A delightful and surprising stone and slate terraced cottage that offers a well-presented easy to manage layout with two bedrooms and bathroom at first floor level and an open plan living room with wood burning stove and an excellent fitted kitchen along with a cloakroom on the ground floor. A home that offers warmth and character along with a private garden, outbuildings and perhaps most important private parking.

The popular village of Levens is situated on the fringe of the Lake District National Park and boasts a pub with good food and a village store whilst the bustling market town of Kendal with its independent shops, bars, restaurants is just six miles away. Limestone Cottage is easily accessible from the M6, yet the quiet peaceful position within the heart of the village makes this pretty cottage an ideal home for those seeking a bolt hole in the Lake District or as the current vendors do a splendid successful holiday let.
