This particularly spacious detached cottage was formerly a cottage and sweet shop in a previous life, and sits in the increasingly popular traditional lakeland village of Staveley within the Lake District National Park. There are excellent walks from the front door, including the final stage of the Dales Way.
The property offers generous living areas, with a comfortably furnished living room complemented by a wood burner for cosy evenings, a spacious dining kitchen and the addition of a bright and airy sun room with a second table and easy seating.
Well presented throughout, the cottage has been carefully prepared for guests to enjoy quality furnishings and comfort with a real home from home feel. With the owners’ promise of an unusual welcome pack awaiting your arrival, this delightful property has a lot to offer.
All village services are within a few minutes’ walk including cafes, traditional pubs, restaurants, newsagents, grocers and village bakers - this really is a thriving village!
Staveley is home to festivals and concerts, quiz nights and regular car boot sales. The phrase ’something for everyone’ seems to be made just for Staveley! The village is on the main bus and train route providing direct access to all far corners and near sectors of lakeland.
Kentmere Cottage is convenient for outdoor enjoyment, allowing easy access to the central and eastern fells, particularly the High Street range, (named after the Roman road running over the 828 metre summit – the highest point in the eastern National Park), and the much loved Dales Way.
The Kentmere Valley is an acknowledged hub for mountain bikers, whilst those preferring to cycle easier terrain will enjoy the wealth of popular local routes taking in the unspoilt Kentmere scenery. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
