  • "We absolutely loved staying here."

    The Owl’s Shack is absolutely PERFECT! Beautiful views, you can hear the water nearby which is so relaxing. Every single detail of the shack has been thought about which made our stay incredibly easy. Usually when we go to places in the uk, we will take lots of utensils etc as most places don’t stock much, including lots and fire lighters etc, but this place literally had EVERYTHING. We didn’t need to take anything for the kitchen as it had it all. The smart TV was excellent and easy to use. The showers we really great and worked easily. We arrived to a lovely hamper it the kitchen including a gorgeous coffee and cake! The fire was also great, with enough logs to last us the full week. The only thing was it says enclosed garden on the site. We brought a dog who can’t be let off the lead. The garden isn’t fully enclosed but this really is the only thing that bothered us but we worked around it and it was fine. I would highly recommend it. And we would love to come back and stay again. It’s such a wonderful place. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

    We had a very nice pamper pack and a welcome note which was very thoughtful and nice of them to do. Everything was on point, and our favourite feature of the house was the open wood fire in the lounge, it was very cozy and beautiful. The layout and decor is carefully designed with love for sure. Perfect for instagram pictures

    Thank you for such lovely comments, we are so glad that you enjoyed the property and all that we had to offer. Property Owner

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.
