The property

Nestled in the heart of the quaint village of Tebay, Cumbria is this lovely, mid-terrace cottage Parkholme.

Enjoying an idyllic position between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, Parkholme is a fantastic base for a family of four looking for a getaway amongst the great outdoors.

Upon arrival at the property, find an off-road parking space to the rear of the cottage.

Head inside the welcoming abode to find a delightful kitchen/diner, where the designated chef can fix up tasty dinners with the abundant appliances at hand, including a halogen hob.

Enjoy dinner with all the family at the close-by dining table, as you crack open a bottle of wine to toast to this wonderful escape.

After dinner, cosy up with your loved ones in the sitting room with a flickering open fire warming the space, and stylish sofas resting in front of a wall-mounted Smart TV.

As the day winds to a close, ascend the stairs to find two wonderfully appointed bedrooms, with one being a double and the other a twin; both bedrooms enjoy views of the village and distant countryside, making for quaint spaces to retire to after a long day out.

The shower room can also be found nearby and is home to a glass, curved walk-in cubicle, where you can freshen up for the day ahead.

The rear patio is the perfect relaxation spot, where you can relish a steaming cup of coffee or a good book in the sun, before grabbing a bike from the handy storage to embark on one of the many local cycleways.

Spend some time in Tebay where you can discover the landmark of Castle Howe, or embark on a hike across Yarlside, before rewarding yourself with a pint and bite to eat at the Cross Keys Inn or grabbing any essentials for dinner from the local service station.

Kendal rests a scenic drive away and is home to a great range of things to do, from touring the Kendal Museum and Abbot Hall to trying your putting skills at the local golf courses; the town is also home to KendalWall, a climbing centre for those seeking some exhilaration.

The Lake District National Park is home to a wealth of activities and attractions for all ages, with Windermere being arguably the most quintessentially Cumbrian town, as it enjoys access to a range of historical attractions that look back on the Park's history, including the Windermere Jetty Museum and nearby National Trust property of Hill Top, whilst also hosting a range of watersports centres for you to make use of as you traverse the waters of Lake Windermere.

There is a plethora of sights to see in this fabulous region, including the towns of Penrith, Keswick and Ambleside, to name a few, as well as the delights of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, from the peaks of Birks Fell and Buckden Pike, to stunning waterfalls of Cotter Force and Cautley Spout.

An amazing break awaits at Parkholme.

About the location


Kendal 13 miles; Penrith 17 miles; Windermere 19 miles.

The charming old village of Tebay sits near the eastern fringe of the Lake District National Park. The village itself winds its way along the edge of the main thoroughfare and the traditionally whitewashed Cross Keys Inn has been there for 500 years or more. The inn is reputedly haunted by the ghost of the Tebay Witch, Mary Baynes. Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the area is surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and beautiful scenery. Nearby Orton has a local pub serving good food, a Post Office/shop, tea rooms and the famous handmade chocolate shop. A lovely village green surrounded by 17th and 18th century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmers' market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month. Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales.
