Burton-in-Kendal, Cumbria, England
Small family estate incorporating an idyllic rural retreat one bedroom cottage within the walled Thomas Mawson garden, with bathroom, kitchen and open plan sitting room, and access to roof terrace.

The estate tennis court has just been resurfaced, so please feel free to bring a tennis racket, there are some in the pavilion but they are a bit old! :)

Whether you are walking in the Lakes, cycling in the Dales, or after a spot of bird watching, this cottage is set within the private grounds of a lovely family home and parkland .Peacocks roam free around the garden, and the family are on hand to offer advise on the best places to visit and eat. There are many local Nature Reserves. Easy access from the M6 junction 35 and 36

Friday-Friday or Friday-Monday, or Monday-Friday bookings preferred

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes I am sorry about the cockerel but he is such a handsome fellow and likes everyone awake as he's bored and wants some action :) I hope the earplugs were of some use! Hope to see you both again Thomasina
