Cartmel Valley with its gentle undulating landscape of lush green fields, leafy lanes and rolling hills is a great location from where you can easily access the whole of the Lake District, the Cumbrian coast and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Cartmel Valley also has a milder, drier climate than the rest of the Lake District.

There’s more information about the Cartmel Valley further down the page>>> and you can see details of our lovely cottages in and around Cartmel here:-

The unspoilt medieval village of Cartmel is the oldest and most picturesque village in the South Lakes. Here you’ll find the imposing 12th century priory. Cartmel Priory escaped destruction during the Dissolution of Henry VIII and remains one of the finest ecclesiastical buildings in the north of England.

The ancient village square is home to 2 good pubs and is a lovely place to relax with a drink. There are also a further 2 good pubs in the village and a wealth of lovely boutiques, cafés and artisan food shops.

In the last few years Cartmel has become THE place in Northern England to head for top cuisine. You can read more about the gastro delights of this wonderful village here>>>

Cartmel is a wonderful village and in many people’s opinion has more to offer than any other village in Cumbria. You’d be hard pushed to find such a beautiful small village that isn’t too busy, not at all commercialised and has so many great places to eat drink and buy wonderful local food and drink.

There are dozens of walks in and around Cartmel Valley with the ancient Cistercian Way and Cumbrian Coastal way passing through the and linking up to all major walking routes in the Lake District.

In the south of the valley is Holker Hall, Cumbria’s premier stately house and home to Lord & Lady Cavendish. Hear you can walk around the extensive parklands stocked with herds of deer and rare breed cattle and sheep, visit the stately house and gardens, relax in the ‘courtyard café’ or buy great local produce from the Holker Estate and other great local food in Holker Food Hall.

10 minutes’ drive north from Cark & Cartmel is the nostalgic Haverthwaite to Lakeside Steam Railway which connects you to the awaiting Windermere Lake steamers and cruise boats that travel the full 10 mile length of England’s longest lake, dropping passengers at Waterhead/Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere. The Lakes Aquarium on the shores of Lake Windermere at Lakeside gives you a look at the marine life of Lake Windermere and beyond but you won’t see Bownessie the mysterious Lake Windermere monster here!

Cartmel Valley is part of the Lake District Peninsulas and the southern and western areas of the valley are home to the spectacular Morecambe Bay.

Morecambe Bay remains one of the last wildernesses in England, a sand plain of over 120 square miles that changes twice each day with the ebbing tide which carves the surface into subtly different reliefs each time. It is a mercurial landscape existing in two states, as sea and as sand, while infinite variations of sky and cloud endlessly tint and shade the plains of water and of land.

Its vast expanse of sand, marshes, sand dunes and stunning estuaries are a great place to explore and popular haunt for bird watchers too.

In May, July & August Cartmel Racecourse is the spectacular setting for Cartmel races and a fabulous event for all the family with party crowds, a funfair, country stalls and a typical Lake District laid back atmosphere.

The original ‘steeplechase’ course is the only racecourse in Britain actually located within a village.

Charcoal House Reviews

5 of 5 stars Review on Trip Advisor

We recently stayed at Charcoal house and cannot recommend it highly enough.

We regularly take a cottage break, at least five times a year. Charcoal House is superbly equipped, everything you could hope for in a home from home to provide a truly relaxing break.

The downstairs kitchen, dinner and snug makes an excellent family space and the lounge, upstairs, overlooking the mountains is fantastic and very relaxing, especially with the log burner.

We have stayed in many places that advertise themselves as luxury cottages and the standard at Charcoal House is far superior to any we have stayed in before and excellent value for money. There is even had a Nutri Ninja and were able to enjoy a fantastic range of healthy shakes each morning with brunch.

We could have happily stayed for longer!

Simon was fantastic to deal with and made the booking process very easy. We will definitely look to return to one of his other four or five star properties – Sarah Lennox

Weavers Cottages Reviews

From Email

Weavers Cottage is amazing and a credit to you.

The quality of fixtures and furnishings is first class, the towels and linens were beautifully laundered. It really exceeded our expectations.  The welcome tray was much appreciated too.

We had a wonderful stay and were blessed with beautiful weather.

We have already recommended Weavers cottage to two of our family members.

Many thanks for a wonderful stay – Jan Braycotton

We had a fabulous time.

We had a lovely walk to Shap Abbey on Saturday and it was so lovely to come back to a roaring fire.

The whole family were very impressed with the house and my husband was thrilled with his birthday surprise! Thanks very much – Sara Phillips, Worcestershire
