  • Mrs Mcdonald

    “The apartment was very clean and very well equipped, spacious for two people, we had an very enjoyable week.”


    The only downfall we found was, the main bed had not been made up properly, the bottom sheet was a single size and did not tuck in on any off the mattress sides, having two bedrooms we took the double sheet of the spare bed. If two couples were using this apartment the second bedroom is small and the bed is pushed against the wall. There is a dedicated car parking spot, we encountered someone else using it and could not find which property was using it, the car never moved the whole time we where there, we did leave a note on the windscreen, this is obviously out of the owners or Sykes control.

The property

This well-presented second-floor apartment rests in the unspoilt village of Cark-in-Cartmel, just south of the Lake District National Park.

The cosy lounge will welcome your return after a day of touring the Lake District, complete with two sofas and a Smart TV to access all your favourite shows.

Prepare a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen, kitted-out with all the essentials appliances for a self-catering break, along with an elegant glass dining table where all can sit to discuss the next holiday adventure.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the double or single bedroom, both tastefully furnished and housing plenty of storage for all of your personal belongings.

Cark-in-Cartmel makes a lovely holiday base with two traditional pubs serving fine foods and local shops for picking up the essentials.

There is also a railway line which provides easy access to a number of towns and villages across the Lake District so you can leave the car behind.

Nearby is Holker Hall and Gardens, the home of Lord and Lady Cavendish who welcome visitors of all ages to one of the best-loved stately homes in Britain.

Be sure to visit Grange-over-Sands, a tranquil Edwardian resort of the Cumbrian coast just on your doorstep or take advantage of the superb amenities within Bowness and Windermere in the Lake District.

The Lake District is also famed for its many local attractions, some of which include the mountains of Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Buttermere, ideal for those long scenic walks.

Discover the romantic poet William Wordsworth’s amazing life by visiting Dove Cottage and Wordsworth Museum – a must-see attraction for any literary lover.

Use 6 Cark House as your base for exploring all that this wonderful area has to offer.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 16 miles.

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public and also now home to a licensed brasserie The Ilex. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is four miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.
