Elegant property for six guests located in the sought-after village of Cartmel, just a few miles south of the Lake District National Park and 6.5 miles from Lake Windermere.

This property enjoys a prime location right on the village square in picturesque Cumbrian village of Cartmel. Cartmel has become somewhat of a destination for keen foodies, as it is home to a number of well-regarded restaurants, as well as some fantastic specialist food shops. Just outside the village, Cartmel racecourse is home to the UK’s shortest steeplechase and has a full diary of interesting events when there are no race meetings on. Some 2.5 miles south of the village, the seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands is a lovely place to spend the day exploring the attractions on the town’s famous promenade. To the north lies the beautiful Lake District, with the largest of the lakes, Lake Windermere lying just 6.5 miles from the property.

Stepping inside this handsome property, guests will pass through a hallway before coming to the chic lounge/kitchen/diner, an elegant room which is finished in stylish muted colours, a theme which continues seamlessly throughout the property. The lounge area, to the front of the room, has comfortable seating from which guests can enjoy the TV and music from the iPod dock. The kitchen/diner at the other end of the room, there is a large dining table and all the equipment that guests will need to prepare their favourite dishes including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Stairs lead to the first floor where two of the property’s three bedrooms are located., all three of which offer their own TV/DVD. The first of these is an attractive king-size room with window seats and plenty of storage space for hanging clothes. The second bedroom, meanwhile is another double, whilst the third bedroom, a super-king room, can be found in the attic space on the second floor and can be made up as a twin room on request. There are two sleek shower rooms, one on the first floor and one on the second, each offering a shower and WC, whilst there is also a separate bathroom on the second floor, a fantastic sanctuary-like room with a WC and a free-standing bath which sits on a raised platform under the exposed beams. Please be aware that the second-floor rooms are located in the eaves of the property, and therefore have sloping ceilings and some reduced head-height.

Outside, there is a charming walled patio garden to the rear of the property, which with its garden furniture, chimenea, and a gas BBQ, is a wonderful space for relaxing into the evenings, over drinks and alfresco meals. There is roadside and a pay and display car park available in the village.

Old Bank Cottage is located right in the centre of Cartmel. We spent a long weekend here to celebrate a special family birthday. It is perfectly located a very short walk from the Michelin starred Rogan restaurants. The cottage is beautifully decorated in neutral shades and has a well equipped kitchen. There are some lovely touches such as scented Read morecandles throughout and bath salts by the freestanding bath. I would highly recommend! Hide

Great location if you're a foodie. Lots of places to eat out in despite Carmel being quite a small town/village. Very quiet as well, cottage on main street but next to no traffic noise at night.
