Perfectly snuggled between Kendal and Lake Windermere is the lovely Lyth Valley. Just 15 minutes to the heart of it from junction 36 of the M6 yet full of peace and tranquillity. Enjoy the rolling countryside found in this part of the south eastern Lake District with the dramatic landscape found a stones throw away to the north and west.
People may have heard of the Lyth Valley, being famous for its Damson’s as well as some excellent places to eat and drink yet this area still retains its peace and tranquillity. In Brigsteer itself are two excellent pubs whilst a 2 mile drive or very manageable walk sees guests being treated to the food and beverages on offer at the award winning Punch Bowl Inn at Crosthwaite. Broad Oak is set within a private estate, 17 acres to be exact, containing woodland, tarns and ponds and the hot tub installed last year has proved a stunning addition to this holiday let, all this and just 5 miles from Lake Windermere and less than 4 miles from Kendal.
The area has been notable confirmed in its beauty with its inclusion in the “Lonely Planet’s Beautiful World” book. The book has been published to showcase beautiful locations across the globe and the following is down in print as “The Lyth Valley – The unspoiled Lyth Valley is tucked in a hidden corner of Cumbria, where trees are laden with fruit and rolling hills are the most magnificent green.”
