Really enjoyed our stay here! Would definitely come back again! Only one very minor problem, the tv downstairs is broken so can’t be used! Other than that all was perfect!

Owner's Response: Oh dear sorry about the TV I didn't know it was broken. I have replaced it with the bedroom TV temporarily and it will be replaced shortly with a new smart TV. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay - and hope to see you again soon. All the best, Pat

Great location, lovely little house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Cartmel; the house is small, but perfect for a couple, and we also had our two labradors with us who were more than happy with the space down stairs. The facilities are great and location next to the pub very handy. The only downside is no outside space, but that is purely because we have dogs; however there is a village green 20 seconds walk which is useful. We would definitely come again and the owner was really helpful.

Good quality, clean accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Small cottage but fine for two people. Everything you may need is provided and everywhere was very clean. Upstairs is surprisingly spacious, the bathroom gorgeous and the bed comfy. The stairs are only narrow and open on one side so only suitable for adults. Only downside is there being no outside space and nowhere close by to let our dog run around in the morning, this was made clear in the description though and didn't spoil our weekend.

Well provisioned, clean and tidy and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great wee cottage in the middle of Cartmel. It adjoins a pub but we heard very little noise and felt it was handy for a drink and meal. There are other pubs in Ealing distance as is everything else on the village. Shops, cafés, a local brewery, racecourse and lots of great walks if you're the active type. It's also a great base for getting out to the lakes. Ullswater is particularly good and we recommend the Steamer cruise. Parking is good at the cottage. We were able to park right at the door for the 5 nights we stayed there.

Cosy central cottage in Cartmel

  • 4 of 5

Easy to find, great location, very small and compact. Great for 2 people! Very clean, nice fixtures & fittings. TV, CD player, selection of DVDs. Lovely gas fire, which along with central heating keeps the cottage very warm! Local shop across the road in case you forget anything. Good pub next door. Despite that it's very quiet, the thick stone walls means you never hear your neighbours! As we were staying over Christmas, Pat had decorated the cottage for us, which was lovely! Cartmel is a lovely place to stay with great pubs and restaurants, no need to cook at home! Would definitely stay here again!
