With historic links to Kendal's past, Castle Crescent is a former weaver's cottage built over three floors and has just enough outdoor space to squeeze a chair for a morning cup of coffee or evening sundowner.
The layout of the ground floor is open plan with a striking red gas fired Aga and electric fire. The central location of Castle Crescent puts you within just a short walk of all the town's amenities

Just south of Kendal and very easy access form the M6 lies the small village of Brigsteer with its award winning pub. And in that village on Sunday School hill is Honeypot Cottage. Yes the hill is steep as is the only other way to the pub, but the pub is lovely and the views from the garden at Honeypot will have you itching to explore the beautiful southern Lakes, though of course you can walk from the door too, as Honeypot is just on the edge of Scout Scar.
Owners note : the en-suite bedroom has a sloping roof with restricted headway

You may just get chickens popping over to say hello at this lovely cottage in rural Cumbria. The exposed beams and wood-burning stove all add to the character of Barow Tenement and the Lythe valley is famous for its damson trees which are not only a great source for damson gin (!), but have such pretty blossoms throughout the valley during spring.
The two sitting/lounge areas and access passes for the local hotel leisure facilities which includes a swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi make this an ideal property for two families or family with teens.

Dodds Howe gives you the best of both worlds...in fact it gives you the best of three worlds! Not only are you just a quarter hour drive from Bowness on Windermere but you can retreat to the beauty and serenity of the Lyth Valley with its damson blossoms and slower pace of life when the day is over. And the third world I mentioned, well what may appear to be a sleepy rural Cumbrian village is actually home to the The Punch Bowl gastro-pub which was renovated and is still owned by a local Lakelander his and his team's efforts earning a culinary mention in the 2020 Michelin guide.
