The property

In a countryside setting only 10 minutes from Bowness and Lake Windermere, the historic Starnthwaite Ghyll mill house has been tastefully converted into a special complex of character cottages. Delightfully off the beaten track, Gilpin View is one of a row of four attractive cottages overlooking the stream and across the orchard to the lush Lyth Valley, very close to Crosthwaite village and the award-winning Punchbowl Inn (1.5m away). The accommodation is beautifully presented, echoing the lines of the original building and full of rural charm with its country kitchen, charming bedrooms and relaxing living room. The gardens are a dream, and the private furnished patio is perfect for soaking up the unique pace of life this area has to offer. == Accommodation in detail Parking outside the property, access to the main gardens and also Gilpin View's private patio with garden furniture. Enter to the wonderfully homely open plan living area, with sitting area overlooking the stream and a country-style kitchen set apart with a large pine table and chairs. Upstairs to the romantic double bedroom, beautifully furnished and with a picturesque cottage window. Loft style twin bedroom with skylight. Fully tiled house bathroom with shower over bath. Location This superb Lake District holiday cottage in Crosthwaite has a stunning rural location, off the beaten track but surprisingly convenient and easily accessible from the M6. You'll find a renowned and award-winning Lake District country pub, The Punchbowl, in Crosthwaite village, as well as a delightful old church to explore. Crosthwaite is a small community in the north of the Lyth Valley, between Kendal and Lake Windermere. The area is renowned for its lush green landscapes, wonderful walks, peaceful country lanes, pretty woodlands and prized damson harvest - which gives rise to stunning damson blossom in spring. Only a ten minute drive takes you past the Windermere Golf Club to bustling Bowness village on Lake Windermere's eastern shore, where you'll find sophisticated shops, endless boating activities, Lake District family attractions such as the World of Beatrix Potter, and a range of options for evening entertainment. From traditional Lakeland pubs to trendy tapas bars, cinema, theatre and nightclub, there's something for every taste. From Bowness Bay, you can hop on a Windermere Lake Cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside - a great way to explore while soaking up the scenery. If you'd prefer to explore the wider Lake District by car, perhaps to seek out walking routes, the A591 leads easily from Windermere village to Ambleside, Rydal Water, historic Grasmere and beyond. With stress-free journeys and easy navigation from your rural Lake District holiday cottage, the highlights of the Lake District National Park are within easy reach.

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

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 5 miles; Kendal 6 miles.

Crosthwaite is a small village set in the picturesque Lyth Valley, famous for its damson trees, and boasts a lovely pub known nationally for its excellent food. The lakeside towns of Windermere and Bowness are nearby, with plenty of activities, interest and entertainment for all ages. Also within easy reach is the popular market town of Kendal, an historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping. Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent. 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. 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.
