Shap has a number of good pubs with restaurants www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/results.shtml/el/Shap%3BCumbria/
There may be other pubs and restaurants I have missed off. This is not intentional and is not intended to be a definitive list or recommendation. Just a starting point
A local taxi company is Allens of Eden www.allensofeden.co.uk/ and is based in Tebay
The property is rural and as a result does not have a particularly good internet connectivity. We at best get 2Mb down load so ok for getting emails and limited web browsing but not for streaming movies.
The elevated position does mean that 3/4G mobile connectivity is reasonable particularly with Vodafone and EE
Useful tip when driving to the property is that the M6 motorway can be reached or left via Tebay services.
