  • “Mary the cottage owner was exceptionally helpful and went out of her way to ensure that we were able to enjoy our holiday.”

    The welcome pack was extremely generous and got us of to a good start and the help given in enabling us to log into their wi fi was invaluable. When Mary heard that our car sat nav had packed up she arranged the loan of a unit to help us find our way round for the week.

Hosting a living/dining room with an electric stove, enjoy snuggling up with your loved one to watch some TV after an adventurous day out, during the Winter period Cartmel Priory can be clearly seen from the window.

From here, take advantage of the kitchen, which hosts an electric oven and hob so you can whip up delicious meals to enjoy at the dining table, and a handy dishwasher to make cleaning up a breeze.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way back downstairs to rest your head in the plush king-size.
