The property

This 1700s fisherman’s cottage sits in a market square in the heart of the idyllic village of Flookburgh. Delightfully presented with character features throughout, Daffodil Cottage welcomes couples for a romantic stay with easy access to shops and restaurants along with Cartmel and the Lake District further afield. Step inside into the porch area, where you can hang your coats and store your muddy boots, before reaching the the living space where you will notice the feature beams and charming woodburner set in the small nook, inviting you to sit down and tune into the Smart TV. Cross over into the kitchen and get to work on a favourite dish, assisted by a range of appliances, including a handy washing machine so there’s no need to bring your whole wardrobe! Move upstairs and begin freshening up in the bathroom, complete with bath and shower over so you can best decide, before making yourself comfortable within the double bedroom – there is a Smart TV so you can watch your favourite shows to bed. Head out the door and within a moment’s stroll there is a family-run pub, Hope & Anchor, where you can enjoy a selection of ales and a hearty food menu, whilst there is also a popular fish and chip shop if you fancy something quick. The village of Cartmel is nearby and is famous for both its medieval priory and the L’Enclume restaurant. The village also has its own racecourse, interesting shops including the Cartmel village shop where speciality puddings can be purchased including the tasty sticky toffee pudding. Head further afield and uncover the delights of the Lake District National Park, with the attractive areas of Grizedale, Coniston Water and Hawkshead within easy reach. Head to the bustling seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands and explore its popular woodland and traffic free promenade or continue along the coast towards Humprey Head and marvel at the views over Morecambe Bay. Escape to Daffodil Cottage with your better half and box off the many wonders of Cumbria.

About the location

FLOOKBURGH

Cartmel 2 miles; Grange-over-Sands 3 miles.

A superb base to explore this interesting and beautiful area, the historic village of Flookburgh is set near the shores of Morecambe Bay on the outskirts of the magnificent Lake District. It is thought that the locally-caught Fluke fish take their name after the village, and once, Flookburgh was a popular resting point for travellers crossing the sands from Lancaster and still provides a home for cockle and shrimp fishers. Facilities in the village include a pub, a grocery, a chemist, a Post Office and two food outlets. The Cumbrian Coastal Way footpath passes nearby and a short walk away from the village is delightful countryside, such as Humphrey Head, views of the bay, with its wading bird life, and Coniston's mountain range. A few minutes’ drive or a pleasant off road walk leads to historic Cartmel, with its beautiful Priory, popular race course, antique and gift shops, pubs and restaurants; including the Michelin Star-rated L’Enclume. Just over a mile away you will find the beautiful house and gardens of Holker Hall and also nearby you can try horse riding just six miles to the north at Bigland, or visit the Edwardian resort of Grange, which offers a range of hotels, restaurants, shops, a traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens and golf courses.
