Description

Located in the village of Lindale on the southern tip of the Lake District National Park and easily accessible via the M6 and A590; this semi-detached, single storey cottage is ideal for couples wanting a comfortable base from which to explore all that the South Lakes has to offer. Whilst the cottage is fully equipped for self-catering it also has the advantage of being next door to a great pub which serves food. The village also has a Post Office and small local store. A wider range of amenities can be found in the Edwardian seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands, 2 miles, including shops, supermarkets, pubs and cafés. There is also a nice promenade and park, and the surrounding estuary and countryside is a haven for birds and wildlife. You can actually walk through the woods from the cottage into Grange-over-Sands which takes approximately half an hour.

Coniston’s shores are just over 20 minutes drive from 1 Broomhill Cottage and here you can enjoy a quieter lakeside location with the Coniston Fells in sight, and a pier to launch boats.

About the local area

Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel is easily accessible, with its winding streets, pretty cottages, whitewashed houses and medieval buildings leading to the village square. The village offers visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, and eateries.

Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings providing, as they have for centuries, friendly inns, well stocked shops and private dwellings. It is also home to Britain's smallest National Hunt racecourse and the National Trust attraction of Cartmel Priory Gatehouse, a historically important building situated in the heart of the village.

Occupying one of the most attractive spots in the area, Grange-over-Sands looks out across the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, a rich feeding ground for many species of birds that take advantage of the great climate in the area. It is easily accessible from the Lake District (Lake Windermere is only seven miles away) and towns such as Kendal are also just a short drive from here.

There is much to do and see on the Peninsular from golf , horse riding and fishing to hot air ballooning and parachuting! There also a good number of great walks, plus many places of historical interest.
