It's hard to describe the magic of this location; at the foot of Kentmere Valley approached by a maze of picturesque lanes. Even when explored by car, this area is one of the Lake District's most beautiful with Lake Windermere and the village of Windermere only 15 minutes away... and from your classy pad you'll enjoy beautiful views throughout your stay.
The nearest village is Staveley, which places you at the heart of a real Lakeland community. This pretty village lies at the gateway to the Kentmere Valley, in a convenient location between Kendal and Windermere.
Staveley is alive with artisan crafts and art galleries, but it's also an absolute treat for foodies. In the Staveley Mill Yard, you'll find the famous More Artisan Bakery, the popular walkers' cafe 'Wilf's Cafe' and also the award-winning Hawkshead Brewery and Beer Hall (selling 'beer tapas' bar food.) You'll have to try them all! The perfect Lake District pub is the Eagle & Child - one of the most highly-regarded pubs in the area and a perfect choice for a bar meal out.
Closer to home is the Handsome micro-brewery in Bowston overlooking the picturesque river Kent, a 20 minute walk away.
To stock up your kitchen and explore further afield, you only need drive a few miles on the A591 to Windermere village. There, you'll find a high class Booths supermarket and many other useful shops. From Windermere village, the A591 provides your main route into the heart of the Lakes, making this cottage's setting a very convenient Lake District holiday base.
Only 15 minutes from Windermere and Bowness, 15 minutes from Kendal and twenty minutes from the Yorkshire Dales you'll find something for everyone. The Gateway Inn and the Plumgarths Farm Shop and cafe are a short distance away.
