Great central location only a short walk into the village and we were able to park outside the property using the permit provided. The cottage itself is cosy but there were a few niggles. The TV:DVD is outdated meaning we had to purchase our own DVD player whilst there.

A lovely cottage in an excellent location. Lounge, kitchen & bathroom had plenty of room for a 2, plus a big Labrador. Contrary to the previous review, the memory foam mattress wasn't to our liking. A few items could do with attention to bring the standard to that reflected by the price.

A great location in a lovely village next to the Priory. A good choice of different places to eat and drink plus a variety of interesting shops.

Fantastic location with only one minute walk to everything in Cartmel. Very well equipped kitchen, contemporary bathroom with heated floor. Seeing the sheep in the field from the bedroom was great. Dog friendly - our Cocker Spaniel loved it. Outside space was really good, secluded but useable when the weather permits!

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.

To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
