A light-filled, single-storey holiday property, perfectly located for exploring the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, and for trips into Kendal and to Lake Windermere.

Book a serene stay at this inviting holiday home in the Lake District village of Staveley, approximately 6 miles from Kendal, and known for its brewery tours. Up to four guests are welcome at the two-bedroom bungalow, which comes with outside relaxation space and bike storage. Head off on walks or cycle rides through beautiful surroundings, including the Kentmere Valley. Venture into the Yorkshire Dales, which begin about 9 miles away. Drive into Kendal to go shopping, dine out and visit the castle. Make your way to Windermere and Bowness, 4 and 5 miles away, to potter in independent shops, buy local provisions and take a cruise out on the water. Hire your own motorboat or go canoeing here too.

Open the door to this refurbished holiday home to find beautifully finished accommodation to spread out into. Discover an airy, open-plan lounge/diner that will quickly become the heart of your temporary home. Light the wood burner, switch on the Smart TV or choose a DVD to watch. Head through to the kitchen, with its electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher, to whip up some tasty treats then carry dinner through to the dining table to enjoy together. Grab a few moments to yourself with a cup of coffee at the breakfast bar in the kitchen. You also have a snug, with another TV, for people to unwind in, and this opens into a conservatory with doors on to the garden. Both bedrooms at the property are immaculately decorated; a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room and WC and another king-size with zip-and-link bed, which can be arranged as two small singles if preferred. The family bathroom is also close by; this has a bath, with shower above and WC.

Enjoy the lovely wildlife garden from the comfort of the conservatory. Store bicycles in the garage. There is parking for two cars at the house.

Very large bungalow with more than sufficient room for four people although parking for two large cars would be difficult. Bungalow was very well appointed and a real home from home.

A lovely stay in a very spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean property. Good location for walks from Kentmere and surrounding valleys also Windermere/Ambleside etc. Recommend the Eagle & Child pub in the village for food and drink-a 10 min walk from the property.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
