Cocks Close Holidays
Cock's Close, Garnett Bridge, is a small development of a Farmhouse, 3 Scandinavian chalets and a converted Watermill, discreetly situated amidst 24 acres of secluded hill land in the unspoilt Longsleddale Valley, offering a relaxed 'away from it all' atmosphere in an undiscovered valley within the Lake District National Park. A half mile of private river runs through the grounds where trout fishing can be enjoyed in season.
The Local Area
Although the valley is very secluded and offers the opportunity to 'get away from it all', Kendal can be reached by car in only 10 minutes. This is our nearest shopping centre and is a thriving market town steeped in history.
The valley itself is very peaceful and offers spectacular scenery - hill walking on Banninsdale and potter Fell, and no holiday would be complete without the gentle walk to the valley top (Sadgill). For the more energetic, a walk over the top brings you to Haweswater, to the famous submerged village of Mardale which could be seen by visitors during the droughts of 1984 and 1995.
Being in the Lake District National Park, we are well situated for touring all the Lakes and Dales, but we feel sure once you arrive, you will immediately feel that the surroundings have so much to offer that you need go no further. It is not uncommon to see heron, buzzards and pheasant, and otters have returned to the river, but sadly the red squirrels now seem to have departed for good (altough they still survive in the Western lakes).
The local pub has also closed but there are very good pubs in Burneside and Staveley, and the Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley is well woth a visit to those with taste for real ale.
We look forward to welcoming you to our quiet corner of the Lake District, and feel sure that if you are looking for rest and relaxation in comfortable surroundings, Cocks Close has all you need, and more.
