The property

Shamrock Cottage sits in the small village of Allithwaite near Grange-over-Sands, on the southern tip of the Cartmel Peninsula.

Resting in a quiet area near the market town of Kendal, it is a cosy, traditional dwelling perfect for a small family or couple.

Explore Morecambe Bay and a whole host of other attractions before being welcomed back into the cosy lounge.

Wrap yourselves around the woodburner and enjoy the company of your loved ones while you chat about your adventures over a hot brew.

The kitchen is small and compact, yet equipped enough for some home-cooking while you are away, complete with a dining table set for three.

Climb the carpeted staircase and half way up the landing you will find the family bathroom, well-appointed for those early mornings getting ready for the day ahead.

From the kitchen is a back door leading up to the raised garden accessed via a set of steep steps, unsuitable for very small children yet a perfect little suntrap for you to soak up a balmy evening.

Pretty sunsets can be enjoyed on the patio with a glass of wine in hand and views over green fields towards Morecambe Bay as you reflect on the day.

Allithwaite conveniently offers a local pub and you can find a shop and Post Office in Grange-over-Sands, a quiet resort nearby with plenty of things to occupy your time in and around the area.

The Cartmel Peninsula is a lesser known part of Cumbria, yet boasts the qualities of a true hidden gem, with rolling fells and a patchwork of meadows interlaced with quiet country lanes.

Walking and cycling come in abundance and you have a host of towns and villages worth a visit.

Attractions of the region include Holker Hall and Gardens, a privately owned country house, the verdant hilltop of Arnside Knott, while the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway in the Leven Valley allows you to travel back in time on one of its steam trains.

You have plenty to see and do, with a charming retreat you will want to book time and again.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L’Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
