The property

A pretty, stone-built, 300-year old, semi-detached cottage, located in a quiet backwater of the Lakeland village of Levens, just five miles from Kendal.

Boasting lovely views across the Lyth Valley and Whitbarrow Scar, this Levens cottage provides ideal Lakeland accommodation.

Warm and welcoming, it features a comfortable sitting room with cosy woodburner and old beams, an adjoining dining area, a well-equipped kitchen and two lovely bedrooms which all combine to provide perfect Lake District accommodation.

Outside, this Levens cottage offers a spacious, raised garden area ideal for dining alfresco and watching the sun go down over the southern Lakeland Fells.

This Levens cottage is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District Peninsula.

The lovely old market town of Kendal is a short drive away, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit.

In the other direction, Kirkby Lonsdale has numerous eating places and individual shops.

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.
