There are many pleasant walks from the doorstep, whilst Lindale's quaint, narrow streets are home to traditional dwellings, a shop and welcoming old pubs.

    • “This is a superb property. It would be especially suitable for three couples who want some degree of privacy. It is maintained to a very high standard and has plenty of space. Lindale makes a very convenient base to explore the South Cumbria area.”

    • “We thought the house was very spacious and the facilities were of a very high standard. All the rooms were of a high standard. The kitchen was wel equipped and there were plenty of crockery etc. The house was very warm and although we were looking forward to lighting the open fire we did not need to. If we wanted to stay in this area again we would certain hope that this property was available.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The property was of very high standard and as this was the first time we've stayed in a holiday cottage we've been totally spoiled. The decor was excellent and there was such a homely feel from the moment we stepped in. There was so much space in every room and we had plenty of room that the two families that stayed there didn't get under one anothers feet (4 adults, 2 four year olds and a 6 month old). The cottage was ideally located, close to many places to visit and Lindale itself was very quaint and quiet. Couldn't fault the property at all - excellent.”

    • “Our time spent in the Lake District was Ace. Everything about our goliday there was great,the cottage was everything we wished for and more,would highly recommend it. Good base to stay, as there is so much to see and do around the area. Lindale is a nice little village, with a good pub at top of the hill, good food served,with nice friendly staff. Grange-Over-Sands which is a ten minute drive away, is a small town with excellent shops ,and eating places. Not to be missed,as it has lots of features from the Edwardian times. We shall go back thats for sure,as it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the wide open spaces that the Lakes have to offer.Just beautiful.”

    • “Having arrived at the cottage in LINDALE rather earlier than the allocated time, we were met by a young lady who had just finished cleaning it.She was absolutely brilliant and told us everything we wanted to know about the cottage and surrounding area. This is definately the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It is very big and spacious, and finished to a very high specification, situated in a great location for exploring the South Lakes area. There are two pubs nearby, but I wouldnt recommend the bottom one for eating. The one at the top of the hill is far better and has a lovely beer garden if the weather is nice.Be aware, however, that the shop / post office isn't open all day so bring enough supplies for the first couple of days. The supermarkets and shops in Grange-Over-Sands, which is a short drive away ,are well stocked for everything needed during a stay at the cottage. There is nothing negative that I could say about this cottage. It is the best we have ever stayed in and I doubt we will find one as good anywhere in the uk”

    • “Great Location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Briarcliffe Cottage is located in the village of Lindale just off the A590, It's a great location for visiting the many attractions of the Southern Lake District. The cottage is beautifully presented, with three well sized bedrooms, two of which have en-suites, leaving the main bathroom as a private bathroom for bedroom three. Downstairs the lounge, dining room and kitchen are well equipped. With an attached sun room accessed from the rear there is plenty of room to leave footwear and wet clothing, not something we needed as we had fine weather.”

    • “The property is in a good location to the southern lakes and easy to reach from the M6 and A590. Its situated in Lindale which is a pleasant village with everything you need near by. The house had been decorated and and furnished to a high standard with an en suite for the 2 main bedrooms which we found very useful. We had everything we needed in the property. If returning to this area would use the property again and will certainly recommend it to others.”

    Mr Dyer, Rhyl, May 2015

About the location


Grange-over-Sands 2 miles; Cartmel 3.6 miles; Windermere 12 miles.

The small village of Lindale is situated in the south of the Lake District National Park, just a few short miles from the coastal estuary and the seaside town of Grange-over-Sands. Sitting on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell it has a true 'Lakeland feel' with narrow streets, quaint stone dwellings, two traditional pubs and an 18-hole golf course. Cartmel, with its delicious sticky toffee pudding, famous annual horse race meetings, a 12th century priory, and gourmet restaurants is a ten-minute drive away. The pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange are all neighbours and worthy of a visit. Just a short drive away is Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere, and Hawkshead - which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many. The area is perfect for walking and cycling for people of all abilities, with many Sustrans cycleways and Grizedale Mountain Bike trails nearby. Take a stroll along the promenade at Grange-over-Sands or pull on your walking boots and explore the fells. Set amidst the charm of the southern lakes, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
