This stunning cottage lies in the picturesque village of Cartmel at the foot of the Lake District. Sleeping four guests across two stylish bedrooms, it's an excellent choice for couples or smaller families looking to explore Lake Windermere and Cumbria's picturesque coastline. But with Cartmel offering a wonderful array of independent shops and restaurants, plus a 12th-century priory to explore, you may never have to leave.

The property's rustic stone exterior gives way to a sleek design, reflecting Cartmel's unique blend of classic and contemporary charm. Step into the generous open-plan kitchen and living area and discover a space perfect for socialising. Gather around the breakfast bar or curl up by the electric fireplace as you plan your next ramble. The free-standing bath is always on hand to ease weary feet. Both bedrooms meanwhile make for a wonderful night's sleep. The king-size master boasts Parisian styling, while the second double offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. But the vista is best enjoyed on the fabulous patio; with outdoor furniture and a BBQ, there's nowhere better to enjoy a meal together.

Once famous as the birthplace of sticky toffee, Cartmel has given birth to a phenomenal food scene. A wealth of artisans and delis will whet the appetite for dinner at one of Cartmel's two renowned restaurants. A circular stroll, taking in the village's famous racecourse plus the peaceful surroundings of Hampsfell and Eggerslack Wood, should make room for pudding. England's largest lake, Windermere, is only 7 miles away and can be enjoyed from the comfort of one of the numerous cruises that sail past Bowness and Sawrey and into the heart of the central fells. Or why not set off on foot and discover one of the Lake District's most iconic spots up close?

My husband and I spent two nights in the cottage, we are regular visitors to Cartmel. The Cottage is very tastefully furnished in a good location a couple of minutes from the main square in Cartmel. We eat in Rogans (which is a favourite of ours ) and the Cavendish and had fab meals and lovely walks :) a great weekend.

A lovely clean, warm cottage. Very well equipped and furnished. Great location in Cartmel. Only downside is traffic noise in the front bedroom. Not so bad with the window closed.

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.
