Old Hutton is a small, quiet & friendly south Lakeland village split into three sections. Dragons' Den is in the last section called Bridge End & sits in a small cluster of similar properties surrounded by farm land and open countryside. Peasey Beck runs alongside the property - you can hear the water flowing most of the time except in exceptionally dry conditions!
The owners live adjacent to the property & are keen to welcome their guests & offer local knowledge & advice. They provide lots of information: maps, leaflets, guides, books and board games, DVD's and a 'welcome pack'.
The Lake District National Park is about 7 miles away as is the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Our nearest towns are Kendal, 4 miles one way & Kirkby Lonsdale, 6 miles the other. Both offer very different experiences. Kendal with it's quirky "ginnels" & "yards" to explore, some great eateries with it's local cumbrian fayre & our wonderful Brewery Arts Centre.

The Cumbria/Lake District
We are ideally situated on the Cumbrian/Yorkshire/Lancashire borders.
Going north will take you up into the Lake District National Park and east into the Yorkshire Dales
The Lakes speaks for itself but you can get away from the obvious honey pots of Windermere, Ambleside, & Keswick & see the quieter, more hidden treasures - Far Sawrey, Brothers Water, Coniston - it is endless.
Beyond the quaint Cumbrian town of Sedbergh and beautiful Dent you can head into Yorkshire - Hawes, Wensleydale & beyond.
The local area has a busy calendar offering so much diverse entertainment & activity - always something to suit everyone.
Mintfest, our street arts festival is as popular as ever as is the stunning Mountain Festival.
The Westmorland County Show is a one-day agricultural show that never fails to entertain and shows our wonderful Cumbrian life at its best.
Grizedale Forest with its endless bike trails, walks & the 'Go Ape' experience.
The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal is a bustling place with a huge reputation - cinema, music, theatre, comedy, visual arts and The Grainstore Restaurant & Vats Bar.
