From Kendal town centre take the Stricklandgate road out of the town signposted to Windermere. At the traffic lights by St Thomas's Church fork right into Burneside Road. Follow the road passing under a railway bridge. Just as the road starts to climb a hill (opposite Briarigg) turn right into Kentrigg. Follow the private road for a short distance to where it forks. Keep left and the entrance to Watersmeet is immediately on the right-hand side.
The property occupies an elevated position overlooking the River Kent enjoying spectacular views across Kendal towards the surrounding countryside and fells.
The property is located in one of Kendals most sought after residential areas. Kentrigg and Kent Lea are private roads and the neighbourhood is very private and exclusive as a result.
