    “We visited this exceptional cottage ...”
    We visited this exceptional cottage last year and didn't want to go anywhere else when looking this year. Perfect in every way. Great location, superb cottage and lovely, friendly hosts. Our son wants to come back every year, forever (and we can't disagree!)

The property

Kendal 4.5 miles.

A superb detached cottage, set on the owner’s working farm next to their small static caravan park, on the outskirts of the Lake District with views across the surrounding rolling countryside.

Appointed to a high standard throughout with cosy underfloor heating, this spacious cottage is sure to appeal to families, couples and friends looking to enjoy time together in the pretty Cumbrian countryside.

Set all on ground floor level, the cottage has two bright and cosy bedrooms with the master complete with its own en-suite shower room.

The sizeable open plan living space has a bespoke fitted kitchen, dining area and a splendid sitting area with a woodburning stove and French doors opening onto the rear patio and garden.

Outside, a flagged area and gravel parking lie to the front, whilst to the rear is a sizeable lawned garden with patio area from where you can enjoy an early morning coffee or settle down with an alfresco meal at the end of a busy day.

The cottage sits in an attractive, rural location enabling guests to enjoy lovely walks right from the front door.

During the lambing and calving season, guests will see the farmer busy tending to their flock, giving a real flavour of this authentic country location.

Nearby Kendal offers visitors shopping, eateries and various attractions including the Brewery Arts Centre, as well as Quaker Tapestry Museum and Abbot Hall Art Gallery.

This is a super base from which to explore neighbouring regions including the old book town of Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the historic town of Appleby in the beautiful Eden Valley or the ever-popular towns of Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside in the heart of Lakeland.

This wonderful Lake District cottage is a place to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

About the location

KENDAL

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.
