Area Once an important medieval market town, the settlement of Milnthorpe is located in the southern Lake District between Kendal and Carnforth. Just a few miles from the seaside village of Arnside, evidence of Milnthorpe's history can still be found amongst the narrow lanes and historic buildings, illustrating a time before the motor car. Set in lovely rolling countryside, the area also offers many great outdoor activities including the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis with its tropical hall and butterfly house. Dallam Tower and Levens Hall - both of which are historic stately homes with deer parks, topiary and ornamental gardens - provide a great day out for visitors. Other excellent attractions include Leighton Hall, Sizergh Castle, the Great Lakes Aquarium, Windermere and Grizedale Forest – all of which are located within easy reach.
Region Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Lovely cosy cottage. Spotlessly clean (much appreciated in the current circumstances). Owner very friendly and helpful. Biscuits, Milk and juice on our arrival Everything you could wish for at the cottage. Good base for the Southern Lakes. Highly recommended.
This was one of the best equipped self catering accommodation we have stayed in.. So much attention to details which made our visit very comfortable.
Lovely cosy cottage.. Owner very friendly and helpful. Orange juice, milk and biscuits left for us as a welcome gift. Spotlessly clean (much appreciated during this time). Geat beds. Home from home.

The cottage had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing holiday.. There were biscuits, milk and orange juice waiting for us, comfy beds for a good nights sleep, two good showers, easy to use appliances and plenty of cooking utensils.
We will definitely book to return to Greystones soon.
Delia was very helpful and was available for any queries that we had.. The location was very handy for the southern lakes and Lancaster. The cottage was warm and cosy and fitted our needs. We were travelling as four adults and two children 8 & 6 plus a dog.
There was a nice touch in that we arrived to find two pints of milk and orange juice in the fridge. The nearest town was about 5 miles away so we made sure we were stocked up.
If we are looking to visit the area again we would look to returning to this cottage.
Gorgeous, cosy holiday cottage.. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Really good use was made of the space and, although a small cottage, it was perfect for us & we didn’t feel cramped (3 adults & 2 young teenagers). The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and there was a really thoughtful welcome gift of goodies on arrival (tea, milk, biscuits etc). The location was handy for visiting both the southern Lakes & Yorkshire Dales. Loved our stay, wish it had been longer & I hope we get to return soon!
This is an outstandingly well maintained cottage.. The owners have thought of every extra you may need from a large selection of board games to varied selection of dvds. The cottage is very well equipped, warm, clean and the outside area secure if you have brought your dog. On arrival we found the owners had left us a free welcome pack of a bottle of wine, chilled juice, a bottle of milk and a box of biscuits. They had even put up a small tree and some Christmas decorations as we were staying over the Christmas period.
Fantastic cottage with everything you could think of to hand.. lovely hosts
The cottage is brilliantly located south of Kendal - rural setting with very easy access to motorway and main roads to other parts of Lake District.. The cottage is part of a barn conversion, which has been done to a very high standard with accommodation over 3 floors. The cottage was very clean and well kitted out for self catering - with the most being made of the relatively small spaces. Plenty of things to do locally - and a great base for walking both in the Lakes and further south in Arnside/Silverside. Would return to both the area and the cottage.
This was our first time visiting this area of the country and we were not disappointed.. So much to see and do in and around the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Greystones was a beautiful converted old thrashing barn, located in a lovely quiet lane, with plenty of dog walking areas on your doorstop.
My family had a fantastic holiday here.
Excellent accommodation which provides a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the country.. The cottage provides everything you need for you to enjoy your stay. Very dog friendly and with the Lancaster canal very close by long off lead walks are possible. The cottage is only a few minutes off the M6 and equidistant to Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. The lovely owners live nearby and are very helpful. Overall a true home from home and I will definitely return.
The owners of Greystones were very friendly and helpful and the location of the cottage is great for exploring Cumbria and the Lake District.. Be aware that this is a snug cottage for six and in order to all eat at the table some rearrangement of furniture is needed. For most of our stay there was just four of us so not really a problem!
This was our second stay at Greystones and we will be booking again! A very spacious and welcoming cottage - spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The beautiful Kendal to Lancaster Canal is literally on your doorstep for miles of off-lead walking, and the stunning South Lakes are moments away by car. So much to offer for a family break and lots of local information to hand.
A real home from home for our family of five.. The location is perfect and the cottage well equipped and spotlessly clean. Delia and her family are on hand if you need them and gave us a very warm welcome on arrival. I thoroughly recommend this cottage for dog walkers - the Kendal to Lancaster canal is literally on your doorstep and the stunning South Lakes moments away by car. So much to offer for a family getaway. This was our second visit to Greystones and our third experience of booking through Sykes and we will most definitely be booking again!
Greystone is a well equipped and presented cottage with excellent facilities and access to road network.. We had a great time and found the location ideal for our needs. The only draw back from our point of view was the living accommodation which we felt was cramped for the five of us, however this would not deter us from staying here again.
Just returned from a week stay with friends joining ourselves for a couple of nights. Lovely clean well equipped cottage over 3 floors. Lovely bedding and towels, lovely warm accommodation.
Thoughtful touch with the goodie pack when we arrived much appreciated from our hosts. Thank you. Gated area large enough for 2 cars and secure to let our dog outside. Nice walks close by for our morning walk before we set off to explore the area. Close to Kendal easy reach for with Windermere and national trust venues. We have managed to have a good week weather wise . would recommend to families or couples we loved it. Thanks again for letting us stay at your lovely cottage.
Very nice location and good landlords.. Really enjoyed the holidays.
Very comfortable cottage in a great location for the lakes and the dales.. The cottage is like a home from home with everything needed for a family break.
We had a great stay at Greystones, there where 3 of us and the dog. When we arrived we had a warm welcome off the owner, who couldn't have done enough for us. There was milk, bread,biscuits and other goodies provided, which was a nice thoughtful thing to do.
The accommodation was on three floors which was a bedroom and shower room with wc on the bottom floor, the middle floor was the kitchen/diner/lounge which was big enough for a large family. The top floor had another two bedrooms and shower/wc room.
As holiday accommodation goes this must be rated high for self catering, I have stayed in a few and this rates as one of the best I have stayed in.
There are supermarkets not to far away in Kendal and Milnthorpe, with a local shop and bakery closer. There are plenty of nice eating places nearby, most are dog friendly to. It's not just the Lake District close by, your not to far from the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian coast.
Last minute booking.
So happy that I found this cottage! You couldnt ask for anything else. Plenty of parking. The owners were fantastic and Very friendly and helpful. Only to happy to help. Lot's of small touches that show how caring the owners are and how the extra mile.
Milk,fruit and biscuits were placed in kitchen.
Was nice to find washing up liquid, tablets for dish washer and tabs for washing machine.
Plenty of towels.
Lovely outside area.
Lovely area. Saw lot's of rabbit's.
Would definitely go back.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
This is a lovely cottage which has everything you could ask for. The parking facilities are brilliant. The owners are lovely and more than happy to help any way they can. Lots of little extras which shows how much the owners care. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and I hope to return.
The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable stay; all new furnishings, spotlessly clean, finishing touches, every detail was included. Situated in a peaceful location, very quiet. The owners were very helpful and we would definitely recommend the property to friends and family. We would love to return one day.
I would unhesitatingly recommend this property, it was fantastic on every level.
We had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this convenient property to anyone visiting the local area. The property was comfortable, spacious and extremely clean. The owners were very friendly and we loved chatting with them.
The cottage was beautiful I didn't want to leave. I was really pleased with everything had a very good holiday. The owner and there family were very friendly and helpful.
The cottage was amazing. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Without any doubt the nicest cottage we have ever stayed at.
Can't praise this place enough. Even though its 'self catering' when we arrived they'd popped some fresh milk, coffee, fruit and biscuits in ready to get us set up. The whole cottage was immaculate throughout - the devil is in the detail and little touches like a big draw full of DVDs kept our 2 small boys entertained in the evenings... They also really appreciated the 'night lights' in the hallways that came on in evenings too! The facilities inside all felt top quality and we weren't left needing for anything, it comfortably slept 6 of us. The lady who ran the cottage was lovely and really keen to make sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay. 5 stars, highly recommended!
Excellent property well positioned to explore the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales.
nice people and super location. The apartment was fine in all ways.
Greystones is lovely and the way it is set out is very good, 3 floors - Bedrooms top and bottom and kitchen diner/ Lounge in between, A lovely couple run it and they are close enough to solve any problems but leave you to enjoy your holiday. I would recommend this to anyone.
Good location for walks and sightseeing. Very close to road connections in the region; but still felt rural and quiet. We were made to feel most welcome by our host and found her to be very helpful. Cottage was lovely and very comfortable. Milton was a very picturesque hamlet; although driving down the narrow country lanes was a bit daunting at first, we soon got used to it and sussed out when best to avoid other road users. We were fortunate to enjoy wonderful weather, so made good use of it through day trips and scenic walks and really did not have time to visit any of the big house attractions or museums in the area. Good base for visiting the Southern Lakes and surrounding area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Greystones and would recommend it highly to anyone wanting a pastoral location in the Lake District.
Plenty of places to explore around the area. The property was new, comfortable and modern. The owner and family were lovely.
