Set within 12 miles of the vibrant city of Kendal, the cottage enjoys a peaceful setting with wonderful views. This comfortable and thoughtfully modernised cottage is full of character and has a fantastic beamed sitting room, wood-burning stove and outstanding views from its three bedrooms over the surrounding countryside to the Lakeland Fells.

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: The small traditional Cumbrian village of Burton is set in beautiful countryside and is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Bowland Forest.
