    This is a superb Grade II listed, end-terraced cottage in the Lake District National Park, on the edge of the Lowther Castle Estate. This former workers cottage was built in the 1770s and is situated in a conservation village, designed by the renowned architect Robert Adam, for the 1st Earl of Lonsdale. Set amongst other sandstone cottages, centred around lawned courtyards, the cottage has an abundance of charm and character of its own from its previous history. Crescent Cottage has been carefully furnished and well-equipped to create a particularly appealing and comfortable property for guests. Whilst retaining the authentic feel of this delightful cottage, the owners have used contemporary accents alongside the classic country cottage furnishings, resulting in a stylish home from home. Externally, a pleasant garden area offers space to enjoy the delightful surroundings on warmer days, and creates the ideal spot for a quiet drink after a busy day exploring.
    A short distance from the pretty village of Askham, Crescent Cottage is ideally situated for exploring Ullswater, Keswick and enjoying the delights of the northern Lakes. Alternatively, the beautiful Eden Valley is on the doorstep for walks, breathtaking scenery and quaint villages offering Cumbrian hospitality at its finest, with the market town of Penrith just 4 miles away. Lowther model village was said to have been built in order to move the original village, and to improve the view from Lowther Castle. A visitor attraction in itself, the Lowther Estate offers guests a wealth of experiences, including Lowther Castle with its stunning Gothic profile, and the extensive gardens and picturesque grounds running down to the River Lowther. Annual events include The Lowther Show held every August, a family orientated traditional country fair and Kendal Calling, an annual music festival held every July with hundreds of bands. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    We had a great holiday staying at Crescent Cottage. It’s in a good location and easy to get to the majority of the Lake District (the SW is a bit of a trek). Great local amenities (Shop; Pub Restaurants & even Ice Cream!) a short drive or nice walk away. The property is furnished well and is very cosy. Kitchen amenities are great and even rainy days are thought of with plenty of books and board games. Unfortunately we couldn’t submit this review without mentioning the double bed on which it is almost impossible to sleep due to it being excessively soft and even the slightest movement of your arm causing the bed to squeak so much so that we had to resort to sleeping in the single beds in the second bedroom by the end of the week. With such a well furnished property it’s amazing that this has been overlooked. If this issue is resolved this is a lovely property and we would certainly recommend as a place to stay for a holiday in the Lake District.

    The quality of the letting was of the highest order and left no room for adverse comments. My wife and I have holidayed in the area for many years now and have used a number of different properties, this particular one ticked all the boxes and we both agree that we would be happy to return to the same. Particular note has to be made of the quality of the workmanship by the installers of practically everything, flooring, woodwork and fitting out of the kitchen etc. The standard of equipment was excellent and nothing was missing from any of the things that the customer expected. A-STAR. KM

    The cottage is amazing, well kept and with all the modern conveniences. There's enough local attractions to keep you busy for a few days without needing the car. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful, idyllic cottage, had everything we needed, excellent decor, and loved the fire! Perfect for families and a dog ? Lowther and Askam have some lovely walks, try the Punchbowl at Askam for Sunday dinner. Ullswater a short drive, certainly worth a visit and include a short trip on the steamer. Will certainly visit this cottage again!

    A superbly appointed cottage presented to the highest standard. Pretty much faultless. Much thought has gone into the renovation of the cottage and it has been beautifully decorated internally.

    We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at crescent cottage. Extremely comfortable cottage with lots of character that survived all that storm Gareth had to throw at it. The perfect place to come back to after walking the beautiful lakes - 2 adults and 1 Labrador were very impressed. With any luck, we will be back

    Personal taste but the bed in the main bed room was much too soft. Also the bed in the twin was very squeaky! Overall though a lovely cosy cottage.

    The cottage is beautifully decorated and nicely laid out, however we were slightly disappointed by having to buy all of the items for the fire, given the price paid and the wood shown in the picture being only for view. Also we had to pull the drain out of the shower for it to not overflow, which showed a large amount of hair built up, meaning this isn't being cleaned properly. The cottage is lovely, and we really enjoyed our stay here, however the above were both disappointing given the price certainly isn't cheap.

    Overall lovely cottage. I only gave cleanliness a 9 as we found the shower plug hole blocked, we found a few sticky sweet wrappers under sofa and also the oven gloves were very dirty which we chucked in the washing machine for the next residents. However these little bits did not put us off as it was such a beautifully decorated property which we would definitely come back to.
