        “2nd visit and we will be back”

        A really excellent holiday house. Loads of old style character but with modern luxury comforts.

        We had a discussion about what if anything could be improved and decided the only thing was the dribbly tea pot. On second thoughts though we loved that too! – Jude

        “Perfect Escape”

        Just got home from a 4 night stay in this beautiful cottage. Never written a review on trip advisor before but had to with this place as it was truly beautiful.

        We’ve already been recommending to friends and family as a perfect base for visiting the rest of the lakes.

        The cottage, and in particular the kitchen, were really well equipped which was great because I love cooking.

        Also got to mention local bakery, Fat Flour, delicious! We made several visits!

        We had our 7 month old cockapoo Walter with us too who spent many an hour snuggled up in front of the log fire, after long days spent exploring during our walks. The walk to Cartmel through the woods – approx 2 miles either way – and a day spent at Haverigg beach I think were his personal highlights during our stay. Thank you for an amazing visit – Amy Newton, Nantwich, Cheshire

        “High end property with great views”

        Cartmel Hill is a spacious property with a beautiful view towards Morecambe bay capturing the sunset.

        We found the house to be warm spacious and well equipped and the location great, just a 15 minute walk into the village.

        Would love to return in spring/summer to make use of the wonderful summerhouse and for bird watching.

        There are great walks from the doorstep, an OS map enables you to make up your own walks! Thanks to Simon and the team – Frank & Wendy Hayes, Chorley, Lancashire
