Levens is in the south-east corner of the Lake District, and provides easy access to the southern part of the Lake District, and also to the Windermere and Ambleside area. It is close to other lesser-known tranquil and peaceful areas such as Arnside and Silverdale, and the Lyth Valley. It is easy to get to, being only a few miles from the M6 Junction 36.
