The property

This delightful Lakeland character cottage is part of a row in the hamlet of Crook, surrounded by scenic strolls and country pub lunches, yet only a few miles from Bowness village and the shores of Lake Windermere. Traditional features such as original fireplace and cosy woodburning stove give warmth and magic to a stylish and contemporary interior, which provides a pleasant base for up to 4 people. The rural yet convenient location is sublime for a relaxed retreat; walks from your door, 'pay as you play' golf nearby and a fabulous Lakeland local only 100 yards away. Definitely a home from home to return to! ==Accommodation in detail.Park right outside the cottage, with extra spaces close by.

Neat, modern kitchen with all the essentials.Back door leads to patio / yard. Upstairs to two pretty bedrooms (one double bedroom, one twin bedroom) both with far-reaching views. Stylish and contemporary house bathroom with shower over large bath. LocationThe scattered hamlet of Crook lies between Kendal and the Lake District, only a few miles from Bowness and Lake Windermere and overlooking the serene Lyth Valley. Walking is excellent in the area, as is good eating with numerous nationally-acclaimed country gastropubs to choose from! In spring, you'll be amazed by the damson blossom; the Lyth Valley is renowned for its damson harvest and there are plenty of treats to try in the area's pubs and restaurants.
