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.

It's over four floors so the bedrooms are very quiet despite been in the center of town. It's easy to park on the road or two minutes walk behind the church. The house is newly developed but has some original features. It has underfloor heating in the kitchen and GCH everywhere else. Despite being a large property it's also very cozy and warm.

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.
