The property

A magnificent, semi-detached house situated on the fringe of Cark in Cartmel, benefiting from lovely riverside views.

This homely cottage would be an ideal base for a large family seeking a quiet holiday with exploration opportunities towards the Lake District and surrounding areas.

The sitting room offers a comfortable place to reflect upon the days activities or plan another, with a spacious seating arrangement and dining table at one side.

There is a second snug room which offers a quieter spot to watch TV or indulge in a good read.

Completing the ground floor is the utility room and contemporary kitchen which boasts an array of high-end, fitted appliances.

Riverside View hosts three bedrooms including the king-size master which benefits from a TV and en-suite shower room.

The additional twin bedrooms are served by the sumptuous family bathroom and have the added benefit of a flat screen TV.

From the property there are several splendid walks through the countryside and along the river bank - a truly picturesque scene packed with wildlife.

Wander into the village of Cark where you will find a general shop and a fine pub.

Two miles away is Cartmel, home to a collection of small shops, pubs and restaurants, and also a famous racecourse which thrives in the summer.

Adding to your sightseeing itinerary is the popular Lake District National Park, reached in a 15 minute drive and the home to the bustling towns of Bowness and Ambleside, along with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country.

After a tiring day out, return to the peace and quiet of Riverside View.

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.
