  • Liz

    “I was very impressed by the overall standard of the property - the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen very well stocked, plenty of space available in the cottage, the lovely well cared for garden and ideally situated for a visit to the Lake District.”

    One thing to mention is that sometimes the tap water was very cloudy and as I wasn’t sure whether this was usual in the area or not, I just bought a 10 litre box of water for drinking.

With a peaceful garden and superb countryside views from every window, this traditional Lakeland cottage is tucked down a peaceful country lane in the hamlet of Crook. Inside the cottage, a homely interior welcomes you as latch doors lead through stone flagged floored rooms, with exposed beams and wood burning stove.Only a few miles from Bowness and Lake Windermere, Birchmill Cottage is a haven for keen fell walkers, but is also ideal for family breaks in the beautiful southern Lake District. There are several excellent gastro-pubs nearby and The Sun Inn is only a few minutes' walk away. In addition to the aquatic attractions of Lake Windermere there are also three golf courses within easy reach. 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. ==Accommodation in detailGarden with furniture for al-fresco dining. Entrance hall with abundant hooks for outdoor clothes.

The surrounding Lyth and Winster Valleys offer a real air of tranquility, far from the madding crowds and famously doused with damson blossom in spring. The magnificent display of snow drops locally in early spring is unsurpassed.

About the location

KENDAL

Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
