Built some 200 years ago, this charming cottage has been beautifully refurbished to offer home from home accommodation in the heart of the Lake District.

Built some 200 years ago, this charming cottage has been beautifully refurbished to create a rural retreat in the popular village of Cartmel. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms, along with two loveable hounds, this peaceful home is perfectly suited for couples or small families. There are some wonderful woodland and mountain walks on the doorstep, while the private hot tub is the perfect place to soothe tired muscles at the end of the day.

Just a short walk from the village square, this property beautifully combines traditional features with contemporary styling. A large hall steps down into the welcoming living areas and the lounge, which is a cosy and restful space. Exposed beams, sofas and a roaring wood burner make this a lovely spot to unwind with a glass of wine. Wandering through into the dining area, you’ll find a bright and welcoming space with natural light flooding in. The open-plan style continues into the chic kitchen, which is equipped with everything you need, while a door leads out into the walled garden. Upstairs there are two comfortable king-size bedrooms which are both tastefully decorated with antique furnishings and pretty designs. The stylish bathroom is also on this floor. Step outside and have your morning coffee on the small terrace to the front of the property, or the walled garden to the rear, which also boasts a relaxing hot tub.

Cross the small iron bridge outside, to the opposite side of the river, and enjoy a picnic on the private riverbank. Cartmel is a foodie’s paradise with some great places to eat, as well as the chance to try its famous sticky toffee pudding. Stroll around Eggerslack Woods (3 miles) or put your feet up and hop on a cruise across Lake Windermere (6 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The cottage is absolutely lovely. It felt like a home away from home, with everything you needed to be comfortable. It was a welcome change from other rental cottages that often feel a bit soulless.

Wheelhouse Cottage ticked every box for us. A lovely interior, clean and all amenities in excellent condition - we had a very cosy week even though the weather was awful. Being detached, our 2 year old was able to make as much noise as he wanted to and the enclosed garden meant our dog was safe and away from any sheep. The hot tub was also a bonus!Read more 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.
