This traditional semi detached 19th century cottage is situated in a quiet, rural position with views of the Lake District fells and Langdale Pikes in the distance.
The cottage is approached down a private drive, a fields distance from the road, making it secluded and quiet and yet it is only 1 1/2 miles north of the mediaeval market town of Kendal, known as the Gateway to the Lakes.
The cottage is on the edge of the Lake District National Park which makes it ideally situated for exploring Windermere (8 miles), Ambleside and the central Lake District.
The valleys of Longsleddale and Kentmere are only 4 miles away and they offer dramatic scenery, good walking and birdwatching - buzzards are often seen circling the hills opposite the cottage.
Ten miles east brings you to Sedbergh and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Accommodation - Entrance Porch into hallway with downstairs WC. Fully fitted kitchen with separate dining area with good sized table and 4 chairs. Large sitting room with large comfortable 3 seater settee, two large armchairs, plus other seating. There is an open fire and an antique broadwood cottage piano.
Upstairs, one bedroom with double bed and one bedroom with two single beds. Both bedrooms have washbasins and both bedrooms look out over open countryside. Family bathroom with bath with overhead shower and WC.
There is a third bedroom on the second floor but this is used for storage.
