About Daryl Graham

The property has a special energy which has been enjoyed by many people over the years.

The river, bridges and garden create a special place to relax, replenish and recharge. Sitting by the river, enjoying the sunshine and a glass of wine has been a much enjoyed pleasure.

Why Daryl Graham chose Kendal

Low Jock Scar Country Estate must be one of the area’s best kept secrets. Head just a few miles North of the historic market town of Kendal where the unspoilt Fawcett Forest dips into the Bannisdale Valley and there sits Low Jock Scar. Tucked alongside the banks of Bannisdale Beck where the sound of the babbling Beck creates an athmosphere like no other and captures perfectly the unique charm of this idyllic location. Bannisdlae Bridges – high and low, both listed, – mark the boundary, with the high bridge sitting on the route of Wainwrights Horseshoe walk.

This delightful cluster of properties sits in several acres of mature gardens and woodland where guests are welcome to meander through the colourful grounds and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the location. With the changing seasons the woodland creates an ever-changing environment to be enjoyed. The bluebells create a carpet of blue in late Spring while the glorious colours of Autumn leaves are hard to beat. Guests will be delighted to spot that the grounds are often frequented by a wide variety of birds and wildlife including woodpecker, deer and hares.

Located in the ‘Gateway to The Lakes’ Low Jock Scar provides an ideal base for guests who are looking to explore. Whilst it may be difficult to drag yourselves away from this perfect spot, both The Lakes and Dales are easily accessible. Head East to Sedbergh, Dent and Hawes or West to Windermere and Bowness. Equally within easy reach for a day out are the Northern Lakes with Ullswater and Haweswater less than an hour’s drive.

For guests looking to stay local, walks and cycle routes for all abilities can be found. Just a few miles away, the town of Kendal offers something for everyone. A popular historic market town, Kendal provides a castle, historic buildings and its famous ‘yards’, a riverside setting, shops for all and a great selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants to be enjoyed.

What makes this cottage unique

Low Jock Scar has a very special atmosphere of it's own, feeling well away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life, but within 8 minutes easy drive of the useful pleasant town of Kendal.

A warm welcome from owners Roslyn and John. We felt very well provided for. Extremely comfy bed with modern ensuite including bath and good shower. Well equipped compact kitchen. Comfortable lounge/diner. The cottage is well located on the outskirts of Kendal and the edge of the Lake District about 14 miles from Windermere.

Chill Time

  • 5 of 5

Although we had booked Tulip Cottage, due to a misunderstanding we ended up with Lily Cottage. But I have to say it was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very nicely presented. The owner Ros was very friendly and helpful. I cannot find fault with anything, a lovely peaceful break in beautiful surroundings . We would love to return and this time have Tulip Cottage and its log burner.

I understand that we have a 3 unit entry and We do our best to give accurate descriptions of each unit and descriptions for each photo. I am glad that you enjoyed your holiday and wish you continuing better health. Roslyn
