Welcome to One Long Houses

One Long Houses, Kentmere, is a luxury holiday rental in the Lake District in England. An 18th Century farmhouse and barn with stunning views across the Kentmere valley to the mountains beyond. We poured much effort and love into the conservation-architect designed renovation over 2016-2018 and were delighted to be awarded Best Restoration Project 2018 by Period Living Magazine. This is a six bedroom family holiday cottage with plenty of separate living space across the giant barn living room, hall/snug, kitchen, gallery-library and sun/dining room - warmed with two wood-burners and an open fire. Surrounded front and back by fenced garden overlooking the fields, with working sheep farms beyond. There are numerous walks straight from the front door. We have moved away from the big agency chains and are independently managing holiday bookings to provide a more personal service. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
