The small village of Witherslack lies tucked beneath Whitbarrow Scar, in a lovely area running south east from the shores of Lake Windermere, encompassing fell, woodland, river and valley bottom. The village consists of a huddle of fine, stone built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. Nearby Lindale has a true 'Lakeland feel' with its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and quaint old pubs, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit. With Lake Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead a short drive away, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.

We had an enjoyable stay in this cosy cottage. It is in a lovely location in the woods, with walks from the door ideal for dogs! Some excellent local pubs with good food. Woodburning stove very welcome in the cold weather.

This cottage is really lovely. Sitting just inside a private estate make it very quiet and exclusive and the location is perfect for just walking straight out of the door into the woods, its just perfect. So glad we found it.
