“House of splendour”
Reviewed 29 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Brilliant house, very relaxing, quiet and peaceful, surrounded by countryside. Great for large family holidays and enough space if you need your own space. Recently added Summerhouse a wonderful bonus. Central for trips to the Lakes or the Coast and breathtaking scenery on walks in many directions. Wish we could have stayed longer especially for the Cartmel Race meeting at the Bank Holiday weekend as it was only 15 mins walk down the lane and through the woods, (30mins walk back up hill!). Thank you Simon for attending to our needs.

Thank you Catherine for your lovely review. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, the house, the garden and the area so much.

Just a note to other readers, there’s a short cut to the village using a footpath along the river and racecourse. This only takes 20 minutes.

As Catherine points out, there’s not a lot of taxis in the rural area but we do provide the numbers for the local taxi companies in the ‘welcome information book’ in the house.

“Great Cartmel Stay”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We decided to book a holiday weekend rental in a place we know well. We've stayed in Cartmel Fell a number of times but this time we decided to stay closer to the lovely village of Cartmel. The cottage is beautiful. Lovely views, large airy rooms, great furniture, lovely kitchen, comfortable beds and beautiful views. The pictures on line don't do Cartmel Hill justice. I would highly recommend this cottage for anybody wanting a break in the South Lakes.

“Stunning House”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is a stunning House in a wonderful location with amazing views . The house itself is warm and welcoming with beautiful furnishings and everything you could want for a home from home stay. The fact that you can bring a pet dog is an added bonus and the reason we initially chose it, We are so very pleased we did, and cant wait to return .

“Stunning location”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is one of the nicest rental we have stayed in, the views are amazing from every room and we were lucky with the weather so made the most of the garden and BBQ. Slight issue with deposit

Thank you for your review although we are very disappointed that even though you loved the house, the location and every aspect of your stay at Cartmel Hill you have only given us 3 out of 5.

This is the 1st time this stunning house has had a rating lower than 5 out of 5.

It is clear that you have given us a low rating because you are disappointed that we charged you £20 for the theft of a cushion.
We emailed you and politely asked if the cushion had been taken home ‘accidentally’ but as it has not been returned to us we have had to charge for the item.

Wow!
What a fantastic cottage.
scenery is beautifull.
The pictures on the internet don't do it justice.High end finishes throughout the cottage and can't wait to return. Had a fantastic time. The whole process was easy and professional from the owner.
Can't praise them enough, have allready recommended the cottage to family and friends.
