Escape to the beautiful Cumbrian village of Cartmel and stay in this luxurious retreat that’s perfect for two, swapping the daily grind for delicious local fare, scenic walks and cosy evenings snuggled by the fire. Endlessly charming and brimming with home comforts, this traditional cottage is nestled at the heart of the village close to the variety of tempting eateries and Michelin-star restaurants. Discover the windswept wilderness of the Lake District National Park by day, and by night, crack open the wine and prepare to unwind in style.

Inside, the open-plan living space is a peaceful sanctuary characterised by mood lighting, fresh decor and a wood burner crackling in the fireplace. Curl up with tasty treats and a good film of an evening, and in the morning, perch at the table with your coffee and croissants to plan your day. The elegant kitchen can be found by climbing a few steps, welcoming hungry guests with country-cottage charm and everything you need to prepare a feast. Follow the handcrafted staircase to the first floor at bedtime to discover a gorgeous bedroom complete with its high ceiling, exposed beams and fabulous en-suite shower room with walk-in shower. On sunny afternoons, the pretty garden is a delight for al fresco BBQs and features a stone shelter for all-weather enjoyment. Roadside parking for one car is available.

Stroll around the village at leisure, visiting the impressive 14th-century priory and the array of independent shops, not forgetting the iconic cheese shop. Grange-over-Sands is a pleasant 2.5-mile walk through the countryside, where you can explore the ornamental gardens and sample artisan produce from the popular bakery. Admire the views of the estuary from the Victorian promenade, and be sure to pick up a few goodies from the chocolate shop to savour later.

Excellently appointed cottage in a great position for visiting Cartmel and the South Lakes. Both the living and bedroom areas are comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped, bright and airy. Rear garden while quiet is let down by a lack of basic maintenance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. We were very impressed with the quality of the furniture and fixtures and fittings. It is very tastefully decorated with very home comfort provided. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything one could possibly need. We loved the cottage and Carmel and would definitely stay again.

A really lovely little property. Feels really spacious and well thought out. Very handy for being close to the village centre but not too busy for through traffic. Parking directly outside the property wasnt an issue despite permits required for the other parking spaces around the village too.

Lovely, warm cottage. Immaculate. Great position, a few minutes walk into the centre of Cartmel. An initial supply of logs would be good, especially when arriving late at night. Many opportunities to support local businesses with many restaurants offering a takeaway service. Great pizza delivery van across the road on Wednesday evenings.

A comfortable, well equipped cottage in a pretty and lively village. However sadly we found the property to be rather poorly managed. There were some cleanliness issues which we did not expect during the pandemic and the heating system was difficult to operate with seemingly a will of its own. It took three phone calls before help arrived. Not goodRead more enough considering the price paid. Hide

The ideal cottage for a couple looking for 5 star accommodation in the perfect location . Friendly interesting town with excellent bistro across the road (everything you require in the cottage if you want to self cater). Locally Holker House and gardens is worth a visit and there are the most beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
