    Lovely location on a now unnavigable section of the Lancaster to Kendal canal lots of wildlife on your doorstep literaly. (woke up to rabbits on the doorstep several times & Swans & Cygnets at the wharf).Great views from the kitchen and upstairs bedrooms. Great base for exploring the lakes., Very peaceful and no immediate neighbours. Visited for a family holiday with our adult son and daugter and their respective partners plus our 6 month old grandaughter and our dog. Local Butcher in Burton very good. Aldi Booths and Tesco supermarkets a short drive away. Good local walks along the canal tow path. Cottage well equiped and very clean. Only downside was that the washing machine was not working. Very prompt response by the owner via phone & text but problem not fixed before we left which was a bit of a pain when we had a 6 month old and all the attendant washing that brings, plus most of the adults had only packed 3 daysworth of clothes. we particularly appreciated the loosleaf file of lakeland walks in the kitchen very useful plus the maps All things considered realy nice place to stay. We'd recommend it.

The property

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.

About the location

BURTON-IN-KENDAL

Kirkby Lonsdale 7 miles; Kendal 12 miles.

A small, traditional Cumbrian village set in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and the peaceful Forest of Bowland. The village has a Post Office/general store, a butcher and a pub that serves good food. It lies 7 miles from the lovely old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, and 12 miles from Kendal, the gateway to the Lake District. There is easy access to many areas of interest, with the historic city of Lancaster and the seaside resorts of Morecambe and Blackpool all within easy reach. The acclaimed RSPB wildfowl reserve of Leighton Moss is only 4 miles away, while Morecambe Bay is also famous for birdwatching. Other locations well worth a visit are the villages of Silverdale and Arnside (overlooking the beautiful Kent Estuary), Ingleton, Settle and Clapham. Levens Hall (famous topiary) and medieval Sizergh Castle with a beautiful garden are nearby. Good pubs and restaurants are also abound in the area. There is plenty of good walking nearby, and golf, fishing and riding are all available locally.
