Description(Reference number: 386498)
Hoopers End is a wonderful, end-terrace holiday home set over three floors within a stone barn conversion in Sedgwick, five miles from the market town of Kendal in the Lake District. The property has four bedrooms, three with double beds, including one on the second floor with an en-suite shower room, plus a room with twin beds. There is also a family bathroom with a bath and a separate shower, plus a WC in the utility room on the ground floor. There is a kitchen, and the dining room and sitting room can either be joined as one open plan space or closed off to provide a cosier room to relax by the woodburner-style gas fire. French doors open onto the terraced patio with a built-in seating area, which provides access to the lawned garden at the front of the property. There is off road parking for two cars and beautiful views of undulating Lakeland countryside. A wonderful holiday base for exploring the Lakes.
An historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal sits on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. The Abbot Hall Art Gallery's regular collection exhibits portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
