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.

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.

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!

Nice little cottage with good and bad bits

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with my husband for just short of a week in August. The cottage is really cute and bijoux there are some nice touches like the modern very well equipped kitchen. I always feel bad about winging about peoples things but as I was asked to review I will.

The mattress is very uncomfortable...I overcame this by sleeping on a sleeping bag we had brought (the sheets, quilt etc are lovely though).

Too many remote controls! How would a technophobe cope with bewildering systems? To watch a DVD you need to change the input mode on TV and so on and this was not written down.

The light for the kitchen in under the right hand cupboard in the kitchen...I could not find this so emailed the owner. What follows is my biggest bug bear, She emailed me back saying she would come at 9.30 am the next morning. I woke up at 9.15 am and saw the reply. I was furious that she didn't ask me when was convenient to come or even if I wanted her to!

The view from the back window is the beer garden of the pub next door, and a bunch of junk belonging to the pub next door I assume, I have pic's.

There is a local shop just round the corner opposite the cottage which has a lot of traffic coming and going and indeed a busy road, if you leave the bedroom window open you don't sleep due to noise if you close it you don't sleep as it's too hot (I imagine in the cold weather it's welcome though). I have taken a video of this which I intended to use on Trip Advisor.

The locality is very nice, the dog walk through the racecourse is fab.

Cartmel is an upmarket village with lots going on even though it's small.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that you had some issues with your stay at Causeway Cottage. A new mattress has been provided since this comment was posted. The guest information will be amended to help future guests locate the light switch for the kitchen spotlights, and instructions for using the remote controls will be provided. The village shop is open to 8pm in the summer and 7.30 in winter so disturbance is not usually an issue due to early closing. The mattress has not been commented on before - so I plan to sleep on it to get an idea of why you found it uncomfortable. The pub behind the cottage were asked to remove the stuff they had piled up which was visible from the rear dining window (as discussed with your husband when i called in) and this has now been removed. The situation of the cottage is shown on our website and it is clear that the cottage is situated on a street in the village with a pub next door - we do not state that the cottage is in a tranquil quiet location - we do try to ensure that guests are not mislead or disappointed when they visit. I called in to respond to your request for help in locating the kitchen light switch and whilst there I showed how to switch from TV to DVD as requested. Had you phoned me to ask me not to call in that would perhaps have saved my visit causing you irritation - I am sorry you found it inconvenient and hope it didn't spoil your holiday.
