Thanks for a lovely week in a lovely cottage.

The weather has been very kind to us. Lots to do and see in the area, we especially enjoyed the vintage ice cream parlour which was a great day out for us all. – C Joy & Family, Stockton-on-Tees

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

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!

Lynne, Rob, Catherine and Sonny
