The property

Dragonsfell nestles in a picturesque hamlet in the rolling hills of South Lakeland, with the scenic delights of the Lakes to the west and the Yorkshire Dales National Park less than 5 miles to the east. The historic market town of Kendal – ‘gateway to the Lakes’ - with its shops, bars, restaurants and intriguing passageways is just a ten-minute drive away. Dragonsfell is easily identified by the dragon woodcarving at its garden entrance, its substantial construction oozes rustic character, now updated for the digital age with 1 Gb fibre broadband, a 55-inch smart TV, and Google Nest house management and music facilities, Naturally a genuine Jacuzzi 7-seater hot tub awaits you right outside the back door, alongside the outdoor sitting, dining and play area. Set over three floors, Dragonsfell’s spacious accommodation is a well-equipped retreat for families and friends. After a day of exploring the delights of the Lakes or venturing to the Dales, guests can look forward to unwinding in the large lounge nicknamed ‘the ballroom’, complete with a beamed ceiling, new woodburning stove and a large Smart TV, or perhaps in the large Jacuzzi hot tub just outside its doors. Maybe head to the Bosch-equipped kitchen-diner and dust off the cooking books to whip up a delicious feast using the new 5-plate induction hob, before serving up at the beautiful oak dining table with a bottle of fizz. Dragonsfell has four bedrooms on the second floor, and a fifth with level access on the ground floor, the very spacious master features a 2000-spring super-king bed, the generously proportioned guest room has a standard double with space for an optional single bed or cot, while the other two bedrooms house twin singles and another double. The family bathroom with shower, tub and basin is also on this floor, on the lower ground floor, the large bedroom has a king-size bed and offers the easiest access for disabled or elderly guests, and a washroom. All bedrooms are presented with fresh white bed linen and most have large built-in wardrobes offering masses of storage for your personal belongings. Move outside and enjoy a morning coffee or an evening tipple on the garden patio, the attractive low-maintenance shrub garden offers comfortable outside dining in spring and summer and has enough space for garden games and for young children to play, the refurbished garden gate has an been fitted with an exterior latch for their safety. Or pop on your walking boots and exploring the local the area, be that five minutes down the valley into a beautiful bluebell wood, or in the opposite direction to reach a scenic skyline. Adventurous souls can venture further afield deep into the National Park, tackling the heights of Scafell Pike or the Langdale Pikes, but the lakeside tranquility of Buttermere or boat hire and trips on the heritage steamers at Ullswater too have their gentler charm. For families with children, the Brockhole leisure park is a must, and keen cyclists can pick up the Sustrans 70 route linking the Lakes and the Dales less than half a mile away from Dragonfell or get over to the renowned Whinlater Forest mountain bike trails. The market town of Kendal is home to your closest amenities, boasting a variety of shopping arcades and plenty of places to eat and drink, including the supermarkets of M&S or Booths (aka ‘the Waitrose of the north’) for grabbing those essentials, visit Kendal Museum and see unique collections of natural history and archaeology, or for a more hands-on experience, explore the ruins of Kendal Castle and see how Kendal life was during the 12th-century. With the natural splendour of the Lake District at your disposal, a holiday at Dragonsfell promises to a memorable one, so come to Dragonsfell and feel the Dragon’s spell, either in the centre of things or far from the madding crowd, as takes your fancy…..

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.
