Lovely little cottage, well situated in a charming village. Handy for Arnside and Leighton Moss, also for Lake District. Levens Hall and Sizergh Castle are on the doorstep.
Try the village shop, which has a good range of local food. There is enough to do from Levens without going into the Lake District every day, and good facilities in Kendal and Milnthorpe.
Limestone Cottage is in the pretty village of Levens, just a few miles from Kendal. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, well decorated and beautifully furnished throughout and we loved both the interior and exterior. It has everything you need, and will sleep up to 3 people. It is only towels that are not provided. There is private parking and a garden. It was very easy to reach from the M6, and you didn't have to go far to see some beautiful sights. We would recommend Bowness, Coniston, Grasmere, Ambleside and also the Ingleton Waterfall Trail. We managed to get to Hill Top, too, which was one of Beatrix Potter's homes. We stuck to the South Lakes, as there was so much to see, but you could go further afield as well. You can see Levens on foot and we had a lovely long walk around the local countryside on one of the days. We were very fortunate with the weather for our week's holiday.
We would definitely recommend the Hare and Hounds in Levens for a meal. Bowness is also a good place to eat out. There are loads of restaurants to choose from there. We were spoilt for choice.
We very much hope to return, as this was our first visit to the Lake District and we loved it.
