Drakes Cottage description

Holiday home
Drakes Cottage is a single-storey cottage in a courtyard setting with a handful of other cottages, less than a mile from popular Cartmel. The cottage has a double bedroom, a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC, a galley kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside is a shared courtyard, and off road parking for one car. Drakes Cottage is just over a mile from Cartmel's shops, pubs and restaurants, and makes a great base for enjoying the peninsula and Lake District beyond.

Renowned for being the prettiest village in the Lake District, the small town of Cartmel in South Lakeland is a wonderful, picturesque holiday destination. At the heart of this thriving community is the Priory Church, one of the finest ecclesiastical buildings in the north of England with its gatehouse still in use as the entrance to the settlement itself. Amidst cobbled streets and pretty streamside walks, are a range of quaint gift shops, antique shops, traditional pubs that serve real ale and the nationally renowned Michelin-starred restaurant L'Enclume. A well-loved destination for hill-walkers, the region is full of excellent trails through stunning, unspoilt countryside. In addition, there is the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition, Lakeland Motor Museum and Hunt Racecourse all in the near vicinity. With Windermere and Grange-over-Sands only a few minutes away, there's plenty for everyone to do.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The village of Cartmel which is just one mile gentle (level) walk away. And the cottage is on the really beautiful Aynesome Manor Park. They also make dogs very welcome. The site manager, Mick, was very friendly and helpful. The open fire drew really well and was supplied with a starter-pack of wood and kindling for the first night. There are some really good artisan food and crafts in Cartmel and the Priory is a building of great peace and beauty in its own right.

A great little cottage set in a peaceful development in the grounds of a hotel. A good location for exploring the Lakes and the beautiful village of Cartmel is just over a mile away.

All the scenic places and beautiful villages. Friendly people and the slow pace of the area in comparison To where we live. Great pubs and good food.

Very friendly and an ideal location to explore. Fell foot was a favourite and cartmel is lovely too. Made our first holiday with our dog much easier due to places the dog could go. Beautiful grounds with stream and ducks and the cottage thoughtfully provided for our stay.
