Cark in Cartmel

A holiday cottage in Cark-in-Cartmel is perfectly located for exploring both the Lake District and the Cumbria coast. This peaceful village is surrounded by unspoiled countryside, a stone’s throw from Morcambe Bay. Two cosy pubs, a village shop, a post office and rows of attractive stone houses make up this traditional Lakeland community. Once a prosperous mill village, Cark-in-Cartmel – or simply ‘Cark’ – is home to a number of impressive historical sites, such as Holker Hall, a magnificent building which houses a selection of wood carvings, furniture and paintings. The hall is set in extensive gardens, frequented by deer, and opposite the award-winning Lakeland Motor Museum. If you fancy a bite to eat or a pint of local ale in front of a roaring fire before returning to your holiday cottage in Cark-in-Cartmel, try to the Rose in Crown or the Engine Inn – both cosy pubs in the village centre.
