    “The cottage was immaculately presented with towels, super clean bedding and a fireplace ready to simply flick a match.”

    There were a large range of herbal teas and hot chocolate sachets in the kitchen, and the bathroom also had sachets of various essentials. The garden was nice and safe for our dog, although to get him back inside we had to lay towels (brought from home) on the cream carpets in the living room to avoid muddy paw prints everywhere. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need, but the knives were very poor, so I would advice to bring your own chopping knives if you enjoy cooking as much ...

I only have one minor complaint really - the hot water is extremely hot. Like, scolding hot! So if you have children, you will have to watch them carefully when using the taps. Otherwise, pretty much everything seemed to have been well thought through, from torches, maps, guide books of the Lake District, DVD's and games... The cottage was also very well heated, with every room having temperature regulated radiators, easy to adjust for each room. Heated towel rails were also a very welcome addition. Lastly, I normally suffer from terrible allergies from hotel bedding and a chesty cough from carpets and so on, but I didn't have to take a single allergy tablet in this cottage, which came as a surprise!

About the location

UNDERBARROW

Kendal 5 miles; Windermere 7.5 miles.

Underbarrow is a quiet, pretty Lakeland village close to the historic market town of Kendal and within reach of the wonderful Lake Windermere. The village has a pub and is ideally placed for exploring southern Lakeland and the Lake District National Park. Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, both with fine gardens, are nearby, and Kendal has much to offer in terms of shopping and is quite lively culturally, thanks to the Brewery Arts Centre and the Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Museum, which is widely recognised as one of the best in the region. Also worth a visit is the ruin of Kendal Castle, which was formerly the home of Katherine Parr, and there’s plenty to see and do with Grange-over-Sands, Cartmel, Ulverton, Bowness, Ambleside and even the Yorkshire Dales National Park within driving distance. Underbarrow is a lovely base for exploring the area.
