Croft Foot Farm

Set within the fells of the Lake District, a stone's throw from the popular market town of Kendal and perched on the owner's farm, is this pair of quirky wooden pods. Facing in opposite directions to maintain a level of privacy but featuring a large communal grassy area between the two pods, this group of properties is perfect for a small gathering of friends, families or couples. Conveniently positioned between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Park. Both providing many scenic views of this beautiful area, you're able to step outside the door and explore your surroundings, ideal for avid walkers, hikers or cyclists. With convenient transport links to many popular neighboring towns, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding on how to spend your days away. Hire a boat and explore Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in the Lake District or learn a new skill and take a visit to the all-weather climbing and bouldering wall in Kendall and ready yourself to tackle Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England! Enjoy a night out in the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, home to an array of pubs, bars and restaurants or take the little ones to The World of Beatrix Potter where her characters are brought to life. However you plan to spend your holiday, there's something to please everyone here, and this excellent group of pods is sure to be the perfect base to complete a staycation in the Lake District.

The property

Settled on the owner's farm in the civil parish of Docker, Cumbria, is this stunning wooden pod, Tan, the perfect location for a romantic retreat for a couple looking to explore the landscape of the Lake District. You'll be welcomed by the peaceful surroundings of the pod, nestled within the picturesque fells and offering magnificent views over the countryside, you'll be eager to unload and get exploring. As you venture inside the wonder will continue as the open-plan studio-style living invites you in to cosy up on the corner sofa, conveniently pulling into a double bed, and enjoy a cup of the locally sourced coffee provided. The budding chef will be happy with the petite kitchenette where they can rustle up a hearty meal to enjoy over laughter around the dining table before retiring to the double bed tucked away in the corner for some well-deserved rest ready to prepare for a new day. Servicing the pod is the shower room where you can rejuvenate ahead of another exciting adventure or wash away the day before settling down for the evening. The decked area to the front of the property adds additional living space, with a picnic table perfectly positioned for a spot of alfresco dining or to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in the evening.

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.
