    I would say that, overall, it was slighly below par for a Sykes cottage. Although it is called The Snug it wasn't especially snug. Because it doesn't get a lot of sun, and the heating was switched off, the cottage was quite cold the first night. Although the owner was quite quick to respond to a text, he only gave us an hour or so in the morning and then unilaterally decided we'd had enough bursts of warmth after two days. Luckily the weather became very hot to the extent that eventually even the cottage warmed up. Also, on the first night the ancient TV in the bedroom lost power completely and irreversibly despite my wife's heroic efforts with fuses etc, and no attempt was made to repair or replace it. Finally, at Sykes cottages there's usually a welcoming bottle of milk and some tea bags for a cup of tea to look forward to after a long drive, but not this time. Although the cottage was relatively cheap for the week, regrettably, the whole experience of it even at the price seemed a little mean-spirited.

Ideal for a romantic break to get away from it all and explore this lovely part of the country.

Upstairs there is a double bedroom with window seat, and modern walk-in shower room with shower, basin and WC.

Just a step out of the door and there is a bakery together with a pub, called the Pig and Whistle, with playing fields just over the road and just a two minute walk to the centre of Cartmel, where there is a selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants.

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.

A little further afield is the town of Grange-over-Sands where there are beautiful parks and gardens and is situated alongside Morecambe Bay.

Just fifteen minutes away are the shores of Lake Windermere where you can pick up a steamer and cruise up the lake to Bowness-on-Windermere and the pretty village of Ambleside.

The historic, South Lakeland village of Cartmel is renowned as the prettiest village in the Lake District. The Priory Church, one of the finest ecclesiastical buildings in the north of England, remains the heart of the community with its gatehouse forming the entrance to the village. The village features pretty streamside walks, quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, a charming gift shop, welcoming, traditional pubs serving real ale, the nationally acclaimed, Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant, and the Cartmel Village shop, which sells the famous sticky toffee pudding. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside, visit The National Hunt Racecourse, Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition, Lakeland Motor Museum and Holker Hall with its spectacular gardens, all of which are close by.
