    Mr Bartlett

    “This beautifully decorated house had only one problem, the noise of the water pump in the kitchen was enough to drive you mad.”

    It came on constantly and could be heard through out the house. Otherwise and it's setting was as near perfect as you could hope for.

    It came on constantly and could be heard through out the house. Otherwise and it's setting was as near perfect as you could hope for. We would make a return booking if it was not for that constant racket.

    Our 200 year old cottage relies on a well for its water supply, which surprisingly even though it lies in the heart of the lake district, can often run dry. To be able to cope with a plentiful supply of hot water for showers and the 2 beautiful large baths we have also added a tank to top up the well when needed. A pump is needed to get the water from the well to the house, which is located in the kitchen and does make a mild noise only whilst in use. This system works well and has never been an issue for ourselves or the last owners who lived very happily there for 30 years. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Newby Bridge 4.8; Grange-over-Sands 8.2 miles.

Cartmel Fell is a hamlet and a civil parish in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, England. The village of Cartmel and Cartmel Priory lie in Lower Allithwaite, to the south: Cartmel Fell church is about seven miles north of Cartmel Priory. Wherever you choose to stay you will discover a selection of attractions to visit nearby. And for the adventurous, the outdoor activity in the Windermere area boasts almost every imaginable opportunity. Bowness-on-Windermere rests on the east shore and the busiest tourist destination in the Lake District. Ambleside, at the northern tip of the lake, is also very popular with visitors. Newby Bridge at the south end of the lake is slightly less well known and therefore a little quieter. It is connected to the lake cruises route via a short journey on the steam railway. Other notable visitor locations around Windermere are the wonderful Coniston, Rydal and Grasmerevillages. Hawkshead, Sawrey and Troutbeck and the Langdales are all close by.
