A lovely well maintained cottage in a quiet village with good access to the Lake District

5 of 5
Fell View is a lovely cottage, maintained to a high standard and well equipped with everything needed for a short break away. The welcome pack of milk, teabags and biscuits was much appreciated. The cottage is located in a quiet village, a 5 minute walk from a lovely local pub called the Pheasants Inn which is family and dog friendly. There is also a post office / local convenience store just across the road. It is an ideal location for exploring the southern Lake District, with easy access to Grange-Over-Sands, Cartmel and Newby Bridge and there are some lovely walks right on the doorstep.
