Property Description

There is a plethora of historic houses and gardens with Sizergh Castle, Levens Hall and Cartmel 12th-century priory all a short drive away. Shops 1 mile, pub 500 yards.

  5. Great cottage on the edge of Kendal very good location - easy to get into Kendal, up to Windermere and Ambleside, over to the Dales and onto the M6. There is a great indoor climbing wall in Kendal only about 15 min from the cottage which is well worth a visit. Dec 2011.
