Self-Catering Holiday Cottage Kendal

Cottage in Cumbria in Kendal, Cumbria

Cottage in Cumbria Self-Catering

The remote cottage, just outside the sleepy hamlet of Oxen Park, dates back 250 years and exudes character. Surrounded by open countryside and with a large, mature garden, it s the ideal place to get close to nature and forget the stresses of everyday life. Head deep into the Rusland Valley for long hikes through open moorland and woodland or get the adrenaline pumping with a bike ride through Grizedale Forest (5 miles). Windermere, one of the jewels in the Lake District crown, is just 10 miles away. As England s largest lake, the scenery is quite spectacular, especially when viewed from one of the iconic steamers, heritage steam railway or high above the lake on one of the nearby fells. Enter the beautiful, detached cottage via the sunroom, which is the ideal place for storing all your muddy boots and outdoor gear, as well as sipping your morning coffee. From here, move into the exquisite kitchen/diner. This spacious area is full of character, with slate flooring, exposed beams and an ornamental stone fireplace housing a cosy wood burner and Smart TV. The heart of the home has been designed with socialising in mind, with a large oval table to enjoy mealtimes together or sit with a glass of wine to chat whilst the dinner is cooking on the induction hob or in the range style oven. There is also a dishwasher in the kitchen and washing machine. A step from the kitchen leads down to the fabulous lounge. This room is bathed in natural light, thanks to the triple aspect windows, and has an impressive, vaulted ceiling. A sofa and two armchairs are arranged around a roaring wood burner and there is also an antique rocking chair to relax in with a good book. Heading upstairs, you ll find the two elegantly decorated double bedrooms, which both boast wonderful countryside views and have a wardrobe and drawers for storing all your belongings. The cottage also has two bathrooms, one with a shower and WC and the other with a bath perfect for soaking aching limbs after a long walk in the fells and a WC. The mature garden has a large lawn and pretty trees, creating a tranquil spot to escape the humdrum of everyday life and making a fantastic playground for four legged visitors. Dine alfresco on the picnic bench, wildlife watching and looking out over the open countryside. There is parking for two cars on the driveway directly outside the cottage.
