The property

The Badger's Shack is a marvellous, detached lodge near Garnett Bridge, on the outskirts of the historic market town of Kendal. It enjoys spectacular scenery as it's surrounded by the Cumbrian fells. This fantastic property is ideal for two couples or a family of four, with ground-floor accommodation and open-plan living and is only a short distance from the Lake District's best attractions. After parking in one of the two convenient off-road spots, head inside to find a stylishly decorated open-plan living room, where you can snuggle up in front of the Smart TV and warming woodburning stove. When you're hungry, proceed to the kitchen, a well-equipped place with everything you need to prepare excellent, homecooked meals. These meals can be served at the adjacent dining table as you catch up on the day's events. When the sun goes down, make your way to one of the two magnificent king-size bedrooms, the first of which is accompanied by an en-suite shower room and the other enjoying an en-suite bathroom with a luxurious roll-top bath and exposed stonework. Wander out to the beautiful garden, where a barbecue awaits, to take in the breath-taking views first-hand of eastern Kentmere fells and Ulgraves. The Badger's Shack promises a relaxing getaway for you and those who mean the most. This property, together with Refs. 1066265, 1066268, and 1066269, can sleep up to 20 guests.

The estate rests on the outskirts of Garnett Bridge, Cumbria and is a fabulous selection of holiday lettings, including a large, stone-built cottage and three luxury, detached lodges that have been named after the animals that once made them their home. The lodges and their interiors have also been designed by the owners, giving them a very special touch!
