Description

Set out over three floors, you enter Meadow View on the first floor into a spacious living/dining room, and downstairs on the ground floor there’s a large kitchen with dining table and a utility room with separate toilet. On the top floor are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and a bathroom with shower cubicle, separate bath and toilet. Parking for one car is in front of the cottage.

Levens is a pretty village at the gateway to the Lake District National Park, and is easily accessible from the M6 and A590. Meadow View is an 18th-century, terraced cottage overlooking the largest field in Westmorland with views to the Yorkshire Dales and the Bowland Fells. It’s close to the church, local pub which is popular for its food and just a short walk from the village shop.

Close at hand is the osprey sanctuary of Foulshaw Moss. A short drive and you’ll find Cartmel, a traditional Cumbrian village with its 12th-century priory, racecourse and famed sticky toffee pudding. If visiting the coast is of interest, why not head to the popular Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands with its parks and cafés, Roanhead Beach near Ulverston, the limestone cliffs at Humphrey Head or the Arnside and Silverdale Peninsula?

Within easy driving are the popular Lakeland towns of Windermere, Ambleside and Coniston, and Kirby Lonsdale is less than 20 minutes’ away at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The nearby town of Kendal also has plenty to offer with shops, restaurants, museums, a golf course, leisure centre with swimming pool and the renowned Brewery Arts Centre.
Offering something for everyone, Meadow View is a fantastic base from which to explore all that this beautiful part of the country has to offer. Beach 7 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

About the local area

Situated to the South of the Lake District, and only a short drive from the sea, Kendal is especially well placed to cater for everyone's holiday needs. Kendal is often seen as the Southern gateway to the Lake District, being only around nine miles from Windermere and around 30 miles from Keswick.

The other lakes are all within an hour or two's travelling by car from the town, as are locations for walks and rambles, both gentle and demanding. The town is home to a fine selection of shopping arcades, can boast two castles, two museums, a host of historical buildings and bridges, fine restaurants, a multitude of public houses, and views that would please the most demanding photographer including the nearby ruin of Kendal Castle.

The pleasant Lakeland village of Underbarrow lies to the west of the town of Kendal and sits at the foot of Helsington Barrow, a limestone ridge rising to around 700 feet. Underbarrow stands at the centre of a network of roads linking Kendal to Crosthwaite in the Lyth Valley, Newby Bridge and Ulverston and the village of Crook to Levens making it idea to explore all the surrounding areas with ease.

Further west is the small village of Crosthwaite which is an ideal point from which to explore the Windermere and South Lakes area and, with walks right from the door, it will please keen walkers and hikers.
