Riverside View description

Holiday home
Riverside View is a semi detached house overlooking the river on the edge of the village of Cark in Cartmel just two miles from Cartmel itself. With two twin bedrooms, one double with an ensuite and a folding bed available, the cottage can sleep up to seven people. The accommodation also includes a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen, a ground floor snug and a sitting room with a dining table and an electric fire. To the outside of the cottage is off road parking for one car, bike storage and an enclosed patio with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. With lovely views of the surrounding countryside and the river running alongside, Riverside View is a stunning cottage in a breathtaking part of the country.

The small village of Cark in Cartmel lies just a couple of miles from its more famous neighbour, Cartmel, in lovely Lakeland countryside. Cark is a stop on the Furness railway, and visitors to the village will enjoy a stroll to the local beach, or a quiet pint in one of the two friendly pubs. 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. There is so much to enjoy in the area, from country walks to boat trips on Windermere or a trip to the seaside resort of Grange over Sands. A great Lakeland base for your holiday.

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 cottage was perfectly situated and had amazing views! It was great for a family with plenty of room to hang out or gather together. Local pub and shops were great. The cottage itself was welcoming and light, well laid out and comfortable. All my family loved it and would definitely book again.

This was our second stay in a year in beautiful Cark. Surrounded by stunning countryside, lovely walks, a train station and peace and quiet we feel that this is a perfect base for us. Riverside View is a really nice, clean, comfortable and large house with a to die for bathroom. We loved its location especially being able to feed the ducks from the hall window and ease of parking. We particularly liked the enclosed garden with bolted gate which made it safe for our dogs to be outside without us having to keep an eye on them. We will definitely be returning to this fantastic property for our next holiday.

From the moment we arrived we could not have asked for anything better than the Riverside View, even if it means letting the secret out about this place being the best we have stayed in. Thank you we will be back soon!

Riverside View is very roomy and it felt like a family home not just a holiday let. Good location with shops, pub, walks and the train station all close by. A picturesque setting with lovely views from the back windows and a stream running directly behind the house with ducks and even the occasional kingfisher.

Mr Walker

The cottage was absolutely right for us as it had 2 lounges, a utility room and the bedrooms were all a good size. The views were fantastic and we could feed the ducks directly out of the window - super!!!

Fabulous property, lovely touch supplying a bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival! Great information in leaflets and a book of suggested activities in the area very useful. Also lots of cleaning stuff available and games and access to games and 2 tvs to keep kids and us happy on an evening! Lovely area with local shop very good and the chippy at Flookburgh and pubs with friendly locals giving us lots of info and advice.

A very comfortable, well appointed house, well situated (we could take our dogs for pleasant walks close by) and with a delightful view at the back. It was close, too, to some very beautiful parts of the Lake District.
Mrs Legge
September 2010
What a lovely spacious cottage. It was extremely clean and well decorated. Had a great week. The attention to detail made the week we had very special. The owners left lots of information about nearby attractions and walks etc. Plenty to do on a rainy day - great choice of maps, books and DVD's left in the cottage.
Mrs Morrison
August 2010
Lovely location, the house was just as described in the brochure. The kitchen had a large utility room off, which was perfect with our 2 dogs.
August 2015
It is called a cottage but is more a house - with three double bedrooms, spacious bathroom, two lounges, utility room and large fully equipped kitchen. When I say "fully equipped" I mean it. All you need to bring is your food. The house was spotless and so comfortable. I dare not sit down on the sofa in the morning because I knew that if I did, I would not have wanted to get up again. The village has a shop within a minutes walking distance, a bakery and two pubs, The next village, Flookburgh, has a couple of shops, pubs, sandwich shop and fish and chip shop. I loved the walks in the area, and more importantly so did my dogs. A fantastic house, highly recommended.
December 2014
Cottage is spotless and spacious. The bedrooms and bathroom are much bigger than they look on the photographs and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you might need and the utility room is large. The owners kindly left a box of biscuits and a bottle of wine for us and readily came out to help us sort the central heating at 10pm on our first night. The train station is 100 metres from the cottage so great for trips to Ulverston or Grange.
August 2014
Large comfy cottage in a lovely small village two good pubs dog friendly lovely walks good base for many places we had a lovely holiday
December 2013
This cottage was much bigger than we expected and very well furnished. The bedrooms were large and there was more than ample room downstairs. Great location for touring the South Lakes region and less than 30 minutes drive to Bowness on Windermere. The local pub has a really good atmosphere with friendly staff and serves a number of real ales and good food. All in all a fantastic option with or without a pet.
September 2013
house was well equipped and very clean. some of the bedroom furniture needs updating. limited outside space was a bit disappointing. location was fantastic, great for all south lakes attractions. easy walking distance to local pubs/restaurants and shops. also garden centre close by with coffee lounge.
September 2013
This was one of the nicest holiday homes we have ever stayed in. Beautifully furnished and really spacious. The views across the countryside from the rear of the house are truly beautiful. I saw deer on several mornings. The river runs right under the windows and it was a joy to feed the ducks from the window. It is in a really good location for getting around the South Lakes. Perfect.
June 2013
Fabulous spacious cottage in lovely village,Well equipped and everything thought of including wine and biscuits on arrival.Two pubs in village serving good food and dog friendly. Small village shop selling most things and very friendly staff. Enjoyed feeding the ducks from hall window as river is directly behind. We would definately return.

Riverside View is located in a lovely little village named Cark. It is a beautiful spacious property and has been kitted out with everything you could possibly want or need on a self catering holiday. We found the villagers very friendly and helpful especially in the shop and the local pub, I would definately recommend this lovely area of Cumbria, Cartmel in particular and it's beautiful Priory and Quaint pubs and Shops are a treat.We will be booking again in 2013 can't wait.
February 2012
We are a group of friends who have been going away together for a number of years and its the first time we have booked a cottage in the Lake District. We planned an early christmas break and it was everything and more that anyone could have wanted. The cottage was fantastic, bedrooms were well furnished and really cosy, bathroom was amazing and the views from the back of the cottage just breathtaking. The owners have thought of everything you will need for self catering, you don't need to take anything. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be going back again next year. Ideal for families, friends and couples. We all liked how homely the cottage felt and we settled in right away, really relaxing and just what we needed.
October 2011
The holiday house met all our requirements and more. Very comfortable and well equipped. Great bathroom. Lovely view from the kitchen and back bedroom over river and fields to fells, and well located near the station, village shop and pub.
