Stunning, luxury cottage on the outskirts of Cartmel with an amazing rural location, picturesque views and an inviting hot tub.

Sitting on the outskirts of the picture-perfect village of Cartmel, this lovely 17th-century cottage boasts beautiful views across the fells and is awash with gorgeous period features. Sleeping six people across three bedrooms, it’s the ideal rural bolthole for families or groups of friends who want to spend their days hiking the rolling hills or exploring the village’s Norman priory, and their evenings making friends in the local pub or taking a well-earned soak in the cottage’s private hot tub.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a beautifully-designed cottage where characterful period features blend effortlessly with the contemporary decor. Head through to the chic kitchen and rustle up a spot of dinner for your loved ones. Gather the whole gang together in the dining area to eat. Alternatively, head outside, fire up the BBQ and enjoy an al fresco dinner while you take in the views of Hampsfell. After dinner, treat yourself to a dip in the private hot tub, or head inside to slip onto a sofa by the wood burner to relax in front of your favourite TV show. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find three lovely bedrooms upstairs.

With its magnificent 800-year-old priory, renowned Michelin-starred restaurant and one of the country’s most beautiful racecourses, Cartmel is a pleasure to explore. Wander the quaint cobbled streets, catch a meet at the racecourse and stop off to sample the village’s famous sticky toffee pudding. If you want to stretch your legs, you can walk over the fells to Grange-over-Sands (3.5 miles). There, you can check out the Edwardian architecture, spot waterbirds at the lake in the ornamental gardens or take a refreshing walk along the promenade. Alternatively, head to Lakeside Pier in Newby Bridge (4.5 miles) and enjoy a cruise on Lake Windermere.

Really lovely cottage, gorgeous, comfortable interior and super quiet. We had a really relaxing stay. The walk into Cartmel is about 20 mins along the road, a really gorgeous village with restaurants and pubs. We would absolutely recommend!

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
