Ducks Haven Guest Reviews

Its been a fantastic week in Cartmel. Great location and walks from the cottage. Recommend if walking into village, go pass the hotel on the road, 100yrd opposite the cottage is a footpath across the fields to a quieter road leading into Cartmel pass the racecourse. Kings Arms in the village is good for food, Blacksmiths Arms in Broughton Mills is superb but a bit of a drive. Will be back.

We had a lovely time at Ducks Haven. The cottage and location were beautiful and we even got some good weather!

We really enjoyed our time in Ducks Haven. We are planning to return in early Spring. It was excellently kitted out and very comfortable. 
Andy - October 2017

A peaceful and relaxing weekend as a post – graduation break. Accommodation was excellent and well equipped. Recommended!
Kate, Jonathan, Colin & Neil – July 2017

A truly glorious stay in a fabulous setting. Cartmel is a lovely place and is very welcoming for dogs. Keep an eye on the gates at the front of the garden or else you may find your puppies on a duck hunt!
Lesley, Rebecca, Mike & Archie – July 2017

We had a great time! We will come again with our new puppy! P.S the under floor heating was nice!
Olivia, Steve, Joe & Lucy

Thank you we had a good stay. All in all the property was good, nice and clean and appropriately well furnished and met our needs. The children's books and toys were a welcome surprise and were much appreciated by our 6 and 2.5 year old.

Dear John and Clare,
Many thanks for getting in touch regarding feedback on our stay. We did thoroughly enjoy our stay and thought that the apartment overall was super: clean, well presented, well furnished and well equipped. We met the owners who were charming and happy to talk and clearly have invested a lot of time (and money) into the property. To be succinct,  we loved the apartment and would happily return.

We truly had a fantastic time here. Our first weekend away with our new puppy. Perkin and he loved it. Cartmel is a lovely place and we recommend the coffee shop for Sticky Toffee Pudding! The apartment here is a home from home and we hope tome come back again. I imagine its even more beautiful in the summer! Many thanks
Kate, Matt & Girls – February 2017

A beautiful and wild area with a orchard for our dog. My favourite is the duck pond ( our dog loves it too) out standing apartment, hope we come again

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, well equipped and comfortable. Lots of great places to visit without going far. Don’t miss Holker Hall and gardens, well worth a visit.

Sad to be leaving this wonderful apartment! We have had a delightful time at Ducks Haven! Very well equipped, cosy and picturesque! Our highlights were the cosy Cavendish pub and the Cartmel café for Sticky Toffee Pudding… the local gin. Be sure to visit the orchard if you are here with a dog – great space!
Julie, Grant & Hugo – September 2016

Thank you for a lovely stay.
The Hutchison family – August 2016

We have had a lovely week here at Ducks Haven. On arrival everything was very clean and tidy and we have been confortable here. The location is superb and was perfect for walking into Cartmel on race day. Blessed with wonderful weather too! We will return with pleasure. 
Reg & Julie – June 2016

A lovely short break with beautiful weather, and a great place to stay. We felt at home very quickly and have enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of Ducks Haven. Many thanks for sharing such a lovely home. 
Jan & Rosie – March 2016

Third visit this year as we just love this place. South Lakes Safari Zoo is an absolute must. On our last night we decided to order a chinese from Grange & lovely Trevor Grills taxi collected it for us. Brougham Hall Castle was lovely & had amazing cheese scones.
Nikki, Jo & Michelle September 2015

Second visit this year! Loved every minute of it. Thank you. So chilled, dogs loved it too!
Fin & Morgan, Balloo & Dino August 2015 

Thank you for a lovely stay. Great local resturants and pubs in Cartmel. Definitely recommend the walking with wolves experience with Predator Experience.
Grant & Jen August 2015

Me and my family have enjoyed our warm and cosy stay. It has been a great experience as we live in a busy and big city. Me and my brother loved the spinning chair and the films too. I suggest going to Fell Foot, there are boat rides and nice views. On the lake ride you can also go on the steam train. 
Miranda, Dom, Ivy & Tich

For our 25th wedding anniversary, my second visit here and I wanted to show my husband how lovely it is. We spent the whole week eating out and can highly recommend the following:
Hare & Hound in Levens. Cavendish Arms in Cartmel. Mad Hatters Tea Room in Ulverston. The Pig & Whistle in Cartmel. Nearly made it to Rogans but had to cancel at the last minute. Thank you as the apartment is like home from home.
Paul & Nikki July 2015

Spent a lovely Mon-Fri break at Ducks Haven. Gorgeous apartment and great facilities. Anyone with dogs make sure you find 'The Orchard' in between lodge 15 & 17 on the park, perfect exercising area for the pooches. The sticky toffee pudding shop is a must see, not only for the pudding but also the vast amount of different chutneys. First time in the southern lakes, but will definitely be back.
Pete, James & Jack June 2015

Most enjoyable stay. Thank you. Excellent pub grub in the Kings Arms. For me the best high point was the steam trian to Lakeside and back!
Jackie, Sue, Stan & Poppin May 2015

Just the break we needed. The apartment is beautiful (our teenage daughter especially loved the 'circular' chair!) Set in a lovely spot for exploring the nearby countryside and gorgeous village of Cartmel. Many Thanks
Helen, Ian, Elemay & Bella April 2015

What a fantastic find Ducks Haven was! Perfect location from which to explore! Perfect also for allowing the dog space to enjoy his home from home. We will definately be returning to this beautiful apartment, following a week in glorious sunshine and fond memories of our engagement by Derwent Water yesterday! Thank you.
Abi, Nick & Hugo April 2015

Fantastic week here in this lovely apartment. Enjoyed every minute of it. Beds are very comfortable! I'll come back soon.
Ellie February 2015

It was a pleasure staying in this beautiful appartment with amazing surrounding countryside. Have booked to come back later in the year.
Pauline January 2015

Came for a relaxing girlie week and both the apartments and the surrounding area hit the spot. Would highly recomment the 'Pig & Whistle' in Cartmel. Amazing food at the pub, prices and very friendly staff. Also make sure you try the cheese shop in Cartmel! And the Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding (yum yum). I'll be Back!
Nickki January 2015

Yet another beautiful cottage and a great stay.
Horrocks family - Cheshire 

We have had a wonderful week here, such a peaceful setting, a complete contrast to where we live. Your home is absolutely beautiful and sumptuously furnished and the kitchen is really well equipped. You have very good taste. We nearly didn't want to go out to explore due to the comfortable sofa!  Thank you for a wonderful week, we would definitely recommend Ducks Haven to our friends and family.
