“Idyllic house in a beautiful and peaceful location”
Reviewed 10 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This house sits high upon a hill with wonderful views across to Grange-over-Sands. There does not appear to have been any expense spared in the quality of the fixtures and fittings. The kitchen was very well equipped with every utensil you could ask for and cooking a meal was not a chore as you have a huge space in which to work and a lovely view from the kitchen window. If I had this kitchen at home I would probably do a lot more cooking.

Outside is a marvelous summer house in which we spent some of our evenings playing board games - and there is no need to go back into the house to obtain a second bottle of wine as the summer house is equipped with a fridge!

We particularly liked the 'upside down' aspect of the house - the lounge, dining room and kitchen are on the 1st floor, thereby ensuring you have the best views of the surrounding countryside.

The house is full of character and the layout is very interesting - it has 2 staircases and I have to admit to almost getting lost within the first 5 minutes of arrival! There is a second small sitting room on the ground floor so that anyone can have some quiet time if they wish.

Cartmel itself is a lovely little village and I would recommend a visit to the Priory. We ate at the Pig and Whistle and the Cavendish Arms. Both served good quality food, but I would say the Cavendish has the edge.

This is a great location for exploring the Lake District and is within very easy driving distance of the South Lakes. One slight word of warning - do be careful on the narrow roads approaching the house. We were fortunate enough not to have to pass anyone as the roads are extremely quiet, however, I would advise driving slowly especially near the bends.

Due to the remote location your phone signal can be a bit intermittent, however, the wi-fi works fine.

Simon, the owner, responded promptly to my queries and provided information about the local amenities in the surrounding areas prior to our visit.

If you choose to book this house for your holiday I cannot imagine that you would be disappointed. I rarely write reviews but I was so impressed with this house and I would highly recommend it to anyone

“What a weekend!”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Wow, what a gorgeous property! Stunning views and surroundings. The house is incredibly comfortable and cosy. We were lucky with the weather and so we were able to make the most of the lovely garden. The rooms are all very spacious rooms and there are lots of loos (always important!) Even with 10 adults and two dogs we never felt crowded. There was a lot of opportunity nearby for great dog walks and it's close to the seaside too. The only reason that this lovely place hasn't got 5 stars from us is the lack of any facility for recycling. I do appreciate that the waste disposal has to be privately contracted but I do feel that in the current climate this could do with being addressed.

“First Class”
Reviewed 30 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Cartmel Hill can be summed up in three words - Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic.
Fantastic Accommodation - High wow factor. Furnishings and decoration clearly chosen with care. Stunning beams and stone work. Well appointed, kitchen with views from the sink - highlight for me! Welcoming, relaxing ambience. Cosy and homely despite its vast size.
Fantastic Location - Idyllic, peaceful but with easy access to M6 and A 590 and all that this road has to offer. Superb views, walks or just looking out from the windows of the house watching the sheep graze up and down the field adjoining the garden.
Fantastic Vacation - loved every minute. Cartmel village is a stunner! A wealth of riches here. Cartmel Village shop - in there every day. Coffee shops. Gourmet dining possible, plus three very good,friendly pubs. Cheese shop - not to be missed.
the Priory is fascinating, and well worth a visit.
Thank you Simon for once again providing us with the vital pause button in our busy lives.

Well Amelia, I think you’ve been my favourite guests for quite some time but now I think you’ve written my favourite review of all time.

Thanks Amelia and family. It means even more to Kate the housekeeper and myself as I know you too have your own holiday properties so you know what hard work goes into trying to get everything ‘right’.

I’m also so pleased that you finally got to stay in 1 of our Cartmel properties as I knew you’d fall in love with Cartmel, as of course I have.

I look forward to welcoming you back again when you need that much needed break and some quality, relaxing time.

“What a fantastic cottage ”
Reviewed 25 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

All I can say is wow. This cottage was breathtaking including the views. We had 9 adults staying in this cottage and not once did anyone feel in anyone’s way. Loads of room, bedrooms were amazing. Spotlessly clean everything you needed. Bathrooms were outstanding.
I like the upside down living accommodation, it made sense when you saw the views right over to Morecambe bay. Lovely outside sitting area including a stunning gazebo which was heated and had lighting a fridge and plenty of seating. It was covered in case it got chilly on a night. My daughter and niece used this space to meditate and chill away from the noisy family. We have been to three of this companies cottages now and not once have we been disappointed.
Thank you again Simon for a wonderful and memorable stay.
