Arnside House Rental Photos and Description

House in Arnside, Nr. Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Stunning Contemporary Holiday Home With Close Proximity To The Beach, Village, Pubs, Cafes And Shops

The Coach House at Arnside has been totally refurbished in a contemporary style to create a stunning holiday home. Our home is perfect for a family holiday or a short break all year round as the beach, lakes and mountains are only a short distance away. Ideally located in the village of Arnside and only 100 metres from the beach you will experience outstanding views of the Estuary and the Lakeland Peaks. Within the village you will find an array of shops including a Post Office, Hairdressers, Art Gallery, Beauty Salon, Convenience Stores, and Cafes. After a day of sightseeing and activities the village pubs with gardens prove extremely popular with visitors to sit and relax with a drink and soak up the sunset and breathtaking views. Arnside is in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are many walks around Arnside and Silverdale as well as all of the benefits of the Lake District on our doorstep.

About Brian & Diane Potter

Let us introduce ourselves, our names are Brian and Diane and we have two teenagers, a boy and a girl. We live just outside Kendal on the edge of the Lake District and as a family we enjoy walking, travelling and spending time together in this outstanding area of beauty. As a family we have visited many countries but our hearts remain here! We purchased The Coach House and undertook an extensive two year programme of refurbishment to create a home to an extremely high standard and as a family have spent a lot of time at The Coach House and enjoyed all the benefits of the area and all our home has to offer.

Brian & Diane Potter purchased this house in 2011

Why Brian & Diane Potter chose Kendal & South Lakes

Having Lived in Cumbria all our lives and spent alot of time in Arnside we felt the location was perfect for a beach holiday as well as having the Lake and Mountains on our doorstep. The Coach House offers everything in a relaxing yet stunning location without having to experience the busy commercial areas of the Central Lakes.

What makes this house unique

The proximity of the beach is a very short walk of approximately 100 metres and the views are truly outstanding. Something we have never tired off! The area and scenery is amazing and we feel very fortunate to able to live and work in this area. The M6 is extremely accessible and the Rail and Transport Links to Arnside are excellent. The surrounding area and its abundance of attractions will appeal to families, walkers, cyclists and couples.

5 star fabulous Cottage !!

  • 5 of 5

We booked up last minute for 3 nights away at this fabulous holiday home - all of the booking went smoothly and Brian & Diane responded swiftly with the confirmation of our stay. The accommodation itself was exactly how it is described with a fantastic bathroom and open plan kitchen / living area. We were extremely fortunate that the weather was great and we used the house as as a base for our walking adventure locally in Arnside & Silverdale and trips further afield to the lakes. The welcome pack included coffee, milk, cookies & wine as well as toiletries for the bathroom ! An all round perfect base for our trip to the Lake District - thank you Brian & Diane 😀

Stunning property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights and could not have been happier with the accommodation. Everything has been furnished to the highest standard and the welcome pack contained all the little bits you always forget to pack!

The location is fantastic, quiet and secluded yet a stones throw from the beach and a short walk into arnside proper.

A big thank you to the owners for making such a lovely place available to stay in.

I would definitely stay here again.
