Overview

3 Church View is the perfect romantic retreat for two, a combination of stylish decor, easy living and comfort, along with all the amenities of a perfect Lakeland village. Set in the beautiful and popular village of Cartmel, the cottage lies a few minutes' walk from the village centre where you will find a clutch of excellent inns, cafes and restaurants including the Good Food Guide No1 Restaurant 2015 and two Michelin star awarded L'Enclume, along with a fine selection of shops.

The Living Spaces

Duck through the little front door, and you step into a cosy, elegant sitting room and dining space. The sense of comfort is immediate, where soft tones and quality fabrics give a welcoming atmosphere. A plump comfortable sofa and large armchair to relax around the log burning stove at the end of a day exploring, and to the far end is a leather-bound table for dining. A widescreen TV along with well-chosen decor, all combine to make the perfect space in which to curl up and relax with maybe the latest bestseller or movie blockbuster.

From the sitting room you go through to the kitchen. As the pictures show this is a very well designed, equipped and pleasing space, ideal to rustle up a light lunch or your favourite supper.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Stairs lead up to the first floor and the double bedroom and bathroom. Though small, the bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed along with delightful decor. The bathroom is of a period style with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

Garden Spaces

Outside, from the kitchen, you have a little walled garden patio area and garden room. As the sun comes over in the afternoon and into the evening it is a delightful space to enjoy a drink or dine alfresco.

For me this little cottage has it all, and I am sure that all who stay will leave with lasting memories of both the Lake District, the village and this super little retreat.

Out & About

Possibly the most picture-perfect village in the Lake District, Cartmel has grown into a chic little place, wrapped up in the most delightful architecture of traditional lime washed and stone built houses, shops and pubs.

Centred on the village square, overlooked by the huge Normal priory, the village is a maze of little lanes and bridges crossing a sweet little river, cruised by fleets of ducks and swans.

For those who like to step out to wine and dine, the village has much to offer. Home of the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding, it has moved up the gastronomic scale to become a place of pilgrimage for foodies and celebrities. A clutch of cafes compliment the four excellent pubs, with the cherry on the top of the Cartmel Cake, or should I say Pudding, being Simon Rogan's two establishments, Rogan & Company, an easy-going bistro and the famed two Michelin star awarded L'Enclume, voted the 2015 Good Food Guide's No1 UK restaurant.

There are plenty of easy walks from the village. A favourite is to climb high up onto Hampsfell with its panoramic views across the Morecambe Bay, then descend down to Grange Over Sands or explore the tracks running through Eggerslack Woods.

A great day out is to take a Segway off road tour. The offices are by the car park and the reviews so far from our guests make this a must for a bit of fun.

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

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

Great central location only a short walk into the village and we were able to park outside the property using the permit provided. The cottage itself is cosy but there were a few niggles. The TV:DVD is outdated meaning we had to purchase our own DVD player whilst there.

A lovely cottage in an excellent location. Lounge, kitchen & bathroom had plenty of room for a 2, plus a big Labrador. Contrary to the previous review, the memory foam mattress wasn't to our liking.

A great location in a lovely village next to the Priory. A good choice of different places to eat and drink plus a variety of interesting shops.

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.
