Farleton is a village near Milnthorpe in South Lakeland local government district, Cumbria, England. It is in Beetham civil parish.[1]

Historically within the county of Westmorland, Farleton lies just to the east of the main A6070 road, from which it is divided by the Lancaster Canal, some 8 12 miles (13.7 km) south of Kendal. Farleton used to have one public house called 'the Duke' after the Grand Old Duke of York but this was turned into a dwelling house in the early part of the twentieth century. With Farleton there is a small river and one post box. There is also a Lime Stone Kiln and the remains of a lime stone quarry.
