    The owners left a nice little basket of goodies and fizz which is a lovely touch at a time when everyone else seems to want to cut costs , little things like that go a long way . Only criticism ….. I wish there was extra bedrooms so I could bring more family and friends to enjoy this lovely place :-) Thank you for helping make our 10th Wedding Anniversary a memorable one . Will return soon hopefully .

    Thank you Anthony for your lovely review. I did have to smile when I read your ‘criticism’ :). So glad to hear we helped in making your 10th Wedding Anniversary a memorable one.

    We really enjoyed our weekend stay here - very comfortable and everything we wanted. We arrived to a lovely personalized welcome board, and basket, packed with bread, butter, jam, biscuits,.....milk in the fridge, and a bottle of Prosecco,and two glasses, - a really lovely touch. Very spacious all round and very comfortable....would definitely recommend, and want to return to. A lovely find. I needed to contact the owner the day before our visit - received the confirmation I needed and she also mentioned about leaving a parking permit for us to park free on the nearby streets in a particular zone.....a great help!

    Julie, thank you for your lovely review. Nice to meet you on the phone too! So glad you would like to return, Cartmel is such a lovely place. Glad we were able to help make your stay enjoyable. Makes it all worthwhile to hear such positive feedback. With kind regards, Paula & Coert Property Owner

  • "The apartment overall was lovely although unfortunately we did find a few negatives!"

    The welcome pack was very much appreciated and the parking permit was great. I know you can’t really do anything about the layout but we found the bedroom huge and the bathroom tiny, and we did struggle a bit with that. We had awful weather so spent quite a lot of time inside the apartment and found the settee in the lounge very uncomfortable. The channels available on the TV were great. Unfortunately my Husband didn’t sleep too well as he said his side of the bed sloped down at his side (left side as you stand at the bottom), my side was fine! We were disturbed quite early on Wednesday morning by the painters that were doing work on the outside of the building! Overall we had a lovely break, we had our first holiday together in Cartmel, nearly 30 years ago! We had a lovely meal every night at the many pubs there are in Cartmel, we were spoilt for choice!

    Thank you for your thorough feedback. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Cartmel. We did warn you about the exterior being painted and offered our cleaner’s parking permit to compensate for any incovenience but still, it’s a shame you were disturbed by the decorators. The work had been scheduled to be carried out while the apartment was empty but unfortunately the job was pushed back. We will check out the bed and re-evaluate the sofa but as you say nothing we can do about layout I’m afraid. Thanks for taking the time to review. With kind regards, Paula & Coert Property Owner

  • "Thank you Paula and Coert, your apartment is beautiful, and the lovely welcoming touch of the food and wine basket was much appreciated."

    The location and apartment are stunning and perfect for visiting the lakes and surrounding events, we had an excellent week, weather allowing of course. A couple of small things that would add greatly if possible to the experience, parking as you know can be difficult at popular times, if possible the temporary use of a local permit would be great, particularily for disabled clients, allowing parking closer to the property. If possible the addition of a clothes washer/drier would be a great addition if it can be fitted in, of great benefit especially in bad weather for walkers cyclists and others etc.. These are small additions that would be an attractive benefit enhancing visitor pleasure increasing the appeal of 1 Tower House facilities and add further to a very enjoyable visit. Thank you so much, 1 Tower House is now high on our favourite places list for the Lake District. Kind Regards Allan and Christine Gilchrist

    Thank you Allan & Christine for taking the time to write such a full and lovely review. We really appreciate your feedback. I agree, a washer/ drier would be great but we’ve not been able to accommodate it within the kitchen (as it is now) unfortunately. As a non-resident we don’t have a spare parking permit I’m afraid. Despite that, great to hear our apartment is high on your favourite Lake District places. With kind regards, Paula & Coert Property Owner

    The welcome you get when you arrive is fab - and I am assuming as winter it makes it more special with the lights. I love the little touches with decor, books and games - and the fact that the cupboard is kept with loads of things that normally people throw away. I have been to places with no salt or anything. There is other nice things and surprises - but I wouldn’t want your next guests to read as we didn’t and that is what made it more special. Cartmel is a lovely little village and has been one of our favourites for many years. Especially cavendish and Unsworth yard. Lovely welcoming people. Unsworth now do fab tapas and highly recommend.

  • "We had a very relaxing time."

    The flat was very clean, beautifully decorated with lovely paintings and was very comfortable with every amenity provided for. The bed was large and extremely luxurious, so much so that we struggled getting out of it in the morning. The towels smelt lovely, please let us know what you use to wash them. The welcome gift pack together with the wine and the fresh flowers, especially the single rose on the bed were extra nice touches. Although we couldn’t park directly outside the property, there were safe parking areas free at the side of the road near the race course. Cartmel is a quaint village which you can walk around easily with a good small supermarket and other shops / coffee shops to buy refreshments and souvenirs. There are 4 pubs, one being directly across the road from Tower House however we didn’t experience any noise from there. We thoroughly recommend the Unsworth Brewery where you can have cocktails and craft ale and has an outside drinking space with heaters. There is also a restaurant, Oscars. We appreciate the building is grade 2 listed and sometimes there can faults with it which are hard to rectify. The shower flow was powerful however the drainage was slower to drain away and therefore had to keep turning the shower off mid way to let it drain. The basin hot tap shuddered and made a loud noise as if it had an air lock. However these minor details did not detract from the brilliant stay that we had at 1 Tower House. We would thoroughly recommend it and would have no hesitation in returning. Thank you for making our holiday special.

    Thank you for leaving such a thorough review, we’re so glad to hear you enjoyed the flat and had such a special time in Cartmel. Just to let you know, the plumber’s already booked to check the taps and drain, thank you for bringing that to our attention. With kind regards, Paula & Coert Property Owner
