    • “A stunning little hideaway. We went to see in the New Year and couldn't be happier with our choice. Beautifully decorated inside and out in an idyllic location beside a bubbling stream. Very helpful neighbours, lots of walks and bike rides on your doorstep. All the modern facilities you need inside a beautiful cottage. Toasty warm inside with a log burner for those winter nights. Very tempted to change the locks and stay forever”

    • “Great cottage lovely location for exploring Cumbria and the surrounding areas . Would note that the write up states Local pub and shop 5 minute walk, which is incorrect you have to drive . Apart from that great time”

    Mr King, Sutton, September 2018

    • “The cottage was like home from home, we had everything we needed, the neighbours were very friendly and helpful, would difinatly recommend to others”

    Mrs Bourke, Hockley, June 2018

    • “Although the cottage is nice, the experience was spoiled by what we felt was very poor customer support. For example, we stay in a lot of cottages and this was one of the first times we'd not been provided with a welcome 'hamper' on arrival. Not even a pint of milk. There was only one teabag in caddy. No file of information telling us about the cottage (e.g. no info about WiFi password, how the heating works, how the council's bin collection system works, how recycling works, where good pubs/restaurants are, where local shops are). Cottage was generally clean but awful gaps in vigilance. For example loads of big cobwebs in kitchen rafters and around skirting boards in kitchen. Why doesn't anyone cleaning the kitchen fail to look up or down once in a while and see these? They are so glaringly easy to see. Overall disappointing.”

    Mr Pearson, Middlesbrough, September 2018

The Property

This ground floor cottage is newly built with vaulted ceilings, exposed oak beams, wood burning stove and garden overlooking the river. Idyllically located for a relaxing holiday at any time of year away from the hustle and bustle of the main Lake District villages but with easy access to Kendal and Lake Windermere and to explore the whole of Cumbria, Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire.
Stainton is located 5 miles south of Kendal and only a few minutes drive from the M6 motorway, making this an ideal base for those who wish to explore the delights of the Lake District and Cumbria. Kendal and Lake Windermere are both within an easy drive, the Eden Valley, Hadrian's Wall, Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire can all be easily accessed via the motorway. Stainton was built on the site of an old roman settlement and there is a feel of time standing still, the Packhorse bridge and Stainton bridge date back considerable years.

A historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
