Our first family holiday to the Lake District was wonderful and Old Bank House was the perfect base. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us and we would happily return. The house is presented to a high standard, beds and seating areas were very comfortable and the bath salts provided were a lovely little extra! We could not fault the location.

Perfect location, lovely outsize space. But no parking permit which was very awkward for 3 couples not to mention expensive. The need to renew the ticket every morning was quite inconvenient and I know most properties in Cartmel provide a parking pass. For this reason only I would not recommend this property,

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.
