Studded amongst the cobbled streets of Cartmel, this charming abode is the perfect choice for six guests seeking an extra-special staycation on the cusp of the Lake District National Park. Discover a spectacular wilderness of endless countryside dotted with glacial lakes, imposing mountains and chocolate-box villages, challenging your inner adventurer or indulging your inner foodie to an experience like no other.

Boasting a quirky layout, this lovingly converted property is a refreshing combination of contemporary decor and traditional details. A ground-floor snug welcomes weary guests after a day of adventures, inviting you to leave your muddy coats and shoes in the utility room before venturing upstairs to the lavish bedrooms and comfortable lounge. Open the wine and settle down by the fire to watch TV before stepping down into the kitchen to prepare a feast, savouring quality family meals in the neighbouring dining room. At bedtime, refresh yourself in the ground-floor shower room or indulge in the built-in Jacuzzi in the upstairs bathroom, retiring to one of three inviting bedrooms for a wonderful night’s sleep. Outside, a peaceful patio area is a great spot for a BBQ with a view, and there is permit parking for one car.

Treat your taste buds and choose a holiday that’s centred around the gastronomic experience, whether you are sampling delights from Cartmel’s iconic cheese shop, dining in one of two Michelin-star restaurants, or visiting one of the inviting eateries. Cartmel is also a wonderful destination for walkers keen to discover the sweeping fells, or soak up some local culture at the 14th-century priory. Further afield, the estuary town of Grange-over-Sands, 2.5 miles away, still carries a great deal of its original contemporary charm thanks to the promenade, ornamental gardens and pretty shops.

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

If you are looking for a quiet accommodation avoid at all costs. Near to a busy main road which even at night is busy and car lights illuminate bedrooms. Neighbour on the left side noisy especially late at night as they arrive back from work at unsociable hours.

The cottage was well presented and well kitted out. Good heating and hot water and comfy beds. It was great having such a good TV with so many channels as we stayed in May before all eating out restrictions were lifted so it was tricky to go out to eat. We would recommend pizza and beer at Unsworth's and the Cavendish Arms was also good. It was an Read moreideal base to walk in the South Lakes and explore the surrounding area. Hide

Stylish property but the very poor maintenance/cleaning regime turned the holiday into a nightmare. Garden is overgrown, some ceiling paintwork is peeling each night onto ones clothes, many more instances of poor cleaning. What a lovely and what great potential this property has but it is spoiled by the cleanliness, especially important at this timRead moree of Covid. We did not feel safe. Beware! Hide

Cartmel is a fantastic village to have as a base and the cottage is in easy walking distance to nice pubs. The Hayloft space worked well for our family holiday for three adults and two kids.

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.
