Sky Diving over Morecambe Bay

12th July 2018

Great photo of Morecambe Bay and the Leven Estuary taken by our RAF sky diving guests that stayed at Bridgelands Cottage last weekend.

They stayed at Bridgelands Cottage whilst attending a sky dive formation competition at nearby Flookburgh airfield.

It looks like the tide was just coming into the bay as it heads towards Flookburgh, Cark in Cartmel and the river Leven.

To the right you can see the viaduct on the Manchester to Barrow railway as it crosses over the river Leven.

At the bottom of the image, you can just see the shoreline of the bay at Cark in Cartmel.

At the top of the picture you see the outskirts of the lovely south Lake District market town of Ulverston.

The 2 RAF sky diving teams came 2nd and third. Well done lads!

“Lovely cottage in a lovely village”

Lovely 4 bed cottage in pretty Cartmel.  Well equipped and spotless.

Comfy beds, modern bathrooms and plenty of parking space. A great base for Cartmel and the south lakes.

A short walk into Cartmel with its amazing Priory and charming racecourse. Plenty of places to eat and drink in the village. We enjoyed the Priory Hotel for simple quality food and The Cavendish for something a bit more adventurous. We will be back – Charles

5 Star Review on Trip Advisor

“Lovely Cottage in a Perfect Location”

Stayed at Sawmill Cottage last week for a family reunion and we all loved it.

Great having the four en-suite bedrooms which are all a good size and nice big showers too, not to mention the beds which were soooo comfy.

The cottage is nice and spacious so eight of us didn’t feel crowded at all. It has recently been refurbished so has nice modern appliances and fittings yet manages to keep its old cottage feeling Lovely patio/garden area with a bench perfect for relaxing and looking out for the dippers and wagtails sitting on the rocks in the river.

Simon was extremely helpful, always quickly responding to any queries that we had.

We would definitely stay here again but my only concern about giving it a glowing review is that it’s going to be fully booked up and we may not be able to get in ? – John Mason, Lichfield Staffordshire
