“First Class”

Cartmel Hill can be summed up in three words – Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic.

Fantastic Accommodation – High wow factor. Furnishings and decoration clearly chosen with care.

Stunning beams and stone work.

Well appointed, kitchen with views from the sink – highlight for me!

Welcoming, relaxing ambience. Cosy and homely despite its vast size.

Fantastic Location – Idyllic, peaceful but with easy access to M6 and A 590 and all that this road has to offer.

Superb views, walks or just looking out from the windows of the house watching the sheep graze up and down the field adjoining the garden.

Fantastic Vacation – loved every minute.

Cartmel village is a stunner! A wealth of riches here.

Cartmel Village shop – in there every day.

Coffee shops, gourmet dining restaurants, plus three very good, friendly pubs.

Cheese shop – not to be missed.

Cartmel Priory is fascinating, and well worth a visit.

Thank you Simon for once again providing us with the vital pause button in our busy lives.

What a wonderful stay, beautiful house and stunning views!

Enjoyed every minute here, we enjoyed some beautiful meals in the village also had a wonderful time with our two grandchildren Mason and Morgan at the South Lakes Safari Zoo (well worth a visit if you have children).

Had two very lovely sunny days and took advantage of the beautiful summer house.

Thank you once again Simon. Look forward to the next house – The Sandilands family

“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

Our first stay in this fabulous house – it won’t be our last!

Next time we will stay longer though. Immaculately finished and spotlessly clean.

A perfect home from home. Thank you – The Clements, Dorset

“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

Our second visit to this stunning house and it seemed even better this time!

The weather helped, after the floods recently we were blessed with sunshine, very cold, but the views from any room in this house are just beautiful!

Walked to Cark and back home circular day one. Drove to Grizedale Forest (about half an hour) on day two and took the train from Cark to Arnside – only 15 mins and the view from the Knot is breathtaking.

Sad to be leaving but already booked into another of Simon’s cottages in two weeks.

Thanks Simon – Shona, Gray with Dusty the dog

“Beautiful house in a great setting”

Great place to stay for touring south Cumbria. The house is very large and plenty of bathrooms to use. Good parking for a number of cars.

I would certainly not hesitate to stay at this house again at any time of year as the views are fantastic from every lounge window – Kevin Lace

Sawmill Cottage Reviews

From Email

An outstanding week,  definitely helped by the weather.

The cottage is excellent for us as a family. I suspect you’re going to pick up a lot of repeat business for Sawmill Cottage 😊

We’ll be back again!
