We have 4 cottages in and around Cartmel village, all of which have easy access to the races.

We are proud to rent out Weavers Cottage in Cartmel. This gorgeous 4 bedroomed cottage sleeps up to 8 people and is located on the edge of the village just  few minutes short, flat walk to the racecourse-via the village square for a drink or too!

Car access to Weavers Cottage on race days is not restricted or hampered by the huge crowds that travel from all over the country to this great event. The location of the cottage is also far enough away from the racecourse to avoid the sound of the cheering crowds and the funfair. Click here to see Weavers Cottage

We also have 2 luxury holiday cottages in Cark-in-Cartmel that are peacefully located away from the crowds that swell Cartmel on race days.  These 2 cottage are just a 20 minute walk through the woods to the racecourse. Alternatively, you can jump on the regular shuttle bus that does the 5 minute journey between the 2 villages.

We also have another cottage in Allithwaite which is also just a mile away from Cartmel.

Rose Farm Reviews

From email

We had a wonderful weekend at Rose Farm. The house was great, really comfortable and the views were fantastic.

We had some amazing walks which the dogs really loved. This was a part of the Lake District that we haven’t visited before but somewhere we’d certainly come back to – Leslie Dowie, Glencarse, Scotland

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 stars Reviewed Trip Advisor

“Stunning House”

This is a stunning house in a wonderful location with amazing views.

The house itself is warm and welcoming with beautiful furnishings and everything you could want for a home from home stay.

The fact that you can bring a pet dog is an added bonus and the reason we initially chose it. We are so very pleased we did, and can’t wait to return – Dee Chadwick

Carree Cottage Reviews

Just a quick email to say thank you for the warm welcome feeling on entering the cottage, the lamps being on and the knowledge of being able to have a cuppa was really nice.

We enjoyed our stay very much, my daughter was especially happy which is a big plus as sadly she has health problems and OCD which plays a factor in this, so for her to be so relaxed and content was a big plus.

My son had stayed in 1 of your cottages last year so we booked on his recommendation and are glad we did.

Hopefully in the future we can make a second visit.

Thank you and a big thank you to the person who cleans the cottage as well – Anna McGlynn, Brighouse, West Yorkshire
