Great location and accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for a couple. And good location for exploring the Lake District but a nice quiet village for end of day. Comfy bed and updated cottage makes this a great stay.

Lovely, well-appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Nest; it's very comfortable for two people. We especially appreciated the very comfy bed and the elegant bathroom. Harriet had flowers and goodies waiting for us upon arrival, which was such a nice welcome. And Cartmel is lovely. We'd love to come again!

Wonderful, cosy Cartmel cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay at The Nest.

The cottage is perfect for a getaway for a few days - cute, cosy, immaculately presented and in a great location – just a couple of minutes’ walk to Cartmel’s pubs and restaurants. Bed very comfortable, good shower. Checking in and out is easy and Harriet responded very quickly to enquiries.

We will definitely be back.

Cosy and comfortable little retreat

  • 5 of 5

A little end cottage, one up one down with a lovely airy open feel. Wood burner if you need it but the heating is quick and responsive. Nice bathroom and really lovely bed and bedding. Everything has been very nicely done and the Prosecco, flowers and mince pies were a real treat when we arrived in the cold and the dark. Kitchen modern and well appointed. Car parking a bonus. Owners close and very responsive.

Great cottage ina lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved The Nest! Although only 1 bedroom it was big enough not to feel small and it was beautifully furnished with everything we needed with a few nice extras left for us by the owner. It was about 5 minutes walk into the centre village so near enough but not too close (make sure you take the torch supplied out at night - there are no street lights but this adds to the romance of the place!) Cartmel is a beautiful village and we will certainly return.

About Harriet Morris

Having always loved the outdoors and everything the beautiful Lake District has to offer, we fell in love and chose Cartmel for a number of reasons. It really is a picture postcard English village and this 'thimble full of diamonds' whilst still steeped in history has become a fantastic foodie destination and whilst a great destination in its own right is superbly placed for exploring all of a The Lakes. Then there are the race days on what has been described as the prettiest racetrack in the UK. When we first stumbled on Maggie Puddle, we instantly fell in love with it. Two cute, cosy cottages that have been sympathetically restored and we hope you agree offer a real 'home from home.' We live locally and are on hand for any questions you may have at any point during your stay.
