Caton Lane House is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Caton Lane House is a magnificent Grade II Listed home in the small village of Cark. Lovingly updated, the cottage offers beautiful self-catering accommodation for up to 10 people. On the ground floor is the characterful living room with wood burning stove, modern kitchen, dining room, cosy snug and cloakroom with WC. On the first floor are two spacious king- size rooms, a splendid super-king room, a cosy double bedroom and the family bathroom. The fifth bedroom, a twin with its own en suite shower room, is up on the second floor. Beautiful period features sit alongside modern comforts: you really do have the best of both worlds in this delightful home-from-home. For those bringing their dog or who simply enjoy walking, the house sits on Caton Lane which is a lovely country lane taking you out to Morecambe Bay only 10 minutes away. Great for exercising the dog and blowing away the cobwebs.
Cark is a small, peaceful village with two pubs, a village shop and a handy railway station. There are lots of local footpaths to follow or spend a day exploring historic Holker Hall and its beautiful gardens. Walk along the promenade at nearby Grange-over-Sands or visit the charming village of Cartmel, just a 5-minute drive away. Enjoy some fine dining at the Michelin Starred L'Enclume restaurant. Another treat for foodies is the village's famous sticky toffee pudding, be sure to stock up whilst you're there!
Both the beautiful South Lakes and the magnificent Cumbrian Coast are within easy reach from Caton Lane House, so it's ideally placed for exploring either (or both!). This part of the county is also a hit with many different species of wildlife: explore the nature reserves at Warton Crag and Gait Barrows or the RSPB nature reserve at Leighton Moss. Less than a 20 minute drive away is Ulverston, a vibrant market town with a great selection of independent shops and cafes. The birthplace of Stan Laurel, Ulverston is also home to the world's only Laurel and Hardy Museum - a must for any comedy fan. Windermere is perfect for a day's exploration: enjoy a lakeside picnic at Fell Foot lakeshore park before visiting The Lakeside Aquarium or the Stott Park Bobbin Mill to learn all about the industrial heritage of the area.
