    “Lavender Cottage is lovely, cosy and very comfortable.”

    Everything you could possibly need and more is there. The welcome pack was very well received by us and our dog, Oscar. Thankyou for making it an extra special Christmas for us. It is in a lovely spot and even with the bad weather we had some great days out. Karen, Kevin and Oscar

The property

A delightful mid-terrace dwelling, Lavender Cottage, is located on the banks of the River Eea in the quaint village of Cark in Cartmel, Cumbria. Closely situated near Lake Windermere and the national park, whilst adorning characterful features, an enclosed patio, and riverside views, the cottage makes the ideal base for a romantic getaway, inviting two guest and two furry companions. Park up to the roadside before travelling by foot to the cottage, firstly reaching the homely sitting room, complete with a Smart TV, plush seating, a gas fire, and a charming window seat, perfect for enjoying the vistas of the river and the fields beyond. Continue through to the contemporary kitchen/diner, well-equipped to rustle up delicious meals and keep on top of your holiday washing. Discover the conservatory, the ideal place to enjoy a morning coffee or a late-night tipple, or head outdoors for an alfresco affair, benefiting from an enclosed patio with access to an external outbuilding for further appliances and lockable bike storage. The interior is complete with a king-size bedroom with 100% cotton bedding, plush dressing gowns, an en-suite walk-in shower, and a handy dressing room, offering everything you’ll need for a self-catered stay. Running along the front of this pretty Cumbrian cottage is the River Eea which provides a peaceful and tranquil place to enjoy the local wildlife, whilst an abundance of walking and cycling trails can be joined from the doorstep. The small village of Cark in Cartmel has a shop and pub, both just a short walk from the cottage, and the beautiful Holker Hall and Gardens are also within walking distance, spanning across 200-acres of woodland and pretty grounds. The village of Cartmel is nearby and is one of the prettiest villages in the area with its historic priory and a stream running through the centre opening into a square surrounded by award-winning pubs and restaurants, as well as being the home of the world-famous sticky toffee pudding. The Lakeland villages of Coniston, Hawkshead and Grasmere are all reachable by car, and the tip of Lake Windermere is just 8 miles away and is home to Fell Foot Park where you can hire rowing boats to explore this beautiful area. Grizedale Forest is also a must visit, worth packing your walking boots for, also welcoming of dogs, or if you’d prefer to explore the coastline, Grange-Over-Sands Beach is a short distance away, enveloped by a host of attractions. Enjoy a romantic getaway at Lavender Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
