Etland House Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This semi-detached character property is set in a small rural hamlet called Preston Patrick, amid lovely rolling countryside just six miles from the pretty town of Kirkby Lonsdale. The cottage has been converted to an extremely high standard, and ensures that character features and stylish decor sit alongside modern comforts. The living area is on the first floor, and boasts a Juliet balcony to enjoy the lovely views, as well as a well-equipped kitchen and a woodburner. There are doors to a spacious terrace, making this holiday home an ideal base for large groups of friends or family to enjoy the area together. En-suites to some of the bedrooms, and geothermal heating and solar panels mean this cottage is both eco-friendly and convenient for families. Close to both the Lakes and Dales National Parks, this cottage makes a wonderful base for groups.

Set peacefully in the South Cumbrian countryside and consisting of a scattering of rural farms and dwellings, the small hamlet of Preston Patrick enjoys beautiful views over nearby Farleton Knott and the distant Lakeland Fells. For a quiet stroll, head for Hutton Roof Crags Nature Reserve, or for a cup of tea, a relaxing meal or to browse the shops head for the town of Kirkby Lonsdale, just 6 miles away, which has attractive architecture and is home to the famous Devils Bridge. The historic riverside town of Kendal is within easy reach, as is the picturesque Lune Valley or the charming villages of Sedburgh. Settle or Arnside. A wonderful base for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park. A superb base whatever the time of year!

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.

What a fantastic place to celebrate our parents wed. ann. with family traveling from Ireland, Keighley and Leeds ages 2-84. Etland House was so relaxing comfortable and warm we never left the house .

From the minute we first arrived and were welcomed by the owner we knew this would be a good holiday. The accommodation was excellent in every respect,and the cake was delicious!

Excellent service with a wonderful chocolate cake as a welcome. The house was beautiful and an ideal spot for 12 lady golfers! Located within very easy reach of at least 8 courses and the Grange coast which seemed only 10 minutes away. I have no complaints about location, service, quality of accommodation, everything was excellent, including the weather.

The property was perfect for the size of our family, it was homely and welcoming with stunning views. Mrs Robinson was very helpful and allowed the children in our party to use the large meadow at the back of the house for playing which was a huge bonus. The facilities in the cottage were very good, we saw lots of the natural world eg hares in the meadow, a baby calf being born and birds of prey in the meadow. The weather was stunning too which made everything seem better.

Mrs Rischitor
October 2011
We picked Etland House as it seemed just the right place for a gathering of four families and it couldn't have been more right! A very good holiday home, nicely arranged, contemporary decor and furnishings, and well sized throughout. The kitchen was also well organized, we did not have any problem to cater for the adults as well as for children. Moreover, exploiting a window of opportunity that the weather offered us, we even managed a BBQ in the garden! All in all we had a super nice weekend, everybody was happy and pleased with the stay. Thank you very much!

Very few houses can accommodate 12 or thirteen people. This was the perfect size and the fact most of the beds could be singles made it even better.
Mrs Duffield
January 2011
It was the perfect place for our family party of 13 from N Ireland, Keighley and Leeds to celebrate our parents/grandparents Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Plenty of space, not on top of one another. Would definitely go back.

September 2015
Just returned from a weekend with close friends to celebrate my 40th. From the chocolate cake welcoming us on arrival to the wood waiting for us by the fireplace, Etland House is perfect. It's a remote location but only a few miles from a large Asda with plenty of room for 13 of us, a really well equipped kitchen, large bedrooms and wonderful middle floor kitchen and lounge. The lady and gent we dealt with over our stay were lovely and nothing was ever too much trouble. If we ever have a large group again, there's no doubt we'll return here.

Lots of room for 13 of us to sleep, eat, cook, barbecue and relax! We also had a lovely walk around the area and a fantastic meal at The Kingfisher restaurant!

Lovely house in a beautiful environment. It's a setback far enough from the main roads so you don't hear a lot of traffic. The closest supermarket is a 10 minute drive. The house is well maintained, the kitchen is well-equipped and the rooms are a good size. The owner is friendly and helpful and left to a nice fresh cake to welcome us to the house. Definitely would recommend the place.
