    We absolutely LOVED our stay at Kathryn's Cottage; the perfect base for fell walks and exploring the Southern Lakes. The facilities were amazing and the owner couldn't have been more helpful amd kind. Cartmel is such a beautiful little place too...sadly we're home now and back to reality with a bump. I wish I were back, listening to the sheep and pRead moreriory bells again through the bedroom window! Hide

    The layout of the property was excellent and used the space well. The location was also perfect. Especially being a stones throw from the Pig and Whistle Pub. I would recommend this property for a short stay in the beautiful village of Cartmel.

    Absolutely loved our stay here. Great location and very good standard of accommodation. WiFi was a bit sketchy but thats maybe due to location I would imagine, but as a 5 star location maybe looking for slightly better, or possibly compensated by a better TV package ?? Overall, outstanding cottage and would thoroughly recommend !!

    My husband and I spent two nights in the cottage, we are regular visitors to Cartmel. The Cottage is very tastefully furnished in a good location a couple of minutes from the main square in Cartmel. We eat in Rogans (which is a favourite of ours ) and the Cavendish and had fab meals and lovely walks :) a great weekend.

    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.
