Briarcliffe Cottage description

Holiday home
Lovingly renovated in 2007 to provide a superb blend of original character with contemporary style, this cottage is spacious and stylish throughout, boasting an open fire, two lavish en suite bathrooms with underfloor heating and a charming summer room leading to an attractive courtyard garden. There are many pleasant walks from the doorstep, whilst Lindale's quaint, narrow streets are home to traditional dwellings, a shop and welcoming old pubs. Cartmel, the coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange over Sands and mystical Lake Windermere are all well worth a visit. An idyllic holiday retreat.

Just a short drive away is Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead - which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many. Set amidst the charm of the southern lakes this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The property is in a good location to the southern lakes and easy to reach from the M6 and A590. Its situated in Lindale which is a pleasant village with everything you need near by. The house had been decorated and and furnished to a high standard with an en suite for the 2 main bedrooms which we found very useful. We had everything we needed in the property. If returning to this area would use the property again and will certainly recommend it to others.

A good location and a nice cosy cottage. It was well equipped, little but with a lovely garden and on a quiet street with 2 pubs nearby!
Mr Stockdale
June 2014
The location for the South Lake District was good, with easy access to the A590 which runs along the whole length of the southern part. We particularly liked the fact that the property had a bathroom for each bedroom with two en-suites and a main bathroom for a three bedroomed property.
Mrs Burgess

Briarcliffe is a lovely and very comfortable house with everything needed for a great self catering holiday. The fittings and furnishings are of a high standard. It is very clean and easily managed, and the garden is lovely for sitting in in the evenings, with barbecue, large table etc. It is in a small friendly village with a shop about 100 yards away and two pubs close by, good for eating out.
Mr Goodman

Absolutely fabulous property - everyone had their own en suite, and they even thought of umbrella's, walking sticks, pegs, hoover and every mod con you can think of in the kitchen. The beds were also great and the whole property just felt luxurious.

Mr Walters
September 2010
Briarcliffe cottage is absolutely beautiful. It is big and spacious with a lovely garden, ideal for sitting out at night with the chiminea blazing. It's an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of the country. All the facilities in the cottage are good. The open fire was great, we lit it a few times for a bit of ambiance. All in all I would thoroughly recommend the cottage if you want somewhere to come back to after a day out exploring the Lake District and to relax with a glass of wine or three.
Mrs Turner
July 2010
This has to be the best holiday cottage we have stayed in over the years we have been visiting this area. A lovely well equipped cottage in an excellent location for exploring both the Lakes and coastline. Excellent value for money too.

Great cottage. Very large, and rooms were all clean and decor to a very high standard. Great location, in quiet village, but only 5 minutes drive from major routes. Nice enclosed garden with BBQ, and off road parking. A wonderful base for the Windermere area.
Mrs Wentworth-wood

This cottage was excellent value for money. We enjoyed the fact there were so many showers/bath/toilets as there were six adults in the family. It was well situated for visiting the South Lakes and Windermere/Bowness attractions. Also handy for Cartmel races.

The cottage was so so lovely - excellent in fact! We're going to struggle when we book again as it will be hard to match the standards of this property. Will definitely consider visiting this property again. Ideal location - a lovely quiet little village - not far from Windermere.

Great cottage with high standard of furnishing. Three bathrooms realy felt luxurous. Great views from the bedrooms. Lindale is a lovely village and we loved the surroundings (especially Morecombe Bay). Small but lovely enclosed garden formed a great place to eat with the family.
Mrs Gleave
May 2007
The property was stunning - a real show home. Done to a fantastic standard and great value for money. It felt like a boutique hotel rather than a holiday cottage. Fantastic!
Mrs Germaine-cox
September 2007
It delivered what we wanted - peace and quiet in a relaxing and comfortable environment...our second visit this year and we are likely to return.
Ms Coates
July 2007
We loved the cottage, the standard of decor and refurbishment was 1st class. The beds were very comfortable , which is not always the case when on holiday .The cottage was well positioned in the village , close to a shop and the pubs, as well as having great walks on the doorstep. The area is glorious , so the combination of all these things made for a wonderful break.
Miss Wills
November 2007
It's a perfect place. Very quiet and well located for visiting the lakes, beautiful scenic routes on the way. There is a nice pub, Lindale Arms which serves food just a short walk away and a post office/store which is also a short walk.House was really lovely. Great place.
Mrs Germaine-cox
April 2007
It was a wonderful cottage. I could not fault it. Considering it was a last minute booking I could not believe the standard of the cottage. The neighbours were very friendly and helpful too. Plenty of space for the children. It is worth mentioning that there is a children's recreation ground within 7 minutes walk , there are also TVs in each bedroom, which was a nice surprise, especially for the children. The Local Pub within 2 mins walk served lovely food and was very welcoming. It is a good base to tour the Lake District and we will definitely return to the cottage.
August 2014
Briarcliffe Cottage is located in the village of Lindale just off the A590, It's a great location for visiting the many attractions of the Southern Lake District. The cottage is beautifully presented, with three well sized bedrooms, two of which have en-suites, leaving the main bathroom as a private bathroom for bedroom three. Downstairs the lounge, dining room and kitchen are well equipped. With an attached sun room accessed from the rear there is plenty of room to leave footwear and wet clothing, not something we needed as we had fine weather.
September 2011
What a fantastic time we had at Briarcliffe Cottage. made very welcome, the cottage it's self was brilliant, very comfortable and very spacious. Loved the garden area aswell as I think we booked the best week of the year. 10 out of 10
May 2010
This is a superb property. It would be especially suitable for three couples who want some degree of privacy. It is maintained to a very high standard and has plenty of space. Lindale makes a very convenient base to explore the South Cumbria area.
November 2010
Good south lakes location. Pleasant house with lovely bedrooms and en-suites, ideal for our family with Granny & Gramps staying too.
January 2010
Excellent service from both Sykes and the owner. Cottage decorated and furnished to high standard, beautiful throughout. Ideal location for walking and handy for touring the Lake District. Couple of nice eating pubs and a shop on the doorstep.
Chris Bostock
December 2009
The property is furnished to a high standard, in fact we could not find fault in anything, everything was there that we needed. In a quiet village close to an excellent public house serving good food and nicely located for visiting the Lake District.
February 2010
We thought the house was very spacious and the facilities were of a very high standard. All the rooms were of a high standard. The kitchen was wel equipped and there were plenty of crockery etc. The house was very warm and although we were looking forward to lighting the open fire we did not need to. If we wanted to stay in this area again we would certain hope that this property was available.
December 2009
Our time spent in the Lake District was Ace. Everything about our goliday there was great,the cottage was everything we wished for and more,would highly recommend it. Good base to stay, as there is so much to see and do around the area. Lindale is a nice little village, with a good pub at top of the hill, good food served,with nice friendly staff. Grange-Over-Sands which is a ten minute drive away, is a small town with excellent shops ,and eating places. Not to be missed,as it has lots of features from the Edwardian times. We shall go back thats for sure,as it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the wide open spaces that the Lakes have to offer.Just beautiful.
December 2009
Excellently decorated interior ( the kids loved the big telly! ) beds were a bit hard and had trouble sleeping , could have done with some more literature of places to visit , as we went to Grange over sands which was a bit of a dump. The location was not remote enough for our liking , we had a workshop next door to us , and the weather was also a bit pants , not our best Sykes experience i'm afraid.
December 2009
The property was of very high standard and as this was the first time we've stayed in a holiday cottage we've been totally spoiled. The decor was excellent and there was such a homely feel from the moment we stepped in. There was so much space in every room and we had plenty of room that the two families that stayed there didn't get under one anothers feet (4 adults, 2 four year olds and a 6 month old). The cottage was ideally located, close to many places to visit and Lindale itself was very quaint and quiet. Couldn't fault the property at all - excellent.
December 2009
Having arrived at the cottage in LINDALE rather earlier than the allocated time, we were met by a young lady who had just finished cleaning it.She was absolutely brilliant and told us everything we wanted to know about the cottage and surrounding area. This is definately the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It is very big and spacious, and finished to a very high specification, situated in a great location for exploring the South Lakes area. There are two pubs nearby, but I wouldnt recommend the bottom one for eating. The one at the top of the hill is far better and has a lovely beer garden if the weather is nice.Be aware, however, that the shop / post office isn't open all day so bring enough supplies for the first couple of days. The supermarkets and shops in Grange-Over-Sands, which is a short drive away ,are well stocked for everything needed during a stay at the cottage. There is nothing negative that I could say about this cottage. It is the best we have ever stayed in and I doubt we will find one as good anywhere in the uk
