  • “Excellent! We booked Well Cottage for a week because we were going to a family wedding mid-week near Windermere.”

    Perfect choice, the cottage was hidden away in a small courtyard shared with one other cottage.

    Perfect choice, the cottage was hidden away in a small courtyard shared with one other cottage. It was quiet, very clean and comfortable, everything we needed. The pub was 2 minutes walk away. The location ideal for walking, cycling or getting in the car and going to the Lakes. We visited the Motor Museum, Steam Train Journey, Lake Cruises and the local Stately Homes and Castle, all great. I can recommend Levens Hall, the gardens are superb! As you can probably tell, we really enjoyed it!

The property

Set in a peaceful location, in the traditional village of Levens, and with a pleasant country pub on the doorstep, is Well Cottage.

Tucked away on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, you can use this delightful little base to explore all the region has to offer.

Park your car on the gravel opposite and step inside to find an open-plan living room, brought together with cosy seating and modern fixtures assisting your stay.

Cosy together for a film, or play a board game at the dining table after dinner.

Upstairs, a set of nicely decorated bedrooms accompany the family bathroom.

The double bedroom is light and airy, with plenty of storage space and overlooks the trees at front.

Next, the single bedroom is perfect for those travelling with a child.

Arrive to a small courtyard at the rear of the property, accessed via glass doors from the single room.

This soothing spot allows you to enjoy a drink outside, or the front patio is equally as inviting.

Levens is ideally placed for touring the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, and boasts excellent views of the southern fells across the Lyth Valley and the River Kent.

Stroll to the local shop to pick up a loaf of bread, and stop off at the pub on the way back for a refreshing pint!

Beautiful walks take you through glorious wildlife reserves.

Kendal offers museums, shops and eateries, as well as Kendal Castle, a 12th century medieval fortress atop a glacial drumlin.

Take a trip out to Lake Windermere for boat rides and further walking and cycling.

This is an ideal getaway for a quality break in Cumbria.

About the location


Kendal 5 miles; Windermere 16 miles.

Levens is a small traditional Cumbrian village set on a high promontory in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The village has a lovely old church, general store/newsagent and a pub. With excellent views of the southern fells across the Lyth Valley and the River Kent which flows below the village, Levens consists of a huddle of fine, stone-built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. 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. Nearby Kendal 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, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Levens provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
