The property

Tucked away in a secluded corner of the small village of Lindale, on an award-winning courtyard development, this barn conversion is close to the elegant Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands and the ancient priory village of Cartmel.

This cottage offers superb accommodation and makes an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Lake District, with Lake Windermere less than 5 miles away.

This lovely cottage offers two delightful bedrooms, along with a modern bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs, you can really appreciate the original features in the sitting room with its high vaulted ceiling and feature beams, together with a dining area where you can enjoy delicious, home-cooked meals.

There is also a separate Mezzanine area with seating, where you can escape for some peace and quiet with a good book.

Outside is a lovely enclosed garden with patio furniture, perfect for sunny days where you can enjoy the surroundings and relax.

The village of Lindale has a shop, pub and a Post Office, so you could amble up for your morning paper, whilst in the evening sample some of the hospitality in the pub.

Just a few minutes' drive from the cottage is Grange-over-Sands, a charming town noted for its gentle climate.

From here you can embark on a train ride over Morecambe Bay to Arnside, on the Lancashire coast, and enjoy all that this quiet, yet exquisite town has to offer.

The railway station in Grange is situated close to some lovely tea rooms and specialist shops including a bakery and chocolatiers.

For a superb day out, drive along to Cartmel and amble through this pretty village with its host of superb restaurants, individual shops and priory, with a river flowing through the centre with resident ducks.

The surrounding area is rich in flora and fauna with the Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve close by and whether you wish to explore the high fells or the charming low level walks, there is something for everyone in this charming corner of Cumbria, at any time of the year.

About the location


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

The small village of Lindale is situated in the south of the Lake District National Park, just a few short miles from the coastal estuary and the seaside town of Grange-over-Sands. Sitting on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell, Grange has a true 'Lakeland feel' with narrow streets, quaint stone dwellings, two traditional pubs and an 18-hole golf course. Cartmel, with its delicious sticky toffee pudding, famous annual horse race meetings, a 12th century priory, and gourmet restaurants is a ten-minute drive away from Grange. The pretty coastal resort of Arnside is also worthy of a visit. Just a short drive away is Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere, and Hawkshead - which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many. The area is perfect for walking and cycling for people of all abilities, with many Sustrans cycleways, Grizedale Mountain Bike trails nearby and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a stroll along the promenade at Grange-over-Sands or pull on your walking boots and explore the fells. Set amidst the charm of the southern lakes, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
