    ... a nice touch.The property was well situated for exploring the lakes on foot or by car. We had a problem with the shower on our first day but this was dealt with very quickly. Would recommend the property and the area.

The property

This spacious and well-presented, light-filled apartment in Meathop is part of a former Victorian health resort hospital, built due to the brilliant air quality and the proximity to the estuary sea air.

Decorated in a fresh and tasteful manner throughout, the apartment has a generously-sized kitchen/diner, which has French doors to let lots of light in.

The sitting room is a great space for the whole group to gather together and make plans, and with large windows you can enjoy the wildlife, with woodpeckers being regular visitors, which are drawn to the wooded grounds surrounding the property.

The two comfortable bedrooms make this cottage ideal for a family or group of friends looking to explore the southern Lakes.

When you return from your days out, why not meander to the shared sun trap grounds at the back of the building, sit at a picnic table and listen to the bird song with a drink in hand and enjoy the tranquillity.

Three minutes’ walk from the cottage is the local pub which serves food in the evenings.

The Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands, with its interesting array of shops and cafés, including a chocolatier, is just three miles away.

Take a relaxing walk along the promenade and enjoy the Morecambe Bay vista to the Lakeland hills and Lancashire fells beyond.

You can also take a train ride up along the west coast, or pop across the bay over the viaduct to the attractive coastal village of Arnside on the other side of the estuary.

There is also the gastro village of Cartmel, with the smallest race course in the UK, a 12th century priory and the Michelin starred L’Enclume restaurant, but also not forgetting it is home to sticky toffee pudding.

Sizergh Castle and Garden with its striking historic interior and grounds, and Elizabethan Levens Hall with its world class topiary and gardens are a 15 minute drive away.

Further on is Kendal, an attractive market town with Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Museum, Brewery Arts Centre and weekly market is well worth a visit.

Newby Bridge at the southern tip of Lake Windermere is only six miles away, and from here you can take steam cruises to Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside to enjoy the fabulous Lakeland scenery from a different perspective.

This delightful cottage is in an ideal location, with walks from the doorstep and the Lakes close by, it is perfect for friends and family to use as a base while exploring this area.

About the location


Grange-Over-Sands 3 miles; Windermere 15 miles.

The small hamlet of Meathop is situated in the southern Lake District National Park, just a few miles from the coastal estuary, a quiet and peaceful area occupying a rural location on the path of the Cumbrian Coastal Way. Nearby is Lindale, sitting on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell, with a true 'Lakeland feel' to its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and quaint old pubs. Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange are all neighbours and worthy of a visit. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Newby Bridge, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many. Set amidst the charm of the southern lakes, Meathop makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
