Property Description

This wonderful centuries-old barn has been carefully converted to create two character eco-friendly holiday cottages with their own patios, giving stunning views over open farm and hills. Situated on the edge of Kendal, a historic market town famous for its mint cake, the location is perfect to tour the Lake District (Windermere 9 miles) and Yorkshire Dales (Sedbergh 9 miles). Water sports or cruises on the lakes, mountain climbing in the Langdales and coastal walks on the Cumbrian Coastal Way are just a few of the many activities to be enjoyed in the area. 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.

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely cottage, scrupulously maintained, and charming owners. The only downside is that it is very small! June 2012.
  2. Compact, clean and comfortable property; well designed barn conversion; location very handy for access to the South Lakes area. March 2012.
  3. Lovely converted barn, superb location just on the edge of Kendal. Perfect cottage to spend a relaxing holiday in. Oct 2011.
  4. The property was just what we were looking for. It was very homely, and welcoming, and just big enough for two people. I would certainly go back to the cottage again. Oct 2011.
  5. A very well equipped and cosy cottage. Aug 2011.
  6. Shepherd’s Rest is beautiful. Inside the cottage, everything has been done to the highest of standards and outside the cottage, the views are amazing. It is an ideal location to use as a base for exploring the lake district. We had a lovely time and would love to come back. July 2011.
  7. This is the perfect accomodation for a Lake District Holiday. The best cottage we have stayed at. June 2011.
  8. Very compact but adequate accomodation in ideal location for exploring the Lake District and Moors. April 2011.
  9. The property is clean, well designed with good quality modern appliances. Oct 2010.
  10. Tasteful decor, very clean, all mod cons and very user friendly. Very conveniently situated with easy access to and from main roads. Sept 2010.
  11. It was incredibly clean with a quality finish and felt like a home from home. It was very cosy and picturesque with an impressive bathroom, and the owners left very useful information about the renovations of the building itself, as well as places to eat in the area which gave us sound advice! Sept 2010.
  12. A compact living accommodation to a luxury standard 1 bedroom. Aug 2010.
  13. Excellent location. Extremely well equipped cottage very modern and comfortable it had everything we needed. July 2010.
  14. Very well equipped, very good standard, good location. July 2010.
  15. A beautifully equipped cottage created from a stone barn. All mod cons and installed to a high standard. This single bedroom cottage was relatively compact and fairly dark due to the Local Planning Department not permitting larger windows than were originally in the barn. However, this did not detract in any way from our enjoyment of staying in the cottage. June 2010.
  16. Very well equipped, though small very well designed and perfectly adequate for two people. June 2010.
  17. The accommodation was good - if a little small. June 2010.
  18. It was really cosy and me and my boyfriend loved it! June 2010.
  19. The cottage was very clean and modern, superbly decorated and very luxurious, the location was slightly remote but within easy reach of Kendal which is walkable (approx 1.5miles), and the main road nearby was great for traveling to Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere and many more fab areas of the Lake District. The cottage had lovely views and was fully equipped with kitchen utensils, towels etc. A fully exceptional stay really enjoyed it and we hope to return soon! March 2010.
  20. It was very clean and the decor and furniture was of a high quality. March 2010.
