    “Lavender cottage was beautifully presented & the owners have thought of everything you could want for a home from home stay, plus the lovely thoughtful touch of a welcome basket & fresh flowers on arrival, plus doggy treats.”

    The owners were very helpful & friendly & nothing seemed too much trouble. It's in a lovey location near to a few local villages, 2 minutes walk to 2 pubs & a shop, 5 to station, 10 walk or 3 minutes driving to Flookborough chippy.

We would love to revisit sometime, maybe for Cartmel races again. Definitely recommended.

The property

A quaint, mid-terrace cottage positioned riverside to the River Eea in the Lakeland village of Cark in Cartmel, just two miles from the attractive village of Cartmel and eight miles from Lake Windermere.

Lavender Cottage is an excellent base for a small family looking for a relaxing break with great opportunities to explore the Lake District.

Offering a cosy interior, the comfortable sitting room features two spacious sofas and a charming window bay seat, providing picturesque views across the river and beyond, whilst the well-equipped kitchen benefits from integrated appliances and a dining table for four.

Adjoining the kitchen is the sun room, offering a quieter spot to enjoy a good book or to simply reflect upon the day.

There are two bedrooms here; a king-size double and a twin room, which is accessed through the double.

Outside is a small patio space with furniture, proving an opportunity for some alfresco dining.

Additionally, the patio is fully enclosed, making it ideal for parties with a dog.

From the cottage you can enjoy a beautiful walk alongside the River Eea, filled with wildlife and pretty scenery.

The unspoilt village of Cark in Cartmel provides a local shop and pub, both of which are only a short walk from the cottage, as well as the stunning grounds of Holker Hall, formerly a home to Lord Cavendish.

Cartmel is only a short drive away and is where you can find a handful of excellent pubs and restaurants, including the L’Enclume Michelin-starred restaurant, several independent boutiques and antique shops as well as a beautiful Priory with a small shop.

The delights of the Lake District aren't far either, with Lake Windermere less than 15 minutes away, it’s ideal for a day out.

Lavender Cottage is a welcoming home to be enjoyed throughout the year.

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.
