The property

Kendal 6.3 miles.

An impressive country house surrounded by panoramic views of the Lake District, Lyth Valley Country House is a true spectacle of a dwelling.

The ultimate abode for hosting large gatherings with friends and family, this former restaurant/inn offers everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing retreat in Cumbria.

Begin your exploration of the property by unwinding in the living/dining room; sure to be the social hub of your holiday, relax in the warmth of the woodburning stove, or venture out to the bar balcony from here.

In this room you can also find an extensive dining area, with enough room to host each and every guest, where you can enjoy home-made meals prepared in the wonder of the first-floor commercial kitchen.

The kitchen is kitted out with every appliance imaginable to assist you in your self-catered requirements, so you can prepare a family-favourite meal in no time, or why not hire out a chef for the week to experience ultimate ‘next level’ luxury.

Back at the bar area, you can enjoy a leisurely game of pool before heading off to your bedrooms to catch up on your rest.

Each of the bedrooms benefits from its own luxurious en-suite, with a combination of shower rooms and bathrooms, as well as the bedrooms predominantly being king-size rooms with the option of additional sofa beds and TVs, catering for a range of requirements and sleeping arrangements for up to 25 guests.

Three of the bedrooms are on the lower ground floor, with their own private patio area, providing far-reaching views of the luscious Cumbrian countryside.

To truly soak in your surroundings, enjoy time in the hot tub under the stars, or indulge in some time in the sauna for a truly tranquil evening.

The owners of the property provide a range of leisure facilities for guests, including clay pigeon shooting and archery – perfect for enjoying the outdoors without leaving the grounds; or further afield, explore the hidden gem that is the Lyth Valley, with the scenic River Gilpin running through, making it a great spot for a picnic.

Nearby Kendal hosts a wide range of amenities appealing to all ages, from the simplicities of delicious eateries and fantastic shopping experiences, to an abundance of history in the Kendal Museum, the Quaker Tapestry Museum and its imposing castle.

Enjoy a game of golf in the town before taking a trip to explore the other nearby Elizabethan architectural delights such as Sizergh Castle and Leven Halls, with its beautiful Topiary Garden; they both offer a truly scenic experience.

Perfectly positioned for exploring South Lakeland and the Yorkshire Dales, Lyth Valley Country House is fantastic base for a holiday at any time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
