  • "Absolutely amazing property for our stay."

    The kitchen is fitted out beautifully with everything you could possibly need to entertain is provided probably one of the best I've stayed in. The log burner is fab in the very cosy living room. Beds were super comfy and the snug on the 1st floor is a great place to chill in the evenings or mornings when gathering with friends and family. The hot tub is a fab size and spotlessly clean , beach towels are also provided which is an added bonus. Take time to read the welcome book this gives you all the info you need very helpful. Thank you for the chocolates and tea coffee and hot choclate supplies nice touch. We had an amazing stay and will definitely be booking again. We met John the owner as we was leaving lovely man thank you, your family house is beautiful !

    We’re glad you enjoyed a great weekend at Clock Tower. Thank you for your kind review. We hope to welcome you back soon. John & Charlotte Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous stay."

    The Clock Tower has everything covered. The place was picturesque, and the building was huge. All rooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The kitchen is superior to many we have stayed in, with everything you would need to cook a three-course meal if needed. All towels were included, plus separate towels for the hot tub. The Hot tub had been checked over whilst we were out, we thought that excellent. Plus another nice touch was the gift of box of chocolates left on arrival in the kitchen. The beds were comfy and bedding of top quality, we all have the best sleep as it's so peaceful. The Bathrooms are arge and easy to manouvre, showers perfect and lovely and modern. The Garden was well manicured and had lovely setting and everything covered for a barbeque. Parking was great, I think we were the only people there for the 3 nights we were at the Clock Tower, so it was very peaceful. We loved the spiral staircase, but found it a little difficult, as we are an older crowd ranging from late 60's to late 70's. But we managed perfectly even with mobility issues. Overall, this was a superb stay, with everything in reach within a 15 minute drive, (small towns in the lakes etc.with bars, cruising the lakes and wonderful restaurants) It's truly an incredible place. Thank you.

    We’re glad you enjoyed your weekend at Clock Tower. You’ll be welcome back anytime. Charlotte & John Property Owner

  • "It was an excellent stay for 7 adults and 2 babies, reasonable price compared to rest of Cumbria and very well stocked house, with a great hot tub!"

    Easy walk into Cartmel for a few drinks and food. Would highly recommend, the negative reviews don’t really stack up, it is definitely as advertised and we never saw anyway else at the property!

  • "Fantastic week long stay at this property."

    House was extremely clean and tidy when we arrived. We loved the "little touches" that this property has, and you can tell that the owners haven't skimped on the quality of the items that they've purchased for the house. Lovely outside area, and also some fantastic walks around the local area. The Hot Tub is a great addition and was maintained every day.

    The hot tub was well used and it was lovely to have our own garden with seating and BBQ. It was the ideal place to celebrate a special family birthday with three generations of our family..

  • "Beautiful property, located in a lovely place."

    Wouldn’t recommend for families with small children/toddlers. The beautiful spiral stair case is lethal for small children. Hot tub is not private. It’s situated at the front of the property within the car park which is utilised by other properties. Property owner seems a little obsessed with it and not Particularly friendly. Attended several times a day and even tested water when we were in it. This left us very uncomfortable and unwilling to use it again. Wouldn’t stay at the property again.

  • "The Clocktower is an amazing place to stay."

    It’s really comfortable, perfectly clean, and has everything you will need. The kitchen in particular is very well stocked with utensils, plates, glasses etc. The hot tub is great too. It’s a really quirky property and it feels like the owners have put a lot of thought and live into it. It feels like a home away from home. It is really well situated as well so close to a lot of great pubs to eat in, shops etc. I would really recommend it!

    Enjoyed the most: - location - character - hot tub - great selection of items in the kitchen - generous welcome pack - loo roll and all sorts - met the owner. So lovely to talk to and attentive. - children loved the TV corner on the first floor landing whilst adults enjoyed the log fire (and quiet)

  • "Had a great stay at the Clock Tower over Christmas."

    The owners had put up Christmas decorations which was a nice touch. The house was perfect and better than the photos on the website suggested. Facilities were faultless. The hot tub was a brilliant addition and the log burner made for cosy nights in watching Christmas TV. Hosts couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend.

  • "Excellent property."

    Great location for exploring nearby town(s). Very well equipped kitchen and other facilities - everything had been thought of. I don’t recall reading in the description that the two upper floor rooms were in the eves and this was a little struggle with two 6ft-plus guests but it was manageable for a couple of nights. A great find. Would recommend and will be back
