About the location

Witherslack

Kendal 9 miles; Windermere 16 miles.

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.

The house was perfect for our family needs, just as we'd hoped. The best house we've stayed in. Can not say enough positive things about it; we loved it. Very friendly gentleman who was very helpful and genuine. We'll definitely be booking again.

Mrs Sait, Preston, February 2014

Town End Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable, quiet, cosy, well equipped and spacious home. The scenery around the cottage is wildly beautiful and there are some lovely local walks. Many lovely places to visit close by, for example a farm shop where you can see the cows being milked while having a scrumptious cream tea or county meal. Stately homes abound, and the local community shop is very friendly and helpful if you need advice. The cottage has many leaflets about the local area if needed. But what made the holiday was the feeling that you were staying in a home, not a holiday cottage. Such a lovely property and beautiful surroundings.

Ms Bates, London, December 2013

Incredible property! The cottage had a very warm and cosy feel. Great décor, and very well maintained.

Mr Anand, London, November 2013

Cottage was beautiful, pristinely clean, with everything practical that you would need for your stay. Beds were comfortable, rooms were warm and drying facilities were great. Plenty of storage space as well for all the wet gear. The local pub was very friendly, did not eat there, but the menu looked good and the beer was great. Again the local shop was very well stocked and had really convenient opening hours.
