    “A superb cottage in an amazing location, we could not have asked for anything more.”

    One thing to note, if you are going to eat at the Engine Inn, make sure you book.

The property

A charming, mid-terrace cottage situated in the little village of Cark in Cartmel, just two miles from Cartmel and eight miles from Lake Windermere.

Ideal for a small family, Amber Cottage is delightful accommodation for a short break to this peaceful region.

The exterior salmon pink walls of the cottage express an inviting look that welcomes you into your new home from home.

The open plan living room is perfect place for everyone to gather at the end of the day to both relax and plan more activities.

Also on the ground floor is the well-equipped kitchen, fitted with several appliances that ensure your culinary requirements are satisfied.

Take the stairs to reach the two, tastefully decorated bedrooms with one king-size double and a twin that’s ideal for children.

The ample bathroom serves both bedrooms.

Outside can be accessed via the patio doors in the living room, offering a secluded setup with flourishing garden bays and patio furniture allowing you to sit back and enjoy the peaceful ambiance.

Cark in Cartmel offers a general store and local pub, both just a short walk from the cottage.

The village boasts fantastic walking routes including a pretty river path to Holker Hall where you can appreciate stunning garden displays and even stop off at the cafe.

Two miles away is Cartmel, offering a wider selection of shops and eateries, even with a fine Michelin-starred restaurant and sticky toffee pudding shop.

A trip to the Lake District would make for an excellent day out, exploring the lively hubs of Bowness and Ambleside with a picturesque cruise across Lake Windermere to complete your visit.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere 16 miles.

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public and also now home to a licensed brasserie The Ilex. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is four miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.
