We had a great time at Valley View, the location is perfect for the lakes and close to Kendal for shops etc. Hannah was always available and happy to help with anything we needed and a pleasure to deal with. The amenities at Valley View were perfect for us as a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 children), having en-suite in each bedroom was perfect and thRead moree kitchen had all the essentials. The views over the valley are amazing. Would definitely recommend, many thanks. Hide

Fantastic accommodation, spacious and homely with everything we needed! Beds were very comfortable and having an en-suite in every room was ideal. The views from the house were beautiful, very peaceful location and Lake Windermere only a short drive away aswel as lots of lovely walks to do. Pub 2 minutes walk away and others a short drive, food at Read morethe Mason Arms was amazing! Would highly recommend Crosthwaite House for a holiday in the Lakes, we definitely hope to return soon.

It was perfect for our family of 6. The three bedrooms each had their own bathroom, living area is spacious and we could all fit easily round the table at dinner time. Hannah the owner is lovely and left us to it for the week, but was also on hand for any queries. Situated near the town of Kendal and Lake Windermere just a 15 min drive away. There'Read mores a pub/restaurant a short walk away and a children's playground which the kids loved. Would definitely consider booking this property again. Hide

Hannah and her family were available in case they were needed but otherwise they left us completely alone to enjoy the property. It is an easy drive to the Lakes and country houses and walks but away from the holiday crowds. There are no shops or street lighting and the planes fly high and unheard. Parking is excellent.

Middle Floor is a very well equipped apartment situated in an ideal location for the Southern Lakes. The apartment is very peaceful and it is surrounded by the lovely rolling countryside. There are handful of really good pub/restaurants within 5 to 10 mins drive and one reassuringly expensive pub on the doorstep.

Location

Map
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.
