The property

With its peaceful rural location in the Lyth Valley, this traditional Lakeland cottage is charm itself.

The Hare & Hounds is less than a minute from the front door and the famous Mason’s Arms just up the road in Bowland Bridge.

Both of these hostelries are child-friendly and known for their excellent food and local ales.

A village shop stocks everyday essentials, and with Bowness not far away, there are plenty of shops and cafés to enjoy.

Smithy Cottage, with its large garden, is picture perfect.

A river runs close by and there is ample parking for up to three cars.

Through the front door of this welcoming property, guests will step into the lovely sitting room with large wood burning stove and relaxing sofas.

The perfect place to unwind after a day in the fresh air.

The cottage has a separate dining area and extremely well-equipped kitchen.

Throughout the property picture windows frame delightful views and allow the sunshine to flood in. The two double bedrooms are delightful, and the single room a generous size.

A modern family bathroom has a shower over the bath and there is a second wc.

The garden is at the rear of the property and has seating provided to ensure guests make the most of the country air.

A wonderful place to read, admire the views or enjoy an aperitif. From here guests can stroll to the lake and watch the steamers glide by.

A quiet place for families with young children; somewhere to explore, enjoy the wildlife and get back to nature.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Windermere 7 miles; Kendal 8.5 miles; Cartmel 10.5 miles.

Set in the beautiful Lyth Valley, the tiny hamlet of Bowland Bridge is a hidden gem, with a small scattering of houses and two renowned pubs surrounded by beautiful meadows, woods and Lakeland fells. At the heart of the Lyth Valley are the villages of Bowland Bridge, Crosthwaite and Underbarrow, all of which have roads leading to Kendal, a market town situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a short drive and boasts a number of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst its twin town Bowness offers boat trips to Ambleside and Lakeside, where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated. Within easy reach are Langdale, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Sawrey, Grasmere, Coniston Water and Grizedale Forest Park, plus the town of Cartmel is a short drive away and has a Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant and a shop that sells the famous sticky toffee pudding. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside, visit The National Hunt Racecourse, Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition, Lakeland Motor Museum and Holker Hall with its spectacular gardens, all of which are close by. A superb hidden valley away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s most popular attractions, yet all are within reach.
