New chic holiday cottage in Cartmel

New for Cumbria and for Cartmel No 1Tower House. What a fabulous address in one of Cumbria’s oldest streets and right in the heart of Cartmel.

Just off the medieval village square through the historic and hugely photographed arch lies this luxurious holiday apartment. Sleeping two, what better place for a romantic weekend getaway, visit to Cartmel Races or a full week holiday exploring Cartmel Village, South Cumbria and the Lake District?

The sumptuous décor befits the historic building which also has everything required to assist with tech such as free Wi-Fi, a Sony music player and full kitchen gadgets and appliances. Perfectly quiet, No 1 Tower House leads out into the heart of Cartmel Village and really once parked, the car needn’t be used again and Cartmel Races can be walked to.

On the doorstep is of course foodie heaven. Cartmel is the gastronomic centre of Cumbria with four pubs serving high quality food, cafes and delis and not to be forgotten, restaurants including Simon Rogan’s 2 Michelin star L’Enclume and his bistro Rogan’s. The cheese shop in Unsworth’s Yard is well worth a visit too and choosing to stay self catering ensures there is a fridge ready to become brimming full of some of the wonderful artisan cheeses on sale there.

But it’s not just all about the food in Cartmel. Thousands of people flock to Cartmel for horse racing at Cartmel Racecourse. With meets during the racing season, the horse racing community descend on this village. Year after year the attendance rises and this in turn attracts high profile jockeys and horses. Even those not into horse racing can’t help but enjoy the event in a location such as this soaking up the buzz.

Walking is right from the doorstep too like the Cartmel Peninsula with its rolling hills and views towards the Lake District fells. It is the ideal place for walking with many footpaths and bridleways or a quick hop on the bus, train or in the car and the Lake District and especially Lake Windermere is there to experience. No 1 Tower House is available to book exclusively from The Lakeland Cottage Company by visiting, 


Romantic Lake District cottage given stunning redecoration

Tucked away in part of the Lake District where peace and tranquillity rule and where there is still the chance to get away from it all is Shepherd’s Nook.
Shepherd’s Nook is a true rural retreat in the Kentmere Valley located around four miles north of Staveley making it ideal for exploring Windermere, Kendal and the equally as unspoilt area of Mardale and Haweswater.

Offering 4 star graded accommodation, Shepherd’s Nook is a real romantic bolthole for two but that also allows a small breed four legged companion to stay. It had just undergone a complete refurbishment for the 2017 season making it an even more enticing place to stay. The décor is stylish, tasteful with a huge focus on relaxation. Imagine being able to look out of uninterrupted countryside and fells through garden and grounds. Relax beside the centre focal point Aga and cook up some treats using the local produce available from nearby Staveley. The cottage is perfect for holidays or short breaks whatever time of the year being cosy and warm when required.

With Staveley not far away, there is the choice to dine at the lovely Eagle & Child or perhaps the Hawkshead Brewery Tap or Wilf’s Café. Staveley is perfect for provisions for dining at the cottage too, many guests don’t want to leave it! Walks, well the cottage is located so that a car needn’t be used in all honesty once arrived. Choose a slow amble along the River Kent or embark on a more challenging but very rewardable walk across to Haweswater, the most remote body of water of its size in the Lake District.
