    “I can't think of anything not to like about this property.”

    It was warm, homely, comfortable, well equipped and more spacious than the pictures indicate. Lindale is a quiet, peaceful little village with one post office (which will be closed by the time you arrive on Saturday and not open again until Monday) and one pub (open Thursday-Sunday). If you like to self cater, the kitchen is well equipped and the separate dining room made us feel like we were eating out! You will need a car - we typically travelled 30 - 60 minutes to go the touristy places ...

    It was warm, homely, comfortable, well equipped and more spacious than the pictures indicate. Lindale is a quiet, peaceful little village with one post office (which will be closed by the time you arrive on Saturday and not open again until Monday) and one pub (open Thursday-Sunday). If you like to self cater, the kitchen is well equipped and the separate dining room made us feel like we were eating out! You will need a car - we typically travelled 30 - 60 minutes to go the touristy places around the Lakes, but you can also walk locally and I would definitely recommend nearby Cartmel - very picturesque with some nice places to eat. I would recommend making bookings for any evening meals. We had a nice meal at "The Pheasant" Allithwaite, a short drive away. We went in October, so not warm enough to sit out, but the courtyard garden looked a perfect place to sit. As we went as two couples, it was great that we both had en suites, and an additional family bathroom with bath and a downstairs toilet. Plenty of space in the "garden room" for hanging coats and leaving boots. Thank you to our hosts and Sykes for a great holiday.

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.
