Carree Cottage is a luxury 4 Star ‘Gold Award’ cottage that is full of charm and character.

The cottage had a major refurbishment in 2015 including a new luxury kitchen, new furniture and appliances and this was rewarded by the tourist board, Visit England awarding Carree Cottage a coverted ‘Gold Award’ in February 2016.

The cottage is beautifully presented with every convenience, lots of thoughtful extras and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

Carree Cottage is located in a very peaceful setting in the South Lakeland village of Cark in Cartmel, Cumbria and is situated away from any roads yet only a minutes’ walk to the centre of the village and the 2 village pubs-both of which serve good food.

Converted from a 19th Century barn by a local craftsman, Carree Cottage has thick stone walls, a large inglenook fireplace, with many original features, oak beams, and is beautifully furnished using a mixture of stylish new and antique furniture. The cottage has every modern convenience you would expect and need in a luxury Lakeland cottage, and lots of ‘thoughtful extras’ too.

The lounge has a large bay window which lets the sunlight flood in, a large sofa, 2 matching arm chairs, multi channel (Freeview) LCD TV, DVD, i Phone/ipod docking station, CD player & DAB radio and some good old fashioned board games and plenty of books too. The large inglenook fireplace is the focal point of the lounge. A lovely way to relax at the end of the day.

The fully equipped kitchen is kitted out to a very high standard with many German appliances and has a new built-in double oven, halogen/ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, automatic washing machine, Bosch dishwasher, tumble drier, microwave and everything you’d expect to have in a luxury cottage plus maybe a bit more too. Mains gas central heating is at your control for whenever you want to use it and there is a combi-boiler for instant hot water. Heating, gas, and electric are all included in the price.

The dining area has a large antique pine table with 6 chairs, crockery, glasses and cutlery for 6 people too.

The 3 bedrooms sleep 6 people comfortably. The main double bedroom is very elegantly and luxuriously furnished with a stylish new Laura Ashley bed, a dressing table with plenty of drawer space, bedside table with more drawers, stool, built in cottage style wardrobe, a deep window seat and more oak beams. The twin bedded room overlooking the garden and fields also has a new dressing table with plenty of drawer space, new bedside table with more drawers, stool, and again a built in wardrobe. The 3rd bedroom which also overlooks the garden has 2 single beds arranged as bunk beds, a new large chest of drawers, a stair gate, full size travel cot and another built in wardrobe too. The cottage also has a high chair, provided free of charge. Luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen and soft fluffy white towels provided free of charge.

Carree Cottage has recently had a complete new bathroom fitted. This contemporary luxury bathroom is fully tiled and boasts a powerful thermostatic shower with variable height head, a new bath, wash basin & toilet, a stylish chrome heated towel rail, recessed LED lighting and lots of luxury bathroom fittings.

Outside, to the rear, the cottage has its own lovely, totally enclosed, private cottage style garden overlooking open fields with a variety of plants, shrubs and wild flowers, a patio area, garden table & chairs, and barbecue. The cottage also has its own garage for the sole use of guests.

All of our holiday cottages are provided with lots of information on the local area, the Lake District and Cumbria with several books, folders and leaflets containing plenty of walks and our own personal recommendations for places to visit. We also send all of our guests a detailed list of our favourite pubs, restaurants and places to buy great local food giving you some wonderful inside knowledge and a valuable head start.

Dog owners are welcome to bring along their dog(s) for a small charge (£20 for 1 dog, £30 for 2)-just select this option on our on-line booking system at the time of booking. Non pet owners can rest assured that we spend this extra money on additional cleaning so that non pet owners would have no idea a dog has stayed at the cottage.

This is a great area for walkers and dog owners with several walks from the doorstep where your dog can enjoy it’s holiday as much as you.

Further details on our beautiful area can be found here.

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

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!

We’ve had a wonderful weekend away here. The cottage is so homely, warm and cosy.

Pizza from the Fat Flour Artisan bakery was amazing and Cliffhanger Escape Rooms in Lakeland Village is so much fun.

Will definitely be staying again – Becky, Tom and Lunar, Grimsby
