    The small estate where the cottage is situated is very quiet and peaceful, plus it is literally a five minute walk to the very well stocked local shop and pub which is opposite the shop. We have stayed at many holiday cottages in the UK over the years this is up there with the very best. Well done Emily, you’re doing everything right!!

    Although it is in a courtyard setting with several other properties it was very quiet and peaceful. The complimentary toiletries and the welcome pack including a bottle of Prosecco were a lovely extra touch. Location was good - there’s a handy local shop and pub within walking distance and it’s not far to the coast at Grange over Sands or up to Lake Windermere. Would definitely recommend.

    Comfy beds and crisp linen. Exceptionally equipped. Nice touches especially the Prosecco as a welcome gift. The dog loved it although it was a challenge to keep her off the comfy sofa haha. She is tiny and used to snuggling with us. She soon settled. The dog box of tricks was a fantastic addition. Only 1 tiny thing was that we couldn't find any glasses etc as they were all in the dishwasher. However it was reassuring that they were all spotless for our stay. The area is beautiful and the local pub (The Engine) was welcoming however I would not recommend eating there, our meals were not nice at all. Travel out for food...we would happily stay again. Thank you

  • "It isn’t often you find a property with a full 5* rating on here."

    I initially thought the place must be new to the holiday market with maybe a couple of reviews but it isn’t. And you know what? Every 5* review is thoroughly deserved. The property and everything in it is just perfect. The owners are quite rightly particular about cleanliness. The beds and furniture are all very comfortable. The heating was set to come on three times a day and even in mid-November the house was comfortably warm. I thoroughly enjoyed my week here with my daughter and did some exploring of the southern Lakes, much of which is within easy reach from Cark where, close to the house, you’ll find a convenience shop, a pub and a restaurant. I have no hesitation at all in also rewarding with a full 5* rating.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Jennys Cottage, it was immaculately clean and very comfortable."

    It was ideally situated for easy access to both Lakes and coast so you had the best of both worlds. If you are taking your dog everything was thought of, they left dog bowls, blankets and towels should we need, a little jar of biscuits which my dog was very grateful for, as well as biscuits a fantastic tea and coffee selection and a bottle in the fridge for us grown ups. My only one little negative, which I didn't bring up with the owner as didn't effect us but may do if you are a family of 4, is that the hot water was a little sparse, the heating though was perfect. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

The property

Set in a small cul-de-sac, surrounded by a group of other charming properties, is this delightful semi-detached cottage.

This property is just as suitable for friends as it is for families, its superb layout is ideal and its location to the village of Cark-in-Cartmel gives access to some excellent pubs, which make it exceptional.

Enter into the spacious open-plan living space, with a large corner sofa to cosy up under a blanket with the provided TV as your entertainment.

There is a small desk area, ideal for studying, reading or planning the day's events at, with a bookcase holding a selection of books and board games for those quieter evenings.

The sitting room benefits from a set of patio doors, which look out over the garden and add an abundance of natural light to the property.

The kitchen has a set of wooden units and sleek granite worktops, holding all the necessary appliances for rustling up some home-cooked meals, with a dining area to accompany and where you can toast to a wonderful holiday.

Choose from a super-king-size bedroom with zip and link features, easily made into two singles upon request, or a double.

Each bedroom has a selection of contemporary furniture for storage purposes and lovely bedside tables and lamps for some late night reading.

Step out to the rear enclosed patio area where you can sit during the summer months with a refreshing drink, there is also a shed in the garden which can be used for storage of outdoor items and there is a BBQ too.

Cark-in-Cartmel is an excellent village with a convenience store for picking up any last-minute ingredients for an evening meal, or some pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening.

Discover the 400-year-old Holker Hall and Gardens, the home of Lord and Lady Cavendish, perfect for exploring at any time of year.

The cottage also benefits from being close to the beautiful Lake District National Park, where you can explore many rural sites with your four-legged friend by your side.

Lake Windermere is hugely popular for a variety of watersporting opportunities, particularly sailing, fishing and kayaking.

The Lake District gives access to a number of bustling towns such as Kendal, Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick, all rich with tourist attractions.

Literature lovers will delight in exploring Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum, the former home of famous poet William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy who constructed the country garden outside themselves.

Jenny's Cottage is the perfect holiday home for making memories that will last.
