Carree Cottage, Cark in Cartmel


UPDATE – 14th January 2021

It looks like we’ve suffered a casualty due to loss of income caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Sadly Carree Cottage has been sold (subject to status). If this changes I’ll let you know.

Currently Carree Cottage will cease being rented out on the 1st of April. If you want to stay before then, we will still refund you if you are unable to travel due to UK Covid travel restrictions. Only bookings from people with legal exemptions from the lockdown will be permitted to stay during lockdown.

If you liked Carree Cottage, my recommendation is to book Bridgelands Cottage. Bridgelands is located in the same quiet, off-road village location but has 2 off-road parking spaces, something that was a problem at Carree. To see Bridgelands Cottage, click here>>>


Carree Cottage

Carree Cottage is a luxury 19th century cottage that is full of charm and character and is peacefully located off-road but only 1 minutes’ walk to the centre of Cark in Cartmel village.

This lovely cottage is beautifully presented with everything you’ll need for your holiday and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

Carree Cottage is located in a lovely tranquil setting in the South Lakeland village of Cark in Cartmel, Cumbria. The cottage is situated away from any roads yet only a minutes’ walk to the centre of the village, the 2 village pubs and the local convenience store.

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

The cottage also has its own garage for the sole use of guests.

The Enclosed Garden

Carree Cottage has recently had a complete new bathroom fitted. This contemporary luxury bathroom is fully tiled and boasts a powerful shower, a new bath, wash basin, toilet, heated towel rail and recessed LED lighting.

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.
