  • "Ideal property for a family get together, (we had three couples and four young children)."

    The kitchen is large and well equipped (even had wine fridge) the chef we employed for our celebration meal was very pleased with it. The space between the bedrooms and the social areas meant that the children weren’t disturbed by the adults during the evening. The living room and bedrooms are all comfortable and pleasantly furnished. Excellent showers/en-suite/bathroom facilities too. The building is centrally heated and has a wood burning stove (wood provided) we found it a little too warm at times with confusing temperature controls. The Gatehouse is in a quiet location but only a few minutes drive from the M6. Kendal is 10 minutes away and Windermere 20 minutes away. The only problems that we encountered was a complete lack of side plates and any oven dishes for baking in, a lack of space for rubbish and recycling, a leak in the bathroom radiator and the lingering smell of smoking in the entrance porch where previous occupants have unfortunately smoked.

  • "Very nice cottage with exceptional facilities."

    Good sized bedrooms and a cozy living space. Had a really great time. Cottage is located close to Motoway link yet feels secluded.

About the location


Kendal 5 miles; Windermere 16 miles.

Levens is a small traditional Cumbrian village set on a high promontory in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The village has a lovely old church, general store/newsagent and a pub. With excellent views of the southern fells across the Lyth Valley and the River Kent which flows below the village, Levens consists of a huddle of fine, stone-built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. 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. Nearby Kendal 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, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Levens provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
