Period cottage, stylishly updated to provide a beautiful retreat for two guests, situated on the southern edge of the Lake District National Park, only six miles from Lake Windermere.

This property enjoys a quiet location in the village of Lindale, which lies between the coast at Grange-over-Sands, and the picturesque Lake District. In the village itself there is a village shop, as well as two pubs, whilst a larger range of shops can be found in Grange-over-Sands, some 2.5 miles away. Heading north, through the fells of the Lake District National Park, visitors come to the village of Lakeside which sits on the southern shore of Lake Windermere and from where it possible to take a relaxing cruise around the lake, stopping on the way at Bowness or Ambleside, or perhaps combine the trip with a visit to the Lakes Aquarium or on the trains of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

This property offers a high standard of accommodation throughout and has been thoughtfully styled by an award-winning interior designer, ensuring that the cottage is a true one-off. Stone steps lead up to the front door which opens directly into the lounge area of the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a wonderfully cosy space where a comfortable sofa and armchair sit under the beamed ceiling next to the warming wood burner. There is a Smart TV, as well as a hi-fi and iPod dock, all of which can be enjoyed from the dining area and kitchen, as well as the lounge. Behind the sofa, a rustic dining table sits between the lounge and the well-equipped kitchen where guests will find an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. The washer/dryer meanwhile can be found in a separate utility cupboard. Open-tread wooden stairs lead from the kitchen area to the double bedroom on the first floor. This sanctuary-like space has been beautifully finished with loving attention to detail, and has its own TV/DVD, perfect for relaxing with a late-night film. Crossing the landing from the bedroom, a dressing room provides plenty of storage space for clothes, beyond which there is a contemporary shower room with a walk-in shower and WC.

There is small garden to the front of the property with bench seating, and one off-road parking space to the rear.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is an attractive cottage in a good location the steep stairs are typical of a cottage of this age and style but quite usable the kitchen had all we needed maybe the bathroom is a little tight but we managed fine

The cottage was lovely and cosy. We very much enjoyed our time here.

Lovely, cosy holiday cottage. We made good use of the wood burner, and the sofa was super squishy! The L'Occitane toiletries were also a nice touch. The food at the local pub in Lindale was really good, and the village of Cartmel is a great spot for tea rooms and restaurants - just a short drive away. We had a very relaxing break - thank you.

What a lovely cosy romantic cottage, especially when you get the log burner on! Lovely little touch with the goodie bag, robes and LOccitane toiletries. We had no complaints but some of the comments in the guest book cited having no back garden and no gate on the front if youve got a dog as issues. Would recommend.

Very nice cottage, great location and clean, comfortable and we'll equipped. Would definitely stay there again.

2nd time to Lyme Cottage and it was as perfect the second time round as it was on our first visit. Cute, charming, close to the Royal Oak Pub, driving distance to incredible hikes and walks. The perfect hideaway. Will definitely come back for a third visit!

We had a great time here! Perfect location and a wonderful home for the week, we will definitely be back!

Lyme Cottage is a lovely cottage set in a beautiful quaint village. The village itself provided excellent access to all of the Southern Lakes area. The cottage itself had everything you could ask for including a little hamper bag which was gorgeous! Perfect for a romantic getaway in the Lakes :)

Lovely character cottage in a good location for accessing the lakes. The cottage has everything you need and a great pub at the top of the hill called the Royal Oak and the food is very good there. The home made welcome pack with bread, scones and jam was a lovely touch. Would stay again.

Lovely cottage in a really nice location. Really gave us everything we needed. Royal Oak pub in the village does fantastic food too.

Excellent location for visiting the South Lakes. The property is perfect for couples. It is cosy and well equipped and extremely comfortable. We were greeted with a spotlessly clean property and a home made welcome pack. Only downside very little outside space but as we visited in November this was not an issue. Would I use this property again....YRead morees. Hide

We absolutely loved our time at Lyme Cottage- a relaxing and comfortable stay! The house didnt disappoint, it was just as cosy as the photos depict. It had everything you could need and we especially loved the log burner! We werent sure whether the location would be a bit isolated but it turned out to be ideal for accessing all areas, both the coasRead moret and the lakes. Any main shops are only a 5 minute drive and the local pub is a short walk from the house. We would definitely return! Hide

We were greeted to a very tidy, very clean cottage with a beautiful welcome hamper. All the facilities worked great with no snags or mishaps. The log burner was fantastic especially after arriving back from long walks around the Lake District. I have been home less than a day and have already recommended this property to a number of my friends. I wRead moreould definitely visit this cottage again. Hide

Reviewed by Niall 3rd September 2018

Great cottage, lovely feel, nice touch with welcome bag of goodies, could do with 2nd loo roll. Loved it but location is a bit off due to local pub not allowing dogs and not much else to do in close vicinity.
