On Site Facilities - Designed for Active Users
24/7 Access, 365 Days a Year
As a self storage facility with active users in mind, you can access your individual garage/leisure unit whenever you want. There's no notice period, just turn up, let yourself in through security, and retrieve your leisure or business equipment. Easy.
Our storage units are perfect for holiday home owners users in the Lake District, if you don't have enough space in your cottage or lodge - a very common occurrence here.
Customer Washdown Facility
Free to use customer wash down facility (6m x 7m) for cleaning your car and equipment after a hard weekend's enjoyment. Water tap provided (please use your own pressure washer) on a large purpose made concrete wash area with oil trap to ensure that our wonderful becks and tarns are kept clean.
Our Customer welcome area, with small waiting lounge, offers hot drinks, library with information on local drives and activities. It is approximately 720 sq ft, comfortably furnished and provides a meeting room for businesses, available whenever you need it - perfect for car rental companies, car club and touring orgainisers.
We also have a warm and clean toilet facility for customers.
You can also relax outside in the tropical Cumbrian sunshine on our picnic tables and benches.
We take security very seriously. We chose our site very carefully so that it has natural defences - two sides adjoin green fields with steep embankments, one side has a 20' high wall, the other side adjoins another business. We have installed the very latest high security electric gate at the entrance that records all incoming and outgoing traffic; sonic/vibration perimeter fence detection; the whole site is covered by security lighting and cloud based cctv surveillance with remote monitoring; linked to the local police; we provide high security locks to all individual units. This ensures that your equipment is safe and sound all year round. Cumbria has in any case one of the very lowest crime rates in the country.
All customers' keys are stored off site in a high security safe.
Although many of our customers enjoy looking after their own cars themselves, there are some great local garages nearby who are very familiar with older and new cars, such as Braithwaites Garage in Newbiggin, where you can also have your annual MOT carried out.
You may also like to have your car professionally valeted - you can deal directly with some excellent local companies.
There is a huge amount of accommodation in the local area, from swanky hotels, to charming cottages and b&b's. Our customers are able to enjoy discounts at our own accommodation - Nutkin Cottage, at Whitbarrow Village just 3 miles away; and Rockwood, a traditional self catering farmhouse for 10 guests in Grasmere.
