    “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.

The property

Cartmel 6.6 miles.

Situated in the picturesque village of Haverthwaite, Cumbria is Bridge End Cottage, a delightful semi-detached property boasting magnificent countryside views and off-road parking.

Resting at the southern tip of the Lake District National Park this pretty character cottage is perfect for friends and families looking to escape to this glorious part of the country.

Be welcomed into the property by the hallway - already flowing with character, before moving through the cottage to discover its delights.

Amply-equipped, the kitchen/diner hosts a farmhouse table perfect for enjoying your breakfast ahead of an action-packed day of exploring; here you will also find an electric oven and hob and a Nespresso coffee machine while the décor offers a quintessential cottage feel through its exposed stone walls and white beamed ceilings.

From here, make your way to the sitting and dining room, home to another dining table where you can catch up with the group to discuss the day's events.

After a long day of exploring the local area, sink into the sofas and cuddle up with your loved ones in front of the woodburning stove, before flicking on the TV to enjoy a film as a family.

Break away from the group to enjoy a good book in the snug; offering three occasional chairs and a feature fireplace, the snug provides a tranquil space where you can admire yet more character features this property holds.

As the evening draws to a close, make your way up the stairs to the bedrooms; hosting three bedrooms, including one double, one kingsize and a twin with a zip/link feature, there are plenty of sleeping quarters for different types of groups.

Each bedroom is complete with storage so you can unpack your belongings in this home away from home.

As as well as plenty of storage, these bedrooms offer charming chairs to relax and gaze out over the garden and open fields in the mornings with a cup of tea.

Guests will benefit from a bathroom with underfloor heating, fit with a bath so you can soak your muscles after an action-packed day, as well as a basin, a heated towel rail and a WC, while back on the ground floor is another handy shower room with underfloor heating, walk-in shower, a basin and WC, so you won't be short of space to prepare for the day ahead.

Take advantage of the beautiful garden at this property; the lawn area is home to thriving wildflowers and shrubbery which you can gaze upon while savouring a glass of wine on the patio.

This stunning area of the country is home to many attractions such as the Haverthwaite Railway, which hosts a historic steam train which runs from Haverthwaite to Lakeside Station, ideal for all ages to take in the picturesque views of the Lake District.

Why not spend the day at England's largest lake, Lake Windermere, where you can stop in one of the local cafés for a bite to eat before venturing out on a lakeside cruise; or for the adventurous members of the group, try your hand at kayaking over the peaceful waters.

The thriving village of Cartmel is within easy reach of the cottage and offers an array of quirky Cumbrian shops, pubs and restaurants for you to treat yourself to a meal out.

The winding streets and narrow cobbled roads give Cartmel a charm you won't find easily elsewhere which extends to the marvellous Cartmel Priory which is still an important piece of architecture in the village's character.

Cartmel Racecourse was founded in the 12th century by the monks of the Cartmel Priory and makes for a fantastic day out for tourists and racing enthusiasts alike.

For walkers and cyclists, there are numerous routes from the doorstep of the cottage, while the Yorkshire Dales National Park is also reachable by car if you want even more spectacular views in this amazing part of the country.

For a fantastic holiday in a fantastic region, choose Bridge End Cottage.
