About the accommodation

The cottage was built in 1750 as a small holding. It is one of a number of similar properties mixed in with modern bungalows, overlooking the Lythe Valley with views of the Lake District mountains across the valley.

The cottage is situated in a small hamlet 3/4 mile from Levens village and 6 miles south of Kendal on the fringe of the English Lake District. it is easily reached from the M6 motorway and the Kendal link road, being approximately 1.6 miles from latter.

The nearest village, Levens, is just 15 minutes walk away and consists of a Post Office, Hairdressers and a General Store selling newspapers in addition to general provisions. There is a Public House, the Hare & Hounds, a further 5 minutes walk from the village and two further Public Houses within two miles of the cottage. Bar meals are available at these Public Houses.

Levens is served by a local bus service, but as the service is infrequent a car is essential to get the best out of the area. The nearest town is Kendal, a typical market town. On the outskirts of Kendal can be found two supermarkets, one at either end of the town.

The stone built cottage stands in its own grounds, completely fenced off and although it is situated in a quiet position it is not isolated. There is sufficient space within the grounds to accommodate two medium sized cars.
