The property

Burton-in-Kendal 1.3 miles.

This unique, charming, detached, stone cottage is a former stable block on a small family estate, close to the pretty village of Burton-in-Kendal in the South Lakes.

This delightful romantic cottage is in a perfect location to explore this beautiful part of the country.

Sweeping through the electric gate, up the drive through the private parkland, sets the scene for this special cottage.

Park in the courtyard and enter this cosy cottage through the stable door where on the ground floor there is a cottage-style kitchen with dining area.

The bedroom on the ground floor has beautiful beams and looks out onto pretty woodland, giving a real sense of away from it all in your own snug retreat.

There are beautiful carved wooden headboards, and as you gaze up you will see beams and the mezzanine level of the lounge upstairs.

The comfortable sitting room has an exposed stone wall, beams and a French door leading to the raised terrace overlooking the cobbled courtyard and woodland, where you can sit with a morning coffee or your favourite evening drink.

Burton-in-Kendal is an elegant village with a shop and pub, and this attractive cottage is ideally placed for walking, as it is located beneath Farleton Knott, which has extensive limestone pavements.

From here, you can see extensive views of the stunning area to the estuary coast, including Warton Cragg, Arnside Knott and Lakeland Fells.

From this lovely cottage, the historic market town of Kirby Lonsdale is seven miles away, with its host of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants and, not forgetting, the famous Devil’s Bridge.

Also, locally is Leighton Moss RSPB, next to Silverdale and Arnside coastal villages, both well worth visiting, with many glorious walks and cycling routes.

You will even be able to watch birds closer to home, with the resident peacocks, cockerels and geese freely roaming through the grounds, taking a stroll beneath the balcony, or getting ready to settle in the large ewe tree across the courtyard.

This cottage is ideally placed as you can explore the coast, whilst the lakes at Windermere are a short drive away, and the Yorkshire Dales is within reach.

With the villages of Settle and Ingleton being so close, this is an ideal spot from which to explore this beautiful and diverse area.

About the location


Kirkby Lonsdale 7 miles; Kendal 12 miles.

A small, traditional Cumbrian village set in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and the peaceful Forest of Bowland. The village has a Post Office/general store, a butcher and a pub that serves good food. It lies 7 miles from the lovely old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, and 12 miles from Kendal, the gateway to the Lake District. There is easy access to many areas of interest, with the historic city of Lancaster and the seaside resorts of Morecambe and Blackpool all within easy reach. The acclaimed RSPB wildfowl reserve of Leighton Moss is only 4 miles away, while Morecambe Bay is also famous for birdwatching. Other locations well worth a visit are the villages of Silverdale and Arnside (overlooking the beautiful Kent Estuary), Ingleton, Settle and Clapham. Levens Hall (famous topiary) and medieval Sizergh Castle with a beautiful garden are nearby. Good pubs and restaurants are also abound in the area. There is plenty of good walking nearby, and golf, fishing and riding are all available locally.
