Owned by a carpenter and a journalist - so brilliantly maintained, and very close to pubs!!! Alan and Alison grew up on the Fylde Coast, moved toward Manchester owing to work commitments, but have forever loved the Lake District. Travelled the world extensively, including abseiling in Oz's Blue Mountains; road tripping across various bits of the USA; visiting various bits of Asia; cruising the Caribbean... and boating on the Thames. But both still vote the Lakes as their favourite place on the planet!
Alison purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Alison chose Cartmel
Unique property in an unrivalled position - right in the centre of the village but not overlooked, and with a private courtyard to enjoy peace and quiet in the sunshine if the pubs and paths ever get too much! Since the purchase in 2006, the entire property has been reroofed - an enormous project overseen by Alan, who continues to keep the place in tip top condition, with regular refurbishment and upgrades. the kitchen and both bathrooms have been refurbished in Jan 2017, and Bed2 in Dec 2017.

Fab 4 days
Right from arriving to leaving the attention to detail from Alison was excellent and would recommend to anyone convenient for everything in this picturesque village
Quirky comfortable, well equipped flat in a gem of a town.
Charming and comfortable flat in a very friendly quintessentially English village. Loved being opposite cavendish arms - fantastic food! Friday night pizza night at the Yard was a highlight as was eating at Rogan. Easter at the Lakes felt more like the South of France - just wish we’d bought our swimming trunks to swim in the Lakes! Thank you.
Fabulous apartment with everything you could need.
Apartment was very clean and welcoming. Ideal location in Cartmel.
Sarah and her sister were lovely to have as guests. Thankyou for staying x
Stayed in this perfect little flat for 3 nights while we (4) explored the lakes and went to Cartmel races. Everything we needed was available to us and the location for the races couldn’t have been better. We should have stayed longer and if/when we return would happily book with Alison & Alan again who were more than helpful, friendly & kind.
Well appointed and nicely presented apartment with fabulous outside space right in the centre of Cartmel. Very handy for all Cartmel and the South Lakes has to offer.
Cartmel break and 5 the Tower
Nice flat in wonderful location for sightseeing and excellent places to eat without getting into the car. What more could one ask?
We're right in the village centre, not stuck out in one of the neighbouring hamlets. Forget your car: walk the Fells, reach the coast or potter through the cobbled streets straight from the flat. Holker Hall, with its stunning grounds, is walkable too. Windermere's shore and all the Lakes have to offer is a 15min drive away. We offer the perfect base to explore. In 2018 Cartmel will offer nine days racing, with our living room window offering views over the rooftops, onto the course. Local attractions include Grizedale forest, the homes of Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth, and Ruskin. Spectacular scenery is yours for the walking, or just enjoy looking at it from our windows. You can't fail to enjoy staying in one of England's prettiest villages. The genteel seaside town of Grange is 3miles away. And the three race meetings in Cartmel each year offer the opportunity to see the village at its daftest - book early as the entire place gets busy during these great festivals. But rest assured, that while in the hub of the village, you'll get peace and quiet, with your own private courtyard to sit in too. Here you can BBQ, eat al fresco at the table, or pull out a deck chair from our shed and enjoy the sunshine. Our flat is not overlooked, as we're at the top of the house. It offers great views from the living room. Sit and eat at the table - forget the TV, and watch the world go by. Or enjoy the beautiful air, and sit in our courtyard - it's our's exclusively, as is the store/shed which is perfect for storing all your outdoor paraphenalia ... muddy boots, bikes, whatever!
Other Activities: Cartmel Races; Segway; Archery etc (Cartmel segway appears at the top of TripAdvisors Things to Do in the area); Holker Hall. Everything the Lake District has to offer. Fellfoot park, with sailing and boat hire; Lakeside - acquarium, steamers up the Lake; steam railway; Lakeland motor museum.
Parking: a new parking scheme was introduced in Nov '17. We have a visitors' permit which will give you free parking. This will be available in the flat on arrival, and will be available as part of your returnable good housekeeping bind - which will be payable off-site, direct to us. You will have to ensure the permit is left as found, for the bond to be returned. Further info from Alison on booking.
