  • “The photographs of the property do not do it justice, the house is far larger than the images suggest, the local residents are very friendly and welcoming.”

The property

Sitting amidst calming views of encompassing countryside is Anneside, a detached stone-built holiday home on a peaceful, private estate near the lovely village of Cowan Bridge.

This large dwelling is perfect for a group gathering, with plenty to keep everyone entertained during a weekend of celebration.

Be welcomed as you enter the contemporary interior, taking off your coats and getting snuggled up for a relaxing evening inside; head into the bespoke open plan kitchen which boasts crisp granite worktops and all the amenities needed for the chef of the group to cook up a storm during your stay.

Meals can be enjoyed from the dining table, the perfect sociable spot to pass around a bottle of wine as you catch-up over a fun-filled day in the Dales, the adults can enjoy more of the evening here as the kids head off to their own private escape in the games room which is equipped with TV, games console, football table, piano and a good supply of board games.

Warm up on a frosty winter evening in the sitting room, letting the woodburning stove create a snug ambiance as you settle down for a movie night in front of the TV.

Also on this floor is a study that features a double bedroom where the bed is hidden and pulled down from the wardrobe when you're ready for rest, with a handy shower room found behind, great for guests with mobility issues.

Sip on a refreshing beverage as you unwind on a sunny day outside, enjoying the privacy of this secluded area in your own enclosed garden, offering peaceful views in an idyllic setting.

Make your way up to the first floor and choose between one of five bedrooms here, consisting of a lavish super-king-size with its own en-suite freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower, a second super-king-size room which can be converted into singles, a twin, a double and a bunk room, all decorated to a high standard and offering differing views of the surrounding country.

Those without an en-suite can prepare for an exciting day ahead in one of the two bathrooms on this floor, deciding between a sleepy evening bath or a brisk morning shower!

The second floor houses a beautiful master bedroom, offering ample amount of space, accompanied by a super-king-size bed with a TV resting in front, and a luxurious en-suite walk-in shower with a Velux skylight window overlooking verdant fields.

Last but definitely not least is the gym room on this floor, providing various gym equipment so you can keep up with your exercise whilst indulging in sweet treats during your trip.

Cowan Bridge is right on the property's doorstep, just a short walk along a private footpath and driveway, a quaint village where you can stroll over to the local shop and grab your self-catering essentials before heading into the adjoining tearoom for a coffee and a cake.

Venture over to Kirkby Lonsdale for an even wider selection of excellent shopping, a supermarket, welcoming pubs, and a host of eateries to choose from, taking a leisurely wander through the churchyard and over to Ruskin's View to find exceptional scenery of Underley Hall and the Lune Valley.

Visit the famous Devil's Bridge, boasting three unique arches over the River Lune, with lovely areas to enjoy an afternoon picnic at this historic attraction, steeped in tales of folklore.

Ingleton is a great day out for all the family, home to the mesmerising Ingleton Waterfalls Trail with sparkling water features and enchanting woodland paths, as well as challenging cycling routes, hidden caves and traditional delicacies.

Explore adventure as you delve deep into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a nature-filled setting with amazing mountain hikes, picturesque views and fabulous villages, whilst the Lake District National Park boundry is just three miles away where even more fun with watersports and Lakeland activities.

Enjoy a refreshing break with your loved ones at Anneside.

About the location


Kirkby Lonsdale 2 miles; Kendal 13 miles.

A small traditional village set in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and the peaceful Forest of Bowland. A small village with a tearoom/general store, it sits just two miles from the lovely old market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, and just five miles from Ingleton and the famous Three Peaks. The nearby attractive market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, mid way between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year.
