Carree Cottage Reviews
We had a lovely week at Carree Cottage.
The accommodation and facilities were very good, as was the weather!
I am more familiar with the Central and Northern Lakes and this was our first visit to the Lake District Peninsulas. It’s different but equally attractive. Hopefully it won’t be our last – Stephen Hague, Poringland, Norfolk

Cartmel Hill Reviews
The quality of everything was great, you could tell you have taken time to get it all just right.
The house worked really well in terms of the layout. The children loved the games room and thought the keyboard was great.
We absolutely dropped on with the weather but even when it went cooler the summer house was perfect.
I have recommended you to friends and we are also trying to work out plans to return next summer for a longer period.
Many thanks, and we hope to visit again soon. If you ever decide to sell up please let us know, we would move there in a flash! – Lisa Kenrick

Carree Cottage Reviews
Well, what a “blast from the past” this weekend has been!
I had forgotten what a wonderful childhood I had.
Carree cottage and Cark have reminded me of how simple and lovely life used to be. Being able to roam for miles without any traffic to worry about, hardly seeing a soul whilst listening to nature and watching the constantly changing landscape, then coming back home starving, picking up a freshly baked loaf from the local bakery and toasting it on the warm and cosy real fire, spreading it with lashings of real butter and washing it down with a hot mug of tea, there really is nothing finer in my book!
The cottage is quirky and very charming, retaining many of it’s original features whilst still providing all of the modern luxuries you would expect, like a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom (sorry to disappoint but no tin bath in front of the fire!) But it does have very comfortable beds. In fact all the right ingredients to ensure you have a very relaxing stay in a quaint little village that has all the shops and dog friendly pubs you will need.
The Engine Inn serves food, great hand pulled beers and has a big roaring fire creating a lovely atmosphere where everyone is friendly and happy to have a chat. Brilliant!
The Rose and Crown is just a couple of minutes up the road where you can sit out on the terrace with a drink overlooking Morecambe bay.
Whilst in the area a visit to Cartmel is only a 3 minute drive or 20 minute’s walk away where you can browse the eclectic shops before picking up some lovely cheeses and wine to accompany the locally bought bread from the bakery. Oh, and don’t forget the famous sticky toffee pudding too!
If like me you fondly reminisce about how good things used to be, but still like the luxuries of today, then this might just be the place you’re looking for!
Thank you Simon and your brilliant team for delivering yet another memorable holiday!
