Benson Hall


The cottage was built in 1750 as a small holding. It is one of a number of similar properties mixed in with modern bungalows, overlooking the Lythe Valley with views of the Lake District mountains across the valley. The cottage is situated in a small hamlet 3/4 mile from Levens village and 6 miles south of Kendal on the fringe of the English Lake District. it is easily reached from the M6 motorway and the Kendal link road, being approximately 1.6 miles from latter. The nearest village, Levens, is just 15 minutes walk away and consists of a Post Office, Hairdressers and a General Store selling newspapers in addition to general provisions. There is a Public House, the Hare & Hounds and two further Public Houses within two miles of the cottage. Bar meals are available at these Public Houses. Levens is served by an infrequent local bus service, however a car is essential to get the best out of the area. The nearest town is Kendal, a typical market town. On the outskirts of Kendal can be found two supermarkets, one at either end of the town. The stone built cottage stands in its own grounds, completely fenced off and although it is situated in a quiet position it is not isolated. There is sufficient space within the grounds to accommodate two medium sized cars. The garden consists mainly of an orchard containing a number of fruit trees. The orchard is on a slope and there is an approximately 3 ft high retaining wall adjacent to the path at the rear of the cottage. Please be aware of this where very young children are concerned, however there is still plenty of space at the side of the cottage to be able to play safely. The cottage consists of on the ground floor, a lounge, dining room and a kitchen. On the first floor can be found two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom. The re-furbished kitchen is equipped with new units, automatic washing machine, electric oven and hobs, microwave oven, fridge freezer plus a good supply of crockery, cutlery and utensils. The dining room is equipped with dining table and chairs plus a two seater settee, the lounge is equipped with a three seater settee and two easy chairs. Both the dining room and lounge have a colour TV with Sky freesat. Heating is by individual electric heaters and night storage heaters. Electricity is included in the rental price. The cottage will accommodate five persons however because the single bed is smaller in width than normal ( 30" ) it is suggested that it may not be suitable for an adult. Please note that we normally don't provide bed linen or towels. however we can hire bed linen for you ( but not towels ) if you wish at a fee of £10 for each bed used. This would be paid directly to the owners. Please advise if you require this service when booking or enquire for further details. You are advised to take a look at the owners website. Please note that the stairs are a little steeper than normal.

It’s the magnificent scenery that attracts so many holidaymakers to the Lake District. And you’ll find our holiday cottages in Cumbria and the Lakes are perfectly located to make the most of what is arguably the most beautiful region in England.

The Lake District National Park features stunning scenery of high fells and majestic lakes. This is ideal walking country, particularly over the many hills. The Lake District has the highest hills in England, including Scafell Pike, the country’s highest point. And of course there are the lakes themselves: glorious Windermere, pretty Derwent Water and beautiful Ullswater are just some of the highlights of our Cumbria and the Lakes cottage holidays.

For the historically minded, Cumbria offers a wealth of Celtic monuments, Roman remains, stately homes and ruined abbeys. Carlisle still has some of its ancient walls standing, as well as a Norman castle, and the western part of Hadrian’s Wall is nearby. Other places of interest include Penrith, with its castle and remarkably unchanged market square; Keswick, which was once the centre of pencil manufacturing; the busy market town of Kendal and Cockermouth, Wordsworth’s birthplace
