Calsfell View B&B
Ranked #13 of 15 Cartmel B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a real gem of a B&B. Over the years B&B`s have really upped their standards and this property is at the top of them all. You could not ask for more. Caroline really does cater for all the needs of a weary walker. Nothing was too much trouble. A really lovely establishment.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 Quiet, peaceful & a great bed

I had researched accommodation in Cartmel as I had booked L’enclume for our anniversary dinner. Calsfell View popped up in top spot with very good reviews. I didn’t hesitate to book this several months in advance. Caroline was a delightful host, very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were spotless and nice touches such as complimentary sherry. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. I had the eggs benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce. I just wish I could have had this on a different morning instead of the morning after our 2 Michelin star meal at L’enclume. This is a fabulous place to stay and should we find ourselves in this area again I would not look for anywhere else.

What an outstanding level of service provided! Well cooked breakfasts; welcoming interior and a very helpful landlady. What more could you want? Situated in the very historic village of Cartmel Calsfell B and B was everything you could have wanted. The land lady (Caroline) even gave me a lift from the station as I don't have a car and made sure that everything needed/ asked for was provided and even got to meet her very friendly Labrador. Thanks for a great stay; I shall return.

Our main purpose in Cartmel was to visit L’enclume. We stayed 2 nights (Friday-Sunday) and it is a great base in which to explore the local area and further afield (Bowness-on-Windermere is 1/2 hour drive away).

We stayed in the front room, large, very clean and tidy. Lots of storage for our posh clothes and ‘wet weather’ gear. Well decorated and colour scheme matched. Great bathroom and luxuries provided - including a delicious nightcap.

Brilliant choice for breakfast - separate veggie menu. We could also order ‘off menu’ and request something the night before. We had the posh scrambled eggs (with truffle oil and parmesan) and eggs benedict. Both well cooked and to our liking. Caroline sources from local suppliers as well as her friends which is a lovely touch.

Caroline is a great source of local information and knowledge and is only too happy to make recommendations about walks, eateries, events and ‘touristy’ things.

Walking into the town is easy - 5-10 minute to L’enclume in a straight line so couldn’t get lost! Everyone is very friendly and polite.

There is limited parking in the town and Caroline has 2 spaces for guests which is a real bonus. We didn’t use the car at all during our stay.


We strongly recommend the B&B and will use this as a base to continue exploring the South Lakes in the future.

Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxed stay.

Caroline made us feel very welcome and our room was super comfortable. She makes the best eggs benedict ever (breakfast ingredients were all sourced locally and from good suppliers). A credit to Cartmel and strongly recommended.

We've just got home from a one night stay at Calsfell view, it really was top notch. The room was great & the location is ideal (just a short stroll into Cartmel). Caroline (the owner) gives the B&B the edge - she is welcoming, informative and has thought of all the small things that make the difference (maps, a torch for the dark nights, discount card for the local eateries & more).
Thank you.
