Description

A pretty, stone-built, 300-year old, semi-detached cottage, located in a quiet backwater of the Lakeland village of Levens, just five miles from Kendal. Boasting lovely views across the Lyth Valley and Whitbarrow Scar, this Levens cottage provides ideal Lakeland accommodation. Warm and welcoming, it features a comfortable sitting room with cosy woodburner and old beams, an adjoining dining area, a well-equipped kitchen and two lovely bedrooms which all combine to provide perfect Lake District accommodation. Outside, this Levens cottage offers a spacious, raised garden area ideal for dining alfresco and watching the sun go down over the southern Lakeland Fells. This Levens cottage is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District Peninsula. The lovely old market town of Kendal is a short drive away, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit. In the other direction, Kirkby Lonsdale has numerous eating places and individual shops. Lake Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead are within easy reach. This attractive village and lovely Levens cottage make an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
Levens is a small village in Cumbria, home to Levens Hall with its famous topiary garden. Levens has amenities including a pub, post office, newsagents and general store. Perfectly placed for enjoying the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian coast.

‘This was a very spacious and modern cottage that had been really well renovated. Situated in the very centre of Crantock village, it was very easy for us to walk down to the beach nearby - less than five minutes walk. The SW coast path was also easily accessible from the road and the beach entrance which takes you towards Poly Joke and beyond. I would definitely want to come back here to explore further. There are so many things to do and see, not least for the water sports and wildlife watching! The house is ideal for a big group. Thank you for our stay!’

‘The cottage was peaceful, clean and well equipped. The owners, although living next door, were helpful but not intrusive. The cottage is well placed for all the local attractions, and the pub serves excellent food at all hours, and is family friendly. Should the occasion arise, we would have no hesitation in staying at The Orchard again.’

‘What a fantastic place to stay for a family holiday. We all agreed, that's 7 adults the properties we hired the Barn next door for a couple of friends were ideal. My daughter thought it was like a home from a glossy mag. Well equipped we needed nothing. We had good weather for mid September and picnicked out on the patio area, my 15month grand daughter had a great time with the toys in the huge conservatory. We cannot praise the property enough. Will return. Crantock is like are second home.’

‘What a great little cottage in a quiet peaceful location which is just what we were looking for after a very hectic few months at home. So relaxing and peaceful that we wished we had booked to stay longer. The welcoming gift of a cake and materials to make drinks was most appreciated. I think we will most certainly consider the cottage again next year sometime.’

‘Stunning weather which obviously helped made our week long stay absolutely perfect, the Post Office/ store was well stocked and next door, the beach was breathtaking and totally un-spoilt with clear blue water within 5 mins walk. Lovely light bright house with great enclosed private garden, though the Patio needed a weeding especially around the fab hot tub which did spoil the look slightly but that's my only negative comment, the rest of the house was fab and master suite was perfect. Would definitely go back to this great dog friendly house and village again.’

‘This lovely little cottage was a real find in a small village. Location just off the M6, but far enough away not to be bothered by it. Allowed access to all areas of the Lake District, a wonderful location. The locals were very friendly, as were the owners who made us very welcome, nothing was to much trouble for them. We found that the BT hub didn't work but they were in communications with BT for a resolution. We also felt that having to leave at 10am, was a little early but otherwise no other complaints, a truly lovely little place. We would definitely visit again.’

‘What a delightful little cottage, with absolutely all the amenities one could wish for, plus a host and hostess who couldn't do enough for us. The welcome cake and drinks were the icing on the cake. Location was fantastic, with so many activities and attractions within minutes of the cottage. Even the trip up to Beatrix Potter's home was not a long drive. Very happy to recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice little bolt hole".’

‘This house is very recently renovated. Modern, clean, well-appointed, great beds, very usable kitchen, lovely finishes. The back garden is a treat - you can't tell that you have any neighbors beyond the flowerbeds, even though the house is directly in the center of the village and 50 feet from the grocery and under a minute walk to a couple of decent pubs. It was perfect for an extended family of 5 adults, 5 children and a few dinner guests. Very child-friendly with a stair gate and a closet full of toys, though some of the walls and stairs outside required vigilance. Crantock was well situated as well, near a number of child-friendly amenities like a steam railway, a surprisingly enjoyable zoo and a demonstration farm for kids. The nearby beach was a 10 minute hilly walk or 1 minute car ride. Please note that I had perfect weather for 7 days, which might have biased my impressions.’
