Turning off the main road, make your way down the single track that winds its way through picturesque surroundings. Lush fields accompany your journey, stretching out and creating a captivating panorama of rural beauty that sets the scene for The Shippon. Turn into the courtyard, where the cottage is hidden away, and at once it feels like you've stumbled across a well-kept secret haven. Admire the stunning views of Potter Fell, Brunt Knott and Staveley Head Fell that can all be seen from the front of the house.

With two parking spaces on either side of the path that leads to the front door, breathe in the fresh air and take a moment in the peaceful courtyard, before making your way up to the three-hundred-year-old barn conversion. A canopy provides shelter as you take off muddy boots and jackets and once inside, the light and airy hallway with Amtico flooring makes easy work of any debris from your outdoor adventures or canine companions.

Take a left where the Amtico flooring continues in the spacious kitchen-diner. A large window looks out onto the breath-taking views and fills the room with natural light. The clever use of space under the window, where bespoke storage cupboards have been fitted, provides ample room for organising household items.
Sit at the dining table, enjoying the views and chatting with the cook as you take advantage of the open-plan layout that makes entertaining family or guests effortless. Walk into the kitchen, where an array of grey cabinets offer lots of storage space. With wooden countertops and bright white tiles, the kitchen is modern and sleek, the ideal place to create feasts after those long adventures outdoors.

Appliances include a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, electric hob and built-in oven. The storage cupboard to your left houses the boiler and serves as the ideal spot for conveniently storing larger household items within easy reach.
Re-trace your steps back toward the hallway, turn left and make your way into the spacious living area. Neutral tones set the calm and tranquil setting, with deep carpet underfoot and bright cream coloured walls. Natural light from the French doors fills the room, and the patio area beyond with a table and chairs invites you outside.

Take a cool beverage and sit out on a warm summer day or watch the ever changing Lake District skies with your own private view of the fells. On a clear night, wrap up in a blanket and look up at the stars, listening to the hoot of the owls as you stare the skies. The wide doorway combines the outdoors and indoors perfectly, and the tranquil setting makes it easy to relax and unwind from the outside world.

Providing plenty of space to gather with family and friends, the lounge is the ideal environment to enjoy moments of relaxation. Open the doors wide and listen to the birdsong from outside as you sink into one of the comfortable chairs, or close them against the elements as you get cosy with a warm drink. The versatile space is adaptable to any season or mood, offering privacy and peace.

Retrace your steps and ascend the carpeted stairs to the upper floor and take your first left into a large bedroom. The plush carpet continues and with bright white walls, and high ceiling, the room is welcoming and airy. Let yourself rest a while as you stare dreamily out of the window, looking across at the fells in the distance, ready to enjoy a night of peace and quiet.

Flow through to the ensuite, with white-tiled walls consisting of washbasin, shower and WC.

Return to the landing, pass the window looking out to the distant fells and directly ahead into the second bedroom. Large enough for a double bed with white walls, the room has a calming feeling that invites you to sleep soundly. Continue along to the third room and find a space that lends itself to versatility. Currently hosting a single bed, the airy room with views over the courtyard is also perfect as an office or study area, with the peace and tranquillity of the setting ideal for focused study.
Refresh and revive in the bathroom to your left, with large white-tiled walls and a bright feeling, it comprises a washbasin, WC, and bath with an overhead shower.

Gardens and Grounds
Nestled in a courtyard, surrounded by stunning views, a large lock up (with power) owned by The Shippon offers ample storage space. Perfect for keeping bikes, paddleboards, or any number of sports equipment, the lock up offers another area to keep adventure within easy reach.

The patio outside the lounge area with space for a table and chairs, and well-kept rockery, looks out over to Kendal Fell. With daffodils in the spring and the outlook over fields where farm animals are sometimes present, the outside space is an idyllic, restful sanctuary.

Out and About
The market town of Kendal is only a five-minute drive away with many shops, cafes, restaurants, large supermarkets and leisure centre. A fifteen-minute drive away brings you to the lively village of Bowness, where you can catch a ferry across Lake Windermere and explore further afield.

Take the bikes and ride over to Staveley village to Hawkshead brewery or visit Wilf's Café for a slice of cake and hot chocolate.

With so many wonderful walks from the doorstep, and so centrally located to explore the Lake District, The Shippon makes an ideal starting point for any adventure.
