Located between the shoreline of Lake Windermere and the bustling market town of Kendal, this wonderful cottage is perfect for couples who wish to discover the timeless landscapes that has enthralled poets and artists for centuries, before returning to relax in state-of-the-art luxury. Stroll the cobbled streets of Kendal, browsing the independent stores, climb up to the ruins of 13th-century Kendal Castle and delight in the skilled needlework on display in the Quaker Tapestry. Step onboard one of Lake Windermere's steamers for a sedate journey over the water, hopping off to see the underwater inhabitants at the Lakes Aquarium or visit Beatrix Potter's holiday home at Brockhole for a peaceful lakeside picnic.

 

Set within 3 acres of grounds and with use of the swimming pool with hot tub and sauna, your holiday hideaway is truly special. Contemporary styling and neutral tones make the open-plan interior bright and welcoming. Relax in the lounge in front of the feature fireplace while you catch up on your favourite TV programme. Cook up a storm in the modern kitchen and enjoy dinner for two at the quirky dining table. Fusing luxury and style, your super-king-size bedroom is an indulgent space to slumber and the en-suite bathroom with his and hers sinks and a bath big enough for two is sensational. Outside you can enjoy early evening supper on your private patio looking over the gardens.

 

Sample some local ales on a brewery tour at nearby Staveley (3.5 miles) and ride a steam tractor at Old Hall Farm, where heavy horses and vintage machinery is used to farm the land. Treat yourself to some homemade ice cream in the tearoom before working off your indulgence on a walk across the Staveley Tarns. Appreciate the rare Elizabethan furniture and prized portraits at Sizergh Castle (8 miles), wander through the gardens and woodland, or enjoy a pot of tea in the contemporary café.

Staying in Mirefoot was the highlight of our Lake District holiday. The cottage we were in (Shippon) was superbly appointed and furnished, and the on-site recreational facilities truly excellent. We were made very welcome by all of the team members who were at hand throughout. The arrangements for mitigating infection risk were well thought throughRead more, especially in regard to exclusive cottage use of the pool area in rotation. Hide

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.
