The Malabar is one of our NEW cottages!
Luxuriate in a lovingly restored country retreat with sumptuous furnishings, tasteful decor, and beautiful views. The Malabar is the perfect base for gathering together family and friends: sleeping up to 12 guests (plus up to 4 children under 12) in six beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with en suite walk in showers and enormous boat baths, it is an exquisite holiday cottage that you'll want to return to again and again!
In the heart of the Cumbrian countryside between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, The Malabar is just a 5-minute drive from the motorway. Every window offers far reaching views onto rolling hills, so you can sit and delight in this wonderful area. There is so much to explore: take a walk from the front door and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the River Lune, which runs gently through the unspoiled farmland that surrounds you; explore Sedbergh and its charming shops and cafes; take a drive into the rugged Yorkshire Dales to visit the home of Wensleydale Cheese in Hawes... You're simply spoiled for choice!
If you're looking for a challenge, there's plenty on offer, too! Hike up into the Howgills and you will feel like you are exploring uncharted territory: miles of spectacular fell walking along quiet trails where you might not see a soul. Take a day trip into the Lake District and go paddle boarding on Ullswater and tree top trekking in Windermere, or tackle the Via Ferrata at the spectacular Honister Pass. And there's always Helvellyn or Scafell Pike to climb!
Whatever your activities during your time here, The Malabar will feel like your home-from-home.
