    Quaint Cartmel Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests

    A quaint white washed stone cottage in a quiet village just south of Windermere and within walking distance of the lake shore.
    S59725 is situated in the peaceful South Lakeland hamlet of Staveley-in-Cartmel, just a stone’s throw away from Windermere and the National Trust park and gardens, Fellfoot. A former Besom store, this traditional whitewashed cottage is perfectly positioned to explore the popular Lakeland villages of Ambleside, Grasmere, Coniston and Keswick, as well as the quieter corners and beaches of the South Lakeland Peninsulas and West Lakes including, Grange-over-Sands, Cartmel and Arnside.

    Just a short walk from S59725 is Gummers Howe, one of the Lake District’s top ten picturesque picnic spots, whilst a host of woodland walks and cycle tracks lead directly from the cottage up into the surrounding fells to offer stunning panoramic views. The nearby, quaint market town of Ulverston, teeming with eclectic, independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants and with entertainment for all ages, is only 4 miles away by car. There are also days out at the Lakeside Aquarium, traditional steam train experience at Lakeside and Haverthwaite, and the popular South Lakeland Zoo which are also just a short drive away.

    Beatrix Potter fans will find plenty to interest them at her home at Far Sawrey, near Hawkshead and at The World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness-on-Windermere, whilst art and poetry lovers will adore the delightful Dove Cottage at Grasmere, which was home to William Wordsworth, and the beautiful house and gardens of Brantwood at Coniston, which was home to John Ruskin. After a busy day splashing on the water in boats, hiking over the fells or cycling through Grizedale Forest, snuggle up by the fire and enjoy a cup of cocoa at S59725, or head out to the lovely pub close by for a sumptuous meal and drinks on the banks of the River Leven.

    Valerie – 14 Nov 2018
    "S59725 is great for a quiet relaxing break and in a good location for a drive to other Lake district locations.The only downside was we thought the cottage needed a deep clean and the carpets made the cottage feel dark."
    Carl – 10 Nov 2018
    "Lovely quaint cottage with stunning views,easy access to all local areas would definitely recommend to others."
    ANGELA – 28 Oct 2018
    "A lovely stay in a very quiet cottage in an ideal location. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Ideal for Lake Windermere and for exploring nearby and further afield."
    Susan – 20 Oct 2018
    "Beautiful, very clean and nicely decorated cottage in quaint little village, walking distance to park for the kids to play (makes up for no garden) but not a trip they could make themselves. Well placed for visiting local attractions (by car)Only disappointment was the local pub was not in walking distance, certainly not on a safe route with or without the kids and this was one of our criteria so a little disappointed. However I would stay again and enjoyed it very much, maybe advert just needs to make suitability of the road for walking a bit clearer."
    Darren – 5 Oct 2018
    "Fantastic cottage, cosy, comfortable and warm. Ideally located for both Windermere and Coniston, wish we’d booked for two weeks as we couldn’t get a quarter of the things done we wanted to do. Will definitely be back, many thanks."
    Steven – 22 Sep 2018
    "Great location , just far enough out from major and busy locations but still easy to access them all , very quiet and relaxing ."
    Jean – 17 Sep 2018
    "It was a comfy cottage although lacking some equipment and essentials such as black rubbish bags. The parking was OK as long as there was no other car parked outside as the street was very narrow."
    Angela – 10 Sep 2018
    "Really enjoyed our stay. Shame no garden or parking but otherwise perfect"
    Janice – 23 Jun 2018
    "We loved S59725 (retired couple) and its charming rural location in a small hamlet. The size, character and layout suited us perfectly. It was in an ideal location, close (by car) to all the lakes and places of interest we were keen to visit. It would have scored a ten if there'd been a pub and little grocer's within walking distance. Booth's (excellent high quality supermarket on a par with Waitrose) was a drive away on the outskirts of Ulverston. The Swan, a pub with an extensive menu, was considerably nearer, but still warranted a drive in the car for us. Parking in the narrow lane was rather tight for a large car. The passenger had to get out so the driver could pull in close to the hedge, brushing against it. However, we soon adapted to the situation and eagerly explored the stunning scenery and little villages around The Lakes. The homes of Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and John Ruskin were highlights as were Hawkshead, Keswick and Ambleside. We'd love to return to S59725 and would recommend it to anyone who is planning a visit to The Lake District."
    Emma – 3 Apr 2018
    "We had a fabulous few days at S59725. The cottage was well equipped , lovely and cosy and in a good position for walks . Excellent hotels near by for fab food . We were also lucky with the weather. Our dogs enjoyed it too, our only wish would have been a garden but we booked the cottage knowing there wasn’t one . Excellent value for money."
