Located in the village of High Newton, just 3 miles from the southern tip of Lake Windermere and close to the popular Cumbrian towns of Cartmel (5 miles) and Grange-over-Sands (4 miles), Lane Cottage, detached, is an ideal base for families and couples wanting to explore the Southern Lake District. Built in 1679, this former weaver’s cottage enjoys a quiet position with lovely views, and offers comfortable and characterful accommodation with all the home comforts guests need. Downstairs is a bright and welcoming living room, the focal point of which is its beautiful original fireplace which houses a wood burner, ideal for those colder winter evenings. There is a spacious and well-equipped kitchen/dining room, which leads into the rear garden.
Within half a mile is Yew Tree Barn Antiques, which also has a great café serving coffee, breakfast and lunches. The village pub is only a 2-minute walk away and also serves food and local ales. There is a bus stop close to the cottage with regular services (X6) into Kendal, Newby Bridge, Ulverston and Grange-over-Sands, meaning you can still explore these popular towns without the hassle of parking. The Morecambe Bay resort of Grange-over-Sands is just 4 miles away and here you will find a good selection of cafés and shops, including a butchers, bakery and greengrocers. It also has a lovely promenade which is perfect for a gentle stroll, and the estuary and surrounding countryside are a haven for flora and fauna, and it is popular with birdwatchers and nature lovers.
Another ‘must visit’, is the pretty village of Cartmel, 5 miles, which has a variety of interesting shops, traditional pubs and coffee shops centred around its main square. The village has several old and interesting buildings including the 12th-century priory and gate house which is now a heritage centre. Well known for its famous sticky toffee pudding and race course, Cartmel is also home to the Michelin starred restaurant ‘L’Enclume’, which has been voted the UK’s best restaurant four years running. Popular places to visit further afield include Bowness-on-Windermere, 10 miles, Kendal, 13 miles, and Ambleside, 16 miles. Grasmere is a 40-minute drive and you can drive to Keswick and the northern Lakes in around an hour. From Newby Bridge, 3 miles, you can take a ferry across Lake Windermere to Bowness or Ambleside. Great for families, Newby Bridge also has the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Families with children will also enjoy a day out at the World of Beatrix Potter attraction at Bowness, 10 miles, a firm favourite with all ages. Of course, the main attraction itself is the Lake District National Park and all the wonderful walking opportunities some of which can be accessed from your front door, especially Cartmel Fell. The area is also great for cyclists, with plenty of cycle routes. Grizedale Forest which is popular with mountain bikers is just 9 miles away or alternatively, why not try a Segway or the Go Ape tree top adventure there. There is also a lovely sculpture trail through the forest. Other activities available nearby include golf and fishing. Shop and restaurant 3 miles, pub 440 yards.

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.
