Providing ample accommodation for six guests, this cosy and inviting holiday cottage is situated in a charming spot in the heart of a Lakeland village. Perfect for families seeking a quiet retreat, this is a fantastic base for exploring the southern part of the Lake District, with the coast of Morecambe Bay within easy reach. Close to a welcoming pub and just half a mile from Cartmel Racecourse, this delightful property is ideal for discovering the lakes and woodland of this spectacular region.

This light, spacious and welcoming holiday cottage features exposed stonework, oak beams and stone flooring, and has been tastefully decorated and furnished in cool, relaxing tones throughout. The property features a charming lounge/diner, an elegantly designed kitchen and a delightful snug so there’s plenty of space for everybody to relax. Stairs wind up to the first floor where there are two comfortable bedrooms – an en-suite king-size master bedroom and a twin room as well as a shower room. Further stairs lead to the attic bedroom, with double bed, exposed beams, exposed stone walls and a pitched roof. Outside, the walled patio garden features a fire pit and makes a great spot for enjoying a glass of wine or a meal in the evening.

As well as a choice of friendly restaurants and pubs, Cartmel has a range of independent boutique shops selling a variety of gifts, books and local specialities including cheeses and Cartmel’s own sticky toffee pudding. The village is also home to a 12th-century priory. Heading north you will reach Windermere (6 miles), Coniston Water (14.5 miles) and Esthwaite Water (12 miles). Local attractions include Eggerslack Woods, Hampsfell, Holker Hall and Gardens, and Humphrey Head Point – a pirate cove jutting into the bay (all within 3.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A good location in a cute village. Photographs make the property look bigger than it is but nicely furnished. Some of the kitchen equipment wasnt great eg blunt knives. No decent supermarket nearby only express stores which were expensive.

The Cottage was perfect and extremely well maintained with a very good welcome pack. The only issue was how to make a strong cup of coffee but a percolator was available to solve that problem and a procedure for waste management, we couldn't find anywhere for recycling.

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.
