Enjoy discovering the natural beauty of the Lake District from this cottage in Cartmel, 5.5 miles from Lake Windermere and less than 1 mile from the fringes of the national park. Sleeping six guests, and also welcoming a duo of delighted dogs, the comfortable cottage comes with a wood burner for cosy nights in and a courtyard garden for summer evenings. Wander into the village to dine out in one of its eateries; venture less than 2 miles to Grange-over-Sands, with its wider choice of shops and restaurants or plan a day trip to Kendal, 14.5 miles away for an even broader selection of outlets.

Step inside to find yourselves in a snug. The utility room, with its washing machine and tumble dryer, and the family shower room are also here. Climb the stairs to discover the rest of your living accommodation. The lounge, with its wood burner and Smart TV, is where you and your family and friends can spend relaxing evenings. Prepare tasty meals in the kitchen, down a few stairs, and enjoy them in the airy dining room. The family bathroom, with spa bath, is also on the first floor, together with a double bedroom, a twin, with two additional pull-out singles, and a single room, with one extra pull-out single. Sit outside in the Cumbrian sunshine during your stay: take in the views and fire up the BBQ on occasion. Parking is on the road, but one permit is provided.

Pack a picnic and head off into the Lake District. Drive 6.5 miles to Lakeside to board a cruise on Lake Windermere. Disembark at Waterhead and stroll or catch a carriage the 0.5 miles into Ambleside. Venture 11.5 miles to Coniston Water, where the energetic among you can embark upon a 14-mile circuit of the lake.

A very cosy cottage in a lovely village. There were six of us staying, and we found it to be very comfortable, warm, and equipped with everything we needed to make family meals. Parking is only 20 yds away opposite the cottage and the village (which has an extraordinary number of eateries and pubs), is a 2 minute walk. Supermarket is about 25 minutRead moree drive, but there's a good local ('Premier') store. Fabulous location for days out and exploring both Lake District and Morecambe Bay area. Hide

We had a lovely 2 night pre Christmas break in The Old Hayloft, which is in a perfect location, very close to Cartmel. The property was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The boot room was a great bonus for all the walking boots and coats. It was very warm and cosy with a nice garden to the rear. We would definitely stay again.

Well equipped & tidy loft cottage, with very easy access to the village, which was a 5 minute walk away. It is a bit like a tardis, much bigger than it looks. Lots of room both inside and outside for chilling after a walk. Parking is a little limited especially now the schools are back, but you can park close by. Cartmel is a hidden gem of a villagRead moree. Lots to explore locally and your 20 minutes or so away from Bowness and the rest of the lakes. Hide

We stayed at the cottage in April 2022 and had a fantastic time. The cottage is lovely, mainly based on the 1st floor and was a great place to stay. The log burner and huge TV is the living room was a cosy place to relax after a long day hiking. The location is fantastic with only a 5 minute walk to the village centre and multiple restaurants and pRead moreubs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again in the future.
