  • "A lovely house in a great location."

    It is well equipped and was very cosy. The location is handy for the Lakes, the Dales, Morecambe Bay and lots of local attractions and walks. The garden is fenced. The busy pub next door is under the same ownership. We enjoyed an evening meal and a hearty breakfast on our checkout day. The pub is always busy so it is advisable to book for meals.

  • "A beautiful property with plenty of space for a large family group."

    The views from the property where slightly disappointing, it is next door to a very busy pub/hotel carpark. We had 3 cars to park and it wasn't always easy to find a space near to our holiday cottage.

    The games room was a complete hit for the teenagers and the rooms and spacious and very comfortable. There was everything you could need in the kitchen and all the required appliances for a long stay. We arrived to beautiful cakes left for us were were delicious. The hotel pub next door serves amazing food but prepare yourself if you have a small appetite because the portions are pretty big

  • "We stayed here for 2 nights as a family of six with one baby and one dog for my dads 60th."

    The cottage was immaculate when we walked in. Rob the owner was really helpful if we ever needed anything. The pool table in the games room was a great bonus and kept us entertained at night along with the hot tub. Everything was clean and fresh and we had access to everything we needed including fresh towels, a cot, high chair, iron, hairdryer and everything else. When we arrived we were left with a plate of homemade cakes which was a lovely touch! It’s only an 13 minute drive into Kendall and only around 25 into Windermere. The pub is only next door which is great for a drink or food. Overall an amazing stay and I would recommend this to anyone!

  • "Just returned from a long weekend at Crooklands Cottage - wow, what a beautiful place to call home for four days."

    The pictures on the website do not do it any justice - it is better!! Each of the rooms are spacious and the open plan area downstairs made it easy for all in our party to never be alone. The bedrooms were well appointed and the two ensuites were lovely. The fact there is the hot tub was a bonus, although with our schedule, we only used it the once! We were lucky with the weather, so from getting up each morning, we all spent time just sitting outside with the first brew of the day. All in all, it was a pleasure to stay there and will definitely stay again. Can definitely recommend Crooklands Cottage to others. Also, it's ideally located in the car park of Crooklands Hotel, so handy to go in there for a bite to eat if don't feel like cooking.

    We regularly book cottages in various locations for short breaks, and this is one of the best. The living room is very stylish, the kitchen well stocked, the bedrooms spacious and comfortable, and luxurious underfloor heating in the bathrooms. Could the house do with a 4th shower room? Probably, but we coped!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back another time. Property Owner

    Stunning bedrooms with very comfortable beds and plenty of space. Very clean, very modern and updated. We could tell the owners take a lot of pride in this property. Hot tub is big enough for 6 people easily. Garden is great for children to run and dogs to have a sniff. Gorgeous bathrooms throughout. Spacious and well equipped kitchen and utility. Genuinely felt like home.

  • "Had a lovely week stay at Crooklands Cottage."

    The house was much bigger than anticipated, it was plenty big enough for us all and a dog. The entertainment facilities were excellent and we were never bored on an evening with PlayStation, pool table and hot tub. Lots of places to walk the dog around the area and lots of places to keep children entertained. I highly recommend Lakelands Maze Farm for children, we spent hours here one day and still didn't fully experience everything they had. The pub and hotel just next door was handy to have and food here was really nice. Just a few things that we felt were missing this week, there is no BBQ which I think would have been a lovely addition as the garden area in the sunshine is lovely. As others have also said in their reviews, we also felt there wasn't enough seating in the main room. Overall a lovely stay and all thoroughly enjoyed.

    Spacious, comfortable, modern and a good location to get to Windamere, Falls foot and Ingleton Falls on the doorstep. The property would benefit from a coffee machine, we bought and left a cafetière and a mop to dry the floor after being in the hot tub! Would defiantly recommend. We were a party of 9 and would not hesitate to return to this property.

  • "This property is fantastic."

    Its decorated and furnished to a very high standard, the cleanliness is perfect. The kitchen has all the amenities you need. Location is brilliant, its right next to the pub/hotel but this does not take away from the property being on a site on its own as it seems secluded. There were lovely touches from the owners including a gorgeous cake they had baked and dog bowls for our dogs. The food and service in the pub next door was great and we enjoyed eating there a couple of times. Its not far from Windermere/Bowness and there are lots of lovely walks near by. Highly recommend booking this and we will definitely be rebooking shortly. PS for anyone that is taking dogs, there are ticks in the area so please check your dogs. we did leave a tick remover.

With five bedrooms and open-plan living spaces, the cottage suits a large family or group gathering for contemporary comforts, with the wilds of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales nearby.

Guests have access to the neighbouring hotel car park with sufficient space for five cars, before lugging your bags into Crooklands Cottage.

The ground floor offers plenty of space to catch up with loved ones or take some time to yourself; each room is beautifully finished with fantastic amenities to suit those who prefer high-quality over rustic and traditional.

With plenty of seating to choose from, the smart and well-appointed kitchen/diner features two electric ovens and a hob, microwave and an American-style fridge/freezer to stock up on your favourite foods for your stay.

Keep your holiday gear fresh in the next-door utility with a basin, washing machine and tumble dryer for your convenience.

Gather for a film night in the first sitting room with plush seating and a large Smart TV, whilst the second sitting room offers another Smart TV, Playstation and pool table for a livelier evening.

Completing the ground floor, a cloakroom with basin, heated towel rail and WC is perfect to quickly freshen up before venturing out the door.

Each guest has a delightful space to relax and wake up in a bright and airy setting to start the day; five super-king-size bedrooms lie upstairs, one of which has a snug sitting area set under a skylight and an en-suite shower room with underfloor heating, whilst a second offers woodland views from a Juliet balcony, en-suite shower room with underfloor heating, and a spacious walk-in wardrobe.

The fabulous family bathroom also boasts underfloor heating for added comfort whilst you step under the Monsoon shower head or take a relaxing bubble bath, before wrapping yourself in a towel fresh off the heated towel rail.

Admire this picturesque stone cottage from the enclosed, rear garden where you can dine alfresco on the patio or spread a picnic blanket on the lawn for lunch in the sunshine.

As the night grows cooler, step through the patio doors into the warmth of the sitting room or bring your bathing suits for an evening in the hot tub under the stars.

For your self-catering holiday, Crooklands Cottage is nearby to a garage with a shop for the essentials, whilst just next door a hotel and pub offer delicious meals and well-deserved pints after trekking through the countryside.

The Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales rest either side of Crooklands to experience the best of Northern England's spectacular landscapes for walking, hiking, climbing or cycling.

Nearby towns include the small market town of Milnthorpe with a market square of inviting shops and charming eateries, a great base before exploring Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with scenic trails and plenty of wildlife.

The bustling town of Kendal sits north of Crooklands Cottage with picturesque high streets, traditional pubs and plenty of history and heritage in the ruins of Kendal Castle and Quaker Tapestry Museum.

For stunning lakeside views and plenty of walking tours into the surrounding countryside, journey to the popular Windermere for boat tours across the picture-perfect lake, stop for lunch in a quaint tearoom or climb Orrest Head for sweeping views across breath-taking countryside.

Whether it's to celebrate a special occasion or for quality time with loved ones, choose Crooklands Cottage for your holiday home.
