About Holeslack Farmhouse

Contemporary and rustic combine in this Grade II listed farmhouse on the Sizergh estate.

Stay in this timeless Grade II listed farmhouse where rustic original features are complimented with modern updates. You’ll be cooking in a glossy kitchen, climbing a 16th-century spiralling staircase and sleeping next to grand oak cupboards; it’s a real mix of old and new. The four-bedroom cottage sits on the Sizergh estate, with views of the medieval castle and across the surrounding countryside. 

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 at the gateway to the Lake District, 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.
