The property

Damson Cottage is a pretty, romantic white-walled cottage set in the picturesque rural hamlet of Crook, a few miles from the tourist centre of Bowness and Lake Windermere itself. This spacious sleeps two property would look good on any chocolate box with a picturesque outlook over rolling countryside. Take invigorating or bracing walks starting straight from your door, pop into the nearby Sun Inn for a refreshing drink or make the most of the beautiful location by walking through to Staveley to visit The Hawkshead Brewery and Wilf's Cafe. Damson Cottage is full of character and charm and takes advantage of the outlook with the good size living accommodation being on the first floor and the bedroom and bathroom on the ground level. If searching for a cosy and gorgeous Lake District cottage in a peaceful spot yet very handy for everything this magnificent area has to offer, this cottage is perfect. == Accommodation in detail Park right outside Damson Cottage on this quiet lane. Entrance door into an entrance hall with cloaks cupboard and with passageway to the bathroom with toilet, sink and bath (with shampoo mixer spray) and the beautiful double bedroom which opens to the rear yard.

Location This cottage is ideally located for a peaceful Lake District break, within the attractive hamlet of Crook and only a short drive from the popular attractions at Bowness and Lake Windermere and the shops and attractions of Kendal. Even better, you have a well regarded country pub (The Sun at Crook) a mere 3 minutes walk away. Crook is pleasantly separate from the more crowded towns and surrounded by views of rolling hills and the Lyth and Winster Valleys. Traditional pubs serving delicious food are dotted throughout this green and pleasant area. Good food, peace and quiet are guaranteed. Steeped in history and folklore, Crook was once home to the area's mill and industrial workers. There are traditional cottages dating back to the 17th century still stand. The Lyth Valley comes alive with Damson blossom in the spring. Make sure you try some of the Damson delicacies on offer at the local bars and restaurants. Why not take home a bottle of Damson Gin as a souvenir? Lake shore attractions, sophisticated shops and evening entertainments are easily reached in Bowness village, just a few miles away.

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.
