  • "A good base for what we wanted, the damp problem in the kitchen does need addressing as the noise of the dehumidifier is annoying and ultimately won’t solve the problem."

    The kids loved the comic selection and games to play with and it was very cosy and homely with the log burner lit.

  • "We were very disappointed with the yard at the rear of property."

    Unable to sit out in the sun. The flooring was very dirty. I brushed the leaves etc without success. I was going to use water on it to give it a scrub but was not sure if water would drain away. On the whole we were very disappointed.

  • "Lovely place and we had a good time."

    The only thing I struggle with was that I could not find any matches and it was a bit cold. But I borrowed some off the neighbour and then it was really toasty. The perils of no one smoking these days!! But generally was perfect!

  • "Nice cottage in rural Crook with added bonus of The Sun Inn a minute walk from the cottage, which serves amazing food."

    Main supermarkets are 6 miles away in Kendal. Not really far to drive to visit all the Lake District has to offer. Scenery is totally stunning!

  • "During our stay the weather was poor, but the cottage with a good supply of books, CDs, DVDs and jigsaws provided a cozy haven from the storm!"

    The location is handy for lots of interesting places around Lake Windermere and the close proximity of the Sun Inn with its good food was an added bonus.

The pretty hamlet of Crook is situated in beautiful Lakeland countryside and offers excellent access to the heart of the Lake District National Park. There are two hotels/pubs in Crook itself and a wide variety of super walks on the surrounding fells. Less than six miles from Lake Windermere - England's longest lake - and a similar distance from all of the amenities of Kendal, Cumbria's historic market town. The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere hold enduring appeal for visitors to the Lake District National Park, with each providing a range of nearby attractions, amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. A variety of boat trips and boat hire are available from Windermere Lake Cruises in Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside (at the southern end of the lake where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated). The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and the Old Laundry theatre are 1.5 miles away. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is a 30-minute walk to enjoy the spectacular panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike
