  •  Private shingled courtyard garden to the rear of the property for relaxing and alfresco dining
  • Located in the well-loved foodie village of Cartmel with its Norman priory
  • Ideal location for exploring both the Lakes and the coast, with the seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands lying within a ten-minute drive
Property code: LCC47

Stylish cottage offering a high standard of accommodation for four guests, situated in the much sought-after Cumbrian village of Cartmel, located 6.5 miles from the shores of Lake Windermere.

Good food, peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, and the seaside: this is all on offer locally for guests staying at this property, not to mention a huge choice of outdoor pursuits and places of interest. Spend your days walking in the fells and mountains of the lake district, or perhaps head out onto Lake Windermere on one of the leisurely cruises. More adventurous or sporty types might like to try kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, or even open-water swimming if they are feeling brave, or perhaps stay on dryland and give abseiling, gorge walking, or ghyll scrambling a go. There is also lots on offer for those with an interest in finding out more about the heritage and history of the area, with the homes of Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, and William Wordsworth all being open to the public and all offering a fascinating insight into the lives of these famous Lake District residents.

 

Guests enter this property in the hallway/utility room which is where they can leave coats and muddy boots, and is also where the washing machine and tumble dryer can be found. From here they will come directly to the kitchen, which is well-equipped with a Range oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is the first of two reception rooms, a welcoming lounge/diner which, in addition to the dining table also has a comfy sofa, a flame-effect gas fire, and a TV/DVD. The second lounge offers yet another space for guests to relax, again with a flame-effect gas fire, and TV/DVD, but this time with French windows which open onto the courtyard garden. Upstairs there are two tasteful bedrooms both of which benefit from their own en-suite facilities. The master bedroom is a spacious king-size room offering plenty of wardrobe space and a dressing table as well as its own TV. A door leads through to the en-suite bathroom, a sanctuary-like room with a deep corner bath, separate shower, and a WC. The second bedroom is a twin room, finished to the same high standard as the master bedroom and benefitting from an en-suite shower and WC.

 

Patio doors from the lounge lead out to the shingled courtyard where guests will find garden furniture, making it the perfect spot for sitting out in the evenings enjoying alfresco drinks or meals. There is a gated parking area to the side of the property which has space for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 king-size with TV and 1 twin
  • En-suite bathroom with bath, shower, and WC to the king-size room
  • En-suite shower room with WC to the twin room
  • TV/DVD in the lounge and lounge/diner
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and tumble dryer
  • Bed linen, towels, electric and heating included
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Off-road parking for 2 cars (Parking can be difficult to find on the road in Cartmel - especially on race days)
  • Shops and pubs within walking distance

Comfortable, cosy, well equipped cottage. Boot room/utility room was well used during our stay due to the wet weather. Off street parking was much appreciated at busy junction. Location was excellent next to pub, sandwich shop and grocery store. Cartmel village has some excellent pubs, restaurants, shops and its own brewery!

A fabulous house in a beautiful location. The house has many useful facilities. Cartmel was delightful and a good location from which to explore the Lakes by car. The weather was mixed during our stay but it didnt stop us getting out and about enjoying long walks and visiting tourist attractions. Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable break.

Rossendale House is roomy and light. Spotlessly clean always. Our fourth visit already booked for next year. It's very quiet and well situated for access to anything in Cartmel which is a beautiful little village, very good for "foodies". Always feel relaxed as soon as we get to Rossendale.

Cottage is well placed for all that Cartmel has to offer, off road parking good. Owners have put a lot of work into making the cottage a most welcoming environment. The preparations post lockdown were good, plenty of extra cleaning products, although we did take a 'covid 19 kit'with us for extra safety.
