About Carol McKendrick

Carol moved to Sandside in 2001, when she bought her home Rollen Court having renovated properties before she extended her home and when the opportunity came she purchased Carr Bank cottage in 2009 she lovingly renovated and extended the property maintaining and adding many the limestone features that blend into the area. Which is what brought Carol to the area where she enjoys walks in and around the surrounding area (which is an area quite undersold as a walking area). Carol continues with a variety of projects as well as managing the Holiday Cottage projects such as dry stone walling, gardening and garden design.

Carol McKendrick purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Carol McKendrick chose England

I bought the property because it is situated in a quiet hamlet and offerred so much charm and calm in a way that is difficult to explain with words having experienced it since moving to Carr Bank a decade ago.

It's away from the crowds but near to Arnside and Sandside its popular with walkers, Ramblers bird watchers and cyclist offering pleasent scenary and numerous walks, you can choose woodland, meadow and seaside walks all rolled into one single day out.

Arnside,Silverdale, Grange over Sands, Kendal and Windamere have their own distinct attractions, features and facinations.

The area is popular for birdwatchers boasting Leighton Moss 10 Mins away with the RSPB Cafe and shop yards away.

There are a number of Golf clubs in range Silverdale, Kendal, Grange (2) Bentham.

What makes this cottage unique

Away from the crowds, peace and tranquility and a loving place to come home to.

Great location & very high standard.

  • 5 of 5

Carr Bank Holiday cottage, we are regular visitors to the Lake district and came across the cottage in 2012, when possible we have stayed here since. Our last stay was for 4 nights from 16/01/16. The cottage is excellent, spacious and homely. All the facilities were first class, immaculately clean and in good working order. Carol the owner is very friendly with lots of helpful advice on things to do places to see, walks in the area. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is excellent for travelling to all parts of the lake district and locally the surrounding area is great with close-by supermarkets and little shops. We went with our twin girls who loved the underfloor heating. We would definitely return in the future and would recommend to any families or couples looking for a good base in the area.

Fantastic 3 years of family get togethers

  • 5 of 5

On 3 separate occasions for the last 3 years me and my family have booked to come to this fantastic part of the country, with out standing views and a host that could have not been more helpful if she had tried. We will be coming back for the years to come and would recommend it to anyone. The occasions I have come have been for various family get togethers and have always come along with my elderly grandparents, who like myself enjoy every aspect of the cottage, the layout is perfect with rooms of a great size, the living room although upstairs it doesn't matter as you have a bathroom upstairs too, so you don't have to venture away from he lovely view. With comfy furniture and a log burner for the winter you really could just lock yourself away for the week and no need go out. We have already provisionally booked our next stay and would recommend the cottage and Carol to anyone looking for a nice, quiet time away or even a small family gathering!!!

Look North to Kent Estuary and Coniston Fells

  • 5 of 5

Carr Bank Cottage is highly recommended and extremely spacious.

The split level kitchen/dining area is well appointed and boasts a huge table to seat eight people. The beds are extremely comfortable and upstairs there is a huge lounge with panoramic views of the River Kent Estuary and Coniston Fells.Everything is provided for a relaxing stay and is immaculately presented and maintained. Its position gives easy access to the popular South Lakes honeypots and further north now that the flood damaged A591 road has reopened. There is a good choice of restaurants, pubs and takeaways and Kendal is only 10 miles away for the Brewery Arts Centre which has cinema, theatre and musical events. Highly recommended.
