The property

Crooklands Cottage rests in Crooklands, Cumbria, a fantastic and spacious detached cottage. The home is ideal for a large family or group gathering, with five bedrooms and open-plan living spaces, and is close to the wilds of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Before hauling your bags into Crooklands Cottage, guests have access to the nearby hotel car park, which has enough space for five cars. Each room is beautifully finished with fantastic amenities to suit those who prefer high-quality over rustic and traditional. The ground floor offers plenty of space to catch up with loved ones or take some time to yourself. The contemporary and well-appointed kitchen/diner contains two electric ovens and a hob, microwave, and an American-style fridge/freezer to stock up on your favourite foods for your stay, with lots of seating options; before retiring to one of two sitting rooms, set the huge dining table and plan the next day's adventures over a scrumptious home-cooked dinner. Keep your holiday clothes clean in the adjacent utility room, which includes a sink, washing machine, and tumble dryer. For a quieter evening, gather in the first sitting room, which has plush seats and a giant Smart TV, or head to the second sitting room, which has another Smart TV, Playstation, and pool table for a friendly competition. A cloakroom with basin, heated towel rail, and WC completes the ground floor and is ideal for quickly freshening up before heading out the door. Five super-king-size bedrooms are located upstairs, one of which has a snug sitting area set under a skylight and an en-suite shower room with underfloor heating, while a second super-king-size offers woodland views from a Juliet balcony, an en-suite shower room with underfloor heating, and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. After you've stepped under the Monsoon shower head or soaked in a peaceful bubble bath, wrap yourself in a towel fresh from the heated towel rack in the magnificent family bathroom. Admire this charming stone cottage from the privacy of the enclosed back garden, where you may dine alfresco on the patio or spread a picnic blanket on the lawn for a sunny lunch. Step through the patio doors into the comfort of the sitting room as the night turns cooler or bring your swimming suits for an evening in the hot tub under the stars. Crooklands Cottage is next to a garage with a shop for the basics on your self-catering holiday, and a hotel and pub are just next door, serving wonderful meals and well-deserved pints after a day of hiking in the countryside. The Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales are located on each side of Crooklands, allowing visitors to enjoy the best of Northern England's beautiful landscapes while walking, trekking, climbing, or cycling. Milnthorpe, a little market town with a market square full of enticing shops and charming cafés, is a good starting point for exploring the Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has gorgeous trails and an abundance of wildlife. Kendal, north of Crooklands Cottage, is a vibrant town with lovely high streets, traditional pubs, and plenty of history and legacy in the ruins of Kendal Castle and the Quaker Tapestry Museum. Journey to the popular Windermere for boat trips across the picture-perfect lake, a break for lunch in a small tearoom, or a climb up Orrest Head for panoramic views across breath-taking scenery. Choose Crooklands Cottage as your vacation home to commemorate a special occasion or spend quality time with family and friends.
