  • "A brilliant little cottage to stay for the week."

    A great base for exploring the Lake District and so dog friendly. Astrid loved the treats she was left and the many many new dog walks. Janet is the best host and I can’t fault her, helpful before during and after the holiday looking forward to staying at West View again!

    Thanks Jesse hopefully we will get to meet when you come back! Property Owner

  • "I definitely recommend West View."

    Recently refurbished to a high standard, the cottage is very clean and comfortable and well maintained. The host provides an excellent welcome pack and is approachable and easily contacted if needed. Our stay was for 2 weeks for 2 adults (and a dog), with one of us working remotely whilst the other attended a course; the cottage was perfect for our requirements. The garden is very well thought-out, being safe and secure for dogs - we enjoyed evenings watching the sunset from the terrace. The cottage is well placed for dog walks and exploring this area of the Lakes - Ambleside was an easy drive away. I'd recommend the local village shop (a short car drive away), as well as Booths (further away), and Arnside chippy! We hope to return to the area and to West View.

    Thanks Adèle. Much appreciated! Property Owner

    Very clean and comfortable - everything you could want from a holiday cottage. All communications with hosts were very prompt and extremely friendly. Certainly would recommend West View and would like to return in the future.

  • "We had a wonderful stay here, the quality of the cottage is one of the best we've ever stayed in, couldn't fault it."

    The cottage is perfectly located for trips to the lakes and is equipped with everything you might need for your stay. Janet is a wonderful, thoughtful host who has thought of everything. We massively appreciated all of the little touches throughout the house - it would not be the same without her care and hard work. We will stay here again if we come back up. Thank you!

    Thanks Katy. I’m enjoying trying to exceed my guests expectations! Property Owner

  • "This has to be our favourite cottage that we have stayed in on our many holidays with our 2 dogs."

    It was beautifully presented and had everything you could wish for to make for a comfortable and lovely stay. Janet was on call to give advice and had left so many delicious treats for us and our girls. The village was welcoming and lots of interesting people met on our daily doggy walks and so many lovely villages to enjoy within easy reach. We would have no hesitation in booking West View, whenever we are back in Cumbria. Sad to leave bur lots of memories to treasure. Thank you!

    Wow what great feedback! Thanks Irene. Property Owner

    The property was clean and comfortable and had recently been modernised. Everything we needed was provided but a clothes airer would have been useful. All in all we had a great holiday staying at West View.

    Lovely welcome pack with some treats for our cocker spaniel. The garden is lovely. This is not your usual rental property, the quality is high and Janet the owner is an excellent host. Really was a home from home. Will definitely return if in the area.

  • "We had a great stay at West View."

    The property was absolutely beautiful. It was all decorated to a really high standard. The garden was a real sun trap to relax in after returning from a day out. We had great communication with the owner before we arrived and was available if any problems occurred during our stay. It was in a great location to explore the South Lakes, which was a new area for us and would definitely go back.

    Glad you have enjoyed our lovely area Nicola! Property Owner

    The cottage is incredibly comfortable and beautifully appointed; it is a testament to Janet & Adrian. The welcome pack was lovely and Sox, our Greyhound, loved the extras that were left for him.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at West View."

    On our arrival it was so welcoming and all our doggy needs were catered for. The welcome pack was lovely. We were able to sit in the garden and enjoy the View. The only downside were the steps up to the garden but we were made aware of the steep steps and were prepared. The cottage is in a lovely friendly village and we found a great walk behind the church.

  • "If I had one word to describe this property it would be WOW!"

    The cottage was immaculate, hats off to the family that own the property as they have kept it traditional but with modern features. The cottage was perfect and had everything you could possibly need. I really liked the guest book and reading other visitors messages and they loved West View as much as we did! We don’t have a pet but the property is dog friendly and had all the things you need to accommodate a furry friend. The garden is gorgeous we didn’t get the chance to enjoy it as we had some rain , but this gives an excuse to comeback. The location of the property is great, all the main spots to visit in the Lakes is less than a 30 min drive. If you didn’t fancy driving out there are lots of places/walking trails right on the door step. The owners have provided a booklet with leaflets you need to operate the equipment in the property but I especially liked the property history and background of the family that own the cottage which I thought was a lovely touch. The owners have also provided a rack of leaflets of food outlets, local activities, walks and areas of interest which was great and we made use of. The owner Janet before we arrived contacted myself directly via SMS, which I thought was really helpful as then I had a number I could contact if I need to during our stay. I couldn’t recommend this property enough ! It was just perfect and we look forward to coming back!

    Thank you Laura. Sorry we didn’t meet this time but if you return I will be sure to pop up and say hi! Property Owner

  • "I can not recommend West View highly enough."

    It is a lovely cottage in a quite village but close to Windermere, Kenilworth, G.O. Sands etc. The cottage had every thing you needed for a stress free relaxing stay, from comfortable beds to a log burner for those cosy nights in.The garden was a sun trap and safe for our dogs too. Our pets were made just as welcome as ourselves. The owners were a very friendly and welcoming couple who you could call on if needed .A truly top class cottage. We will be booking again.

  • "The house was incredible!"

    So cozy and well equipped with lots of blankets. The heating was nice and easy to use as well as the other appliances which made life easy. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable with lots of wardrobe space in the main room. The garden was lovely on a hot morning, the view was great! There was a bus stop right outside the cottage that goes into kendal town centre, which made a very nice day out. There is also so many walking and hiking spots to chose from around, Heversham head was the best it had incredible views just beware of the cows! Overall an amazing stay, just what we needed for a long lazy weekend.

This semi-detached cottage sits in the village of Leasgill, just outside the Lake District National Park.

Suited to a family of four and two dogs, West View is a great place to call home while exploring Cumbria, including Arnside and Silverdale AONB and the Lake District.

The kitchen/diner is set out in a contemporary style and houses a great range of appliances, whilst the utility room houses a handy washing machine.

Carry the conversation into the lounge where you can get the woodburner roaring for a homely feel, while you snuggle up on the sofa and choose a film on the Smart TV.

West View is also hold a Sykes Perfect 10 Certificate for consistant 100% reviews between July and September 2023.

Whisk away upstairs and choose between two neat bedrooms; the master houses a king-size bed with Smart TV, whilst the twin room benefits from zip/link beds so it can be a king-size on request, with ample storage and character features throughout.

Prepare for the day with a rinse in the shower room before stepping outside and heading up to the terraced garden, complete with furniture set and a lovely seating area where you can relax and take in the scenary.

Not far from the property is a playground, and once a month the community hold a pop-up pub at the village hall.

Head to the market town of Milnthorpe, bursting with history due to its medieval roots, and wander its narrow lanes and historic buildings, housing a great selection of shops and eateries to sample.

Wander along the River Bela towards Beetham or head north and follow the River Kent to Levens Hall, a fantastic Elizabethan home set in stunning gardens, before heading to the fortress of Sizergh Castle slightly further north.

For something different, meet the exotic animals at Lakeland Wildlife Oasis or enjoy a spot of birdwatching at RSPB Leighton Moss.

The attractions of Kendal are easily accessible, including a host of independent shops, cafés and tea rooms where you can enjoy a coffee before touring the fascinating Kendal Museum.

Make the most of this Cumbria location with a stay at West View.

About the location


Arnside 3 miles; Silverdale 6 miles; Kendal 7 miles.

Milnthorpe, once an important medieval market town, is located in the South Lakes between Kendal and Carnforth, just a few miles from the seaside village of Arnside. Reminders of the town's history can still be found today amongst the narrow lanes and historic buildings, which speak of a time when a coach and four was more common than a four-wheel drive. Set in lovely rolling countryside, the area has much to offer, with the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis offering a tropical hall and butterfly house. Dallam Tower and Levens Hall (historic and beautiful stately homes with their deer parks, topiary and ornamental gardens) provide a great day out for visitors. Leighton Hall, Sizergh Castle, the Great Lakes Aquarium, Windermere and Grizedale Forest are also all within easy reach and well worth a visit. From stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks to beaches and scenic coastal paths, there really is something for everyone.

Please note the property can not accommodate change over on a Sunday
