    “On the good side: 1: Limestone Cottage is in a good location.”


    2: The accommodation was perfect for us. 3: We loved the log burner, it made the house feel very cosy so we had it lit every evening. 4: Thank you for providing binoculars, they were very useful. 5: We loved the games that were provided. 6: There are great pubs close by - the Hare and Hounds in the village and the Wheatsheaf in Brigsteer are a couple of examples. 7: Thank you for providing compost bins. On the down side. Constructive criticism: 1: Please provide recent maps not just geographical ones. 2: Please tidy up the the corner saucepan cupboard. It was such a mess and doesn’t take much time to tidy it up and give a much better impression. I left it as I would like to find it. 3: Clean under the coffee table. When we moved it to give us more room to play Jenga we found quite a selection of items. 4: Providing the number of firelights for each evening would be a good gesture as many guests probably don’t have a log burner at home to use them on. As we are South Africa we didn’t need them as we are experienced in lighting barbecues with kindling and newspaper but I would think most of your guests would use firefighters. 5: Please provide recycling bags like your neighbours 2 doors away. Recycling is very important to us so we ended up taking our recycling items home as I couldn’t bare to put them in your general waste bin. I am aware of the story you gave us about recycling at the cottage but it’s cost saving to have separate recycling bags. 6: I’m sure there’s not much you can do about it but the barking dogs are annoying. Maybe you’ve been renting out Limestone Cottage for a long time but I think these few points would make It even more attractive and delightful.

About the location

Levens is a small traditional Cumbrian village set on a high promontory in beautiful countryside and ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The village has a lovely old church, general store/newsagent and a pub. With excellent views of the southern fells across the Lyth Valley and the River Kent which flows below the village, Levens consists of a huddle of fine, stone-built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. 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. Nearby Kendal 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, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Levens provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
