The Sheep Pen is a fantastic completely renovated property located near the small hamlet of Crook.  Situated only 5 miles from Bowness on Windemere and 3 miles from the market town of Kendal. Dog friendly and with a great local pub within 10 minutes walking distance. This is an ideal base to explore the Lake District National Park. 

Entering the property you can instantly feel that it has been finished to a high standard. To the right up two steps is the modern contemporary bathroom with its double sized walk-in shower, large sink and heated mirror. The bathroom is tiled in granite with an oak floor which runs throughout the property.

Down the stairs (watch your head) as this is an old building the headroom to the lower area is quite low so you will need to be careful. 

The downstairs is an open plan living room and a fully fitted equipped modern kitchen with oven, microwave, and hob. The room is completed by a large comfortable sofa, flat screen TV and Bluetooth speaker with a small dining table, a perfect room for relaxing after a days exploring. Underfloor heating runs below the entire ground floor, keeping you comfortable on the chilly winter days. 

Just off the living area is the bedroom complete with a luxurious king size bed and plenty of storage space. (The bed can be split into two singles if this is required please state at the time of booking)

There is an abundance of natural light in the downstairs area, with windows giving views over the garden area and countryside beyond.

Outside there is a fully enclosed garden, with a private area designated for use of guests staying at The Sheep Pen, here you have a table and chairs which is a great spot for a morning coffee or indeed an evening glass of wine, taking in the views of the rolling countryside.

WIFI is included.

Off road car parking is available directly outside the property

Cycle Storage is provided.

NB: The property is next to a road so some road noise may be experienced. 

NB: There is a low ceiling on the stairs to the downstairs living area.

NB: Due to the open-plan layout of the property The Sheep Pen is not suitable for children.








We had such a lovely 4 day stay here, upon booking via the Original Cottages website I asked on the special requests if they could do anything to make it special as it was my partners birthday, there was a birthday card with a bottle of prosecco and little bottle of local gin with glasses ready for us on arrival which was so lovely of them! The property was spotless and had all the utensils we needed to cook our meals as being self-catering during this pandemic was important. The outside seating area is lovely to enjoy the last bit of sunshine in the evening and the bed was really comfy too which is always needed after a long day out walking. We could not have picked a better property to stay in and the location was great too, we travelled to lots of different areas from where we was staying and it was initially easy to find upon arrival on the directions provided. Also the car was parked right outside the door so it was easy for us to carry our belongings in and knowing we had a allocated parking space. Highly recommend this to anyone who is considering staying in the Lake District. Amazing weekend!
