A delightful, semi-detached cottage tucked away in the Lyth Valley, Barrow Tenement offers guests a well presented, spacious house, next to the owner’s home, in a charming hamlet between Kendal and Windermere. The setting for the cluster of rural properties couldn’t be prettier, amid picturesque countryside with walks for all abilities from the doorstep. Barrow Tenement has been a much loved family home for many years and now offers guests a particularly comfortable base from which to make the most of all that the area has to offer.
Full of charm, the cottage is well-equipped and beautifully presented, with a modern kitchen open to a living/dining area with the wood burner creating a cosy place to spend time with friends and family. A sitting room on the first floor helps make the cottage ideal for family groups of different generations or friends who will appreciate a room to chat away from the television. To the first floor the character of the cottage is fully evident with beamed ceilings and cottage windows offering views of the countryside. Externally, a good sized front terrace opens on to the lawn, where neighbouring chickens might pop over the wall to say hello!
Membership for the local hotel leisure facilities is also included for all guests where there is a swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The Lyth Valley is a glorious area for walkers and cyclists to enjoy. Just a short drive away from the peace and quiet guests can pop in to the historic market town of Kendal or much loved Windermere and Bowness nearby. Kendal, sitting on the River Kent offers something for everyone, including culture, history, an eclectic mix of retailers and a wealth of cafés and international restaurants. A few miles away, Lake Windermere offers steamer rides across the lake and the traditional Lakeland villages that dot its shores. Both Bowness and Windermere are able to offer a good selection of independent retailers, pavement cafés and traditional inns. Likewise, the many hamlets and villages in the area offer visitors a glimpse into Lakeland life and a choice of walks – glorious fell routes or picturesque riverside rambles, the choice is yours.
