    “The property was stunning and the inside warm and welcoming.”

    It was perfect for a weekend away and a base camp to visit Kendal and Windermere. A great place for ourselves and our daughter, who felt at home instantly and slept with the peace and quiet of the countryside. Thanks so much for making the Old Chapel so lovely!!!

The property

This intriguing rural character property is a former Lakeland chapel; a stunning blend of olde worlde character and 21st century chic. Only a 10 minute drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere, The Old Chapel enjoys a blissful countryside setting; only a stroll from an excellent country pub yet in a peaceful and relaxing setting. One or two couples will find this the perfect retreat; with elegant space for socialising but plenty of privacy too. The adorable bedrooms (one featuring a Victorian corner bath) are set on separate floors. Families will enjoy a magical location for country walks and activities, without straying too far from the most popular Lake District attractions. Escape here at any time of year and fall in love with country life! == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars. Entrance hall with space for walking clobber. Stylish dining room / kitchen with woodburning stove and French doors. Ground floor king-size bedroom with corner roll top bath and en-suite shower room. Upstairs to the lounge area with deep-cushioned sofas and far-reaching views to the fells. 2nd double bedroom on this floor, also with en-suite shower room. Outside, the dreamy 'secret garden' has to be seen to be appreciated! 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. 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. On your way, you'll also pass the prestigious Windermere Golf Club while only a short stroll from your cottage is Beckside Golf Club.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

The pretty hamlet of Crook is situated in beautiful Lakeland countryside and offers excellent access to the heart of the Lake District National Park. There is a pub in Crook itself and a wide variety of super walks on the surrounding fells. Less than six miles from Lake Windermere - England's longest lake - and a similar distance from all the amenities of Kendal, Cumbria's historic market town. The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere hold enduring appeal for visitors to the Lake District National Park, with each providing a range of nearby attractions, amenities, shops, and restaurants to suit all tastes. A variety of boat trips and boat hire are available from Windermere Lake Cruises in Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside (at the southern end of the lake where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated). The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and the Old Laundry theatre are 1.5 miles away. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is a short car ride away, to enjoy the spectacular panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
