  • "Lovely setting."

    Very well maintained cottage with great attention to comfort and all modern conveniences. Spacious and very well situated for easy short walks to Cartmel - highly recommended - and other destinations. Great pub and useful shop within 50 yards of front door. Very practical stay for dog owners. Would recommend without hesitation!

  • "It was a pleasure to stay yet again in a Sykes Cottage and Rose Cottage at Cark, certainly came up to the mark."

    The cottage was warm as soon as we entered inside which was immaculate and clean, all the rooms were spacious and decorated to a high standard. The bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and lounge I could not fault and I look forward to returning! From our part of Lancashire to this part of the county is not to far for me to drive. Nigel J Dawson.

  • "A well presented and maintained cottage that made for a superb holiday."

    Well located for visiting the lakes and other attractions in the area yet far enough away from the visiting masses. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future.

  • "I have stayed in many holiday cottages over the last 10 years since we got our first dog and I have never stayed in such a clean property."

    Considering it was over 3 floors, the building was spotless!! The only shame was that we picked the house because it was close to a public house called the Engine Inn which took dogs and it was incredibly disappointing. The staff appeared drunk and despite serving food, they told us they weren't serving any more despite it being only 7pm. The staff were rude and unpleasant and it certainly spoilt one of our nights. Nothing to do with the house as it was perfect and would definitely visit again.

  • "Stayed in a few cottages in the same village."

    The cottage is easy to locate and in a central position for the village and the surrounding shops, pubs, restaurants and a lovely artisan bakery in the square. Extremely clean and well equipped with everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed. As the property is old the bedrooms are across 2 floors with a steep staircase to the twin and single room. All the bedrooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe and draw space. There is no parking which may be an issue for some people, although there are places to park on the main road and on the side roads close to the property. Perfect location to visit many places on foot if you want to take advantage of the surrounding countryside, Grange-over-Sands,Holker Hall and Cartmel. Perfect location for us visiting Cartmel Races on the Sunday, would certainly book again.

  • "Loved our stay at Rose Cottage."

    Fab area with shop and pub on the doorstep. Great walks for the dogs. Never a problem to park. The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated, clean and had everything we needed. Thanks for the extra touches of milk, tea and biscuits and the routes for a some local walks . Had some great days out in the Lakes, only regret is we should have booked in for longer!

  • "We loved our time at Rose Cottage and would recommend it highly to other visitors."

    We felt enormously welcome from the moment we entered. The owners had made every effort to create a warm home for us - thoughtfully providing a bottle of wine, delicious titbits and lovely Christmas decorations (including a tree!) in addition to "necessities" such as tea bags and milk. The cottage is very comfortably furnished and extremely well-equipped with everything you could want for a delightful stay. We left a coat behind and the owners immediately contacted us to arrange to return it. We are really grateful for their thoughtfulness in this respect.

  • "The property was very nice, clean and had everything you need."

    We had lots of rain so we enjoyed Sky & Netflix & WiFi. It has very steep stairs to get upstairs to bedrooms & toilett so not great for very small children or old people. But really comfy, clean and well equipped cottage. Lovely village to walk around, however the road can be very busy. The Engine Inn wasn't very friendly unfortunately and you do have to book in advance even mid week if you want to dine there. The shop opposite is very convenient and friendly. The Holker Hall is beautiful and lovely to visit and their afternoon tea is massive and tasty. Grange is not far and lovely walk on promenade. Windermere lake is close and worth to take the boat ride around the lake. We had a very wet but lovely stay. The only thing I missed in the property was some instructions about bins? Or recycling instructions? Took us a bit to find the main bin.

    Nicely and comfortably furnished and right at heart of the village. There's a shop and a pub right across the road. Kitchen had everything we needed though with 4 of us there was just enough room round the table in the kitchen! We had two dogs with us and there is easy access to country lanes for walking and fresh air.
