New Cottage: The Shippon


As a treat I have another new cottage for you all...

The Living Room at The Shippon

The Shippon, a converted stable on the outskirts of Kendal, is a delightful retreat for five people and one dog. There's a spacious open plan dining kitchen and a stunning, elegant sitting room on the ground floor.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms: a king-size with its own en suite shower room, a delightful double and a lovely single, as well as the family bathroom with its shower over the bath.

Outside, the wonderful garden is shared with the four other properties on the row of houses. If you're after your own outside space, though, there's a lovely private patio outside the living room, perfect for lunch al fresco!

Hill views from The Shippon in KendalTake a short walk downhill and you're in the centre of Kendal. With it's great choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, Kendal is perfect if you're looking for a relaxing weekend mooching around a lovely town. Don't think you get away without a bit of culture and history though: there's a ruined castle to explore and the popular Brewery Arts Centre if you fancy a film or play. Enjoy quieter strolls from the door or head into nearby Windermere for some of the more well-known routes.

The Shippon is perfect for a last minute summer break!
