Holeslack Farmhouse is listed in affiliation with National Trust Holidays.
Built in the sixteenth century, Holeslack Farmhouse is a Grade II listed building, retaining many original and unique features including a spiral staircase and seventeenth-century oak cupboards. The large garden and spacious house makes the house ideal for family groups, and the location means you can enjoy peace and quiet, with distant views of Sizergh Castle and the lush, green surrounding countryside that surrounds you.
Inside, you’ll find a large farmhouse kitchen that’s ideal for cooking and chatting together, and where you’ll find everything you need for cooking up a feast. There’s even a traditional wood burning stove for cooking, keeping you warm and for providing some serious charm for the kitchen. Also on this floor is a dining room and separate sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. Take the spiral stairs up to where four bedrooms sit, all elegantly marrying the traditional features of the house with a simple, elegant style. There are also two bathrooms both with showers and baths.
Outside, you’ll find parking for three cars and a large enclosed garden to the front and side of the house that makes this house ideal for children.
The farmhouse is on the Sizergh Castle estate that stands at the gateway to the Lake District and is set in 1600 acres of limestone countryside. You can explore the numerous walks across the estate, many with panoramic views across Morecambe Bay and the Lakeland fells. On your ‘to do list’ should be the popular local walk along Scout Scar, a spectacular limestone pavement.
Just a 15 minutes drive away is Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, and 10 minutes away is the lovely market town of Kendal, ideal for your fix of cafes, restaurants and shops. The house also offers easy access to the Winster and Lyth valleys, beautiful areas for walking and cycling. Foodies will appreciate the chance to try some delicious, local fare with Herdwick meat, Morecambe Bay shrimps, locally made cheese, Cumberland sausage, sticky toffee pudding and plenty of local beer all available to try nearby at the many great restaurants and pubs. Beatrix Potter’s home and the birthplace of William Wordsworth is also nearby.
This is a National Trust cottage located on the Sizergh Castle estate, near Kendal with access to amazing walks and bike rides from the door.
