Easy Access For Cartmel Races



This delightful turn of the century, 1900's cottage, has been completely re-designed and refurbished throughout to offer guests a perfect combination of stylish decor, easy living, great comfort, along with all the amenities of a perfect Lakeland village, where the quality of the property has been recognised by Visit England’s 5 Star award.

Set in the beautiful and popular village of Cartmel, about six miles south of Lake Windermere, Brookside lies a few minutes walk from the village centre where you will find a clutch of excellent inns, cafes and restaurants including the two Michelin star awarded L'Enclume, along with a fine selection of shops.

For me this cottage will be perfect for couples, where I am sure you will enjoy the property as much as the village and the wider Lake District National Park.


Living Spaces

Brookside sits in the middle of the terrace of houses, to the right of the picture. Having arrived you should find easy parking on the lane. From the small front garden you step into the hall with smoky grey stone flags and a fine oak staircase.

The sitting room is relaxing and comfortable, with the use of soft colours and warm fabrics. Quality plump sofas sit on an oak floor where, along with great art and a huge wide screen TV with Sky Q, the focus is on a log burning stove giving both extra warmth and atmosphere in winter months, and just perfect to tuck up and relax with a movie or a good read after your day out in the lakes.

The kitchen - dining space lies off the hall at the rear of the cottage, with the stone flag flooring continuing through giving continuity of design. For me the quality and care shows in abundance. The kitchen area has excellent units housing quality appliances, which are topped off with a swish, pale cream Silestone work surface.

To the dining end there is a fine table set in front of a huge, ultra modern log burning stove, where the chimney breast is flanked by fitted cupboards and two armchairs – so no excuse not to keep the chef company. The colourways of pale cream and graphite grey, along with the stone flags all combine to set the room off beautifully, making it a pleasing space to prepare your favourite recipes and spend long relaxing dinners around the table.


Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs you have the two bedrooms, both stylish, both comfortable. You can choose between the King sized double with TV and its views over the village green, or the twin again with TV at the rear of the cottage.

The shower room is bright and crisp, with a good sized walk in shower, basin and WC.  With complimentray Bath Store toiletry products for your enjoyment.


Garden Spaces

French doors open out to the small courtyard, patio garden where you can spill out in summer months. Walled on both boundaries, there is a little whitewashed stone out-building housing the laundry facilities, also where you can store wood, bikes, bits and bobs. With comfy outdoor furniture you can relax with a drink or dine alfresco. The combination of kitchen opening out onto this little walled garden is just perfect for summer. 


Out & About

Cartmel is one of Cumbria's finest and unique villages. Set on the Cartmel Peninsular and surrounded by rolling hills that tumble down to the coast it is picture perfect, with ancient buildings, an impressive medieval priory, a towering arch and a little river along with the smallest National Hunt race course.  A lively village, it is centered on a sunny square to gather and sit, or wine and dine in one of the many cosy inns or fine restaurants, noteably the top venue, Simon Rogan's L'Enclume.

There are good local walks, notable is Hampsfell and Eggerslack Wood, a limestone fell and ancient woodland where the summit gives panoramic views of the Morecambe Bay and the Lake District Mountains, and where in spring the woodland is carpeted in bluebells.

Your Say

We have had a great stay in Cartmel, it's a lovely village with some fantastic restaurants, pubs and shops. L'Enclume is a must for the 20 course tasting menu. Rogan & Co is also worth a visit, the food is fantastic. The Royal Oak beer garden is lovely but our favourite pub by far is the Pig & Whistle across the road. The bar nibbles are worth a try. All the pubs are dog friendly which is great. Brookside is a lovely house, we felt very relaxed here and we also got the chance to use the fantastic garden and patio. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We had a fantastic stay at Brookside. The cottage is so cozy, a real home from home. We loved snuggling under the blankets watching the fire.
The surrounding pubs are fantastic and very doggy friendly, we especially enjoyed a birthday meal at L'Enclume.We will definitely be back.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Your house is beautiful and we have just had the most amazing family time together, filled with lots of fun and long days exploring the surroundings
