Nestling at the foot of Hampsfell and enjoying magnificent views across Cartmel Valley, it was built in 1810 and originally known as Langlands, probably because if a Scottish connection, and reflects the elegance of that age.Hidden by the old house lies a secluded courtyard where buildings that were once filled with the bustling activity of dairymaids, housekeepers and gardeners, have now been transformed into peaceful holiday cottages.
Longlands has consistently won the highest awards from the English Tourist Board for quality, providing guests with the assurance they need booking a holiday cottage.
One of main features of Longlands has to be the garden. The walled kitchen garden is a perfect place if you want to do absolutely nothing whilst on holiday than relax on a deck chair.
Work on restoring the garden to it's former glory is well underway. Guests will be able to see an abundance of apple trees, traditional box hedges, asparagus beds, beds of strawberries and other soft fruit and an extensive vegetable area which is used to supply the owners restaurants and the main house.
