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.

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 perfect in every way. The village was very quiet and we were able to relax and enjoy the short break, only wish it could have been longer. We would love to return in the future.

Mr Pickard
July 2012
The cottage is in a lovely location with easy road access to all places we wanted to visit. We particularly liked Cartmel race course which was just a 5 minute drive away. There were lots of other nice walks close by for us to take the dogs. The cottage was beautiful, very comfortable and well equipped. There was good food at the pub across the road and a shop straight across the road too for anything we needed. This was an excellent holiday.
Mrs Martin

The location was great, and the village lovely. Holiday was better then we expected so very pleased. Loved the utilities and loved everything about the mill. Even the river outside was soothing to hear at night.

Spacious, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. All that you needed was there. Train station 5 minutes away. Shop and pub 1 minute away - serves great food. Super situation and lovely property.
Mr Bowlby

The house felt as if it had freshly been decorated, with nicely co-ordinated furnishings in both the bedrooms. The welcome present of wine and biscuits were very nice, and the nespresso machine and pods were highly appreciated.

Just returned from a week at this lovely cottage, it is in a beautiful situation in the quiet little village of Cark with the river Eea running just in front of the house. Very comfy and modern interior. Very thoughtfully furnished and all that one needs to make it home from home. The wine and crisps on arrival were a special treat. The food at both the Engine Inn and the Rose and Crown was good and there are plenty of places to go nearby and lots of great walks. After over thirty years of staying in holiday cottages have to say this comes top of my list. Thank you for a great holiday.
May 2015
Quiet, peaceful location. Just metres from river Eea. Top quality furnishing and fittings. Within easy walking distance of. Engine Inn, good ale and CAMRA discount, and Rose and Crown, good food. Perfect base for Southern Lakes.
November 2014
This is a lovely ground floor apartment, extremely well furnished and equipped. Two well furnished and comfortable bedrooms, ideal for four adults. Large modern kitchen and dining area, large lounge and flat screen television, comfortable seating , all in all a very smart and cosy rental showing good taste by the owners. No dishwasher, but fridge and separate freezer which was very useful.
August 2014
The ground floor 2 bedroomed apartment was ideal for us and our two pooches. First visit to Lake District and its amazing. Apartment is well placed to explore the area. The apartment has all you need including a good utility room for muddy boots! And a fab coffee machine! Would have liked an enclosed garden for the pooches but that definitely didn't spoil anything. Cartmel has the best cream tea too! The pub on the hill did slightly better food that the Engine Inn over the road but both served good ale! We've had a fabulous week, despite a couple of rainy days and the apartment was part of that!! (A bottle of white wine was left for us too which was a nice touch).
August 2014
Beautiful apartment. Well equipped - even had a freezer which was great when we wanted to take meat home from an award winning butcher in Grange. Quiet. very good neighbours who are like your own personal tourist info guides. We didn't meet the owners until the day before we left when they happened to be out talking to the neighbours. Would definitely go there again. Our dogs were very welcome especially in the local pub across the road.
September 2012
Cottage more then we expected, was more like a 4 star hotel, location beautiful, people very friendly, local pub & shop all you needed. Dogs enjoyed it to. Great Base for touring. Will definitely be going back next year.
August 2013
we enjoyed the whole experience. good pub up the road. lots of places to visit. plenty of room in the cottage. facilities inside the cottage were excellent. good for disabled as its all on one level. the only downside was that we would have liked a little bit more outside space, as we had two dogs with us.
Mrs Hill
June 2016
The Old Mill is a fantastic holiday cottage. Every detail has been thought of, with the guest in mind. Idyllic setting. An excellent base to explore South and North Lakes. Will highly recommend.
Mrs Woodcock
June 2016
We have just returned from this stylish well laid out apartment. It was so clean and comfortable, especially the beds, which we very much appreciated after an active day exploring the lakes. It had everything you needed and the bonus of a utility room with a washer, separate dryer and a freezer so we could stock up on all the local goodies in the area to take home. A real home from home.
