It was a really good location and had everything we could need. For something quite small it was well designed and comfortable. Thank you very much for the coffee and the wine - a very nice touch.

The house is extremely comfortable, well-equipped and immaculately clean. The upside-down layout makes the most of the incredible view; you can relax in the lounge looking out over the countryside with the sea in the distance. We were even lucky enough to have the most adorable little lambs running around in the field behind the house! Clare, the owner, is extremely welcoming and helpful without ever being intrusive. And as for location, it is within easy distance of the Lake District National Park where the scenery is so completely stunning that I can safely say we plan to return and we certainly plan to stay at Cartmel Manse again!

The cottage was located within the holiday park which was not stated at any point in any of the directions so took us a while to find it.....but when we got there it was great.
