This charming stone-built cottage is the perfect rural retreat for couples or small families looking to escape the hustle and bustle. Located in the picturesque and tranquil village of Cartmel, and with some fabulous countryside walks on the doorstep, it can accommodate up to four people. Local pubs are within walking distance and the shores of stunning Lake Windermere are just a few miles away.
Full of character and charm, this traditional property offers comfort and a home-from-home feel. Whether you’re watching a film or simply chatting into the early hours, the delightful lounge – with its oak beams, garden view and wood burner – is a lovely space to unwind and enjoy some quality time together. The traditional dining room leads into an attractive and well-equipped kitchen which is perfect for making a hearty breakfast or evening snack. Relax in the inviting bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, where you’ll be drifting off into a peaceful sleep in no time. The delightful garden consists of paved, terraced and lawned areas which are perfect for firing up the BBQ and enjoying a few al fresco drinks. Clogger Beck also runs alongside the property, where you might spot ducks, water voles and the occasional brown trout.
Easy walks and cycles lead from the cottage through the nearby Holker Estate, or you can go up onto Hampsfell (2 miles) which enjoys magnificent panoramic views of the bay and Cumbrian Mountains. Hop onboard a pleasure cruise or try out a new water sport at Lake Windermere (7 miles) or enjoy a day on the coast at the pretty Grange-over-Sands, 2.5 miles away. Foodie heaven awaits in Cartmel itself, which is home to the sticky toffee pudding. For savoury treats, there are some superb pubs and restaurants to be found here as well.
