“Best holiday cottage ever!”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just returned from a week at this lovely cottage, it is in a beautiful situation in the quiet little village of Cark with the river Eea running just in front of the house. Very comfy and modern interior. Very thoughtfully furnished and all that one needs to make it home from home. The wine and crisps on arrival were a special treat. The food at both the Engine Inn and the Rose and Crown was good and there are plenty of places to go nearby and lots of great walks. After over thirty years of staying in holiday cottages have to say this comes top of my list. Thank you for a great holiday.

“Superb rental property, a great find!”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a lovely ground floor apartment, extremely well furnished and equipped. Two well furnished and comfortable bedrooms, ideal for four adults. Large modern kitchen and dining area, large lounge and flat screen television, comfortable seating , all in all a very smart and cosy rental showing good taste by the owners. No dishwasher, but fridge and separate freezer which was very useful.

“An excellent stay, in an excellent area, in an excellent apartment”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The ground floor 2 bedroomed apartment was ideal for us and our two pooches. First visit to Lake District and its amazing. Apartment is well placed to explore the area. The apartment has all you need including a good utility room for muddy boots! And a fab coffee machine! Would have liked an enclosed garden for the pooches but that definitely didn't spoil anything. Cartmel has the best cream tea too! The pub on the hill did slightly better food that the Engine Inn over the road but both served good ale! We've had a fabulous week, despite a couple of rainy days and the apartment was part of that!! (A bottle of white wine was left for us too which was a nice touch).

Liked best: Where the apartment was situated.
Liked least: Would have liked some basics in the kitchen i.e. washing up liquid, salt? Just a thought as we had to go and do shop before we could do anything. We were left a lovely bottle of white wine though!
