Longlands Cottages

Cartmel 1 mile. Dating back to the early 19th Century, these three Cartmel cottages are situated on the magnificent Longlands country house estate, on the fringes of the village of Cartmel in the Lake District. Occupying a commanding position at the foot of Hampsfell hills with sweeping views across the Cartmel valley and approached via a private driveway through beautiful parkland, these three Cartmel cottages are sure to impress with their grandeur and charm. Tucked away behind the main house, these three Cartmel cottages have been created out of what was originally the servants’ quarters and the stable blocks. Longlands has a superb walled kitchen-garden overflowing with the freshest natural produce just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. These three Cartmel cottages offer the perfect base for exploring the Lake District and Cumbria and a warm welcome will be extended to all.

    • “longlands cottages,Stress free weekend, self catering at its best”

    • “The Game Keeper's Retreat, Longlands at Cartmel Sleeps two, with separate kitchen. Ideal for the dog , we've been visiting here for fifteen years now and it just gets better with time. With huge gardens to walk the dog and everything you need on arrival. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we didn't have to ask for anything once, living in the old cottage atmosphere with all of the modern luxuries combined with the newly refurbished kitchen and two person bath / shower room and the fantastic king sized bed. If you want to take the beloved dogs then this is the place for us, the most pet friendly hotel in the Lakes without the usual hassles associated with weekend breaks. The newly rebuilt barn is a feature on its own just adds character to the place and the addition of the new greenhouses and conservatory will just add even more character to the fantastic walled Edwardian Kitchen Garden. A great location for a base to explore the south Lakes with excellent amenities and super food at the nearby Derby Arms in Lindale....cant wait until our next visit...............................”

    • “The Coach House was all I ever thought a cottage should be. It was absolutely beautiful and it was in the most beautiful setting. I just cannot put into words just how perfect this cottage was and I really appreciate the owners allowing me to rent it for a short while. The weekend will stay with me and my wife to be for the rest of our lives. Thanks a million.”

    Mr Robinson, Washington, October 2015

    • “A very quiet and relaxing location with easy access to attractions but remote enough to be out of the hustle and bustle. The cottage was great for my solo break but equally good for a couple. The bed was very comfortable and the roll top bath a real luxury.”

    Ms Prew, Wigston, April 2015

    • “The owner was very welcoming and helpful. It was in a perfect location for walks and the site is very dog friendly!”

    Miss Dovey, Alfreton, September 2014

    • “A lovely detached cottage which was located in its own grounds and gardens in a very quiet and peaceful place. The cottage was quite spacious but also cosy and had a lovely 4 poster bed in the large bedroom. On the whole I had a wonderful holiday.”

    Mrs Levy, Stockport, August 2014

    • “Liked the setting of the property, the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. We found it perfect for the dog who could roam around the gardens. Lots of easy walks and ease of access to the A590 to go to other destinations.”

    Mr Main, Kingswinford, July 2014

    • “Completely dog friendly with walks straight from the cottage, yet only 1 mile from the beautiful village of Cartmel.”

    Mr Corkery, St. Helens, June 2014

    • “We had a fantastic time. The cottage was lovely, cosy and homely and the grounds really fabulous. We loved the feeling of freedom. The countryside around the cottage is stunning, with a fell right out of the back gate which we climbed every day for views over the estuary on one side and over to the Conniston mountains on the other. The dog loved it - so much space to run around! It was perfect for us and we will be booking again next year. The perfect break and just what we needed!”

    Miss Barron, Scarborough, April 2014

    • “This is our second time at this property this year, and I think that speaks volumes. We always have a good relaxing holiday here.”
