Great cottage in a lovely village. Like a home from home.

The Engine Inn has great beer and food (the local pub, 2 minutes walk from the cottage). The perfect weekend away. Thank you. – Gary, Julie, Benson, Michael & Becci, Barnoldswick

Hi Simon,

As ever, a wonderful stay.  Our friends who stayed with us had never been to the area before and they loved the cottage and the location. That was our 4th time with you in the Lakes

You really do well with the cottages, they have such a lovely traditional feeling.  Everything always runs like clockwork. Another 10 out of 10 holiday.

Kindest regards

Shona Muir, Alloa, Clackmannanshire

Our second visit to one of Simon’s cottages! Lovely cottage, very well-equipped.

It is nice to have shop and bakery close. A quiet few days for us, dogs loved the walks.

We loved the long walk on the promenade at Grange and love Cartmel. Interesting visit to miniature Lakeland village.

Thanks again Simon! – Toni, Dave & the dogs

Lovely cottage!

The walk to the wind turbine is a great walk. Cartmel is lovely. The Royal Oak is great for young families. We would recommend The Mason Arms for the views. For any National Trust Members – Fell Foot is great.

Bakery in Cark does lovely garlic bread and The Engine Inn has great food.

Lots of greatness! Thank you, Simon. – The Lill Family

Thank you for a perfect welcome! Lights on and milk in the fridge.

We came to Cumbria to ride the Cumbrian heavy horses which was an amazing experience.

The cottage is everything we needed and more. Will recommend to anyone visiting this way many thanks. – Jane, Laura, Rhiannon, Megan & Ellen with Archie the dog, Anglesey

Thank you for a fabulous weekend!

The cottage is lovely and comfortable with everything you need. We went to the races and Tom Jones concert, which was amazing. The walk to Cartmel is very easy and the local pubs are nice. – Lynne, Billy, Becky & Darren, Wigan

We have had a restful holiday in a comfortable cottage and loved the quiet location.

The weather hasn’t been great! The Engine is the better of the two local pubs and the bakery serves good bread and pizzas. – Billy, Louise, Oliver & Erin the dog, Liverpool

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 Review on Trip Advisor

“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

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 Review on Trip Advisor

“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
