As a former village "Lock-Up" the property was a place of temporary detention for rogues and miscreants and was awarded listed status in 1970. In the heart of Cartmel, lying between the Lake District National Park and Morecambe Bay Coastline, the village is a "go-to" destination for foodies with Simon Rogan's two 'starred' restaurants a short stroll away. Staying in this property, you can take advantage of the array of good quality restaurants, charming shops and pubs all within easy walking distance. Cartmel is also home to an impressive Norman Priory as well as its own racecourse which holds meetings on certain bank holiday weekends and hosts a range of other events throughout the year. There are some fantastic walks to enjoy close to the village and of course, the picturesque Lake District is a short drive away.

Venture through the front door of this tiny former jail and you will find a small area with tea and coffee making facilities, a welcome hamper and a small fridge. There's also a built-in wardrobe with ample space for coats, clothing and walking boots, as well as additional blankets to wrap up warm on cooler days when enjoying the outside space. You will also find the contemporary wet room on this floor with shower and WC and under floor heating. Heading up the narrow stairs to the first floor you'll discover the sumptuous bedroom with its romantic four poster double bed and Smart TV with Sonos sound bar.

In the courtyard, you will find the patio area where you can rest and enjoy a morning coffee and the night skies in the evening. There is also a shared utility room across the courtyard with washing machine, tumble dryer and ample space to store your bikes securely. There is a parking permit available for one car.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

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.
