Cartmel, Grange-over-Sands, Lake District, Cumbria, England
A charming cottage at Greenbank, Cartmel, Cumbria. It is easily accessible from outside the Lake District with magnificent views over the surrounding Fells, and of the sea, 3 miles away. Shops and other facilities are available a mile away in Cartmel.Refurbished, fully equipped and very comfortable, centrally heated accommodation with open fireplace and an extensive walled garden, an ideal location all the year round as the area benefits from the mild climate generated by the Gulf Stream. We have put a new king size bed into Woodland Cottage, made from yew posts and elm sides, wood from our garden. You can see pictures on the website. The bed, like all the others in Woodland Cottage, has a mattress made by Hypnos, mattress makers by appointment to H.M. Queen, one of the few British manufacturers with sustainable business practice.... Read more

I love this place! It's just a beautiful environment in which to spend a few days. On your own, with a partner or with friends. The garden is fantastic. The view from the higher section is amazing. The total darkness you experience there at night (and how much that improves your sleep). The log fire. The way horses and even...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits in a large garden surrounded by fields and has views over the surrounding farmland. In the garden around the lawn there are trees and rocky outcrops. The building's front garden is on a very quiet road which is on the coast-to-coast bicycle route. There are a few houses nearby, but the nearest is over 100 yards away. There are lots of walks nearby with all sorts of profiles, to suit all from very active to not so active. There is a riding school nearby, also quad bike rental, motor museum historic churches and stately home. Further into the Lake District are many and varied things to do.
Situated a mile north of Cartmel in the South Lakes Peninsulas of the Lake District in the Northwest of England, it is about 2 hours' drive from Manchester. 15 miles from...
