The property

Nook Cottage is a wonderful, detached property situated within the wonderful Lake District National Park, in between Lake Windermere and the market town of Kendal.

This characterful cottage dates back to 1629 and offers a warm and welcoming base for you and your loved ones to return to each evening.

After an action-packed day of exploring the great outdoors, retreat into the sitting room, where a woodburning stove is much welcomed during the winter months, creating a cosy space to flick on the Smart TV and unwind.

Delight in a spot of home-cooking within the country-style kitchen, containing everything you will need for a self-catering holiday, as well as a dishwasher and a washing machine for convenience.

Once dinner is ready, head into the dining room, light up the woodburning stove perfect for spending some quality time with your loved ones as you tuck in, and plan the next day’s adventure.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the staircase to retire to one of the two bedrooms, containing king-size beds, storage and pretty views to admire as you wake up.

During the summer months, look forward to spending time within the garden, by settling down on the chairs and soaking up the sun, with the babbling stream to admire.

Your pets will be delighted by the spacious lawn, whilst the chef of the group can enjoy the vegetable patch, which they are welcome to take from.

If you fancy a special treat one evening, take a stroll to the local pub or venture into the market town of Kendal, where you will find a superb selection of pubs, eateries and cafés to suit the tastes of everyone.

Whilst roaming the cobbled streets, be sure to sample the local delicacies, including the famous Mint Cake for an energy boost.

Brush up on the local history and culture of the town by paying a visit to Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal Castle and Kendal Museum.

Alternatively, visit the nearby attractions of Levens Hall manor house and Lakeland Maze Farm Park, both offering wonderful family days out.

For those feeling adventurous, head to Lake Windermere for some watersport or enjoy one of the many hiking routes within the National Park, including Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.

Whilst here, be sure to spend time within the towns of Ambleside and Windermere, home to a number of historical landmarks including the National Trust property of Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's quaint farmhouse.

Choose this base for an enjoyable stay in the Lake District.

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market 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.
