    Mr Parker

    “The property proved an excellent location for a Christmas break.”

    The owners live in an adjacent property and were extremely welcoming and supportive without being in any way intrusive. Set in a quiet valley on the Dalesway, there is a feeling of remoteness and yet J37 of the M6 is only 10 or so mins away, giving easy access to the eastern and southern Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Strongly recommended.

The property

Kendal 5 miles.

A delightful detached, stone-built cottage located on the Lakeland Fells, in the tiny hamlet of Lambrigg, just five miles from Kendal.

Nestling within the original home farm of Moresdale Hall Estate, this Kendal cottage was once a farmworker's cottage and stable buildings and sits within eight acres of the owners' grounds.

This Kendal cottage has an upside down accommodation layout, with the living area on the first floor featuring a sitting room with a warm and cosy woodburning stove, a farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area, and an adjoining main bedroom with en-suite and patio doors, which provide access to the lawned garden and views of the Howgill Fells.

The ground floor consists of an entrance hall, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Full of character and charm throughout, the comfy accommodation, exposed stone walls and original roof beams all go together to provide guests with an ideal holiday home.

The woodland area surrounding this Kendal cottage supports a wide variety of birds, animals and plants, including deer and badgers.

There are many walks in the area and a favourite is the ascent of Lambrigg Fell via Moresdale Tarn to a height of just over 1000 feet above sea level, which offers panoramic views of the Lake District Mountains, the Pennines and Morecambe Bay.

The Dalesway long distance footpath runs through the grounds and this can be followed in either direction to the Lune Valley or towards the terminus at Windermere.

For those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy a true Lakeland holiday, then this Kendal cottage is the one for you.

About the location

KENDAL

Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes.

Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town.

Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate.

Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.

Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond.

With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break..
