Greystones Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Greystones is a welcoming cottage in Milton near Milnthorpe. The cottage has a double and a twin on the second floor, along with a shower room, and on the ground floor is a twin and a shower room. The first floor has the open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is ample off road parking and a private patio with furniture and BBQ. Greystones enjoys excellent road links, which makes it ideal for touring the Lake District National Park, Cumbrian coastline and more.

Once an important medieval market town, the settlement of Milnthorpe is located in the southern Lake District between Kendal and Carnforth. Just a few miles from the seaside village of Arnside, evidence of Milnthorpe's history can still be found amongst the narrow lanes and historic buildings, illustrating a time before the motor car. Set in lovely rolling countryside, the area also offers many great outdoor activities including the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis with its tropical hall and butterfly house. Dallam Tower and Levens Hall - both of which are historic stately homes with deer parks, topiary and ornamental gardens - provide a great day out for visitors. Other excellent attractions include Leighton Hall, Sizergh Castle, the Great Lakes Aquarium, Windermere and Grizedale Forest – all of which are located within easy reach.

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.

This is a lovely cottage which has everything you could ask for. The parking facilities are brilliant. The owners are lovely and more than happy to help any way they can. Lots of little extras which shows how much the owners care. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and I hope to return.

The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable stay; all new furnishings, spotlessly clean, finishing touches, every detail was included. Situated in a peaceful location, very quiet.

Greystones is lovely and the way it is set out is very good, 3 floors - Bedrooms top and bottom and kitchen diner/ Lounge in between, A lovely couple run it and they are close enough to solve any problems but leave you to enjoy your holiday. I would recommend this to anyone.

Good location for walks and sightseeing. Very close to road connections in the region; but still felt rural and quiet. We were made to feel most welcome by our host and found her to be very helpful. Cottage was lovely and very comfortable. Milton was a very picturesque hamlet; although driving down the narrow country lanes was a bit daunting at first, we soon got used to it and sussed out when best to avoid other road users. We were fortunate to enjoy wonderful weather, so made good use of it through day trips and scenic walks and really did not have time to visit any of the big house attractions or museums in the area. Good base for visiting the Southern Lakes and surrounding area.

We had a great stay at Greystones, there where 3 of us and the dog. When we arrived we had a warm welcome off the owner, who couldn't have done enough for us. There was milk, bread,biscuits and other goodies provided, which was a nice thoughtful thing to do. The accommodation was on three floors which was a bedroom and shower room with wc on the bottom floor, the middle floor was the kitchen/diner/lounge which was big enough for a large family. The top floor had another two bedrooms and shower/wc room. As holiday accommodation goes this must be rated high for self catering, I have stayed in a few and this rates as one of the best I have stayed in. There are supermarkets not to far away in Kendal and Milnthorpe, with a local shop and bakery closer. There are plenty of nice eating places nearby, most are dog friendly to. It's not just the Lake District close by, your not to far from the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian coast.

Can't praise this place enough. Even though its 'self catering' when we arrived they'd popped some fresh milk, coffee, fruit and biscuits in ready to get us set up. The whole cottage was immaculate throughout - the devil is in the detail and little touches like a big draw full of DVDs kept our 2 small boys entertained in the evenings... They also really appreciated the 'night lights' in the hallways that came on in evenings too! The facilities inside all felt top quality and we weren't left needing for anything, it comfortably slept 6 of us. The lady who ran the cottage was lovely and really keen to make sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay. 5 stars, highly recommended!
