Holker Hall house and deer park are just a short walk from Cark. Cartmel is renowned for its racecourse, and the town is well served with a selection of shops, traditional pubs and a Michelin starred restaurant.

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.

This was a great location; the cottage was very comfortable and we would go back when we return to the area.

The bedrooms were well furnished, the location was good, near pubs and a shop. There was plenty of room to relax ( 2 living rooms , both with a TV/DVD.)

Had a wonderful couple of days with all the family. Felt really homely particularly once the fire was going! Everything you need. Kids loved it!

Stayed here with friends over the new year period. House was pleasant enough but dark and wouldn't say it felt friendly although our stay was pleasant enough. Had to go out on arrival to stock up on wood for the fire - okay but had we arrived late on wouldn't have been quite so easy about it. Been to quite a few houses over the years but this wasn't one I'd like to return to. Very basic accommodation but clean - the plus is the ease to get to places from Cark. Might just be me and the house may suit others better.

Pros Excellent location,beautiful area, railway station in village. Plenty of space for 6 adults, 5 children and two small spaniels. Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water. Cons Greeted by suspicious damp smell. Very 'bitty' decor with woodwork painted dark brown. One of the two ovens does not work. Fridge has been repaired with a DIY handle, is difficult to open and leaks puddles on to the floor. Vertiginous stone steps in the garden are a hazard for small children and the elderly.
