Cottage in Underbarrow, Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Quiet Location, 10 Minutes From Kendal
About Heather Grover
We live in Nottinghamshire and have three grown up children. We both work and spent most of our spare time in 2014 completely refurbishing the cottage with the help of friends and family. We love walking, and enjoy a good meal out in a local pub or restaurant, and the cottage is perfect for both of these.
Heather Grover purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Heather Grover chose Kendal
We wanted to buy a cottage in the Lakes and Orphan Crag ticked all the boxes, being close to the central Lakes area but slightly off the beaten track.
What makes this Cottage unique
Orphan Crag is just a few minutes drive from Kendal and a short stroll from an excellent local pub selling good beer and serving excellent food at reasonable prices.

Accommodation had everything you needed and was very clean and well maintained. The location is great as everything we wanted to do with the kids was no more then 25mins away.
Cottage was delightful, we had a few teething issues with the heating and both fires did not work which was a shame, also the door was a struggle to open and close, however other than that, everything was very homely and a pleasure to stay in :)
Brilliant holiday accommodation
This property had all we wanted for our holiday. Beautiful location, real character in absolute abundance and an extremely homely feel. I wouldn't hesitate holidaying at this property again for sure. Great pub/restaurant down the road and the view of Scout Scar and surrounding countryside from the rear of the house is incredible.
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings
The cottage is lovely and clean and has everything we needed for a very comfortable stay.
Situated in a quiet village, with a nice pub with good food very close by. Very convenient for exploring the Lake District . We loved our stay and would be happy to recommend it to friends and family.
Lovely cottage, perfectly set up and in a fantastic location for walking and relaxing.
The cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable with a very well-equipped kitchen. Everything was immaculately clean and the welcome gift of wine and biscuits was a thoughtful touch. There’s lots to do within a short drive, and a great pub a few yards from the door. Lovely walks from the doorstep, too.
We had a fantastic week and very much hope to return. Thank you!
Character cottage in the countryside.
Lovely old character cottage. Clean, warm, cosy, real fire, low beams, thick walls, but with modern bathroom and kitchen. Peaceful countryside setting, just up the road from a really good pub (Black Labrador) which does meals (you might have to book a table as it gets busy).
Not much mobile phone signal, but cottage has secure internet.
Low beams could be a problem for tall people (the one on the stairs has leapt out at my husbands head, twice!!), but the lounge, kitchen, and 2 of the bedrooms are fine.
You will need a car/ taxi/ bike, as no buses or rail near.
Underbarrow is located out in the country, and has no shops, but it is near Kendal (9 mins away by car) and Bowness and Windermere.
Huddleston's butchers in Windermere do fantastic award winning pork pies and Cumberland sausages, Booth's in Windermere is an upmarket supermarket for that something special, or there is Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Aldi, etc., in Kendal.
If you want peace and quiet and relaxing, with views across fields to the fells, I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.
Easy access from the M6, a car is essential.
Kendal - 4 miles
Bowness on Windermere - 8 miles
Apart from the village pub and restaurant nearby Crosthwaite and Brigsteer both have pubs serving excellent food. Nearby attractions include local walks overlooking the Lyth Valley along Scout Scar, and places to visit close by include Sizergh Castle.
