The enchanting wilderness of the Lake District is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway with the one you love, and this cosy cottage at the heart of a Cumbrian village is the ideal base for your adventures. Located in the sleepy village of Lindale, you’ll be well placed to enjoy scenic walks across Cartmel Fell and along the estuary of Grange-over-Sands. Return from your explorations and light the wood burner, snuggling up with a glass of wine in hand and a good film on the TV.

Beneath the rose-clad exterior is a charming haven characterised by traditional beams, classic furniture and soothing details, accessed via a set of stone steps. Inside, the open-plan living space is warmed throughout by a roaring wood burner, which creates a peaceful setting for relaxing. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and feast by candlelight, rounding off with a nightcap on the sofas. Climb the open-tread stairs to the first floor to find the gorgeous double bedroom, dressing room, and contemporary shower room. There is a small front garden with bench seating for stargazing, and space to park one car.

Prepare your taste buds for a culinary adventure, selecting the finest produce from Cartmel’s famous cheese shop, 4.5 miles away, or savouring the artisan bakes at the popular bakery at Grange-over-Sands, 2.5 miles away. There are plenty of restaurants to tempt aspiring foodies, especially around the local area surrounding Cartmel, best enjoyed after a bracing walk to stimulate the senses. Lace up your boots and marvel at the breathtaking scenery as you scale the imposing Whitbarrow Scar, 4.5 miles away, looking down over the quaint village of Witherslack before perhaps venturing down to the friendly pub for some warming ale.

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

It was a lovely, pretty cottage. Set in a lovely village located conveniently for the Lakes. Unfortunately, it seems the owner/housekeeper doesnt read reviews from previous guests as there was many things not rectified or picked up. Stairs arent very dog friendly and exceptionally slippy. Im young and mobile but this could be a problem for the lessRead more mobile. Heating and hot water should be adjusted by the individuals staying there. Driveway at the back of the property was excellent. Hide

Nice cottage, although you REALLY need a car - getting around without one was quite difficult. The itinerary we formed on the first night using the folder provided by the host was useless given that the folder is extremely outdated and most places we attempted to go to were shut down/abandoned. There isnt multiple pubs in Lindale as the descriptionRead more says, one of them shut down over 5 years ago. Overall nice cottage but need to do your research before going, and take a car. Hide

Lovely, cosy holiday cottage. We made good use of the wood burner, and the sofa was super squishy! The L'Occitane toiletries were also a nice touch. The food at the local pub in Lindale was really good, and the village of Cartmel is a great spot for tea rooms and restaurants - just a short drive away. We had a very relaxing break - thank you.

What a lovely cosy romantic cottage, especially when you get the log burner on! Lovely little touch with the goodie bag, robes and LOccitane toiletries. We had no complaints but some of the comments in the guest book cited having no back garden and no gate on the front if youve got a dog as issues. Would recommend.

The cottage itself is in a good area but let down dramatically by the cleanliness noted above. We are in our late 60s / early 70s and select 5 star properties to ensure we can relax when we arrive, we should not have to go and by cleaning materials and clean ourselves to bring the property to the standard you advertise . Very dissapointed

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.
