  • "We felt very much at home in the cottage."

    It is very comfortable and the Aga stove kept the sitting room warm and cosy in the evenings. The kitchen is easy to work in and we loved the underfloor heating in the shower and bath rooms and the easy to sweep flag and wooden floors. A real bonus was the access into the fenced garden, which made it easy to take the dog out in the morning and evening. The footpaths both across the field to Low Wood and the bridleway and to Greenodd (sheep free at the time) meant that I could let our dog off the lead. High Dam is another safe place, as is the beach at Askam, but there are many lovely walks nearby. Haverthwaite is a friendly village and ideally placed to access the Lakes, the Cartmel peninsula and the quieter west coast and Western Lake District. We saw a lot of our family too! The owner was very helpful and friendly and we thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage.

  • "Characterful, well presented cottage with cosy logburner for winter stays."

    Well equipped with thoughtful touches.Plenty of parking.Very welcoming host. Nice woodland walks nearby and enclosed dog friendly garden. Larger driveway mirrors would be helpful to negotiate the concealed entryway and exit. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Bridge End Cottage.

  • "Excellent location, well equipped new kitchen, and cosy living room with log burner."

    A river at the bottom of the garden leading to beautiful walks. Thanks for a perfect stay & the bottle of bubbly in the fridge! Would highly recommend and will definitely stay again :-)

  • "A lovely place to stay nice to have a log fire burning in the evenings."

    Being able to let the dog out in the garden knowing it was fenced off gave us peace of mind. We had everything we needed plenty big enough and very clean. Very enjoyable holiday spent there.

  • "The downstairs shower kept escaping out of the bathroom so could probably do with a longer shower screen."

    Lovely cottage in a great location. Lots of utensils to use in the kitchen which came in handy.

  • "The cottage was all we hoped for and more."

    So comfortable with thoughtful items provided - waterproof OS maps, books of walks, netflix, logs and kindling, coffee pods....... I could go on. The cottage is much bigger than I though and the pictures don't do it justice, which was a welcome surprise. The bed was comfy, the shower was excellent and loads of fluffy towels.... We ate twice at the Anglers Arms, just up the road, they served decent food at reasonable prices, don't be put off because it looks a little tired.

About the location


Grange-over-Sands 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 12 miles.

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. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings and mountain backdrop, is a mere 2 miles away, whilst Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a thirty minute drive. A superb holiday destination, at any time of year.
