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.


Lovely Location
Lovely location on a now unnavigable section of the Lancaster to Kendal canal lots of wildlife on your doorstep literaly. (woke up to rabbits on the doorstep several times & Swans & Cygnets at the wharf).Great views from the kitchen and upstairs bedrooms. Great base for exploring the lakes., Very peaceful and no immediate neighbours. Visited for a family holiday with our adult son and daugter and their respective partners plus our 6 month old grandaughter and our dog. Local Butcher in Burton very good. Aldi Booths and Tesco supermarkets a short drive away. Good local walks along the canal tow path. Cottage well equiped and very clean. Only downside was that the washing machine was not working. Very prompt response by the owner via phone & text but problem not fixed before we left which was a bit of a pain when we had a 6 month old and all the attendant washing that brings, plus most of the adults had only packed 3 daysworth of clothes. we particularly appreciated the loosleaf file of lakeland walks in the kitchen very useful plus the maps All things considered realy nice place to stay. We'd recommend it.

Loved everything about our holiday at Wharf Cottage.

Sympathetically renovated period cottage in idyllic location
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!

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