This is a superb Grade II listed, end-terraced cottage in the Lake District National Park, on the edge of the Lowther Castle Estate. This former workers cottage was built in the 1770s and is situated in a conservation village, designed by the renowned architect Robert Adam, for the 1st Earl of Lonsdale. Set amongst other sandstone cottages, centred around lawned courtyards, the cottage has an abundance of charm and character of its own from its previous history. Crescent Cottage has been carefully furnished and well-equipped to create a particularly appealing and comfortable property for guests. Whilst retaining the authentic feel of this delightful cottage, the owners have used contemporary accents alongside the classic country cottage furnishings, resulting in a stylish home from home. Externally, a pleasant garden area offers space to enjoy the delightful surroundings on warmer days, and creates the ideal spot for a quiet drink after a busy day exploring.
A short distance from the pretty village of Askham, Crescent Cottage is ideally situated for exploring Ullswater, Keswick and enjoying the delights of the northern Lakes. Alternatively, the beautiful Eden Valley is on the doorstep for walks, breathtaking scenery and quaint villages offering Cumbrian hospitality at its finest, with the market town of Penrith just 4 miles away. Lowther model village was said to have been built in order to move the original village, and to improve the view from Lowther Castle. A visitor attraction in itself, the Lowther Estate offers guests a wealth of experiences, including Lowther Castle with its stunning Gothic profile, and the extensive gardens and picturesque grounds running down to the River Lowther. Annual events include The Lowther Show held every August, a family orientated traditional country fair and Kendal Calling, an annual music festival held every July with hundreds of bands. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
