Within easy reach of the market town of Kendal and set in an idyllic location next to the river, this newly renovated farmhouse caters for all. There are plenty of walks straight from your door which you can explore in any direction. Kendal is a short drive away and the property provides a central place from which to explore both the Lake district and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. To the west the vibrant town of Windermere is a great place to enjoy the many cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops. From there you can head down to Bowness, Lake Windermere and take a tour of the lake via the steamboats, or if you prefer, to hire kayaks and have your own mini adventures. The small hamlet of Staveley a few miles away is worth a visit, with its award-winning brewery and café centre. Northwards, away from the crowds, are mountains and lakes such as Haweswater, as well as easy access to the motorway, Penrith and Keswick, whilst eastwards lie the villages and hamlets of the Yorkshire dales. This is a great base for exploring Ambleside, Kendal and many National Trust properties, or to explore Lancashire and Yorkshire further afield.

On entering the property you firstly enter the lounge, with original beams and traditional wood burning stove, which is the best place to relax on the two-leather sofa’s, while viewing a movie on the Smart TV. To the right of the lounge is brand new for 2020 kitchen, which retains the farmhouse feel and ambiance. Here you will find all you need to create a lovely family meal with built in dishwasher, fridge/freezer, induction hob and dual oven, along with seating. Head out the back of the lounge to the small hallway which houses the shower room with WC. On the other small hall is the utility area with washer and dryer plus a place to hang your coats and muddy boots. On the first floor we find a cosy room with bunk bed, tucked away through a secret door and providing your own hidden den for children and young teenagers. To the left is the main bathroom with shower over bath and WC all recently upgraded. The first bedroom on the left is a king-size room with views overlooking the nearby river and further along the hall is a king size room with the same majestic view. Finally, we reach the master bedroom housing a twin zip-and-link (which can be made into a super-king-size on request) with an abundance of storage space for all your items and built in wardrobe.

Outside you will find an enclosed garden area with seating area plus BBQ.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
