The property

Shap 5.0 miles.

Greywalls is a quaint, detached cottage nestled in Maulds Meaburn near Shap, Cumbria.

With a lovely enclosed garden and spacious living areas, the cottage is perfect for a family or group of six looking for a peaceful base from which to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

Greywalls has a stunning, traditional cottage exterior, whilst inside you will find contemporary living areas; prepare your favourite meals in the kitchen/diner with seating for six guests, complete with a Smart TV for dinner entertainment, as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer so you can pack less for a longer trip with plenty of outdoor activities.

With large windows looking out to the garden, the sitting room is a bright and airy setting to relax and listen to music on the Bluetooth speaker, or have a film night on the Smart TV by the warm glow of the woodburning stove.

Kick-start your day with a hot shower in the ground-floor shower room, with a spacious walk-in shower and a heated towel rail to toast your towel.

Greywalls is home to three fantastic bedrooms; one super-king-size zip/link, another super-king-size and a ground-floor double, all of which have plenty of space for your belongings and getting ready for the day's adventure.

The cottage features a wonderful, enclosed garden with lawn, patio and outdoor seating for breakfast in the sunshine and beautiful countryside surroundings.

Maulds Maeburn is a picturesque village sitting in the Yorkshire Dales, with the River Lyvennet running through, and is home to one of three remaining village greens in England where local sheep still graze.

A short journey away, stock up on the essentials or enjoy dinner out in Shap, with shops, pubs and a swimming pool for a local day out, where you can also find the fascinating Shap Abbey ruins.

Pooley Bridge lies to the north west of the cottage, which is perfect for pleasant walks, hiring a boat to explore Ullswater, or discover the historic architecture of St. Paul's church and the surrounding homes.

For a livelier, touristy town, head south of Greywalls for Kendal; there is plenty to see and do, from Kendal Golf Club to KendalWall Climbing Centre, or cultural pursuits in Abbot Hall Gallery and Kendal Museum, as well as fantastic walks in the incredible surrounding countryside.

For a stay in a traditional cottage, with all the contemporary comforts of home, Greywalls is an excellent choice for the best of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
