2 Cark House Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
2 Cark House is a quality ground floor apartment within a Georgian gentleman's residence in the village of Cark in Cartmel. The property has a double bedroom, a bathroom, a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room. Outside is off road parking for one car, and shared use of the riverside grounds. 2 Cark House is well placed for the amenities of Cark, and for heading further afield to Cartmel, Grange-over-Sands and the Lake District National Park.

Area
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.

Region
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.

Accommodation was perfect in every way.. Clean,comfortable,well furnished. Excellent location for exploring the region - coast , lakes and mountains. Locals very friendly and helpful. And having perfect weather for the 4 days topped it off.

NO TOASTER - when was the last time a self catering apartment didn't have a toaster? Found the instructions for a toaster, but NO TOASTER! Guess it broke, but owner could not be bothered to replace! VERY POOR. Spacious kitchen/ diner and lounge, BUT bedroom tiny. and bed very low making it difficult to get out without banging head on side wall. Would not book again for this reason.

The area is great with all the shops and pubs,eating houses you would require. can not fault property or the area. Great Lake district,locals .All very friendly. The Engine pub at the end of the round very good food.

Excellent Apartment and Location.. Only thing missing was wifi.
Mrs Andrews

Found the apartment was not quick to warm up, bedroom especially felt cold.. Also dehumidifier started making an awful noise at 4am and just kept going off and coming on again. No Wi-fi I think that could have been noted on website. Wi-fi is an important way of life today and most places tend to have it.

Lovely apartment, lovely setting, good artisan bakers and general dealer s in village.. And 2 pubs although winter opening hours when we there closed at lunch time so couldn't pop in for lunch. Plenty to see in surrounding area, good base to see the southern lakes district.

The apartment is great and the environment is exceptionally quiet.. A great place to unwind and relax away from the world and recharge your batteries. Cartmel is within walking distance and a short train journey to Ulverston is worth a visit (particularly if you want to visit the Laurel & Hardy museum). We also used local circular bus to go to Grange Over Sands and viewed the bay with a walk along the promenade (Buses currently don't run on a weekend). The people in Cark are very friendly and helpful, particularly at the local Londis store.

A good location for visiting a number of Houses and Gardens , in particular Holker Hall,Levens Hall & Sizergh Castle and if you are lucky(unlucky! ) racing at Cartmel.

Good accommodation.. Very pleasant dining-kitchen, well equipped. Easy walk to Rose and Crown which served tasty food. Interesting village and good situation for touring South Lakes.

A really comfortable apartment with a large very well equipped kitchen. The house is in an attractive village with two pubs a very short walk away. Cartmel, with good shops, more pubs and attractive Priory is a short drive, or pleasant walk. Grange-over-Sands nearby has lovely shops, and is worth a visit. A great place to visit, and re-visit.

Cark House is a lovely building set in well maintained landscaped grounds with the river running close. It is situated in a very peaceful setting. The cottage is very well equipped and had everything we required and more. The open plan kitchen, dining room was very pleasant to sit and dine in, which we did most nights of our holiday. It is very well placed for visiting the lakes and Grange over Sands which is close by.

The apartment was scrupulously clean. The spaciousness and uncluttered, elegant style gave a sense of tranquillity which, added to the quiet location, made relaxation very easy.

Location was ideal to visit nearby attractions, Cartmel, Grange-over-sands, Holker Hall and nearby Lakes. Accommodation was very good.

The apartment was so beautiful. Every room had such a different feel, I loved it. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and everywhere was wonderfully clean! Shower and bath were great and the bed was very comfortable. The surrounding area was idyllic, plenty of walks from the doorstep. A very short walk to local pub and shop, what more could you ask for?

House well positioned and equipped. A big plus for us was that the seating in lounge was comfortable (unlike some rentals we have had). Overall a nice place to be based.

This apartment, in a beautiful spot, has too many faults to make it top quality. On the plus side it's in a great location in a nice old building with a good pub a short stroll away. There are some good local walks and some superb walks a short drive away. The lovely old village of Cartmel, with its beautiful ancient abbey, is only a couple of miles away, the beautiful Holker Hall is within walking distance and the old fashioned and friendly seaside town of Grange over Sands is about a 10 minute drive away. It is also easy to explore the area by train as there is a fairly frequent, though not entirely reliable service all along the coast of Morcambe Bay and up as far as Carlisle, with the station just a short walk away. The apartment was disappointing though. The kitchen is large, beautifully fitted out and very well equiped. The bathroom is also good, with loads of instant hot water. But the lounge is stark, with a grubby and fairly tatty carpet and was very cold during daylight hours, with the heating times restricted and no access to an over-ride or additional heat source. It was really rather miserable on a cold, very wet early autumn day. The bedroom is simply horrible though, with a cheap and squeaky bed base topped by an even cheaper unsupportive mattress and cheap bedding. We left a day early as we could not bear the thought of trying to sleep in it for one more night, and we both needed physio treatment for back pain when we got home. It's a shame - this apartment could be a real winner with a bit more thought and investment in guests' comfort. Directions to find the key were also laughably poor. We were lucky to be able to ask a resident of a nearby house, otherwise we would have not been able to get access at all.
