Thank you for a lovely stay in this beautiful holiday home!
It is not only comfortable and accommodating but also impeccably clean. Cartmel is a very sweet little village with some nice restaurants and gift shops.
Our favourite place for food in the area was the Priory Hotel for sandwiches made with delicious Hazelmere bread. We have also visited Grange-Over-Sands, Ulverston and we took the train and ferry over to Bowness. Ollie loved all the lovely country walks too!
Thanks again – Barbara, Ron, Chloe, Katie, Chris, Sophie & Ollie, Gateshead

“Idyllic house in a beautiful and peaceful location”
This house sits high upon a hill with wonderful views across to Grange-over-Sands. There does not appear to have been any expense spared in the quality of the fixtures and fittings.
The kitchen was very well equipped with every utensil you could ask for and cooking a meal was not a chore as you have a huge space in which to work and a lovely view from the kitchen window. If I had this kitchen at home I would probably do a lot more cooking.
Outside is a marvelous summer house in which we spent some of our evenings playing board games – and there is no need to go back into the house to obtain a second bottle of wine as the summer house is equipped with a fridge!
We particularly liked the ‘upside down’ aspect of the house – the lounge, dining room and kitchen are on the 1st floor, thereby ensuring you have the best views of the surrounding countryside.
The house is full of character and the layout is very interesting – it has 2 staircases and I have to admit to almost getting lost within the first 5 minutes of arrival! There is a second small sitting room on the ground floor so that anyone can have some quiet time if they wish.
Cartmel itself is a lovely little village and I would recommend a visit to the Priory. We ate at the Pig and Whistle and the Cavendish Arms. Both served good quality food, but I would say the Cavendish has the edge.
This is a great location for exploring the Lake District and is within very easy driving distance of the South Lakes. One slight word of warning – do be careful on the narrow roads approaching the house. We were fortunate enough not to have to pass anyone as the roads are extremely quiet, however, I would advise driving slowly especially near the bends.
Simon, the owner, responded promptly to my queries and provided information about the local amenities in the surrounding areas prior to our visit.
If you choose to book this house for your holiday I cannot imagine that you would be disappointed. I rarely write reviews but I was so impressed with this house and I would highly recommend it to anyone – Jane Senior

“Superb cottage in an outstanding location”
Driving up the lane to the cottage I must say it looked impressive standing out on the hill in the glorious sunshine.
This truly is a peaceful location, the views are spectacular. Internally the cottage is furnished to a very high standard throughout.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. The two main bedrooms have large impressive ensuite bathrooms.
The summer house in the garden is fantastic and again furnished to a very high standard.
Simon provides lots of information about the local area, places to walk and eat.
The beautiful village of Cartmel is about a 20 minute walk once you have found the path through the wood. It has lots of places to eat and drink, our favorite being the Cavendish Arms.
Cartmel Hill cottage is truly a five star accommodation. Communication and customer service provided by Simon was outstanding making our holiday a very memorable one.
Thanks again Simon! we will be back. The Kirk family from Yorkshire

Thank you all once again for another brilliant break at this fabulous house.
Once again we loved every minute. Joined this time by our son John, wife Lyn and daughter Isla who all were also wowed by it. Action packed few days!
Good meal at The Cavendish and civilised afternoon tea at Gillams Tearooms in Ulverston amongst many highlights.
Thank you Simon for the walks ‘second to none’ – Amelia, Robby & family, Glasgow
We have had a fantastic stay in this beautiful house. It has been the perfect place to celebrate Jim’s 70th birthday!
It is so well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The views are spectacular and location brilliant – what more could you ask for from a holiday cottage?

“Beautiful cottage, perfect location”
We have just returned from a week in Cartmel, staying at Weavers Cottage.
What a delightful cottage this is, you feel at home as soon as you enter the beautiful dining kitchen which is full of high end appliances and leads to the spacious conservatory dining area and sunny outside seating area.
The cottage was immaculately clean and the beds lovely and comfortable.
It is in a ideal location, being only a few minutes walk from the racecourse and the centre of Cartmel with its many pubs and cafes.
There are many lovely walks that can be done from the cottage but if you prefer to travel further afield Cartmel is also a perfect location for exploring the beautiful Lake District.
We would not hesitate to return – Gill Ellison

We have just spent the last seven days in this delightful cottage.
From the moment we arrived all six of us fell in love with it and by the end of the stay I was imagining myself living there on a permanent basis.
The open plan kitchen was a dream and all the appliances and crockery were of a high standard.
There was no fighting for the best bedroom as each one was as beautiful as the next.
The location was great as there were so many places we found to explore, on foot and by car.
We had been advised that the mobile phone coverage was poor but Vodafone coverage in the cottage was strong and no complaints at all from anyone on the wifi which worked 100% of the time.
We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough and I must say dealing with Simon has been an absolute pleasure. His one aim was ensure we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Charcoal Cottage, thank you Simon – Jan Muir, Hampshire
