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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The Old Manor Stables provided a good base for our visit to this area of the Lake District. We were 4 adults celebrating a birthday and we were within a short driving distance to Cartmel and L’Enclume restaurant. The comfortable bedrooms are downstairs and so it was quite noisy when anyone was walking around upstairs. The upstairs space was great with a kitchen and dining area and large sofas in front of the television and log burning stove. The views from this room were lovely. The outside space would be great for children with a good play area. There was no iron or ironing board and we also thought there could have been kitchen foil and maybe some cooking oil in the kitchen. Otherwise the space was well equipped for a comfortable stay in good or bad weather. The space was very warm with radiators and storage heaters. The beds were comfortable and there were nice towels for the bathroom. We enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Lovely house, in a great location, everything you need is provided. The visitors information book is full of useful tips, which is a thoughtful bonus, as loads of places are just a box of leaflets. It felt like we were staying in a friends house, really welcoming place & lovely garden for kids too. We hope to return and do more exploring in the area.

Such a charming cottage in a lovely location. It felt very welcoming and is really well equipped with comfortable beds! We loved the 'Juliette ' balcony and took advantage of some afternoon sun out there. The maps and books were great too. We look forward to next time, thanks so much Ali.
