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.

We were delighted to stay in such a lovely property. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and the house was beautifully clean. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable (I think all beds were king size) Located only a short walk from Cartmel centre (I would take a couple of head torches for the walk back from Cartmel at nigh time) and on the doorstep of The Pig and Whistle pub, lovely pub / food and very welcoming. We are all keen to book again for next year.

I can honestly this place is perfect.....we have completely fallen in love with it. The space has been used so well, the log burner is great & the kitchen was well equipt. Being right on the beach the views are fantastic & it was a nice little stroll.....we didn't see another person!! It's the little haven of peace & quite that we were looking for & we couldn't have asked for more. We didn't want to leave & will definitely be back as soon!! Thank you Nick & Marie for creating our new favourite place!!
