The property

A stylishly appointed cottage/apartment, themed on a lake-house, with exposed oak beams and dark wood flooring.

This unique architect-designed luxury cottage lies at the foot of the Kentmere valley and is set in the secluded informal three-acre gardens of Mirefoot, complete with arboretum and wildlife pond, with sublime relaxation and escapism on the doorstep of Windermere.

With a stunning newly-built private spa and pool facility a few yards from your doorstep, for the exclusive use of guests of Mirefoot cottages., along with steam room / sauna, gym and Treatment Rooms.

Enter through the glass atrium into a spacious open plan living/dining area with state-of-the-art kitchen.

Exposed beams and wood-burning stove, and a large picture window and window seat with stunning views.

French doors open onto a private patio.

Upstairs, a twin/double bedroom with en-suite shower room, and a double bedroom with en-suite free standing bath and shower, and floor to ceiling windows to admire the Lakeland views from your bed.

Mirefoot is at the foot of Kentmere Valley approached by a maze of picturesque lanes, one of the Lake District's most beautiful quiet areas, with Lake Windermere and the village only 15 minutes away and Kendal in the other direction.

The nearest village is Staveley, a real Lakeland community, is alive with artisan crafts, shops and galleries, and is an absolute treat for foodies – if you love bakeries, bikes, beer and banter, you’ll love Staveley Mill Yard.

Near the river is the perfect Lake District pub: the Eagle & Child - highly-regarded in the area and a perfect choice for a bar meal out.

A 20 minute walk from Mirefoot is the quirky Handsome micro-brewery in Bowston overlooking the river Kent.

The Gateway Inn and the Plumgarths Farm Shop and cafe are a short distance away.

For provisions & groceries, head into Windermere, for our local Booths supermarket and many other useful shops.

Or Kendal has a selection of 4 of the major supermarkets.

From Staveley, the A591 is your main route into the heart of the Lakes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. 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. Kendal itself 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, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
