This recently renovated family home has been refurbished in 2020 to a very good standard while keeping some of the existing features such as original wooden flooring. There is an open fire in the cosy dining room, where you get the feel of being in a traditional Cumbrian cottage, or you can relax in the sitting room in front of the wood burner. The three double bedrooms have fantastic views, and the beds are of a good standard to ensure you get a great nights’ sleep. Unlimited Wi-Fi and a selection of maps, books and games are provided for guests to enjoy. Sit back and relax in the beautiful tiered garden whilst watching the sunset with a glass of your favourite tipple. Make use of the landscaped patio for outdoor dining or retreat to the pub, literally across the road, where a warm welcome and good food will await you.
The property is set in the sleepy village of Allithwaite, just under 2 miles from Grange-over-Sands. The neighbouring village of Cartmel, with its 12th-century priory and racecourse, is also just under 2 miles away.
Dunmail House is the ideal holiday home for visiting the Lake District National Park, as you are not far from any of the main routes to take you around the Lakes, and Lake Windermere is only 9 miles away. Other nearby places include Holker Hall, Sizergh Castle, Grizedale Forest and the Lakeland Motor Museum. Kendal, Bowness and Windermere are 30 minutes away.
The limestone outcrop of Humphrey Head and its nature reserve, where the last wolf in England was allegedly seen in 1390, is just under 2 miles away. It offers a tranquil circular walk taking in the stunning views and returning through a picturesque wood where wildlife is abundant. Skydiving Northwest is in Flookburgh, 2½ miles away, and Grange-over-Sands offers golfing. Cycle trails such as the Cartmel Cycle Loop are popular. Train links provide services to Kents Bank, Grange-over-Sands, Arnside, Silverdale (for RSPB Leighton Moss), Ulverston, for its market town with cobbled streets and appealing shops, and Lancaster, for its busy, student vibe. There is a village shop ¼ mile away and Grange-over-Sands has a wide range of amenities, along with the promenade and ornamental gardens. Whether you enjoy biking, hiking, water sports or shopping, or simply taking in the magnificent scenery of mountains and lakes, Dunmail House is an ideal location to achieve all of this. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
