  • “The Bungalow was very clean and comfortable and in a nice quiet location.”

    There is Freeview TV and Wi-Fi. The heating system was easy to use. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom, a nice large shower (no bath). There was plenty of clothes storage space in the two bedrooms (main bedroom didn't have a wardrobe but there is one in the single room). The double bed was very comfortable. There is a big shed to store bikes which was useful. There was a bottle of wine and packet of biscuits on arrival which was nice although it would have been useful to have had a ...

    There is Freeview TV and Wi-Fi. The heating system was easy to use. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom, a nice large shower (no bath). There was plenty of clothes storage space in the two bedrooms (main bedroom didn't have a wardrobe but there is one in the single room). The double bed was very comfortable. There is a big shed to store bikes which was useful. There was a bottle of wine and packet of biscuits on arrival which was nice although it would have been useful to have had a bottle of milk as part of the welcome pack as we arrived after the local shop had closed and we travelled up on a hot day so we couldn't bring any with us. Levens is a great location for travelling into the Lakes. It is very convenient for the M6. The local shop is great and the local pub was brilliant. They spoiled the dog thoroughly, so much so, that when we took her for a walk, she took us straight to the pub! The food in the pub was lovely as well, we could easily have eaten there every day. The only niggles were that there was no wire rack in the grill pan so we couldn't grill properly. The extractor fan in the kitchen didn't work very well so we needed to have windows open to get rid of the food smell. There was also very limited storage in the kitchen for food other than the fridge. The was no garden and one of the photos in the listing seemed to show a patio area with table and chairs but this was actually on the driveway. This wouldn't have been an issue if we didn't have a dog but it meant that there was nowhere to let the dog out so we had to take her for a walk rather than let her into a garden.

The property

This well-presented, semi-detached bungalow is situated in the attractive south Lakeland village of Levens.

Situated on the edge of the Lyth Valley with a backdrop of Whitbarrow Scar, close to Milnthorpe Sands and the estuary, this property is in a fantastic location for friends or a small family to explore the area.

The accommodation is light and airy and has a contemporary feel with two lovely bedrooms.

Stretch out on the comfortable corner settee in the sitting room and enjoy a coffee whilst relaxing in front of the modern flame-effect fire.

The kitchen is well-equipped and there is a dining room where the group can gather together with a meal to discuss the next day’s plans.

In Levens you can sample local ales and food at the Hare and Hounds inn on your doorstep or have alfresco refreshments back at the cottage.

There are many attractions close by including Levens Hall with its gardens laid out in the 1690s, world-famous topiary and the first ever ha-ha garden.

You can also walk from this cottage to Sizergh Castle with its beautiful house, gardens, farm shop and café.

Close by on the estuary peninsula are the pretty coastal villages of Arnside and Silverdale.

Both of these are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are prolific for wildlife, especially butterflies.

They have fabulous scenery and lakes and are part of the coastal cycle way.

Also close by is the elegant town of Grange-over-Sands where you can get a train to explore the local west coast.

Just a couple of miles inland from here is the gastro village of Cartmel, home to sticky toffee pudding.

This picturesque historic village also houses a racecourse, a beautiful old priory and lovely pubs and restaurants.

The old market and festival town of Kendal is only a 15 minute drive with its array of amenities, including shops, galleries, museums and strolling along the river Kent.

From here Windermere is also close by with all the Lakeland activities on offer.

This lovely comfortable cottage is ideally situated to explore the beautiful Lakes and surrounding area whatever the time of year.

About the location

LEVENS

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.
