    • “Me and my husband stayed for a long weekend in October with our 2 dogs. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. The log burner was a nice addition and we found the cleanliness of the cottage very good. Nice hot shower and comfy beds just what you need after a long walk. The local area was excellent for walking and the local pubs are great too.”

I would recommend this cottage to anyone”

It had everything required for a pleasant stay; the lovely kitchen had everything that you would want and the wonderful shower was just what's needed after a days walking. There are two dog friendly pubs with good food only minutes walk away and a good shop. The cottage is nicely situated for both the lakes and the coast and very handy for Cartmel races.”

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 16 miles.

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline, overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming, traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is 4 miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination, at any time of year.
