A contemporary and stylish cottage set within the village of Cartmel – the perfect property for a group of friends or family looking to explore this scenic region.

Sitting right next door to the beautiful 12th-century Cartmel Priory, this cottage in the picture-postcard village of Cartmel is adorned with charming period features throughout. Sleeping seven people over four bedrooms, this property is both historic in character and contemporary in style. It’s the perfect accommodation option for large families or groups of friends who want to spend their days strolling by the picturesque River Eea, and their nights catching up with their loved ones over a glass of wine by the cottage’s glowing wood burner.

Step inside this spacious cottage and you’ll be immediately struck by the building’s original beams and period features. Make yourself at home by the inglenook fireplace in the elegant lounge before heading through to the traditional Lakeland kitchen to cook up a storm for you loved ones. Gather the whole gang together around the oak and marble table in the dining room for a dinner to remember, and then retire to the lounge to warm your toes by the wood burner and catch up on all the latest gossip. When the day is done, you’ll find four lovely bedrooms upstairs, including an impressive master with a vaulted ceiling with ancient wood beams.

Just next door you’ll find the stunning Cartmel Priory, which was built by Augustinian canons between 1190 and 1220. A large part of the priory was destroyed at the Dissolution of the Monasteries, but a lovely parish church remains. Take a look at the massive arches of the nave and the fine Renaissance screens before taking a stroll to check out the village’s lively foodie scene. Treat yourself to some Lakeland lamb, sample the local shrimps or get stuck into a bowl of Cartmel’s famous sticky toffee pudding.

Fantastic location right in the centre of Cartmel. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was very chilly when we first arrived (not unexpected in the middle of march) but we took logs for the log burner and the cottage soon warmed up. We didnt need to use the twin bed room at the top of the cottage and this was lucky as it was the coldeRead morest by far and doesnt have a door between the bedroom and the stairs/rest of the house. Overall a great place and wed stay again! Hide

We had a nice weekend stay in Cartmel. Enjoyed walks from the door. We ate in the Royal Oak pub, highly recommend. The Cottage is in the centre of the village. I was aware central heating not switched on for arrival at 4pm. Unfortunately being March when we stayed the place was absolutely freezing. Took a good 24 hours to warm up. Please take wood/Read morematches for the wood burner if you are staying in the winter. It is as described in advert but means I would not stay again except in summer. Hide

Perfect location although be aware that there is no parking at the cottage. We parked outside the school which was free. The log burner is a nice touch but you need to bring logs (or get them from the local shop) as they are not provided. If staying in the winter, be aware that there is no form of heating in the attic room and therefore too cold toRead more stay in it. The property was advertised as having a TV in the attic room but it doesn't have one. Hide

Our family had a pleasant cosy stay at the cottage. Cartmel is a lovely location. No set parking tho, the opposite cottage took the 2 possible spaces near the cottage. There are time restrictions on the roads locally. We payed 35 for the week at the local race course. A few cleaning aspects and freshen up would improve the cottage.
