This stylish and historic listed property is located in the beautiful village of Cartmel which offers a choice of highly-acclaimed restaurants, food shops and pubs, a short drive from Lake Windermere.
Arrange a romantic break with a difference when you decide to stay at this former gaol at Cartmel, close to the southern fringes of the Lake District. Set right at the heart of the desirable village, some 5 miles from Lake Windermere, this bijou, one-bedroom retreat has been carefully converted to offer comfort and style. Head out to explore the scenic Lake District or to reach the coast at Grange-over-Sands, 2.5 miles away. Enjoy wandering the pretty streets of Cartmel and dining out at renowned restaurants within the village.
Open the door of this former lock-up, where wrong-doers were once temporarily housed, to discover a space, with a fridge, where you can make tea and coffee, and a cupboard for your shoes, jackets and walking gear. A modern wet room, with under-floor heating, is also on the ground floor. Make your way up the narrow stairs within this historic building to the inviting bedroom, with its four poster, double bed. Watch the Smart TV, which comes with a sound bar, there at the end of each exciting day. Sit outside in the courtyard with a glass of wine on balmy evenings. Find you have access to a shared utility room, with washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also space here for bicycles. This individual holiday home comes with a parking permit for one car.
Wander round Cartmel and pause to see the 12th-century priory and its gatehouse, which is now a heritage centre. Drive 6 miles to Newby Bridge in the Lake District to catch a steam train along the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. Take in the magnificent scenery on your journey or catch a boat the length of Lake Windermere to Waterhead. Take a ferry from Lakeside Pier over to the National Trust’s garden at Fell Foot.
Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
