Charming Holiday Cottage at Greenbank, Cartmel, Cumbria. It is easily accessible from outside the Lake District with magnificent views over the surrounding Fells, and of the sea, 2 miles away.
Recently refurbished, very comfortable accommodation with open fireplace and a large walled garden, making it an ideal location all the year round as the area benifits from the mild climate generated by the Gulf Stream.
Cartmel Cottage sleeps 4, with one double and one twin bedded room. A cot is also available for an extra small child.
Offering beautiful valley views, this cosy cottage is set on its own in farm land on a very quiet route in restful countryside. The cottage is just 200 yards from the owners' home.
Walks to Cartmel village (1 mile) and Holker Hall (3 miles), well known for its gardens and motor museum, are set in lakeland scenery. Walking further up the valley one finds grandstand views of the Lakeland Fells. Cartmel, known for its old world appeal, is built around an ancient Priory. Although quite small, it boasts race course, restaurants, pubs and shops including the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding shop. The many attractions of this lovely area are within an easy drive. Golf and riding locally, as well as Holker Hall. Grange-over-Sands, a Victorian resort 3 miles to the south-east, has more facilities including a newly built swimming pool. To the North are the main Lakes within easy driving distance, with the Windermere Steamers leaving from Lakeside, which itself can be reached using the Haverthwaite steam railway.
