Overview

Barn Garth Cottage lies in a quite lane, a few minutes' walk from both Cartmel’s village square and the racecourse. Owners Shareen and Richard have refurbished the property to offer their guests a comfortable and stylish holiday home, perfect for both family holidays and as romantic retreat for couples.

Cartmel is one of our most popular and sought-after villages. A little medieval gem, lying only seven miles from the southern reach of Lake Windermere and is a firm favourite of foodies and celebrities alike. A huddle of lime washed cottages and shops, the village revolves around a delightful square, overlooked by a huge, impressive Norman Priory and, on its edge, is the smallest National Hunt racecourse in the country. For wining and dining there are four excellent pubs, along with Cartmel’s latest claim to fame, Simon Rogan's L'Enclume, voted the number one venue by the Good Food Guide and the prestigious award of two Michelin stars for exceptional cuisine

The Living Spaces

From the entrance you step into the well-equipped kitchen. At its heart is the super Rangemaster cooker with 5 gas burners and 2 ovens, perfect for preparing your signature dishes. To compliment this there are a few nice extras including a wine cooler unit and a Morphy Richards coffee machine.

Via the central hall, which has been furnished as a small snug, you come to the large sitting room. Comfortably furnished with a contemporary L shaped sofa, along with an arm chair and couple of occasional chairs it is the perfect space to relax and gather together, or simply curl up with a book or take in a movie on the Smart TV. To one side is the cosy dining room area and, at the far end of the room French doors open out to a small walled and paved garden, ideal for alfresco dinning and barbecuing.

Bedrooms And Bathrooms

From the central hall, stairs wind up to the first-floor landing. Here are two of the three bedrooms. The master double is a spacious room with a King size bed and TV along with a super en-suite shower room. The twin bedroom is as snug as a bug, with revealed stone walls, delightful furnishings and two comfortable beds.

The house shower room is sleek and crisp, with a black and chrome shower cubicle offering a rainforest shower head along with body jets to sooth-tired muscles after a day exploring the fells.

From the first floor a further stairway leads up and opens into the attic bedroom, a cosy space with its pitched roof, exposed beams and revealed stone walls.

Garden Spaces

From the sitting room French doors open out to a delightful walled and flagged patio garden. A perfect sun trap you can relax, enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif or dine alfresco on warm summer evenings – perfect.

Out & About

Possibly the most picture-perfect places in the Lake District, Cartmel has grown into a chic little village, wrapped up in the most delightful architecture of traditional lime washed and stone-built houses, shops and pubs.

Centred on the village square, overlooked by the huge Normal priory, the village is a maze of little lanes and bridges crossing a sweet little river, cruised by fleets of ducks and swans.

For those who like to step out and wine and dine the village has much to offer. Home of the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding, it has moved up the gastronomic scale to become a place of pilgrimage for foodies and celebrities. A clutch of cafes compliments the four excellent pubs, with cherry on the Cartmel Cake, or should I say Pudding, being Simon Rogan's two establishments, Rogan & Company, an easy-going bistro and the famed two Michelin star awarded L'Enclume, voted the 2015 Good Food Guide's No1 UK restaurant.

There are plenty of easy walks from the village. A favourite is to climb high up onto Hampsfell with its panoramic views across the Morecambe Bay, then descend to Grange Over Sands or explore the tracks running through Eggerslack Woods.

A great day out is to take a Segway off road tour. The offices are by the car park and the reviews so far from our guest make this a must for a bit of fun.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

5 stars - excellent! Barn Garth Cottage is a beautifully presented cottage which has all the home comforts you could ask for. Every room has been tastefully and thoughtfully decorated to a high standard, with very comfortable beds and furnishings. It was also great for our dog, with a comfy basket, towels and treats provided and an outside hose aftRead moreer muddy walks! This was our first visit to Cartmel and the Barn Garth Cottage was perfectly situated in the centre of the village on a quiet lane. We were able to drop our luggage off outside the cottage, but had to find parking in the lanes around the village. This could be busy at certain times, but we were always able to park. In the evenings, we were spoilt for choice with four dog friendly pubs to choose from and we found the village a welcoming place to be. Its also perfectly located for exploring the Lakeland peninsulas and into the Lake District itself. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
