About Daryl Graham

The property has a special energy which has been enjoyed by many people over the years.

The river, bridges and garden create a special place to relax, replenish and recharge. Sitting by the river, enjoying the sunshine and a glass of wine has been a much enjoyed pleasure.

Why Daryl Graham chose Kendal

Low Jock Scar Country Estate must be one of the area’s best kept secrets. Head just a few miles North of the historic market town of Kendal where the unspoilt Fawcett Forest dips into the Bannisdale Valley and there sits Low Jock Scar. Tucked alongside the banks of Bannisdale Beck where the sound of the babbling Beck creates an athmosphere like no other and captures perfectly the unique charm of this idyllic location. Bannisdlae Bridges – high and low, both listed, – mark the boundary, with the high bridge sitting on the route of Wainwrights Horseshoe walk.

This delightful cluster of properties sits in several acres of mature gardens and woodland where guests are welcome to meander through the colourful grounds and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the location. With the changing seasons the woodland creates an ever-changing environment to be enjoyed. The bluebells create a carpet of blue in late Spring while the glorious colours of Autumn leaves are hard to beat. Guests will be delighted to spot that the grounds are often frequented by a wide variety of birds and wildlife including woodpecker, deer and hares.

Located in the ‘Gateway to The Lakes’ Low Jock Scar provides an ideal base for guests who are looking to explore. Whilst it may be difficult to drag yourselves away from this perfect spot, both The Lakes and Dales are easily accessible. Head East to Sedbergh, Dent and Hawes or West to Windermere and Bowness. Equally within easy reach for a day out are the Northern Lakes with Ullswater and Haweswater less than an hour’s drive.

For guests looking to stay local, walks and cycle routes for all abilities can be found. Just a few miles away, the town of Kendal offers something for everyone. A popular historic market town, Kendal provides a castle, historic buildings and its famous ‘yards’, a riverside setting, shops for all and a great selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants to be enjoyed.

What makes this cottage unique

Low Jock Scar has a very special atmosphere of it's own, feeling well away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life, but within 8 minutes easy drive of the useful pleasant town of Kendal.

Beautiful Cottage with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Butterfly cottage on boxing day 2017. The cottage was beautifully presented with a Christmas tree and even presents under the tree for our children. We had a perfect few days opening presents in front of the log burner. The cottage is set in beautiful grounds and we enjoyed skimming stones down the river and took a lovely walk up the hill to see gorgeous views across the valley. The cottage is equipped with everything we needed and the children said that it felt like home. We look forward to returning later in the year.

We spent New Years Eve in Butterfly cottage and it was a wonderful stay. Cottage was also decorated with Christmas tree which was lovely. Beautiful, bright and modern feel to the cottage. The kitchen and dining area are a great space wth cosy log burner. The bedrooms are spacious with unbelievably comfy beds. Bathrooms are modern with very nice shower to ensuite. A real rural retreat, great for getting away from it all. With Kendal centre and Windermere on the doorstop there’s plenty to do when you want to go out and about. We will definitely be returning.

This is one of the better cottages we have stayed in. The cottage was spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen equipment was very good, plenty of utensils and crockery.

The hosts were on hand but never intrusive.

The property was very beautiful and situated in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short break in this beautiful cottage. It was well furnished and very comfortable. The garden area was in a perfect setting with a lovely area adjacent to the stream to sit and relax. My wife and I have stayed in many cottages throughout the Lake District and also the rest of the UK, and this was definitely one of the best.

I was able to walk from the door to Stavely via the Longsleddale valley, with great views overlooking Kendal and Burneside.

Many thanks, we hope to return very soon.
