Overview

About the property

Cottage in Underbarrow, Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Quiet Location, 10 Minutes From Kendal

This cosy three-bedroom cottage has recently been refurbished and offers comfortable accommodation for six people. The oldest parts of Orphan Crag are believed to date from the 17th century, with the property retaining many original features, such as plethora of oak beams. The cottage has been sympathetically refurbished, incorporating a wood burning stove, fully equipped kitchen and cosy dining and living rooms.

Situated in the small village of Underbarrow within the Lake District National Park, Orphan Crag provides an excellent base for exploring the local area, by foot or car. Tucked away at the head of the beautiful Lyth Valley, the property is in an ideal location in which to enjoy the stunning local scenery, as well as providing easy access to the heart of the Lakes.

The village boasts a pub serving excellent food whilst the bustling market town of Kendal, with its many shops, is just a short drive away. There are several other local eateries in the surrounding villages and Staveley, ten minutes drive away, is home to the Hawkshead Brewery. Just a little further and you reach the town of Bowness and Lake Windermere.

About Heather Grover

We live in Nottinghamshire and have three grown up children. We both work and spent most of our spare time in 2014 completely refurbishing the cottage with the help of friends and family. We love walking, and enjoy a good meal out in a local pub or restaurant, and the cottage is perfect for both of these.

Heather Grover purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Heather Grover chose Underbarrow

We wanted to buy a cottage in the Lakes and Orphan Crag ticked all the boxes, being close to the central Lakes area but slightly off the beaten track.

What makes this cottage unique

Orphan Crag is just a few minutes drive from Kendal and a short stroll from an excellent local pub selling good beer and serving excellent food at reasonable prices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had an absolutely fantastic time ... the cottage was beautifully and tastefully decorated and had everything we could have wished for. The views were stunning and the location was perfect, close to all amenities but really peaceful and secluded." Laura

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a cottage in a quiet location. Tastefully renovated, spotlessly clean and everything as advertised. Comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Perfect for access to the tourist spots (without the crowds) and for evening walks along Scout Scar. When the sun shines, it's difficult to fault the lovely Lyth valley. Excellent pubs within walking distance.
