The Property

This delightful, end-terrace cottage is steeped in character, located in the heart of the charming and ancient priory village of Cartmel, near Lake Windermere. Surrounded by fascinating landscapes, including limestone pavements, the sands of Morecambe Bay, and beautiful fells, this Cartmel cottage is the perfect base for friends and families seeking to explore the Lake District’s southern peninsula. This traditional, whitewashed Cartmel cottage offers three wonderful bedrooms, including two double rooms and a family room, along with a ground floor bathroom. Unwind with a relaxing soak, after a day exploring this wonderful area, in the family bathroom, and prepare picnics, for those days spent out and about, in the well-equipped kitchen. Gather around the dining table and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals, with a Rayburn range to banish the cold on blustery winter nights. Retire to the sitting room and toast your toes by the gas stove, unwind with a good book, or plan tomorrow’s adventures from this wonderful Cartmel cottage. Outside, the shared courtyard offers a small patio, a lovely space for soaking up the sunshine in warm summer months. The beautiful village of Cartmel features the Cartmel Village Shop, specialising in supplying locally-sourced food, the home of sticky toffee! Spend lazy summer afternoons wandering around the village, perusing its charming selection of shops and collection of fine pubs and excellent restaurants, all sitting right on your doorstep. Why not make use of the leisure club membership available from the owner, and head down to the nearby Netherwood Hotel in Grange-over-Sands? The village racecourse is also within yards of this Cartmel cottage and frequently, horses are ridden past the cottage from their livery yard, adding to the enchantment of this lovely Lake District village. The Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands is just ten minutes’ drive away, boasting beautiful parks and gardens, and situated alongside Morecambe Bay. Fell Foot Park lies on the shores of Lake Windermere, just fifteen minutes away, with views across Lake Windermere. Lakeside is home to the ‘Aquarium of the Lakes’ and the terminus for the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Hop aboard a Windermere Steamer and cruise up the lake to visit the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, and the pretty village of Ambleside. This Cartmel cottage is ideally placed for groups of friends and families exploring the Lake District, all year round.
