This traditional semi-detached 19th century cottage is situated in a quiet, rural position with views of the Lake District fells and Langdale Pikes in the distance. The cottage is approached down a private drive, a fields distance from the road, making it secluded and quiet and yet it is only 1 1/2 miles north of the mediaeval market town of Kendal, known as the GATEWAY TO THE LAKE DISTRICT. The cottage is on the edge of the Lake District National Park which makes it ideally situated for exploring Windermere (8 miles), Ambleside (12 miles) and the rest of the central Lake District. A trip up the scenic A6 takes you to the northern access to the Lakes - Pooley Bridge for the northern end of Ullswater or onto Keswick for Derwentwater and Borrowdale. The valleys of Longsleddale and Kentmere are only 4 miles away and they offer dramatic scenery, good walking and birdwatching - buzzards are often seen circling the hills opposite the cottage. Ten miles east brings you to the book town of Sedbergh and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Accommodation comprises - Entrance Porch into hallway with downstairs WC. NEWLY extended and fully fitted kitchen with separate dining area with good sized table and chairs. Large and spacious sitting room (over 21' long) with a large comfortable 3 seater settee, a comfortable two seater settee plus other seating.
