Cartmel 2 miles; Bowness on Windermere | 16 miles

Cark in Cartmel is a small Lakeland village just two miles from Cartmel, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. Cark is well served by the Furness line railway, and features pretty streamside strolls, lovely walks to the local coastline overlooking Morecambe Bay, two fine traditional old pubs and a scattering of small shops. It is a very short stroll from here to Holker Hall, the stately home of Lord Cavendish, whose house, gardens and deer park are open to the public and also now home to a licensed brasserie The Ilex. Take advantage of excellent walking opportunities amidst beautiful unspoilt countryside or visit The National Hunt Racecourse, the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and the Lakeland Motor Museum, all close by. Nearby Cartmel offers quaint cobbled streets littered with antique shops, charming gift shops, welcoming traditional pubs serving real ales, and the nationally acclaimed Michelin Star awarded L'Enclume restaurant. The quiet seaside retreat of Grange-over-Sands, with its Edwardian buildings, mountain backdrop, fabulous sea views, promenade and two golf courses is four miles away. Windermere, with its panoramic views over England's longest lake, is within a fifteen minute drive. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.

Spacious cottage ideal for families and dogs by abrindles on August 27th 2017

Our party of 4 adults 1 child and dogs found this cottage ideal as a relaxed base for enjoying the lakes. The rooms easily accommodated our various needs. tv's in downstairs rooms and each bedroom and wi-fi connection helped when we wanted our own space. Kitchen is well equipped and utility room was useful for our dogs. The bedrooms are spacious with marvellous built in wardrobes which i would have liked to have at home. A stream runs immediately along the back of the cottage and we appreciated the scene of cattle grazing in green fields on the other side of water although one of our dogs was wary of the sight of cows. One negative is that Cark like many villages in the area has narrow pavements and it was difficult to negotiate around the village with child and dogs.

by Mrs Buck on June 28th 2016

We had an excellent stay, the cottage was well equipped with everything there. Good location for all surrounding areas & cartmell races. Good if you are staying with dogs as there is a big utility room for them to sleep.

by Mr Del Valle on May 3rd 2016

The property is very spacious and has been recently renovated, we are very impressed with very aspect of the house. The location is good too with a bakery and small grocery shop just a minute from the house, we will definitely come back and stay in this house again.

by Mrs Jackson on January 29th 2016

This was fantastic holiday, enjoyed equally by the whole family! A truly beautiful setting and lovely accommodation. Perfect for the dog too and a great base to explore the lakes! Can't wait to go again!

Fantastic Cottage, made an excellent base for our holiday. by ElaineGall on August 30th 2015

It is called a cottage but is more a house - with three double bedrooms, spacious bathroom, two lounges, utility room and large fully equipped kitchen. When I say "fully equipped" I mean it. All you need to bring is your food. The house was spotless and so comfortable. I dare not sit down on the sofa in the morning because I knew that if I did, I would not have wanted to get up again. The village has a shop within a minutes walking distance, a bakery and two pubs, The next village, Flookburgh, has a couple of shops, pubs, sandwich shop and fish and chip shop. I loved the walks in the area, and more importantly so did my dogs. A fantastic house, highly recommended.

by Mrs Green on August 23rd 2015

The house was really great and suited our family well, the reviews we have seen saying the owners think of everything is totally right! We liked the river running outside the window and the lovely view.

by Ms Parkin on July 19th 2015

We had and amazing stay here at the cottage. It was so clean and well equipped. The views were absolutely stunning and it is very well placed to visit all of the Lakes. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

by Mr Withers on February 27th 2015

High standard of accommodation and facilities, we were very very impressed when we walked in.

by Mrs Beach on December 29th 2014

The cottage was perfectly situated and had amazing views! It was great for a family with plenty of room to hang out or gather together. Local pub and shops were great. The cottage itself was welcoming and light, well laid out and comfortable. All my family loved it and would definitely book again.

Cosy Cark Cottage by tessWigan on December 2nd 2014

Cottage is spotless and spacious. The bedrooms and bathroom are much bigger than they look on the photographs and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you might need and the utility room is large. The owners kindly left a box of biscuits and a bottle of wine for us and readily came out to help us sort the central heating at 10pm on our first night. The train station is 100 metres from the cottage so great for trips to Ulverston or Grange.

by Mrs Borrows on November 26th 2014

Fantastic cottage, we will definitely book again.

Riverside by A FlipKey verified reviewer on August 9th 2014

Large comfy cottage in a lovely small village two good pubs dog friendly lovely walks good base for many places we had a lovely holiday

by Mr Murphy on June 29th 2014

This was our second stay in a year in beautiful Cark. Surrounded by stunning countryside, lovely walks, a train station and peace and quiet we feel that this is a perfect base for us. Riverside View is a really nice, clean, comfortable and large house with a to die for bathroom. We loved its location especially being able to feed the ducks from the hall window and ease of parking. We particularly liked the enclosed garden with bolted gate which made it safe for our dogs to be outside without us having to keep an eye on them. We will definitely be returning to this fantastic property for our next holiday.

by Mr McLaughlin on June 22nd 2014

Walks available nearby with good local amenities. The yard was a sun-trap in the afternoon!

by Mr Butler on June 2nd 2014

From the moment we arrived we could not have asked for anything better than the Riverside View, even if it means letting the secret out about this place being the best we have stayed in. Thank you we will be back soon!

by Mrs Morrison on May 4th 2014

Fabulous property in a great location by A FlipKey verified reviewer on December 2nd 2013

This cottage was much bigger than we expected and very well furnished. The bedrooms were large and there was more than ample room downstairs. Great location for touring the South Lakes region and less than 30 minutes drive to Bowness on Windermere. The local pub has a really good atmosphere with friendly staff and serves a number of real ales and good food. All in all a fantastic option with or without a pet.

by Mrs Hall on October 25th 2013

Lovely little village, nice walks and lovely local pubs.

What a fabulous house and views! by A FlipKey verified reviewer on September 24th 2013

This was one of the nicest holiday homes we have ever stayed in. Beautifully furnished and really spacious. The views across the countryside from the rear of the house are truly beautiful. I saw deer on several mornings. The river runs right under the windows and it was a joy to feed the ducks from the window. It is in a really good location for getting around the South Lakes. Perfect.

by Mr Blair on September 9th 2013

A marvellous cottage with nice big rooms, and plenty of amenities. The local area is beautiful, and we would recommend the local pub/restaurant the Engine.

Absolutely perfect for a friends weekend break, superb. by A FlipKey verified reviewer on February 8th 2012

We are a group of friends who have been going away together for a number of years and its the first time we have booked a cottage in the Lake District. We planned an early christmas break and it was everything and more that anyone could have wanted. The cottage was fantastic, bedrooms were well furnished and really cosy, bathroom was amazing and the views from the back of the cottage just breathtaking. The owners have thought of everything you will need for self catering, you don't need to take anything. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be going back again next year. Ideal for families, friends and couples. We all liked how homely the cottage felt and we settled in right away, really relaxing and just what we needed.

by Ms Shackleton on December 11th 2011

It really was fantastic and just what we wanted. We did take some things with us but didn't need anything, everything has been thought about. Thanks it was fantastic. Have already recommended it to family and friends.

by Mrs Thornley on November 14th 2011

Riverside View is very roomy and it felt like a family home not just a holiday let. Good location with shops, pub, walks and the train station all close by. A picturesque setting with lovely views from the back windows and a stream running directly behind the house with ducks and even the occasional kingfisher.

by Mrs Thornley on November 7th 2011

The house felt like a family home not just a holiday let and had every conceivable luxury. The owner was accessible, friendly and helpful but was not intrusive.
