“lovely cottage for a quiet stay in the Lake District”

Lavender Cottage is well equipped and comfortable, it was ideal for our 9 night stay.

We were marginally surprised to find the cottage was not that close to Grange over Sands and that Cark-in-Cartmel station isn't very close to Cartmel, but that is really our fault in research. Flookburgh is quiet with a small friendly shop and post office and a couple of pubs .The cottage is tucked away off the road in a peaceful spot.

The beds were comfortable, hot water plentiful, the extractor fan in the bathroom was really noisy but could be switched off. Heating worked well, it was all in all very home-from-homely. Owner, Nina, was very helpful and easy to deal with. and i would be happy to recommend it.

“A wonderful place to base a Lake District Vacation.”

Lavender Cottage is a very comfortable place to stay while visiting the Lake District.
You are both near the beautiful Sands and the southern and central Lakes.
A car is necessary.
Flookburgh has a Great Sandwich Shop and Fish and Chips.
Great pub dining in Cark, The Rose and Crown and in Haverthwaite, The Anglers Arms!

Every detail in this cottage was perfect. Extremely thoughtfully equipped, immaculately clean home from home. Surprisingly spacious. It was so nice to have 2 lounges and the well cared for garden, BBQ / dining area.

Layout of the cottage is great. Get the best of the light in the upstairs rooms, where the v modern kitchen (equipped as at home) and 2 lounges are located. 2 tvs, 2 bath/shower rooms, and furnishings all very nice. There's a Haven park at the other end of the village, and we've had a look at what they charge there (it's a lot more than this cottage cost us) and there's simply no comparison. Would come back here again if staying in this part of the world.
