Fancy living the rural dream? welcome to Yew Wood. A delightful rural property- with the convenience of being just a short drive from Kendal and Windermere likely appeal to those seeking a country lifestyle. A true detached bungalow, built in the 1960’s surrounded by private gardens and fields beyond. The property has been modernised and beautifully finished over the last few years to now be a modern, comfortable, and stylish home.   Offering a fitted kitchen, dining area, sitting room and sunroom as well as three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and a family bathroom. Outside you will find wrap around gardens to three sides of the property, a larger than average garage, undercroft offering usable storage area and a private driveway that can accommodate several vehicles.   

Yew Wood, enjoys a private rural setting in the Gilpin Valley between Crook, Crosthwaite and Winster. This area has several great eating places within a relatively short drive with The Brown Horse at Winster, The Black Labrador and Punch Bowl at Underbarrow, The Wild Boar and The Sun Inn at Crook being the nearest and all worth a visit. For special occasions there are also several fine dining establishments in the valley and indeed in the Lake District as a whole.

It is conveniently placed for local facilities in Windermere, a wider range of amenities in Kendal connection to the road and rail network via Oxenholme station on the main west coast line and access to the M6 at J36. If you have children of school age, then there are primary schools in Windermere, Crosthwaite and Kendal and secondary schools in Kendal and at Troutbeck Bridge. Whether you walk, run or cycle there are lots of great routes right from the door and of course, further afield the whole of the Lake District is accessible from this location.

From the M6 J36 follow the signs Kendal and then Windermere. At the north end of Kendal at the end of the town’s bypass is the large Plumgarths roundabout. Take the first exit onto the B5284, passing through the village of Crook (with The Sun Inn on your right). Continue for around 1.5 miles and upon reaching The Wild Boar Hotel (also on the right) turn left, towards Winster and follow the single track lane. Near the brow of the hill, turn left, there is a sign on the wall at this point for Gilpin Lake House, if you pass the entrance to the Lake House, you’ve gone too far. Follow the lane down which leads you to the bottom of the valley, passing Gilpin Mill on your right head over the river and climb the hill and take the next right hand turn. Yew Wood is the first property on the right hand side with gates opening onto the drive and further parking space just off the road further along.
