    “We have stayed here many times now, it's a fine place to stay.”

The cottage

Built in 1775 and formerly the village school, this charming cottage adjoins the owner's home and is situated in Crooklands, close to the Westmorland Showground and the village of Endmoor.

Ideally located mid-way between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, this semi-detached Crooklands cottage has two double bedrooms, including a ground floor room with an en-suite shower room, plus there is also a family bathroom on the ground floor.

The sitting room with dining area at this Cumbria cottage is stylish and comfortable, whilst outside there is a pretty, private 'secret' garden and patio, which provides the perfect place for alfresco dining.

The Lancaster Canal is just a short walk away and provides a fascinating insight to a host of resident wildlife, flora and fauna.

A pub/hotel serving good traditional Cumbrian food is a four minute walk from your welcoming Crooklands cottage, a real bonus after a day exploring the beautiful Lake Windemere which is just a twenty minute drive away, or after visiting the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, just seven miles along the road.

The area is rich in natural history with Farleton Knott, a huge expanse of limestone crags and pavements close by, plus for a perfect day out, come rain or shine, the caves at White Scar, Ingleton are always popular, and Leighton Moss Nature Reserve at Silverdale, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has been featured on BBC Autumnwatch.

This cosy Cumbrian cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy all this area has to offer at any time of the year.
