About 3 Courtyard Cottage

In a courtyard setting on the Sizergh estate, this beautiful cottage is a great base for the Lakes.

3 Courtyard Cottage sits at the heart of the vibrant working estate of Sizergh Castle and backs onto its famous gardens. The three-bedroom cottage is part of a courtyard which was once the castle’s stables and retains its original wooden beams inside. After a renovation, it now includes all the mod cons and fine interior styling, adding a little luxury to your stay. 

The mighty medieval castle provides the backdrop for your stay. As a guest you’re invited to explore the castle grounds free of charge, as well as countryside surrounding it. There are lots of walks across the estate, many with panoramic views across Morecambe Bay and the Lakeland fells. Be sure to walk along Scout Scar, a spectacular limestone pavement.

Sizergh Castle estate stands within the Lake District National Park, with the southern shores of Lake Windermere less than a 30-minute drive from here. For the nearest shops and cafes, drive just 10 minutes into the historic market town of Kendal.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
