Wain Gap Cottage
Wain Gap Cottage is located in woodland on the Heaves Estate, four miles from Kendal in Cumbria and four miles from junction 36 of the M6 motorway, just off the A590.
Found at the end of a lane with open fields just over the fence, the cottage was once on the old road to Levens used by the hay wagons, hence the name Wain Gap.
The cottage, has been furnished with great attention to detail to provide a real home from home. It is approached from the lane by stone steps to the garden area behind, which has views of the Kent Estuary. A barbecue and table/chairs are provided for your convenience. The lounge has gas log effect fire, TV/Video and C.D. player/radio and the fully fitted kitchen is equipped with oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/drier and a dining area. Wifi is available.
There are two bedrooms at first floor level, one with King sized bed and one with a double and a single bed. A hairdryer and alarm clocks are provided for your convenience.
The bathroom has a bath with electric shower over. Linen and Gas/Electricity are included in the weekly charge.
For the comfort of other guests, Wain Gap Cottage is totally non-smoking and we regret that we do not allow pets. (Guide Dogs excepted). Children of any age are welcome and a cot/high chair and stairgate are provided. There is ample parking at the side of the cottage.
Guests are also free to wander round the rest of the estate (10 acres) at the centre of which is the Georgian Mansion which is now a Country House Hotel. Meals and drinks may usually be
purchased by residents but please note that on occasions these services may not be available due to private functions. Please check. The Whitelock family personally oversee both the hotel and the cottage and there is always someone on hand should you need any assistance.
Levens Hall ,Levens Village and Sizergh Castle are all about a mile away. Oxenholme Station is 3 miles (main line) and an hourly bus service to both Kendal and the Lakes to the North and the Furness Peninsula and Lancaster to the South passes the bottom of the drive during the day.
