    It was situated in peaceful beautiful surroundings. The only point I would make was there was no facility to make any ice for our gin and tonics.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Cottage was absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. Comfy beds and scenic countryside surrounding us. Having a warden on the site was also very helpful. Doorway leading to section where bathroom and bedrooms are is low, which may cause headache for taller people. As long as you remember to mind your head, you're fine. Pleasantly beds were long enough even for 6 foot+ Many thanks!

  • "Nice cottage, comfortable beds and living room, well furnished and facilities good."

    Parking easy. Good directions, easy and convenient collection of keys. Not a very safe road to walk along into Cartmel in the dark, for a drink or a meal, but it’s easy to park in the racecourse, next to the town centre. One comment for visitors, if you come in the winter as we did, bring your slippers and the floors are tiled or stone in the living room, kitchen and bathroom.

    Thank you very much for your feedback Jonathan. I am glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage. All the best Bridget Property Owner

  • "We were very pleased with the cottage and our holiday, it did not disappoint from the good and accurate description to our comfortable stay and not having to go without anything."

    The owner clearly has thought this out and made it a real home that is cosy and catered for all. The cottage is in fine decoration and the sofas and beds are extremely comfortable. It is quiet and relaxing and plenty to see and do without having to travel too far. You are situated as an apartment within a bigger overall building and the garden is not exclusive so not exactly private but it has been very well done. We can recommend this cottage and would stay again no question, thank you.

  • "The coachmans cottage and surrounding grounds were immaculate."

    The house was very comfortable and clean. Everything was in good working order and great condition. The kitchen area was easy to work in, my one criticism would be that it would benefit from some larger oven dishes as we like to cook at home. I appreciate it is probably perfectly adequate under other circumstances. We would go back as it is located within easy walking distance from Cartmel without having to worry about parking in this busy village.

    The cottage is spacious, clean and comfortable with a lake right outside where ducks swim with their young. Loved feeding them and watching them then feed the little ones. Quiet, quaint, relaxing and a sun trap. Had beautiful weather the whole week we were there. Lots of leaflets in the cottage to browse through on where to visit and thank you so much Bridget for the lovely lemon cake, beautiful fresh flowers in a vase on the table (it was my mothers 80th) and basics like tea bags and milk etc to start us off. Plenty of hot water whenever we needed it too. All in all, the holiday was just perfect and I'd absolutely recommend 100%!

    The Coachmans was absolutely perfect. So homely! The furnishings and fittings are of exceptional quality. The bedrooms spacious and beds so comfy. Everything thought of.throughout the cottage. A perfect setting for exploring, yet off the beaten track. Plenty of safe parking available on site. Cartmel is a short walk away and great for eating out. Plenty of walks from the door, many 4mls circular, we did the walk to Holker Hall and also the fell walk to Grange, which takes you through the golf course. We're looking forward to returning and continuing the local walks! Can't wait to stay again and it'll be for longer next time!
