Clogger Beck Cottage is located in the popular village of Cartmel, a two-minute walk from the square, with its shops, pubs and restaurants.

The country bolthole of owners John & Denise, who both fell in love with Cartmel and all the village has to offer, their super cottage will make the perfect retreat for both couples and small families, where it offers comfortable accommodation with the added bonus of a very beautiful garden to enjoy and relax in.

A traditional Lake District stone-built cottage, it derives its name from the little Clogger Beck that runs alongside the property, where you will see ducks cruising, an occasional brown trout, along with water voles and other river residents.

The village is 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.

All in a perfect cottage, perfect village along with the whole of the National Park within easy reach.

Living Spaces

Having parked up in the private parking space you cross over the little front garden and enter into the hall.

To one side is the sitting room. Spacious, it has a comfortable sofa and two armchairs drawn around a roaring, log-burning stove, which come winter will add a cosy ambience to the room. Oak beams, soft lighting and a garden view all combine to make a delightful place to come together, or simply kick back and relax with a movie on the wide screen TV.

Across the hall is a small dining room leading into the kitchen. Well-equipped to rustle up your signature dishes, it offers all mod cons for easy living. A small scullery leads to a downstairs WC and also opens out to the wonderful garden.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

A fine stairway winds up to the first floor. Here you have two bedrooms and the house bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

The master double has a plump king-sized bed, a spacious en-suite shower room and views out to the garden. The twin bedroom lies to the front of the house, comfortable and well-furnished it looks out over a meadow and the nearby heights of Hampsfell.

Garden Spaces

The garden makes this delightful cottage even more special. Divided into ‘outdoor rooms’ there are paved, terraced areas along with a grassy lawn.

The sun hits the garden pretty much all day, where in summer months our northern days are long where come evening you can barbecue and dine in a magical twilight and as the sun finally dips, see a star filled sky with a magnificent view of the Milky Way - Perfect.

Out & About

The Cartmel Peninsular juts out into the Morecambe Bay, a spike of land made up of gently rolling hills, woodland and meadow, that tumbles into the bay and is criss-crossed with country lanes that are perfect for cycling.

From the cottage there are easy walks through the Holker Estate lands and, for a gentle challenge, you can go up onto Hampsfell, a mighty limestone bluff, where at the summit you are rewarded with the most magnificent panoramic views of the bay and the Cumbrian Mountains.

As a diversion you might try the Cartmel Segway. A guided tour through woodland and meadows it has proved a great hit with our guests. The office is located in the village car park, just off the main square.

For those that like an ancient grand pile, there are three of the best on the peninsular. Holker Hall is the closest with wonderful grounds and host a number of seasonal events including the Holker Garden Show, a festival of all things floral.

Sizergh Castle is a beautiful medieval house with wonderful gardens and estate grounds. Maintained by The National Trust there is plenty to do and see, along with a café, pub and farm shop.

Finally, there is Levens Hall, a fine example of the grand country house. The house well worth a visit as are the topiary gardens, a huge collection of the weird and the wonderful, sculptured from box and yew.

Just over the fell lies Grange Over Sands, famed for its mile-long promenade, it has a great collection of shops that will serve all your needs.

Further afield Lake Windermere lies seven miles to the north where you can board a steamer for a lake cruise, or at Fell Foot Park enjoy the National Trust grounds, laze by the lake shore or hire a row or sail boat for a spot of nautical fun.

Beyond, in easy reach, is the whole of the National Park; Coniston and its lake, the Grizedale Forest and above this the central massive of the Cumbrian Mountains.

So, with much to do and explore during the daytime, with the added joy of a cosy home to return to and a village offering some of the best dining in the country makes this a perfect venue for your Lake District holiday.

The cottage is in a fantastic location, we loved the park next to the cottage and there are good quality pubs/shops within easy walking distance. Cartmel is lovely! The views from the cottage are beautiful! Due to the weather we hardly used the garden but we enjoyed sitting out when the rain stopped. The cottage itself is very well equipped with irRead moreon, cooking equipment, lots of blankets and towels etc. We loved the decor and felt cosy and peaceful during the evenings. We would definitely return! Hide

Clogger Beck, is situated just outside the main part of Cartmel, and with the added attraction of 2 private car parking spaces. These are a rare commodity in Cartmel, and very attractive for any renter. There is a homely feel to this property, and a further plus point is the rear garden.

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.
