    “We had a very enjoyable holiday.”

    The cottage is central to getting to the lakes and surrounding areas of absolutely breathtaking scenery.

    The cottage is central to getting to the lakes and surrounding areas of absolutely breathtaking scenery. We feel the bedroom would benefit from a black out blind as the one that is up is quite see through when the light is on. Also it was a shame that the log burner wasn’t working as that would have been the topping to our holiday cake. Over all a fabulous relaxing holiday we would recommend.

The property

Resting in a perfect position for exploring the many wonders of the Lake District National Park and beyond, Kidsty Cottage is the ultimate choice for your romantic retreat in Cumbria.

A homely cottage resting within the village of Shap, there's so much to explore within the local area and further afield.

Step through your private courtyard and into the property, and kick off your shoes before entering the inviting living/dining room, a lovely spot to settle down in the evenings on the sofa in front of the television when you're not out exploring, the woodburning stove offering a welcoming element to this quaint cottage.

To the rear of the property you can find the well-equipped kitchen, hosting all the essentials for your stay, even including a washing machine, while the dining area back in the front room is where you can enjoy all of your romantic meals.

Prepare for bed with a warming shower in the convenient ground-floor shower room, a modern spot with impressive exposed stone walls offering the perfect place to unwind each evening before taking the staircase to the first floor to find your double bedroom, with plenty of space for all of your personal belongings and accompanying crisp white linens, it's a truly homely spot.

Put on your walking boots and begin your day's adventure within the local village of Shap, home to a Post Office with a village shop, a pub, a selection of shops and even a swimming pool, you can find all you could need just a short stroll from the property.

Venture to the Shap Abbey, resting on the western banks of the River Lowther, here you can expect to find spectacular scenery and views over the Lake District.

Just a short drive can bring you to a variety of Lake District wonders; head to Kendal for a day of golfing, rich history in its museums and castle and a plethora of shopping experiences, or take to the waters of Windermere, with plenty of watersporting opportunities on offer including flyboarding, canoeing and kayaking, waterskiing and more, there's something here for every taste.

Uncover the rich history of Penrith with its imposing 14th century castle, or venture further to find both the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Yorkshire Dales National Park both offering their own unique experiences and landscapes like no other.

For a truly unforgettable holiday, choose Kidsty Cottage as your base for exploring all that Cumbria has to offer.
