A 200-year old detached canalside cottage on the outskirts of Burton-in-Kendal, 7 miles from Kirkby Lonsdale, 12 miles from Kendal, in a secluded, rural and peaceful setting with wonderful views.
Located at historic Burton Wharf almost midway along a 5-mile closed and secluded section of the Lancaster to Kendal Canal, this comfortable and thoughtfully modernised cottage is full of charm and character.
The cottage has a delightful beamed sitting room, a woodburning stove and outstanding views of the surrounding countryside to the Lakeland Fells beyond.
Diverse wildlife can be seen around the canal, and swans and other wildfowl nest beside the wharf, while curlews can often be heard.
The canal towpath on the opposite bank is popular for walking, cycling and exercising dogs.
There is a good dog-friendly pub/restaurant in Burton village a short walk from the property, or guests can enjoy an evening meal on the canalside patio, from which lovely sunsets can frequently be seen.
Lancaster, Morecambe Bay, Silverdale and Arnside are within easy reach, as are Settle, Clapham and Ingleton, Lancaster is 9 miles and Blackpool is just 44 miles away.
A superbly-located property, perfectly placed for visiting the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the Lune Valley.
