Tucked away from the tourist hotspots and set within the peaceful Cumbrian village of Cark-in-Cartmel, this cosy cottage sleeps four and is the perfect base for keen adventurers and foodies alike. Explore the sweeping countryside surrounding the village and tuck into hearty pub lunches, or venture into the gastronomic centre of Cartmel to experience fine dining in one of the superb restaurants. On your return, pop a log on the fire and snuggle down with a glass of wine, watching a film with your loved ones by your side.

Inside, the property carries the vibe of a traditional cottage albeit with a pleasing contemporary twist, featuring bold splashes of colour, exposed beams and a beautiful stone floor in the lounge/diner. Elegant furniture provides comfortable spots to sink into after a busy day, whether you are drawn to the sumptuous sofas in the lounge area, or prefer to gather at the table for board games. A marvellous kitchen provides all the gadgets and workspace needed to cook up a storm, which can be enjoyed outside in the impressive enclosed courtyard. Consisting of sunny patio space, elevated decked balcony and a summerhouse, the outside space is a treat for stargazing. Upstairs, two charming bedrooms and an impressive bathroom complete the property.

Set off on bracing walks to Grange-over-Sands, 3.5 miles away, to sample artisan produce and bask in the views and timeless charm of the Victorian promenade. There are ornamental gardens and an array of independent shops to peruse, as well as access to a number of exhilarating cycle trails. Hop on a train and discover somewhere completely new, alighting at the pretty fishing port of Arnside, or venturing as far as Lancaster to soak up the culture and history.

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

Lovely, well appointed holiday cottage, spotlessly clean. Lovely walk to Cartmel, about 40 minutes away. Nothing in Cark itself really. Good base explore the Lakes. A bit expensive in peak season for its location in place like Cark though. The website advertises this as Cartmel, its not.

A beautifully furnished and equipped cottage in an excellent location. Excellent dog walks from the door to Cartmel (home of sticky toffee pudding, so a visit to the shop is a must!). Great places to eat and drink reasonably locally. The house is so cosy and they have thought of everything you're likely to need while on holiday, even supplying a loRead morevely welcome gift for both two and four legged holidaymakers.

Stayed for a week in July. The house is very clean, great location, pub, shop, bakery all within walking distance. Its a lovely walk into Cartmel.

Fabulous cottage in a small quiet cul de sac, handily placed for the facilities in the village. The cottage is beautifully and comfortably styled and was spotlessly clean.

Situated in a village, the cottage is cosy and warm. Many attractions are very close to the property. You can walk to Holker Hall from the cottage. There you can stroll through the estate, in amongst the deer, enjoying the colours of autumn. Grange-over-Sands, lake Windermere boat trips, steam journey rides, routes to walk, and many ,many more thinRead moregs to do and see. All of these amongst beautiful scenery. Beautiful . Hide

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.
