  • "Great place for a getaway in the lake district, We had a wonderful time staying at the property."

    Cosy, warm and modern. Only two things to note. - One of the windows in the upstairs rooms was broken and would not close, which did make the room quite cold during the night. - The property description says there is a dishwasher installed at the property? This was either very well hidden or there is not one installed. Overall, a great stay was had by all and we would come again.

The property

Settled in the bustling town of Kendal, on the doorstep of the gorgeous Lake District National Park is this three-bedroom, detached cottage, Holly Rigg.

Set over the ground floor and lower ground floor and built into the hillside, Holly Rigg enjoys a wonderfully elevated position, with views over the town and surrounding hills.

Admire the stunning views from the full-length windows in the sitting room from the rocking chair, or settle on one of the sofas beside the woodburning stove to watch some TV at the end of a busy day.

The large kitchen/diner is an excellent social space, with a dining table and chairs catering to all six guests, and a shaker-style fitted kitchen home to all the appliances you need to rustle up delicious meals, along with a utility room housing the washing machine and tumble dryer.

The ground floor is also home to two king-size bedrooms, both beautifully decorated with plenty of storage, with one boasting a Juliet balcony, perfect for admiring the morning sun over the town, with the rooms served by the shared bathroom.

Head down the stairs to the lower ground floor level to find the final bedroom, an elegant double, and a shower room adorned with Victorian and subway tiling.

Spend time out in the garden, with two patio areas to relax in, both with ample furniture for alfresco dining and unwinding with a glass of wine in the evening sun, along with a pretty summerhouse too.

The town of Kendal, known as the southern gateway to the Lakes, is a terrific base for your adventures in Cumbria's beloved national park.

Explore the town, settled around the River Kent, visiting the local attractions of Kendal Castle, Quaker Tapestry Museum, and the many restaurants, pubs and shops lining the quaint streets.

Plenty rests in the surrounding area too, including Sizergh Castle, a 14th century bulwark now home to Elizabethan carvings, furniture and landscaped gardens, great for an interesting day out.

Venture over to England's largest body of water, Lake Winderemere, for all manner of fun; try watersports like paddle-boarding, kayaking and canoeing, hire a boat to sail along at your own pace, enjoy a relaxing boat cruise, or simply use the Windermere ferries as a convenience way to get around whilst taking in the fabulous scenery.

The town of Bowness-on-Windermere is home to popular attraction The World of Beatrix Potter, whilst on the other side of the lake you can find the National Trust's Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's former home which now displays original works of the beloved children's author and illustrator.

Walkers can look forward to the many challenging routes you can find in this rambler's paradise, with peaks like Whitbarrow, Cunswick Scar, Gummer's How and Bran Fell all well worth the hike, affording some breath-taking views and scenery.

Holly Rigg is the perfect host for your next Lakes adventure with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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.
