events take place throughout the year; it is also home to the local football team, Carlisle United.


Carlisle is conveniently positioned near to the M6 to provide ease of access to the UKs motorway infrastructure and is on the mainline London to Glasgow rail network. In 2019 Carlisle got its own regional airport making Carlisle more accessible for commuters, businesses, and pleasure seekers.

Local Area

Major employers in the region are McVities and Carrs (of tasty biscuit and cracker fame), Nestle, the global food and drink manufacturers, Pirelli tyres, and Innovia, (the company that prints the UKs bank notes) is located in Wigton.

The local area boasts some high performing educational establishments, among them are; James Rennie School, Richard Rose Central & Morton Academies, Trinity School, and The Nelson Thomlinson School in Wigton.  There is also a popular University and College of Art in the vibrant town of Carlisle.

Surrounding Areas

Locations such as Wetheral, Dalston, and towns and villages north of the river remain ever popular for home buyers, as do Brampton, Hayton, Lanercost with its beautiful priory ruins, and Wigton just 10 mins away from the National Park is a very popular location for locals and visitors to the area.


Carlisle properties are popular with people moving from the surrounding areas of Cumbria and south west Scotland for employment with the larger local employers or for a more cosmopolitan lifestyle than more rural areas can offer. The range of housing types also provides wide choice for local buyers; there are homes suitable for first time buyers, students and young people looking to find economical rented accommodation, families wishing to downsize or upscale their current home in response to changing needs,  and those looking for the perfect forever home.

The Hunters Carlisle area enjoys a varied property market offering a wide choice of housing solutions to suit all tastes and budgets. We are always able to offer properties ranging from rental properties at entry level prices, to luxury homes priced within the more exclusive upper price range, and of course, everything in between.
