Stylish property but the very poor maintenance/cleaning regime turned the holiday into a nightmare. Garden is overgrown, some ceiling paintwork is peeling each night onto ones clothes, many more instances of poor cleaning. What a lovely and what great potential this property has but it is spoiled by the cleanliness, especially important at this timRead moree of Covid. We did not feel safe. Beware! Hide

Cartmel is a fantastic village to have as a base and the cottage is in easy walking distance to nice pubs. The Hayloft space worked well for our family holiday for three adults and two kids.

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.
