5 minute drive from the popular village of Cartmel. 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Well equipped kitchen, open plan living space with rural views. 2 country pubs on the doorstep, plus a convenience store and artisan bakery/pizzeria. Next door to Holker Hall. Lake Windermere 8 miles away. Perfect Lake District get away.
This cottage is a very special, romantic property at any time of year. In the summer the gardens are full of flowers, butterflies, and the fields opposite graze cows and sheep. In winter you can get the wood burning stove blazing away and snuggle around the fire, or take long frosty walks and enjoy the local pubs most of which have big fires blazing in the winter, and serve great food and fine wine/ales. There are so many walks local to the cottage, but also a short drive up into the Lake District National Park you have all the mountains at your disposal. Cark is a quiet residential village so even during Cartmel Race weekends, you will not be bothered by tourists, crowds and traffic. You can escape the busy areas and enjoy peace and quiet, but you are very close to Cartmel and Grange over Sands, and 25 minutes from the charming market towns of Kendal and Ulverston should you want something more lively.
The cottage comfortably sleeps a couple, or a couple with 1 or 2 children. There is a king size bed in one room, a single bed in a second room, and bunk beds in a third. All these bedrooms share a small bathroom. The sleeping area is on the ground floor, and the open plan living area on the 1st floor. It is possible to sleep 5 or even 6, but you would need to be close friends and not mind sharing a cosy space. Extra charge for more than 4 people.
Access to the entire 3 bedroom property, a large west facing balcony, ample off road parking, and enclosed lawned gardens of quite a large size.
Interaction with guests
I am available on the phone for any problems you might have, or if anything else is required I will do my best to help. I live 3 miles away from the cottage so can be on hand quickly, and know the area very well for any information or advice you might need.
Other things to note
I also have a small luxury walkers barn, sleeps 2, near Cartmel, and a bespoke campsite, also near Cartmel. See Jammy Patch online for more info.
Please leave the cottage in a clean and respectful condition. Please do any washing up, and leave all the games, maps, books and CDs exactly as you find them.
If you have time, stripping the beds is helpful.
If the cleaning time required exceeds the normal 3 hours then an extra charge of £25 per hour of extra cleaning will be taken from the deposit.
