Straight out of a fairy tale, this enchanting stone cottage at the heart of a sleepy village boasts gorgeous views of the Lythe. Bursting with period features, your holiday accommodation is a delightful haven for relaxing after a day of adventures and sleeps four guests across two bedrooms. You’ll be ideally placed for explorations near and far, based just 5.5 miles from the shores of Lake Windermere and the surrounding array of lakeside towns.

Step down into the open-plan living space to discover a comforting retreat with original beamed ceilings, wooden pillars and classic furniture. Pour a glass of wine and unwind on the sofas, or cook together in the country-cottage-style kitchen area using locally sourced ingredients and artisan produce. The farmhouse-style table has plenty of space for family meals and board games, or dine al fresco outside in the shared garden with sizzling BBQ treats. At bedtime, climb the stairs to enjoy a long soak in the pretty bathroom before retiring to one of two inviting bedrooms. There is off-road parking for two cars, and shared laundry facilities are available nearby.

Soak up the atmosphere and indulge in a spot of retail therapy in Kendal, a bustling market town brimming with independent shops, art galleries and eateries. Easily reached within 6.5 miles, there’s plenty to amuse guests with all tastes and interests, as Kendal has a vibrant culture characterised by art galleries, museums and galleries. Marvel at the ruins of Kendal Castle, learn about the area’s rich wool trade history and take a moment to reflect in the ancient parish church. Further afield, Cartmel village, 13 miles away, is known for its 12th-century priory, famous cheese shop and tantalising selection of restaurants, ranging from traditional pubs to Michelin-star restaurants.

The Cottage is a great little find. It's Cosy, but has everything we needed for a week's stay in the Lakes. We are a family of four with a dog and we had no problem fitting in the place. The steps / small door to the garden would be a challenge to someone who's unsteady, but you can get round the side. When we arrived there was one dishwasher tab, Read more3 laundry tabs, some instant coffee, cooking oil spray and a pint of milk. The nearest shop is a good drive, so do take anything else you might need. Hide

Lovely cottage in a perfect location. Great views and walks from the minute you step outside. It's in a quiet location but very easy to get to Windermere, Kendal, Keswick. The Punch Bowl pub is a 2 minute walk away and well worth a visit as is The Black Labrador PH that's less than 2 miles from the cottage. The cottage itself has everything you neeRead mored and more and is pleasure to return to and relax after a day travelling the lakes. We'll definitely be back. Hide

Very friendly and helpful great for our 2 dogs only 2 problems we had were the door to the garden is only a large window which proved difficult for my wife and father-in-law to get through. The lounge area only had seating for 3 but it would be difficult to regig the space and still have room for the dinning table. This said I am not complaining orRead more trying to put people off just being honest. The facilities provided are second to non and we had a great time and would go back with no hesitation 5* Hide

The property was just right. Its location was easy to get to from outside of the Lake District yet made the main locations easy to reach. Sitting in the secure garden with its wonderful views was a delight. The people who owned the property were friendly and easy to talk to and their dogs were also very friendly.

We had a lovely stay and were more than happy when we arrived. The cottage was cozy and well equipped, it was everything we were hoping for. The area was really nice, quiet and a few short walks routes for the dogs. It was quite wet and muddy during our visit so would love to come back in the summer months and make use of the garden in the eveningsRead more...the view is great.
