Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
INTRODUCTION Set within a picturesque hamlet and within the Lake District National Park, this picture perfect cottage is a real find. The property has a traditional layout with characterful lounge diner and breakfast kitchen on the ground floor, two double bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor. The current owners have updated the property throughout whilst being sympathetic to the original features and the property is decorated in heritage style colours throughout. Unusually for a cottage of this style, there is a generous garden, large outhouse and off road parking. From the elevated patio is a lovely view over the village and the rear garden is full of cottage plants. Available with no onward chain - a viewing is essential.

Garnett Bridge is nestled at the foot of the Longsleddale Valley in a semi rural location. Kendal is only a short drive away along with Burneside which both have access to train stations, shops and schools. Popular with those that enjoy the outdoor life, countryside walks are right on the doorstep.
