This charming 200-year-old cottage has been fully modernised to offer comfortable accommodation for up to six people.

Situated on the outskirts of Burton-in-Kendal and just seven miles from Kirkby Lonsdale is this charming 200-year-old detached cottage. Set within 12 miles of the vibrant city of Kendal, the cottage enjoys a peaceful setting with wonderful views. This comfortable and thoughtfully modernised cottage is full of character and has a fantastic beamed sitting room, wood-burning stove and outstanding views from its three bedrooms over the surrounding countryside to the Lakeland Fells. Diverse wildlife can be spotted on the nearby canal, whilst swans and other wildfowl can be seen along the wharf. There is a pub with restaurant just a short walk from the property, making this a well positioned home from home.


Loved everything about our holiday at Wharf Cottage.
Mr Harford

Wharf Cottage is superb, in every sense! It sits, alone, on a now unnavigable section of the Lancaster Canal, with beautiful views all round. Peace and tranquillity reign here - sitting on the terrace, overlooking the canal, on a balmy summer's evening was bliss. And yet the cottage is very accessible to the M6, the A6 and other routes to many beautiful areas within Lancs/Cumbria. Wharf Cottage is comfortable, homely, well-equipped and fantastic for a visit at any time of the year. It is warm and cosy, the shelves are lined with books and useful information about the area, and there are cupboards full of board games. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday accommodation ... just book it!!

This cottage is a real gem! Beautifully situated next to a disused canal and not another soul nearby. It was quiet, clean, splendidly appointed and well equipped. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone - in or out of season. Our dog loved it there!
Mr Collins

The cottage was excellent, it made our holiday all the more enjoyable. We will be staying there again.
