Cottage in Underbarrow, Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Quiet Location, 10 Minutes From Kendal
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 Kendal
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.

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.

Cosy cottage in quiet village.
Orphan Cragg is a lovely cottage, with superb views of the countryside and Scout Scar. It is ideally located for the Lake District and much quieter than the main tourist spots. The local pub serves great food, although you must book ahead. There is lots to do within a short drive: boating/sailing on Windermere, quad biking/clay shooting with Outdoor Adventures just south of Kendal. Abbott Gallery and Kendal Museum both worth a visit too.
A lovely cottage in a beautiful setting
We stayed in Orphan Crag for 2 weeks. It's a comfortable, well-equipped cottage in a peaceful location but within easy access to Kendal and surroundings. Some really good walking, quiet lanes and beautiful views. The cottage has a nice selection of maps, guides and books on local history and landscapes, plus some well-thumbed thrillers in case of rain. We loved our stay and will come again.
Thank you for your review. So pleased you liked our cottage, and we’d love to welcome you back.
This cottage is in a lovely location. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need.
Accommodation had everything you needed and was very clean and well maintained. The location is great as everything we wanted to do with the kids was no more then 25mins away.
Cottage was delightful, we had a few teething issues with the heating and both fires did not work which was a shame, also the door was a struggle to open and close, however other than that, everything was very homely and a pleasure to stay in :)
I’m glad you liked the cottage, and sorry you had some little teething problems - but thanks for mentioning them as it enables us to deal with them straight away. We’ve had a look at the door and that problem is now resolved. The wood burning stove is working fine and we’ll take a look at the electric fire, although the electric heating is usually more than enough to keep the cottage warm.
Thanks again for your feedback and we’d love to welcome you back sometime.
Brilliant holiday accommodation
This property had all we wanted for our holiday. Beautiful location, real character in absolute abundance and an extremely homely feel. I wouldn't hesitate holidaying at this property again for sure. Great pub/restaurant down the road and the view of Scout Scar and surrounding countryside from the rear of the house is incredible.
Easy access from the M6, a car is essential.
