A lovely retreat in the centre of the picturesque village of Cartmel, this pretty cottage makes a fantastic getaway for families, couples and small groups of friends exploring this stunning part of the Lake District. Providing warm and welcoming accommodation for six guests, the property is close to several popular restaurants and shops, including the village shop which is home to Cartmel’s own sticky toffee pudding. Close to Cartmel Racecourse (within a quarter of a mile), the cottage is ideally situated for walkers, climbers and cyclists discovering local fells and woodland.

Situated in the village square, the cottage’s unassuming exterior belies a spacious, cosy and friendly interior. The pretty lounge has been tastefully decorated and furnished. Steps lead down into the elegant dining room, which is a perfect spot for a romantic meal or a small family celebration. The light and stylish kitchen is equipped with a wide range of useful appliances. There are two chic and relaxing king-size first-floor bedrooms: the master bedroom has an en-suite shower and dressing room, while the second bedroom has access to a bathroom and furnished dressing room. Steep, narrow-tread stairs lead to the king-size attic bedroom with pitched ceiling and exposed beams. Several steps lead into the cosy snug room – crisscrossed with vast oak beams, this is a fantastic space to relax in.

With its lime-washed stone-built cottages, the traditional village of Cartmel is an idyllic base for exploring the Lake District. The village is home to a medieval priory and some friendly pubs, and is just to the south of Windermere (6.5 miles) and Coniston Water (15 miles). Cartmel Peninsula juts into Morecambe Bay, and there are numerous spectacular walks, with destinations including Eggerslack Wood, Hampsfell and Grange-over-Sands (all within 3 miles). Further north are Fell Foot (7 miles) and Grizedale Forest (16 miles).

We loved this cottage and its quirky layout . Worked particularly well for our young adult children to bring a friend each and have their own space- they loved the chill out room upstairs.

Really lovely styled and quirky cottage. Its the perfect location, with the sticky toffee pudding shop only paces away! Sadly no garden, but with so much around this wasnt a problem. Plenty of bathrooms and really spacious bedrooms. Would highly recommend!

Cottage was well placed for all the amenities in Cartmel including the pubs/restaurants and the horse racing track. Town busy but not overly so which in the Lakes is good. Some good low hills not too far away is a good plus as well. Cottage is quirky if you like but just be careful of all the stairs and steps inside which could be a trip hazard to Read moreanyone slightly shaky on their feet. Hide

This is a cosy cottage right in the centre of Cartmel village. Great location for walking and mountain biking. The only negative is the restriction on parking. The parking permits were no longer valid after 7 Oct 2019 and we had to pay for the parking.

We're older, looking for peace and quiet so it was ideal for us. There are 3 lovely bedrooms but one is up narrow stairs on the top floor so those guests have to be agile.

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.
