Greystones Cottage
Greystones Cottage

Location

The cottage is ideally placed close to the towns of Kendal (6 miles) and Milnthorpe (3 miles) and 5 minutes from junction 36 of the M6; the gateway to the Southern Lake District, the Furness Penninsula and the Yorkshire Dales. Set over three floors with pretty countryside views from the upper floors, this cottage is set next door to the owners' home, on a non-working farm, in the hamlet of Milton. 

 

These premises are very convenient for visiting the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, the sea at Arnside or, a little further away, the West Cumberland Coast. 

 

The "Auld Grey Town", Kendal is 6 miles away and there are also plenty of other market towns to explore. Kirkby Lonsdale is well worth a visit, hosting a good selection of eateries, locally brewed beer and shops and home to the famous 'Devil's Bridge', 7 miles away on the A65 to Skipton. 

There are plenty of places to walk, especially the unspoilt stretch of the Lancaster to Kendal Canal, which is accessible from the lane. Short barge trips are often available during the summer months.

 

This area is very popular with mountain bikers, with many routes found at Staveley (Kentmere), Grizedale Forest and Whinlatter near Keswick

 

Keen birdwatchers have plenty to see on the 'Kent Estuary' at Arnside, Grange-over-Sands and at Leighton Moss bird sanctuary

 

The Lake District and surrounding area are rich in historical buildings and monuments.
