Attractive cottage sleeping two guests, a period property given a stylish contemporary update to create a relaxing retreat just one mile outside the medieval village of Cartmel.

This gorgeous retreat for two oozes character and charm, and is located in a peaceful, rural location. The foodie haven village of Cartmel is just 1 mile away, while there are ample walks and trails to explore on the doorstep, ensuring you can travel as much or as little as you like. Two canines are welcome to join you too, so the whole family can enjoy a well-earned break.

Enjoying a tranquil setting, this delightful one-bedroom period property is full of traditional features which have been given a contemporary update. The open-plan living space on the ground floor is colourful and has been finished with artistic touches. The warming wood burner adds to the cosiness of the lounge area, which is a welcome spot to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. The breakfast bar provides an informal spot to enjoy a snack, while the modern kitchen is stylish and well-equipped for your daily needs. Head upstairs and drift off into a peaceful sleep in the cosy bedroom, before waking up to those spectacular countryside views from your bed. The shower room is also to be found on this level. A patio door from the kitchen leads into the enclosed patio garden, where you’ll also find a pretty summer house, which is a lovely spot to relax.

The property overlooks Cartmel Race Course and is 1 mile from the shops and local pubs. Don’t miss the chance to try the sticky toffee pudding that has put Cartmel on the map (1 mile) before exploring the area’s 12th-century Norman priory. Take a boat ride across Lake Windermere (6.5 miles) or try out one of the water sports on offer there. If you’re staying on dry land, follow one of the walks around its famous shores.

We booked this cottage as we were visiting L'enclume and wanted to stay nearby - location was perfect (a few minutes walk into the village), lovely views, cottage was really well equipped and very homely and we had a fab stay. Visiting the lakes - everywhere is a drive from Cartmel but it is so beautiful we loved it! Would really recommend!

It is also about 20 mins from the base of Windermere and 50 mins from the top, so a good location to explore as well. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
