    “The inside of the property was very clean, however the outside left much to be desired.”

    The outer porch was dusty and dirty, the areas with stones were weedy and there re weds growing by the front door. The roses on the front need a trim. The windows need a clean. It’s a great pity that the first impressions of the cottage are spoilt for a few minutes work to tidy up the outside.

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.

The nearest pub is in Barrows Green, 2 miles away and Kendal has a wealth of shops, bars, restaurants and attractions to keep the family entertained after a busy day sightseeing. Hawthorn Cottage is all on one level and sits in an idyllic position on the banks of St Sunday's Beck and is a newly built stone cottage full of character.

The traditional Cumbrian cottage with vaulted beamed ceilings and wood burning stove has been furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard to ensure you have a relaxing stay no matter what the weather outside.

The garden overlooks the babbling river and is an area our guests long to return to after a days exploring to unwind whilst watching the local wildlife including kingfishers, dippers and woodpeckers.

About the location


Kendal 4.5 miles;

Sedgwick is a small, quiet village approx 4.5 miles south of Kendal. 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.
