Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy!

One of the reasons health experts give walking rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the bus stop may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and the time or cost to get there) can be. Orchard Place is only a short walk from a range of local amenities within Appleby town centre, including Co-Op and Spar convenience stores, a Post Office, bakery, banks, pubs as well as local independent shops. The location of the development also means there are also plenty of opportunities for leisure walks in the surrounding area.
