Cartmel 3.1 miles.
Glendene is a charming, end-of-terrace cottage situated in the sleepy village of High Newton, three and half miles from Cartmel in the Lake District.
Set over two floors, this wonderful cottage welcomes families looking to break away from their normal routines and explore the South Lakes and the seaside.
After a day of walking, look forward to relaxing in the sitting room, enhanced with an alluring woodburning stove and flatscreen TV.
Wander into the traditionally styled country kitchen, perfectly equipped with all you could need for a self-catered break, while the centre dining table offers ample seating for family mealtimes; gather with your loved ones amidst and toast to a wonderful Lake District break over a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal.
Upstairs plays host to three wonderful bedrooms, including two king-size bedrooms and a twin, which can be arranged as a king-size on request.
Start each morning in the bathroom with a brisk shower or return here after a long day to enjoy a warm bubble bath.
The south-facing garden is a real sun trap and offers the perfect spot for lunch or an alfresco meal in the evening, while the enclosed nature of the garden allows pets and children to roam safely.
You can walk to the nearby village of Cartmel through open countryside along a footpath close to the cottage.
Cartmel is home to the famous sticky toffee pudding, an array of excellent gastro pubs and the award-winning L’Enclume restaurant.
There is also the impressive 12th century priory overlooking the UK’s smallest racecourse, which draws visitors in the spring and summer months.
Close by is the elegant town of Grange-over-Sands, home to an Edwardian selection of shops including a chocolatier and a railway station where you can take trips up the coastline, or set off to the southern tip of Lake Windermere at Newby Bridge and catch the magnificent steam cruise to Ambleside and Bowness, which has The World of Beatrix Potter amongst many attractions.
Glendene is the ultimate escape for exploring the delights of the Southern Lakelands.
