  • Spacious Georgian farmhouse centrally located in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales and the stunning Lake District with ground floor level access shower room and bedroom with king-size or twin beds.
  • Beautifully finished property, an attractive mix of period features and contemporary fittings, surrounded by countryside
  • Relax & Unwind in the Hot Tub in a tranquil location with garden and patio areas
Property code: 60305

Georgian farmhouse beautifully updated, ideally located for exploring the Lakes and the Dales, the perfect getaway to relax with family and friends.

Studded on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within 7.5 miles of a Lakeland adventure, this gem of a property adds a touch of luxury to any special celebration. Your party of ten will adore socialising together in the two lounge areas and tucking into fabulous feasts as a group, descending on the garden for BBQ suppers and leisurely dips in the hot tub. The surrounding area is a natural playground of fell strolls, mountain climbs and shoreline scrambles, best enjoyed followed by crisp local ale in a welcoming establishment.

Striking from the outset and welcoming guests with a wood burner in the first lounge and an open fire in the second, your accommodation is dressed to impress with comfortable interiors and lavish extra details. Mealtimes are a celebratory affair thanks to the kitchen that’s fit for a celebrity chef and a formal dining area with seating for ten. The bedrooms are also delightful, one of which you’ll discover on the ground floor along with an accessible shower room. The remaining bedrooms are upstairs, providing a restful sanctuary after your daily adventures. The bathrooms are fabulous with extravagant baths and showers – one of which is a handy en-suite to a super-king-size bedroom. Outside, the vast gardens boast stunning views as well as a BBQ area, outdoor fireplace and a hot tub.

Kendal has lots to offer the curious traveller with oodles of shops and eateries to peruse. This gateway town reveals myriad trails through the Lake District National Park, so once you’ve loaded up on picnic essentials, it’s time to explore. The Dales have much to offer in the way of exciting walks too, whether you are marvelling at the iconic Devil’s Bridge or tackling the summit of Whernside, 18.5 miles away.

The house overall was finenot convinced it was worth the money compared to other properties I have rented at same price. Dining room/back bedrooms quite dark would benefit from improved lighting.

Absolutely. Three Mile Cottage is lovely and very homely, unlike cottages we have stayed at before that sometimes feel like a 'holiday rental'. The owner has put so much effort into the finishing touches to such high standard that make all the difference. We will definitely be returning.

Three Mile House is perfect for a week away with friends/family. You feel at home as soon as you arrive and when the sun is out the patio area is great. The hot tub is a great addition. Arriving there just after COVID 19 restrictions were eased after 14 weeks was lovely and relaxing around the house was just what we needed !

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
