The property

Ling Fell Cottage enjoys an idyllic and peaceful elevated location in the Lake District village of Backbarrow.

Set within the wondrous National Park, this semi-detached country cottage provides an ideal homely base for families, couples and friends to return to after each adventure-filled day.

The property benefits from a lovely light conservatory, where you can sit with your morning coffee and appreciate the beautiful back garden.

Reach the cream and black kitchen, well-equipped and complete with a charming breakfast bar seating two people.

Along with a stylish, fully tiled family bathroom, the ground floor occupies a homely and fresh living/dining room, which boasts a stunning woodburning stove and thoughtful finishing touches.

The first floor offers three immaculate, neutrally decorated bedrooms; a king-size, a double and a single room complete this wonderful accommodation in charming style.

The tiered open garden to the back of the property offers you great views with a choice of lovely seating areas whilst the dogs and children can run and play on the lawn.

Backbarrow is a lovely, tranquil village with a shop and a pub, also providing superb access to the Lake District National Park.

The outstanding Bowness-on-Windermere is just 10 miles away and has something to suit every taste including Windermere, the largest natural lake in the country, The World of Beatrix Potter and a selection of restaurants and cafés.

The fascinating market town of Kendal is also worth a visit.

Ling Fell Cottage is a welcoming retreat in a stunning rural location.

West down the A590 is the colourful and friendly market town of Ulverston famous for it's delightfully eclectic mix of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

The cobbled streets of Ulverston come alive all year round with fabulous Festivals such as Another Fine Fest, Lantern Festival, International Classical Music Festival and the Dickensian Festival that transforms Ulverston into a Charles Dickens extravaganza.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1 mile; Bowness-on-Windermere 10 miles.

The small village of Backbarrow sits by the banks of the River Leven and the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The famous Haverthwaite Steam Railway runs close by the village between Haverthwaite and Lakeside. Enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or visit the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District, close to the fringe of Windermere, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to forage further into a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely gorse clad moors.
