Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Serpentine Rest is a homely ground floor apartment enjoying roof top views over the town of Kendal, the ancient market town often referred to as the Gateway to the Lakes. Welcomed in by a sun room with lovely views of the garden and fells in the distance this deceptively spacious apartment is ideal for a family of four wishing to enjoy the delights of both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The pleasant outlook, towards the Kentmere Valley will surely encourage you to investigate this scenic valley which remains quieter than the more popular areas of the Lake District.

The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District conjures up images of magnificent mountains and shimmering lakes and that is exactly what visitors find here. In fact the whole county of Cumbria is home to some of Britain's most beautiful scenery. This region has been a favourite all year round holiday destination for years and apart from its natural beauty it's also packed with lots of attractions and activities that cater for every kind of holidaymaker, from family holidays to romantic breaks for couples and from those who are looking for lots of activities and sports to those that prefer more gentle country pursuits. The Lake District National Park lies at the heart of Cumbria and contains well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere, here there are lots of charming Lakeland villages to discover and visitor attractions for all the family. The northern and western lakes have miles of untouched natural rugged beauty and rural villages as well as being home to the historic northern lakes town of Keswick with its many shops, pubs and restaurants; providing a great holiday base. Other areas to discover include the Eden Valley, Cartmel peninsula, south east Cumbria and the Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall area; all equally beautiful and very handy for day trips into the lakes.
Kendal is often referred to as the gateway to the Lake District being within easy reach of both Windermere in the south and Keswick in the north. This old market town also acts as a great base for those wishing to explore the Yorkshire Dales with the Three Peaks just half an hour by car. The diverse range of shops, museums and leisure facilities make this an attractive place to enjoy a Lakeland holiday. The nearby ruin of Kendal Castle has brilliant views over the town whilst the surrounding pretty villages of Underbarrow, Crosthwaite and Newby Bridge all provide pleasant places to explore. You simply cannot be better placed for a relaxing weekend or week away.
