The property

Owl Cottage sits in a cosy mid-terrace position, right in the heart of the traditional Cumbrian village of Holme.

With the local amenities within a stone's throw of this homely cottage, it is an ideal base for exploring the rural wonders of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland and the stunning Morecambe Bay.

The ground floor of this hideaway boasts an open-plan layout, firstly greeting you into a welcoming sitting area with snug sofas, a Smart TV and a warming coal-effect fire.

Next, wander through into the kitchen and dining area, a space well-equipped with modern fittings as well as a charming dining table to sit around at mealtimes.

A staircase leads you to the first floor, where you will find a delightful double bedroom overlooking this charming village, as well as a well-presented single bedroom for an extra guest.

The accommodation concludes stylishly with a stunning family shower room featuring a fabulous walk-in shower, so you can get ready for your day with a touch of class.

Sunny days are a true delight at Owl Cottage; a long garden, typical of a terraced cottage, boasts a fabulous patio with a parasol and a BBQ, along with an extensive garden bursting with vibrant flora.

A few short yards from your doorstep lead you to Holme's wonderful food pub and a handy convenience store for your daily essentials.

As well as being a lovely base for a relaxing getaway, this is also a perfectly central location for touring some of northern England's most spectacular countryside, as well as Morecambe Bay, should a day at the beach take your fancy.

Market towns also abound in the area, with both Kirkby Lonsdale and Kendal located within ten miles of the cottage.

Come and stay at this splendid cottage for a well-deserved break in Cumbria.

About the location


Kirkby Lonsdale 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

Holme is a small traditional Cumbrian village set in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and the peaceful Forest of Bowland. The village has a Post Office/newsagent, a general store and a pub that serves good food. Holme lies 8 miles from the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, and 10 miles from Kendal, the gateway to the Lake District. Access to all amenities and tourist areas is good - the historic city of Lancaster, and the seaside resorts of Morecambe and Blackpool are all within easy reach. The acclaimed RSPB wildfowl reserve of Leighton Moss is only 5 miles away, while Morecambe Bay is also famous for birdwatching. Other locations well worth a visit are the villages of Silverdale and Arnside (overlooking the beautiful Kent Estuary), Ingleton, Settle and Clapham. Levens Hall (famous topiary) and medieval Sizergh Castle with its beautiful garden are nearby. Good pubs and restaurants abound in the area. There is plenty of good walking, and golf, fishing and riding are all available locally.
