Hi Simon,

We would both like to thank you for all your help whilst we were at Cartmel Hill. We could not fault your service and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is one of the only properties that we have stayed in that felt so homely and comfortable.

None of us had had a break at all during the year and it was very much a last minute decision to look for something. I am so glad that timing was on our side when I found the property. We were so sad to leave after a wonderful much needed week away.

I am going to spend the weekend trying to talk the family into an early return booking and not throw caution to the wind.

Once again thank you from us all and I really hope to be contacting you in the very near future as would love to come back.

Kind Regards

Elaine & Mark, &  also Natalie & Josh & Alex ( and Cassie the Cairn)

“Amazing house!”

We can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed Cartmel Hill. The house is beautiful, even nicer than expected, so spacious.

Lots of room for our group of 7, so nice to have so many bathrooms and living space to spread out when we wanted.

The summer house is awesome, what a wonderful place to have a glass of wine and play some games at night.

Cartmel village is wonderful, so many friendly people and great shops and restaurants. We loved taking the public footpaths through the forest to get to the village.

We also enjoyed exploring the footpaths up the hill from the house – what views!!

Simon is a great host and the house was easy to find thanks to his directions.

We hope to come back to Cartmel one day and wouldn’t hesitate to book Cartmel Hill again. Thanks Simon! – Gillian, Prince George, Canada

We booked this cottage for a large group who were going to run a trail race from Cartmel racecourse. Location was ideal, about 1 mile from Cartmel village.

The cottage is superb and more than lives up to the website description and photos. The rooms were plush and beds comfortable. Bathrooms spacious, and a kitchen to die for. No expense has been spared in either furniture or fittings. The lounge was comfy, we all fought over the swivel chair.

Didn’t use the summerhouse but it would be fab on a better weekend. The garden and views from it were fantastic.

Probably not the cheapest around but definitely one of the best. We will definitely try to rebook – Ian Rayner, Leeds

Hi Simon

We all had a fabulous time and were all wishing we were all still there now.

When you’re sat in that beautiful cottage with the peace and quiet of those beautiful views it was so relaxing.

We have now stayed in two of your lovely cottages Simon and can’t wait to return. We have already passed your details on to some friends who’ve requested them. We all loved it, thank you.

Our favourite place to eat was the Cavendish Arms. We couldn’t fault the service and food.  The atmosphere was just lovely.

The hot mulled wine and espresso martinis in Cartmel Wine bar were delicious too!

Take care Simon and many thanks

“Lovely spacious house”

Cartmel Hill is a lovely house in a good location with a great view of the valley and bay.

The house was clean and warm and just as shown in the photographs with plenty of space, a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds.

The summerhouse is a great feature, allowing us to benefit from sitting outdoors at a time of year when it may not otherwise have been so appealing.

Simon provided all the information that we could need to make the most of our stay and we are already looking forward to another holiday at the house, hopefully in the not-too-distant future – Guy Bellini
