Tantalise your taste buds with a culinary adventure, setting your sights on the quaint village of Cartmel for an unforgettable staycation. Boasting Michelin-star restaurants, tempting tearooms and independent food shops, the village is the ultimate destination for keen foodies. This gorgeous property is studded within the village square, a lavish setting that sleeps six guests across three bedrooms, and is handily equipped with a BBQ and a chimenea for cosy nights admiring the stars.

Beamed ceilings, muted decor and impressive furniture set the scene throughout, creating a soothing ambience for relaxing on chilly winter evenings. Pop open the bubbly and hunker down on the sumptuous sofas for a family film night with bowls of buttery popcorn and a few well-versed games for entertainment. A contemporary yet classic kitchen space will delight any aspiring celebrity chef, and the beautiful dining area will make any meal an extravagant affair. Impossibly soft linen and rustic yet chic styling is the overall theme of the bedrooms, one of which is located on the second floor within the eaves of the house – beware of reduced head height! An exquisite bathroom on the second floor features a decadent free-standing bath on a raised platform, and both the first and second floors have a sleek shower room. Outside, the pretty walled garden is perfectly suited to evening drinks and al fresco dining. Parking is on-road subject to availability or within the nearby pay-and-display car park.

Venture across the sweeping fells to take in the views, or take advantage of the golf and leisure facilities available nearby. Grange-over-Sands, 2.5 miles away, is a charming Victorian town with an array of independent shops, ornamental gardens and a promenade along the estuary and you can also hire bikes from nearby Witherslack, 7.5 miles away, to explore the surrounding countryside.

This is a lovely property with lovely decor and some really nice touches and quality furnishings that make the cottage so welcoming. It is located extremely well in the centre of Cartmel. Although parking is an issue we were prepared for this and it didnt affect our stay.

Lovely property in a very quaint village. The property is furnished to a very high spec , our only thought was that another comfortable chair in the lounge area would be good as there is only really comfortable seating for 5 adults.

Perfect location, lovely outsize space. But no parking permit which was very awkward for 3 couples not to mention expensive. The need to renew the ticket every morning was quite inconvenient and I know most properties in Cartmel provide a parking pass. For this reason only I would not recommend this property,

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.
