The property

This beautifully-presented, end-terrace cottage is located in the hamlet of Newton in Cartmel, three miles from Cartmel in the Lake District National Park.

This wonderful cottage is set over three floors and from the top floor there are far-reaching views towards the Old Man of Coniston.

From the cottage-style kitchen/diner, step next door into the spacious but cosy sitting room with a fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove and traditional beams.

This is a delightful room to relax in after a day full of activities.

Alternatively why not open the French door to the superb, elevated garden with a lawn, mature plants and a summerhouse with electricity?

Sit in the garden and enjoy the privacy, bird song and excellent views to Newton Fell with family or friends.

The hamlet has a butcher and a pub which was formerly a 17th century inn serving local ales and locally sourced food.

Within walking distance is the popular Yew Tree Barn, which has antiques for sale, a gallery, arts and crafts, an artisan fair, and you may wish to enjoy breakfast or afternoon tea at the on-site cafe.

The pretty village of Cartmel is nearby, home to the smallest racecourse with race meets throughout the year, gastropubs and restaurants, including the Michelin star rated L’Enclume restaurant, along with a glorious 12th century priory.

Newby Bridge is also on your doorstep where you can enjoy cruises to Bowness across the lake.

The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway is nearby, where you can travel by steam train 3.5 miles via Newby Bridge to Haverthwaite.

Close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere, but also close to Morecambe Bay, this cottage is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area.
