This delightful terraced, former weaver’s cottage is situated in the quaint village of Cark in Cartmel next to the River Eea.
Located only eight miles from Lake Windermere and within two miles of the priory village of Cartmel, this comfortable cottage is ideal for a family or couples to enjoy this scenic area.
You enter the property into the lovely open plan living area with its well-equipped kitchen where the chef amongst you can prepare delicious meals, which can be enjoyed together around the dining table.
A step up leads into the sitting area with its cosy window seat that overlooks the river, the perfect place to curl up with a good book, or relax on the comfy sofa in front of the warming woodburning stove.
Upstairs are two well-appointed bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with both a bath and separate shower.
To the rear there is an outside area and to the front of the property there is a seating area which overlooks the river, where you can relax with a morning coffee in the tranquil surroundings and watch out for the local wildlife.
The village of Cark is home to a shop and a couple of pubs which are all within an easy stroll of the cottage.
Holker Hall with its garden and deer park is within walking distance and is well worth a visit.
The village of Cartmel is a short drive away with its pretty cobbled streets, gift shops and restaurants and of course may tempt you to a flutter at the famous racecourse.
Further afield the whole of the Lake District National Park beckons.
Why not travel to the tip of Lake Windermere and enjoy a boat trip or lace up those boots and take to the hills?
At the end of a busy day out, return to this cosy cottage in this quiet corner of Cumbria.
