Trish & Julie - October 2017


Wow! What a beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. A relaxing break away from city life, Garret House Cottage provided everything needed - a beautiful restoration. Weather was mixed but not even ex-hurricane Ophelia could spoil this trip (although the pots outside the front door fell over and one broke).  Lovely walk into Cartmel on a sunny morning and various drives around the lakes. Not sure I want to leave - already planning a return trip! Thank you Ann for sharing your gorgeous cottage

Richard & Michele – August 2017 


Garret House Cottage is a truly beautiful little gem, lovely and comfortable throughout with a gorgeous view with a nice stroll of about 15mins into the village. Very stylishly furnished, everything you could possibly want was in there down to the fluffy dressing gowns Comfy bed, gorgeous shower room, warm cosy and spotlessly clean, everything looked brand new. I would say hats off to the cleaning lady! I will defo be back next year.
Mrs Platt - August 2017

Garret House Cottage, is a beautiful little Cottage!! 
We had a lovely 4 Night break here, very lucky with weather which was an added bonus. The cottage is of high standard. Everything you need. Bathroom is on par with boutique hotel standard. Courtyard at back is great. Location is perfect for walking in Cartmel Park with our dogs. Great for walking into Cartmel of evening for drinks & eating in 1 of many pubs. Hamper was a great idea & well thought out and really appreciated it. Loved that owner left bird food for feeders. Could sit for long while just watching them feed!
Loved it. Thank you
Richard & Michele Waterton - August 2017

Comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage. Cartmel is lovely. Weather moderate to poor!
Frank & Margaret – July 2017

We had an amazing time at Garret House Cottage.  The cottage is in an excellent position with a pretty view looking down to the race course and village.  It is a small and cosy cottage decorated and furnished to a high standard and we had an amazing welcome basket of goodies which was much appreciated.  We enjoyed the short walk down to the village and had excellent meals in the local dog friendly pubs where we were made to feel welcome everywhere we went. We like to walk and there are plenty of walks around Cartmel whilst Ambleside and Coniston are only about a half hour drive away.
Angela - 28th July 2017

Lovely cottage, great weather! And a great escape from the smoke!
Dave, London – 22nd June 2017

Thank you for our stay in your lovely cosy cottage which has been beautifully renovated. The hamper, including the sticky toffee pudding was very much appreciated. Thanks also for the clear instructions on how to get there. Just to let you know that we didn't bring our dog as he was taken unwell the week before we came. He would have really enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Many thanks again and we look forward to returning very soon.

The cottage was lovely with beautiful surroundings with an added touch of the hamper including sticky toffee pudding. Made friends with the nice lady next door and sat outside on the bench chatting with her all afternoon watching the world go by, a really nice change from day to day hectic lives we lead. Henry, our dog also had a fabulous time curled up in front of the log fire and morning walks, with lots of walks nearby to choose from.
