Closeby is the dining room, offering seating for six from which you can all gather round during mealtimes.

The convenience of a cloakroom completes the ground floor.

The Old Police Station hosts three bedrooms; two doubles with one having access to a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom and a second enjoying an en-suite shower room.

There is a wonderfully presented twin bedroom that is ideal for the children.

Outside you can find some patio furniture, perfect for alfresco dining on those warmer evenings.

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

The situation of the cottage means everything within the village is within walking distance - wander the cobbled streets of Cartmel to uncover a selection small boutiques, antique shops and gift shops, along with an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, with even a Michelin-starred restaurant to try.

Two miles away is the quiet town of Grange-over-Sands, whilst the enchanting attractions of Windermere and Bowness are only a fifteen minute drive.
