Bridgelands Cottage Reviews

5 out of 5 Review on Trip Advisor

“Beautiful Cottage”

We had a lovely five days stay at Bridgelands Cottage. It was the ideal place to have a beautiful restful break.

Very clean and well equipped with everything you need to make it a joy to come back to after a long walk enjoying the lovely scenery.

Our dog loved the freedom of running around in the enclosed garden too.

Would love to come back one day for another enjoyable and peaceful break – Paul

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 star Review on Home Away

“Superb cottage in an outstanding location”

Driving up the lane to the cottage I must say it looked impressive standing out on the hill in the glorious sunshine.

This truly is a peaceful location, the views are spectacular. Internally the cottage is furnished to a very high standard throughout.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. The two main bedrooms have large impressive ensuite bathrooms.

The summer house in the garden is fantastic and again furnished to a very high standard.

Simon provides lots of information about the local area, places to walk and eat.

The beautiful village of Cartmel is about a 20 minute walk once you have found the path through the wood. It has lots of places to eat and drink, our favorite being the Cavendish Arms.

Cartmel Hill cottage is truly a five star accommodation. Communication and customer service provided by Simon was outstanding making our holiday a very memorable one.
Thanks again Simon! we will be back. The Kirk family from Yorkshire

Beautiful stay in the cottage, we struggled to leave!

Highly recommend ‘Fat Flour’ bakery for weekend pizza and breakfast delights – you need to get there early to have the best croissants outside France!
