    “During our stay the weather was poor, but the cottage with a good supply of books, CDs, DVDs and jigsaws provided a cozy haven from the storm!”

    The location is handy for lots of interesting places around Lake Windermere and the close proximity of the Sun Inn with its good food was an added bonus.

    - Mr Merckel,


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. Entrance porch leads into the country dining room with open fire and valley views. Relaxing lounge features multifuel stove with original fireplace surround. 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. For wider explorations through the Lake District, you'll find navigation easy. The B5284 'Crook road' carries you easily to Bowness and Lake Windermere, and immediately you're on the main driven routes through the highlights of the Lake District.
