Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Car essential
  • No pets allowed

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 are keen to welcome their guests & offer local knowledge & advice. They provide lots of information: maps, leaflets, guides, books and board games, DVD's, a 'welcome pack' and can be on - hand if you experience any problems.

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.

Kirkby Lonsdale is a beautiful market town with unique shops, pubs & restaurants and wonderful walks to Devils Bridge & Ruskins View over the stunning River Lune.

Our local pub is 2 miles up the road offering the real ale experience.

We welcome cyclists & bikers, with or without an engine & can provide secure storage for both.

There are many lovely quiet walks/rides you can do from your front door with stunning views of the Cumbrian fells.

The 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.

Old Hutton

The local area has a busy calendar offering so much diverse entertainment & activity - always something to suit everyone.

Mintfest, our international street arts festival in August is as popular as ever, but will be having a break in 2015 - as is the stunning Kendal Mountain Festival in November.

The Westmorland County Show is a one-day agricultural show in September that never fails to entertain and shows off 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. For five weeks from the end of July and through all of August you can enjoy the Summer Sundays live music in the Brewery Gardens.
