What a fabulous cottage! Even better than it looked on the photos. We have loved staying in Cartmel for New Year and The Old Police Station has been the perfect base for comfort and feeling so homely!

Lovely cottage set in such a convenient location. I love Cartmel and everything is so close to us! There are some excellent things to do here in the Lake District. I love my room, I get the bunk bed all to myself and I love it so much!

We visit Cartmel every year for the races. This is our first stay at the Old Police Station. For a family of Grandparents, parents and a 14 month old, the accommodation worked really well. The kitchen was well equipped, the dining room good for family meals and the bedroom configuration excellent.
Overall the house equipped to a high standard and we really enjoyed our stay.

Merry Christmas ! We are currently staying in the The Old Police Station over Christmas. We are so impressed with the cottage and the fact that the owners John & Lesley have gone to so much trouble to ensure our stay here was perfect. We believe they had a leak a few days prior to our arrival, but it hasn't affected us at all due to Lakeland Cottage Company's services & John & Lesley addressing the problem, so a huge Thank You.  Another wonderful thoughtful touch was providing a gorgeous Xmas tree and stockings with gifts for our children ....amazing !! The cottage certainly has the WOW factor and we are blown away, furniture, appliances etc. are second to none. You have made our Xmas very very special indeed. So much so we would love to return next Xmas and possible New Year, Could you please email me the price for the same week next Xmas, and possible New Year. Would Lesley & John give provide a discount if we rented the 2 weeks Xmas & new year?? On behalf of my husband and I, my parents and our two children, please could you pass on a message to John & Lesley how wonderful they have made our Christmas. Thank you to yourselves Lakeland Cottage Company for your wonderful service. Kind regards & we wish you a happy new year !

Wonderful week at the beautiful cottage! It was the first time we stayed at a cottage (as we have a 4 month old baby) and absolutely loved it! It's like being at home with all modern conveniences, but it still feels like you are on holidays, we will definitely do it again. We hope everyone who stays at this cottage enjoys it as much as we did. Thank you!

Howells/ Nicol family - Aug 2011
Love the cottage, love Cartmel, wish we'd found it before the children (4yrs + 11 months) had arrived- only parents will understand ! 
Our 4 yr old said it was better than our house, think it was the bunkbed/playroom that sealed the deal for him. Loved everything about the Old Police Station - will be back soon.
The Ridings - Sunderland - July 2011 
A lovely place to stay and tour the lakes from. We had great weather and a good family week. Very nicely decorated house and all the home comforts! Loved the sticky toffee pudding!

The Williamson family stayed here and had a fabulous time. What a suberb location, beautiful walks, fine pubs (the Kings Arms in Cartmel square).... the food was scrumptious, the pub also served an array of local ales which went down well! The Old Police Station was a lovely place to stay, we will come back again soon!! We loved it here!! Many thanks.

Hello. I just wanted to say thank you for helping us have a brilliant weekend at The Old Police Station. The cottage was wonderful, we all loved Cartmel and we hope to make it an annual event! Your site is great, and I’ve recommended it to a lot of people – you’ve got wonderful properties on and I hope to stay in a few more of them. Best
