Luxury Grade II listed self-catering accommodation in the centre of historic Cartmel village on the edge of the Lake District National Park.

Enchant your loved ones and plan your next big holiday on the cusp of the Lake District National Park, choosing this exquisite accommodation as the base for your adventures. Cartmel is possibly best known for its superb scenery and impressive gastronomic reputation due to the excellent restaurants and renowned cheese shop you can discover from your doorstep. Sleeping ten guests across five bedrooms along with two canine companions, you’ll find plenty of socialising and relaxing spots to enjoy quality time with your loved ones, whether you are settling down for al fresco meals or preparing for a family film night complete with snacks and hot chocolate.

Packed with character and boasting beamed ceilings, lavish furniture and stylish decor, the property will welcome you home with a crackling wood burner and a relaxing ambience. Curl up with your morning coffee in the lounge and watch the embers glow, heading through to the elegant dining room when it is time to eat. Your resident chef has a range of equipment and gadgets to cook up a storm in the kitchen, and there’s even a handy utility room to take care of any laundry needs. At bedtime, there are five bedrooms and a variety of washing facilities across the first and second floor to suit any party make-up, including two bathrooms and a pretty king-size bedroom complete with its own en-suite. On balmy evenings unwind in the garden with a glass of chilled wine, sizzling up a few treats on the BBQ. Parking is subject to availability on the village square, but there is a small car park nearby with reasonable charges.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It’s 9 miles away and has a popular pub and walking trails to Whitbarrow Scar. For the golfers, you’ll have two courses to choose from within 5 miles, but you’ll find lots to keep you active thanks to the footpaths leading through the sweeping fells leading from your accommodation.

What a fantastic cottage and location. Ford House was everything we hoped for and more. We had the most wonderful time. Judy, the owner, even left a sticky toffee pudding for us. Thank you so much for our fantastic weekend.

Lovely house, well equipped, nice dining room and comfortable bedrooms. Garden needed some tlc but that may be due to COVID restrictions. Great location in the heart of the village which is charming and some wonderful walks without needing to use the car.
