With blossoming garden and superb countryside views from every window, this traditional Lakeland cottage holiday home is tucked down a peaceful country lane, only a few miles from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The interior is as magical as the setting, with latch doors leading through stone flagged floored rooms, exposed beams and a woodburning stove. Birchmill Cottage is a haven for keen fell walkers, but is also ideal for family breaks. There are also several excellent gastropubs and three golf courses nearby. The community gathers around the excellent Sun Inn, soon to be your 'log fire local'. The 'Crook Road' B5284 runs between Kendal and Bowness, for ease of access to the shops, entertainments and attractions of both. There are plenty of opportunities for fell walking in the immediate area, if you are hoping to explore farther afield.
