    “A small hiccup at the start of the trip, as the owners were not expecting us and the key was not in the key safe.”

    However, this was quickly sorted with a call to the owner. Cottage is spacious, with 3 double bedrooms (two are ensuite), a bathroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, conservatory and cloakroom. Also a small garden and parking for two cars. Facilities were fine, including WiFi. Dishwasher tablets were supplied so we used that every day, but we didn't have any washing powder so we were not able to use that. Grill and oven could do with a thorough clean. There is a small post office two minute walk away, stocking basic food stuffs. For bigger shops you can drive to Grange over Sands (10 minutes away) for Tesco Express or Co-op stores. Cottage is in the southern end of the Lakes, close to the bottom end of Windermere and also not far from Coniston. Bit of a drive to get up to the northern lakes. It provided a comfortable base for our stay.

The property

A fabulous, stone-built, semi-detached cottage, quietly nestling in the traditional Lakeland village of Lindale, on the scenic and largely undiscovered Lakeland Peninsula.

Lovingly renovated in 2007 to provide a superb blend of original character with contemporary style, Briarcliffe Cottage is spacious and stylish throughout, boasting an open fire, two lavish en-suite bathrooms with underfloor heating and a charming summer room leading to an attractive courtyard garden.

There are many pleasant walks from the doorstep, whilst Lindale's quaint, narrow streets are home to traditional dwellings, a shop and welcoming old pubs.

Cartmel, the coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands and mystical Lake Windermere are all well worth a visit.

An idyllic holiday retreat.

About the location

LINDALE

Grange-over-Sands 2 miles; Cartmel 3.6 miles; Windermere 12 miles.

Lindale, a small village situated in the south of The Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just a few miles from Lake Windermere, makes the area a perfect holiday destination. Set amidst the charm of The Southern Lakes, this attractive village, with handy gastropub, The Royal Oak, makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area. Just a few minutes drive brings you to Cartmel, a delightful village to wander around, famed for its delicious sticky toffee pudding, 12th century priory, National Hunt race meetings and gourmet restaurants. You could also visit Grange-over-Sands, a charming seaside Edwardian town. Take a stroll on the promenade and return through the quaint narrow streets with some lovely tea rooms and specialist shops including a bakery, chocolatiers, and award winning butchers. The Lake District has so much to offer, there is sailing on Windermere, cycling in The Grizedale Forest, Go Ape Treetop adventures, Birdwatching at Leighton Moss and The Foulshaw Osprey Experience. There are also stately homes at Holker Hall, Levens Hall and Sizergh Castle and a heritage steam railway which runs from Haverthwaite to Lakeside. The Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Beauty is also a short journey away. But leaving the best till last, walking or touring in the fabulous Lake District, with its fells, lakes and tarns is an absolute must, most of which is just a short drive or walk away.
