This two bedroom cottage sleeping five set above Arnside offers lovely views across the Lake District Fells. Set on a high promontory above the Lakeland town of Arnside, this semi detached cottage is a ten minute walk from the pier and amenities of the village. The character of the cottage is enhanced by beautiful African mahogany floors and the hand crafted fixtures and fittings throughout, including 'secret' cupboards and jewellery boxes, offering a unique holiday base. With a woodburner, cast iron bath, a double room and a family room offering a king-size double and single bed, the cottage will suit families, couples or friends looking to... explore the region. A spacious garden is the ideal spot for a BBQ, and both the Lakes and the Dales are an easy drive.

Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: Set wonderfully on the southernmost tip of the Lake District, Arnside village lies in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodland make up the attractive surrounding landscape, forming an ideal and interesting backdrop for a walking or cycling break. Reminders of Arnside's past as a fishing port can be found in the beautiful pier and port area of the village, with wonderful views across the Kent Estuary. To the south of the village, 15th Century Peel Towers, constructed to defend the settlement against marauding Scots, still stand. One mile away, the Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve is a great destination for bird-watchers, nature lovers or simply those looking to relax. The Lake District, Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland are all within easy driving distance.

really nice cosy cottage backing onto woods and with views from
Left on 06/21/2013 for a stay in April 2012 | Simon
I stayed here with my partner and our young children, its very clean and well looked after, has all the facilities you need for a few days break. A very homely cottage!
Has a DVD player and a few games, books etc.; it has a sky box that doesn't work - free view channels only. Washing machine, dishwasher, great kitchen.
Out the back of the cottage is a small garden and the forest with a path directly leading into the local woods and hills. The woods are also useful for gathering firewood for the real fireplace in the living room which is very cosy and a great feature.
Its about a 20 minute walk into the centre of arnside, or 2 Minutes in the car. Its about 45 minutes drive to Windermere and 60mins to ambleside so you are very close to all the Lakeland attractions.
There is a steep hill leading up to the cottage from one direction, but you can avoid it by coming around a different way.
Bedrooms have plenty of storage and we easily fitted our three kids into the big upstairs room, with loads of play space for their toys. The downstairs double bedroom is well equipped with wardrobes and comfy - the décor is a bit "countryside" and chinzy but perfectly adequate. What are you waiting for? Go book it!

The property was very clean, tidy and well presented on arrival. Everything you needed was there, including a small intro pack and a small selection of leaflets. The property was up a step hill, which meant you had a wonderful view out over the fields and the area was extremely quiet and peaceful. The house was compact, but adequate and had all the amenities you required. The stairs up to the bedroom were very steep and slippy at times and the lack of a proper shower facility was at times difficult. There were shops, pubs and cafes within a 2minute drive or a 20 minute walk of the property looking out over a lake/ estuary. It was a great place to tour the lakes from and Windermere was beautiful and places along the lake were great, especially the visitor centre. Overall it was a great place to stay and visit and we would definetly go back.
Our wonderful lakeland holiday
Left on 10/20/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | M Cronie
A simply wonderful and relaxing location. It was a the top of a steep hill but that didn't worry us. The cottage was lovely, comfortable and well equipped. Only negative would be the lack of a proper shower (shower tap on bath). Lots of info on the surrounding area and found lots of places to visit. Arnside is quite but well placed for touring. The local pub grub was very good. All in all we had a great holiday.

Good peacefull area. Direct access into wood at rear - usefull for dog owners. Good size rooms and well layed out property. Everything provided that you might need. Saw two deer in rear garden during stay. Pity no shower above bath. Driveway might be tight on width if you have a large car. Good access to Arnside and surrounding area.
Comfortable house in quiet location with nice garden.Lovely area with really good public transport and lots ofwalking opportunities.
Beautiful holiday home
Left on 11/15/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Jan Bailey
Excellent service, polite and helpful. Prompt in sorting holiday stay. Loved the holiday home. Excellent condition, comfortable and very clean. Lovely gardens. Beds comfortable. Lovely friendly neighbours.
Fantastic scenery and views. Not far from local amenities, handy for plenty of destinations. Leaflets and information in cottage. Gave a good picture for the lake district.
Liked everything, the only problem was that there were no sockets in the downstairs bedroom! Were pet friendly!
Gateway to beautiful countryside
Left on 11/07/2010 for a stay in September 2010 | CLM
Located on a quiety but hilly housing estate, the house was ideal because the back garden led onto a public footpath and spinney - ideal for the pet Labrador. The house itself is quirky in that a craftsperson has carved cupboards, built wooden hidey-holes, made skirting boards, flooring and even curtain-rails. It was obviously someone's lifelong work.
South Cumbria held many surprises for us - we didn't have to travel far to find wonderful landscapes and walks, much enjoyed by alfie the Lab. We delighted in the pretty village of Cartmel where surely the best sticky toffee pudding in the world is on sale, and Grange on Sands is worth a visit for childhood memories of a typical seaside resort from bygone days. .

Lovely property, very cosy and clean with big comfy beds. Great enclosed garden for our dog. Furnished beautifully and in a great location for the Lakes and Trough of Bowland. Would definitely return.
