    “The only constructive suggestion would be to have blackout blinds/curtains in the rear bedroom In summer the current situation is the arrival of a well lit dawn at 4.”

About the property

This well-presented, detached house is situated in the village of Cartmel in Cumbria, offering a warm and welcoming stay all year round.

Families or friends can make the most of this beautiful location and feel right at home amongst the lovely interior.

Enter into the well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare those home-cooked meals throughout the day or rest at the breakfast bar with a warm drink in the morning hours.

The dining room is close by, with seating for six, and a charming feature fireplace that sets a cosy ambience.

Continue through to the sitting room, where you can relax on the comfortable sofas and feel right at home with your loved ones.

A cloakroom also lies on the ground floor.

Take the stairs and you will arrive at two double bedrooms, one with access to a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom and a second accompanied by an en-suite shower room.

For the children, a twin bedroom promises a good night's sleep, with a zip and link option to match your needs.

On a nice day, why not spend some time in the enclosed garden, perhaps reading a good book, enjoying some 'me time'.

This beautiful location boasts views to the Priory in the heart of the village and you can embrace pretty streamside walks, quaint cobbled streets, antique shops and a charming gift shop.

There are plenty of fine pubs and excellent restaurants, all sitting right on your doorstep including the Michelin-starred restaurant L'Enclume and Rogan & Co just around the corner.

The village racecourse is not far from the cottage and seeing the racehorses coming and going adds to the charm of staying in this area.

The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings and mountain backdrop, is a mere two miles away, whilst Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive.
