Escape to this beautifully finished Georgian farmhouse and discover the rejuvenating power of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Set on the outskirts of the village of Killington, this beautiful farmhouse makes a tranquil haven for holidays with family and friends, it's the perfect location to explore the perfectly preserved villages of Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Sedbergh.

 

 Step inside this magnificent country house and savour the lavish interior. From the main lounge's contemporary wood burner to the exposed lintels in the walls of the dining room, this farmhouse oozes comfort and class. Prepare a hearty homecooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen or let the warmth of the snug inspire your next adventure. After a day of exploring the rising fells of the Lake District, enjoy a long hot bath before sinking into one of the property's five flexible bedrooms which can be made up to accommodate all manner of guests. Step through the conservatory and out into the fabulous patio or the front door to the garden and drink in the unparalleled Cumbrian countryside. Then feast together around the charcoal BBQ or relax in the hot tub and while away the evening with stories and laughter.

 

Described by Alfred Wainwright as 'a herd of sleeping elephants' the Howgills lie in slumber for every visitor. This small triangle of hills drawn between Sedbergh, Kirkby Stephen boasts spectacular views of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Be sure to visit Cautley Spout (10 miles), considered to be the highest waterfall in England. Closer to home, take a leisurely stroll along the river Lune to the fabulous vista at Ruskin's View. Or travel 7.5 miles to Kendal, a town alive with heritage, arts, culture and fabulous cuisine.

This is a fabulous home from home and my sister and I had a wonderful quiet relaxing week here, despite the rain. The owner is warm and welcoming and couldnt be more helpful. You are a short drive to most places but honestly with such character, charm and views you really dont need to.

The house overall was finenot convinced it was worth the money compared to other properties I have rented at same price. Dining room/back bedrooms quite dark would benefit from improved lighting.

Absolutely. Three Mile Cottage is lovely and very homely, unlike cottages we have stayed at before that sometimes feel like a 'holiday rental'. The owner has put so much effort into the finishing touches to such high standard that make all the difference. We will definitely be returning.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
