Artistically vibrant and luxuriously comfortable
What better way to be greeted than by a home-made afternoon tea! Be it in the conservatory, garden terrace or when the weather is inclement, beside a cosy fire in the drawing room. Lucy has made Cook House into a most comfortable base for her bed and breakfast guests – light and sunny and furnished with fine art, furniture, and family photographs.
As its name implies, the house was formerly a cook house for weary travellers making their way across the valley. Charmingly typical of this beautiful area, Cook House is a perfectly located Wolsey Lodge for exploring the Southern Lakes of the Lake District as well as a convenient stop off on the way to Scotland. Situated in the historic village of Levens in Cumbria overlooking Morecambe Bay and the Kent Estuary, which together form a dramatically changing backdrop.
Both the well-appointed guest’s rooms, one with an en-suite and the other a private bathroom overlook a rose and box garden, which is just one part of the pretty gardens surrounding Cook House, all of which have been designed by Lucy.
Cook House suggests
Dine in. Lucy is a very good cook and a natural hostess. Local ingredients rule, with plenty of vegetables and herbs fresh from the garden.

Levens is a pretty village just 4 miles from Kendal. Close by and open to the visitors is the Elizabethan family home of Levens Hall with its worldwide famous topiary garden. Sizergh Castle, Holker Hall, and Leighton Hall are all close by. The damson blossom in the Lyth Valley in Spring is worth a visit, and of course, the delights of the Lake District are on the doorstep.
"A thoroughly enjoyable four day stay. On arrival, tea with a superb homemade cake. Suppers and breakfasts were excellent, I am sure Cardinal Wolsey would also have been impressed!"
