My son and I had a short break at Strawberry Cottage and loved every minute. The location is great - just out of Kendal with amazing views. The cottage was beautifully equipped and very cosy. The incline up the drive was steeper than expected - but this is the Lakes.. Read more

The accommodation is first class. exceptionally clean and well furnished, although the settee was a bit low for elderly or people with back problems. Everything you need for your stay is catered for. Location is ideal as it is only 3 miles from Kendal Centre and there is a super market just a couple of miles from the cottage.
The best feature of the cottage is that the living area is on the upper floor providing superb uninterrupted views of the countryside. A good base to explore the Lakes.
Their were only two issues over the week. The first concern is the access to the cottage which is straight off the a6 and by a very short and steep incline. This is not mentioned in the description on the website we booked through. Anyone with a low sports car or a car with a long bonnet in front of the front wheels would be in danger of grounding the underside of their vehicle. Also this issue may make it difficult for some people who have mobility restrictions. The second issue was that on arrival the owner advised us that the electric would be off from 0900 - 1500 on the Wednesday due to essential work to the electricity supply. Although we understood that the work had to be done, and it was not the owners fault, it meant that we were paying for services and amenities that were not available during this time. We are therefore looking for some recompense for the lack of facilities during this period.
Overall we had a great time.
We were a group of 4, and stayed a week at Strawberry Cottage. The weather that week was gorgeous (we were very fortunate). The cottage itself is very stylishly and comfortably furnished. The views from the balcony are wonderful, and there is a very peaceful feel about the whole place. There are no shops nearby, which may bother a few people (did not bother us). It is most convenient to do the necessary grocery shopping at Morrison's, a mile or so down the road (A6) towards Kendal. My only gripe would be the access / driveway to the cottage, which is somewhat steep. Overall verdict - wonderful stay at Strawberry Cottage.
Lovely cosy cottage thats spot on & run by a friendly landlady.

Everything was there and it was all clean and everything worked and it was bright and spacious. And behold two bathrooms each with a WC, one up and one down. This cottage exceeds expectations. While located in the countryside and away from the crowds, it is only a few minutes by car from the supermarkets located on the northside of Kendal. You have the best of both worlds. So snap this one up and enjoy the fantastic views over the valley from the upstairs lounge room or balcony. The land lady who lives next door could not have been more helpful and friendly, but did not intrude. Great stay.
Have a wonderful break at this cottage, it was very clean and as described. Views from the cottage were beautiful and it was close to all the surrounding villages. Will return to this cottage as its great value for money and the location was good only five mins from Kendal.
Fantastic, spectacular Modern cottage with lovely views!!!

A very Last minute holiday and were delighted to find this charming modern cottage. Welcome was very nice and lovely tea and biscuits upon arrival. It was very clean and luxurious situated in a nice quiet area on the edge of the Lakes. Enjoyed many Bbqs and a glasses of wine playing games with the family whilst taking in the spectacular views across the countryside from both the terrace at the back and the balcony at the front. Everything was excellent, Lake district was beautiful and having this beautiful cottage was the icing on the cake!!! Look forward to booking this again for other breaks in the Lakes we hope and would definatly reccomend it to others!!!

The cottage was spacious and well equipped, lovely views form the upstairs lounge, clean and well presented. I would definately recommend strawberry cottage. It is very close to Kendal and near at least 3 large supermarkets.
