Facts about what Burton-in-Kendal offers for Cottage Breaks


Burton-in-Kendal itself is a thriving village which is located in the part of Cumbria that was historically, Westmorland. There is a thriving community in the village and a pub which used to be a coaching inn for stagecoaches that dates back to as early as 1763. The village market cross, built in the 1700s was used for criminals who were chained to it in leg irons. As you stroll up the main street, you’ll observe several Georgian houses. Also, visit the Church of St. James, which goes back to Norman times but went through a few restoration projects and incorporates different architectural styles. If you want horse riding, angling or a golf course, you will find good locations for these.

The market towns of Kirkby Lonsdale and Kendal are a short drive away, both offering shopping opportunities and eating-places. Whilst enjoying a cottage holiday why not visit the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal?  There you can see a film or stage production or relax in the bar and restaurant.
