Cottage in Underbarrow, Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Quiet Location, 10 Minutes From Kendal
This cosy three-bedroom cottage has recently been refurbished and offers comfortable accommodation for six people. The oldest parts of Orphan Crag are believed to date from the 17th century, with the property retaining many original features, such as plethora of oak beams. The cottage has been sympathetically refurbished, incorporating a wood burning stove, fully equipped kitchen and cosy dining and living rooms.
Situated in the small village of Underbarrow within the Lake District National Park, Orphan Crag provides an excellent base for exploring the local area, by foot or car. Tucked away at the head of the beautiful Lyth Valley, the property is in an ideal location in which to enjoy the stunning local scenery, as well as providing easy access to the heart of the Lakes.
The village boasts a pub serving excellent food whilst the bustling market town of Kendal, with its many shops, is just a short drive away. There are several other local eateries in the surrounding villages and Staveley, ten minutes drive away, is home to the Hawkshead Brewery. Just a little further and you reach the town of Bowness and Lake Windermere.

About Heather Grover
We live in Nottinghamshire and have three grown up children. We both work and spent most of our spare time in 2014 completely refurbishing the cottage with the help of friends and family. We love walking, and enjoy a good meal out in a local pub or restaurant, and the cottage is perfect for both of these.
Heather Grover purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Heather Grover chose Crosthwaite and Lyth
We wanted to buy a cottage in the Lakes and Orphan Crag ticked all the boxes, being close to the central Lakes area but slightly off the beaten track.
What makes this Cottage unique
Orphan Crag is just a few minutes drive from Kendal and a short stroll from an excellent local pub selling good beer and serving excellent food at reasonable prices.

Beautiful cottage in the Lake district
Beautiful cottage and very well equipped. Thoroughly recommended
Thank you for your review, and pleased you enjoyed our cottage.
Cosy, peaceful and well equipped cottage
Would like to have stayed longer!. A lovely area with some easy walks, feels remote but is quite accessible to Kendal.
Perfect Cottage for the Lakes
Had a lovely stay here, with everything we could need in the house, thank you!
A beautiful cottage that was perfect for our family of 5
Absolutely loved this clean and modern country cottage. Would be very happy to visit again and highly recommend it.
This is a gem of a cottage in a quiet location. Tastefully renovated, spotlessly clean and everything as advertised. Comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. Perfect for access to the tourist spots (without the crowds) and for evening walks along Scout Scar. When the sun shines, it's difficult to fault the lovely Lyth valley. Excellent pubs within walking distance.
Great location, lovely size cottage for our group
Very clean cottage, local pub does good food, perfect location, loved the complimentary wine on arrival. Will recommend to others :-)
Easy access from the M6, a car is essential.
