Self-catering holiday accommodation in Barrow-in-Furness
A large industrial town, Barrow-in-Furness’ contrast to the rest of the Lake District is obvious. The history in the town is very clear, with many listed buildings, a striking red-brick town hall and clock tower and the presence of the steel works in the town. Once a small hamlet, it is now the biggest iron and steel centre in the world, all manifesting within 40 years. The brainchild of H.W. Schneider, he erected the blast furnaces in the area and helped grow the town what it is today. James Ramsden is another notable name in the area, having planned the town’s layout during its quick growth.
A stay in one of our Barrow-in-Furness cottages will ensure you are well placed to explore the South Lakes area of the Lake District and towns such as Haverthwaite, Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel.
