Wheelhouse Cottage

Cartmel, Lake District
Luxury Holiday Home

This beautiful holiday cottage built some 200 years ago is ideally situated in the heart of a picturesque Lake District village Cartmel and is perfect for families or friends and comes with an amazing hot tub.

The front door opens into a large hall, which steps down to the welcoming living areas. With plump sofas, a roaring open fire, exposed ceiling beams and cosy rugs, the sitting room is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day outside.

The kitchen is light and airy with a door leading out to the walled garden, while the dining space beyond has French doors opening onto the riverside patio at the other side of the house.

Upstairs there are two comfortable king-size bedrooms, both beautifully decorated with antique furnishings and charming ornaments.

The bedrooms share a stylish contemporary bathroom with shower over bath.

Outside, to the front of the property, a small terraced patio area overlooks the river and meadow beyond. To the rear of the cottage, there a little walled garden with table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals.

Here you will also find a luxurious hot tub, perfect for soothing those achy muscles after a long day on foot. A small iron bridge crosses over to the opposite side of the river where there is a small private riverside bank for enjoying peaceful picnics surrounded by nature.

Roadside parking by the property and 1 free pass for the village car park supplied.

Cartmel is a popular and pretty village with traditional lime washed and stone built houses, shops and pubs. There’s plenty to discover in the immediate area, including a Norman priory, a beautiful river, and the popular Cartmel Races, home of the smallest steeplechase racecourse in the country.

Located on the peninsula, Cartmel nestles just six miles south of Lake Windermere. There are plenty of easy walks from the village: you could climb Hampsfell with its panoramic views across towards Morecambe Bay, then descend down to Grange Over Sands or explore the tracks running through Eggerslack Woods. Among the many other highlights of this stunning area are the Grizedale Forest, the vibrant town of Kendal and the wonderful Fell Foot Park.
