    The level of cleanliness was exceptional! The owners were friendly and very knowledgeable about the local area. The only suggestion is that a bedside lamp would have been useful in the single bedroom.

    Thank you Gillian for this lovely feedback. Glad you had a super holiday and we hope to see you again. I will definitely look at getting a bedside lamp. (The clock is meant to act as a lamp but I need to check how it works). Property Owner

  • "The cottage is beautiful; modern, clean and well-equipped for all holiday needs."

    Ian and Nicky are very friendly and welcoming - perfect hosts.Views all around are as you would expect for this part of the world - glorious. The only reservation to stop us giving it a 10 is the lack of any sort of shop etc in Lindale itself, which means a trip into Grange for any provisions. However, this certainly wouldn't stop us making a return visit and there is a lovely pub. Thank you Nicky/Ian for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cottage.

    Thank you so much for this review Michael, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we do hope to see you again. Yes, the loss of our shop was such a shame, nearest emergency provisions being down the by-pass at the Petrol station or down two miles away in Grange (or visitors can always try our back door for a borrow of milk etc - we don't mind at all). Pleased the pub looked after you well too. See you again I do hope. Property Owner

  • "Pointless to repeat the other very positive reviews (as they accord with our experience) which persuaded us decide to book this cottage."

    Probably the cleanest and best equipped in which we have stayed. Lindale being south of the central mountainous area means it often misses the rain and we had a completely sunny week. HIghlight for us was nearby Levens Hall and gardens with its famous topiary, and can recommend Rogan & Co for their Michelin one star three course dinner at £79 but book in advance. Peter

    Thank you Peter for this lovely review. We are glad you had a nice stay and that you enjoyed Rogan & Co: many visitors book to stay with us so they can enjoy the restaurants in Cartmel. Thanks for the lovely comments about the cottage; we work hard at making it a good offer for customers so all these good reviews are a reward for us. Hope to see you both again. Property Owner

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped from very comfy beds to every appliance you would ever need in the kitchen.Lindale is a delightful little village with so much to do within 30mins drive. On the road parking was never a problem and we were allowed to use the drive to unload on arrival. This part of the Lake District is very quiet and peaceful and was just what we were hoping for. Our two most favourite walks were within 20 mins drive - a walk on the Kent estuary at Arnside and a walk on top of Whitbarrow Scar. We hope to return. Thanks Nicky and Ian

  • "This cottage is absolutely amazing and is like a little home from home."

    Everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District. Lots of information provided and Nicky and Ian are the perfect hosts on hand to help if you need them. Couldn’t fault the cottage I could happily live there but unfortunately, there’s no garden available but great that it’s not essential for a holiday home as you’re busy exploring. Lovely quiet little village with The Royal Oak Pub just a short walk away with lovely Sunday dinner. Try the steam train from Haversmith to Lakeside Station and then you can take a boat ride from the Lakeside and back we’ll try the boat next time. Visit Levens Hall and Grange over Sands too where there’s a Tesco and Coop. Plenty more places to visit so we’re definitely going to return. The weather was good to us too so what more could you ask. Definitely recommend and we have to all our friends

  • "Mount Pleasant is a lovely cosy cottage and large enough for 3 adults."

    The central heating was simple to use and quickly warmed the property. Always a good test for a cottage is the shower, we were not disappointed, it was excellent. The kitchen was well equipped with everything one could need. The beds were comfortable with nice quality bedding. There were books to read (I read The Salt Path - highly recommended) and lots of OS maps plus leaflets for places to visit. There is no parking by the cottage but plenty of spaces further up the lane so that wasn’t a problem. The lane is very quiet apart from the Primary School (below the cottage) drop off and pick up times. Grange over Sands is very close with food shops, bakery and coffee shops. Recommend a walk along the promenade there and a visit to Tom & Abi’s plant nursery in the car park.

    Thanks Vivien for this lovely review, and we are so pleased you enjoyed staying in the cottage and glad you read The Salt Path - a very popular book with all my walking pals. And glad you enjoyed meeting Damsel the Fell Pony, she is becoming quite an attraction here! Nicky and Ian Property Owner

    The hosts were lovely and had thought of everything - so many nice touches to make it a lovely temporary home - that's how it felt. Love the area as well, far enough away from the crowds in the Lakes themselves, but close enough for day trips there - but also in the other direction into the Barrow Peninsular. I can't recommend it enough!

    I worried about the parking but there was always a space and the road is very wide and very quiet except when the full size bin lorry drives by. A welcome gift from the owners included bread, milk, biscuits and a full fruit bowl. The facilities were excellent. A washer drier including non bio washing detergent was very welcome. There is a pub in easy walking distance via the church yard. We have never stayed in the south lakes before but Lindale is an oasis of peace and we will be back.

Perched in a lovely position, overlooking the charming Cumbrian village of Lindale, is Mount Pleasant Cottage, a semi-detached dwelling ideal for a couple or small family of three wanting a peaceful village getaway and the opportunity to explore the South Lakeland region of the Lake District National Park.

Ample parking can be found on the quiet street close to the cottage, while the side entrance welcomes you into an open-plan living space, boasting a fully fitted kitchen and dining area, separated from the sitting room by a breakfast bar area, giving you plenty of choice when it comes to sitting down together to enjoy home-cooked meals.

Kick back on the sofa or spacious armchair for a night of family board games, a film on the Freeview TV, or a quiet evening unwinding with a good book.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way upstairs to discover a nicely finished double bedroom, overlooking the quaint village from its dual aspect windows, while the single bedroom offers the perfect sleeping space for a child or an additional guest.

Both rooms share access to a family bathroom suite, offering a bath with shower over, so you can choose how best to prepare for each day.

Explore your surroundings and discover the popular village pub, The Royal Oak, just a short walk from the property, which serves food and drinks, should you wish to take a night off from cooking and treat yourselves.

About the location


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.
