Wheelhouse Cottage Guest Reviews


This is a lovely cottage with some querky features.  The cottage is very comfortable.

A lovely, comfortable, well equipped cottage. Enjoyed visiting the Priory and the village. Lovely meal at Rogan & Co. Yew Tree Barn is worth a visit and walk to the Hospice up Hampsfell.

Lovely stay to celebrate my birthday. Cosy and spotlessly clean cottage. Lots of attention to detail and very thoughtful welcome pack. Thank you!

Had the most amazing stay. The cottage was perfect base to explore the Lakes, and such a cosy cottage to head back to in the evenings, the hot tub was a winner for us! We will definitely be back and have already recommended this place to friends and family – thank you!

Excellent house – private garden, with our own ducks! Have been to many cottages in Cartmel, this has to be one of the best!

Lovely place! Very comfortable, beautiful location, perfect! Masons Arms is good for food. 

We came here on our honeymoon.  We had such a lovely and relaxing time in this charming cottage. Location perfect, couldn’t ask for more. Cottage is the best we have ever stayed in by far.

We have been coming to the Lakes for over 20 years and this is by far the loveliest cottage we have stayed in.  Great fire and everything we needed – including ducks and wild life!  Beds and sofas very comfortable and Cartmel lovely quaint little village with great pubs.

We would like to say a BIG thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage, situated in the perfect idyllic spot! Everyone in the village has made us feel very welcome.

Thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon at the Wheelhouse Cottage.  It’s already Thursday evening and we’d really like to stay for another week!  Fantastic house and very Christmassy – we’ll be back!

Had a wonderful week in a fabulous cottage, loved its location, comfort and amenities - you've thought of everything!  Definitely coming back, enyoyed it so much.
Rob, Jo, Ryan & Jack - Cheshire

Cartmel is probably the nicest and most peaceful village around.  The cottage is perfect! Very comfortable and really made our holiday..... thank you to the Baxters for a lovely cottage with so much attention to detail and quality throughout.  We would love to return to the Lake District, but only to Wheelhouse Cottage!!!.
Pauline & Colin - Edinburgh

Many thanks to Mark & Diane for the love and attention they have spent on Wheelhouse... will return.
Roger - Chesham

What a little gem, you really couldn't ask for anything more!  We came to Wheelhouse cottage for a little relaxation and oh boy are we all going home relaxed!  Beautiful village!  Beautiful cottage!
Paul, Nikki, Harry & Pauline - Wirral

Simply fabulous!  A lovely, warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage and really well placed to explore the Lake District.
Pete & Sue - Kenilworth 

Wonderful, idyllic cottage in a super location.  Owners have thought of everything - expect 2 very tame ducks tapping at the back door.
Paul & Sarah - London

We feel incredibly lucky to have stayed here for the past week.  Idyllic situation, peaceful, friendly ducks, moor hens and the odd flash of blue as a kingfisher flits up and down the river.  The house is so well equiped and tasteful.
Gabrielle & Steve - Sale

This was our second visit. Our first was great and our second was just as good. It feels like home from home. Can't wait till our next visit.
John, Linda, Pauline & Gilbert

Oh what a joy to have a quality bed - so many cottage owners neglect this basic element of comfort.
Mel & Christine - Marlow

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing week here in Cartmel. The cottage was soooooo comfortable and well-equiped but for me the highlight was the beautiful birdsong!
