Accommodation in detail
From one of the little lanes leading from the market square the front door opens to a smart, contemporary, dual aspect kitchen diner with a well-equipped, quality fitted kitchen with electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer and microwave. The large dining table is ideal for socialising over dinner with friend or relaxing family breakfasts at the start of the day. The cosy sitting room is beautifully furnished with comfortable sofa and armchairs, pretty window seats and the proximity to the racecourse is reflected in the artwork.
As the day draws to a close choose from two welcoming bedrooms all with quality furniture and comfortable bed; the first is presented as a double with en suite shower, WC and basin, the second can be presented as either a double or a twin. The bedrooms are complemented by an additional shower room with basin and WC.
One parking space along side of the barn and a parking permit is available for the village car park for a further car just one minute walk from the cottage.
Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, the sleepy picture postcard village of Cartmel has grown up around its famous 12th Century medieval Priory Church. It is a special place where ancient history and tradition mingle effortlessly with the present day. Very close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere and within 30 minutes of Grizedale Forest and the bustling Lake District towns of Bowness on Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere and the market town of Kendal.
Although steeped in history, Cartmel is not trapped in time and the village offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, a wide variety of traditional Lakeland inns and cutting edge gourmet restaurants including the internationally acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant, L'Enclume. Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings.
All this and the famous Cartmel racecourse providing national hunt racing in its most original format is just off the centre of the village square. With its party crowds and funfair, Cartmel rekindles the social gathering tradition of the original steeple to steeple chases.
