The property

Caton Lane House is a detached cottage resting in the enchanting village of Cark in Cartmel, Cumbria. This beautifully presented cottage is set over three floors, providing the perfect stay for families, friends or couples looking to explore this part of Cumbria. Step through the door into Caton Lane House and be immediately transported into a world of period features, slate beams, and flagged floors. The high spec, contemporary, fitted kitchen with range cooker, double oven, 5-ring hob, fridge, freezer, and wine cooler is ideal for preparing a sumptuous feast to be enjoyed in the dining room. After dinner, retire to the lounge with two leather sofas to relax and wind down in the comfort of your own home, or light the woodburning stove in the inviting snug. Venture upstairs to find the super-king-size bedroom, a king-size and double on this level, accompanied by a bathroom with roll-top bath and shower over, so you can best decide how to freshen up for the day. Continue to the second-floor, home to a spacious twin bedroom with character low beams and an en-suite cloakroom. Once you're ready to explore, stock up on the essentials at the local shop, before grabbing a bite to eat and a tipple at The Engine Inn located opposite; further amenities lie in Cartmel, a haven for foodies, with award-winning, Michelin Star restaurants on offer, including L'Enclume. For attractions, be sure to tour the magnificent grounds of Holker Hall & Gardens, attend a race day at Cartmel Racecourse, or practise your swing at the Grange Over Sands Golf Club, before heading for the national park. Grab your walking boots to traverse through the Whitbarrow National Nature Reserve, where you can bird watch and feel at one with nature, or discover Lake Windermere and its array of attractions, where you can tour the Blackwell - the Arts & Crafts House, enjoy an afternoon of watersports upon the lake, and visit the Windermere Jetty Museum - Stories of boats and steam, before dining out at a lakeside restaurant. Escape to Caton Lane House for a splendid holiday in Cumbria.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 16 miles.

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public and also now home to a licensed brasserie The Ilex. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is four miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.
