About Lynn Rawcliffe

I have been letting holiday cottages in the lakes since 2004 and offer luxury holiday accommodation. I am very keen to ensure that all my guests in all my cottages are always very well satisfied and depart the cottages having had a marvelous holiday. I decided quite early on to offer accommodation which allows guests to bring their dogs whilst still enjoying luxurious surrounding, I am a dog owner myself and always found it difficult to find good quality holiday lets that also allow dogs. I am very proud of the fact that I have managed to combine both.

Lynn Rawcliffe purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynn Rawcliffe chose Kendal & South Lakes

The Haven is a very special property, it took me a full year to renovate and enlarge to add on a large extension and conservatory which now capture the magnificent views, which no matter what time of year it is, always remain spectacular. The house is modern with open plan living, which has proven to be successful when occupied by large groups or large families. I always prefer to meet and greet guests to offer that personal touch and to offer ideas of where to go etc in the surrounding area, as Newby bridge has a lot to offer.

What makes this house unique

As previously mentioned, the views from every window are very special, the walks and the fact that fell foot park is right next door and can be accessed via the field and walk which runs by the river. the garden is great for entertaining and the fire pit at the bottom of the garden is always a hit with guests. there is also a spacious hot tub which is available to guests all year round..

Great place for a large family group

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay if you are a large family group. Large open plan living / dining / cooking area so no one has to feel left out. Plenty of comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms so that everyone can have their own privacy and the outside space is great too. Safe garden for children to play in, large hot tub and lots of outdoor seating to enjoy. We were blessed with perfect weather for the whole of our stay and loved opening the bi-fold doors to the garden area so we could enjoy the sunshine both morning and evening. There's lots to do in the local area, Windermere boat trip just round the corner at Newby Bridge, small shop at petrol station just up the road and only a short drive to Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere if you need more shopping, easy walks and bike rides from the house, but the best bit of all was the beautiful countryside all around. A great holiday, we all loved it!

Great house in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant house for a family and friends get together over the Easter weekend. Large enough that 10 people and 2 dogs didn't feel cramped. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean. Weather wasn't great over the weekend but that didn't stop the hot tub from being used! We also got use out of the BBQ and the fire pit on the first night which was a great way to spend the first evening. The gate access to the field behind was very useful for walking the dogs and it's not far to walk to the lake from the house.

We also had a lovely meal at the Anglers Arms which is a 5 min drive down the road.

Overall a great stay and would definitely stay again. :-)

Great house and great location...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family stay for a 50th birthday celebration. Lynn met us upon arrival and explained everything we needed to know. The house exceeded expectations and was great for children. The weather wasn't great so we didn't get a chance to use the wonderful decking area and garden. It's close to local hotels although there is not a roadside path outside the house on the main road but manageable with some high vis clothing and a torch for night. Would definitely use the house again.

Lovely house but a bit tired now

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely 4 night stay here, great walks on doorstep and very central for Lakes.

However Owner wasn't there on our arrival with key and had to figure everything out ourselves, electric gate not working but still secure enough.

House is very well used now and appreciate guests staying all year round but needing some work.

Garden lovely and I know it's a full time job keeping it so, but we wouldn't have minded if the gardener had been working about during our stay as an impossible task in 2 hours a week.

Overall had a very good break at The Haven.

Owner's Response: Not quite sure from review what the customer meant by looking tired! The exterior is booked in to be painted however with back to back bookings during peak season the outside maintenance is normally done at the end of the season The interior however is well maintained and rooms are painted whenever necessary, and all previous guests have been more than happy, so I am finding it hard to respond to the review, given that they have not stated in detail exactly what they considered to be an issue. I was unfortunatly unable to greet these guests as I had to drive back to Lytham that day, so the key was left in a key safe for them. I e-mailed previously all the relevant information for the house which included instructions for how everything worked which is generally the case with all holiday lets, as it is rare that owners are there to meet the guests. I prefer to meet and show guests round, even though it isn't necessary.
