Barn Garth Cottage Access Statement

Barn Garth Cottage – Access Statement




A stylish and cosy cottage right in the heart of the popular village of Cartmel, 2 minutes away from the famous and significant 12th century Augustinian Priory, with which the cottage has a special relationship. This is as a result of a small piece of monastic masonry embedded in the wall, which was gathered from the Priory grounds at some time in its history, thereby giving the Cottage its grade 2 listing. Having started its life as a shelter for farm animals, for the house next door, the building was extended upwards and more recently outwards, to create the comfortable 3 bedroom cottage that welcomes you today.


A spacious sitting room, dining area and sunroom are located downstairs, along with the kitchen, a study/reading room area (including storage for coats & boots and stairs to upper floors), downstairs toilet and utility room. The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, a twin room and the shared bathroom are on the first floor, with a charming attic bedroom on the second floor.
