Coachman's Cottage was the perfect escape for my friends and I.. It's located in a lovely quiet area, very well equipped with everything we needed for the weekend, including books and board games. We're looking forward to making another visit in summer to enjoy the beautiful garden by the pond.
It's great that the cottage is on a managed site as there was a warden on site who was really helpful when we found the heating was not working properly..
The peace and quietness and it is extremely well equipped.. Ran out of logs halfway through the second evening and unable to find anymore so bought some the following day.Would it be reasonable to have a small stock on site somewhere. All in all a great few days relaxation.
This is a very comfortable cottage full of character in a very attractive and peaceful location with easy access to the main attractions of the Lake District.. We would definitely come back.
This is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful setting. The cottage has all the amenities you could need and some nice extra touches . It is a 10minute walk into Cartmel for the pubs and shops . We did an amazing walk over to Grange over sands and back
We ate in the Royal oak and the Kings arms and both were fantastic
I would recommend anyone to stay here it is fantastic

A beautiful cottage.
Worth every penny.
Just perfect in every way ! !
The well equipped cottage is situated in a lovely, peaceful location..
Lovely holiday cottage in a quiet corner of Cartmel.. Everything that you need is in this cottage for a short stay. Longer with children would be a slight problem drying the clothes.
Lovely helpful neighbours around the park.
A lovely cottage .. Made too feel very welcome . Milk in fridge heating on for when we arrived . It had everything you needed just a brilliant cottage .
Lovely cottage in a great location.. 15 mins walk into Cartmel.Relaxing weekend, can't wait to go back! Thank you.
Excellent relaxing accommodation with all comforts possible..
The house was excellent but the weather was not kind.. This caused flooding on one of the access roads. We left this information for any following guests.
This is the third time we've booked the Coachmans' Cottage and we will certainly book it again in the future! It is wonderfully peaceful and secluded and just perfect for us.
Great cottage in a beautiful location.. My husband and I were visiting this part of the country for the first time and were not disappointed, stunning countryside and as the weather was kind we were able to do lots of walking. Lots of eating places in the picturesque village of Cartmel which is just over a mile from the cottage. Would definitely recommend the cottage to friends.
Excellent property, lovely location, very helpful owner.. The car parking spaces allocated to the properties are far too small and fortunately the owner, Bridget was able to guide us to an alternative parking area within sensible walking distance to the cottage.
Absolutely wonderful cottage. perfect in every way. Ideally placed for exploring the lakes. An easy walk into Cartmel and good food offered in the local .pubs.
Many good circular walks from the door, 4mls circuit to Holker Hall and also Grange, so no need to use the car!
Booking our next stay at The Coachmans and looking forward crossing more walks off the list.
My husband and our adult son and daughter only stayed for 3 days, we wished it was longer! The Coachmans was absolutely perfect. So homely! The furnishings and fittings are of exceptional quality. The bedrooms spacious and beds so comfy. Everything thought of.throughout the cottage. A perfect setting for exploring, yet off the beaten track. Plenty of safe parking available on site. Cartmel is a short walk away and great for eating out. Plenty of walks from the door, many 4mls circular, we did the walk to Holker Hall and also the fell walk to Grange, which takes you through the golf course. We're looking forward to returning and continuing the local walks! Can't wait to stay again and it'll be for longer next time!
After staying in May for a week we came home and booked back up for another relaxing break at the cottage. We walked this time to Holker Hall through the racecourse which took around 2 hours, great walk and plenty of information if you fancy of other lovely walks in the area. The cottage has everything you need including mini torches which were very handy this time with the dark nights as we made our way back from the village. What more can I say, this place is a gem with everything you need.....looking forward to booking up again for next year. Thank you xx
Everything was perfect in the Coachman's Cottage, as we are getting on in years, we found everything to a good standard and things very accessible.
Coachman's Cottage is very cosy, well equipped, comfortable and warm. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need. The bathroom has a good shower and a bath with plenty of hot water. Linen and towels were of high quality. The beds are very comfortable. Parking is secure and the seating area outside is delightful. The cottage is situated in a beautiful setting; the surroundings are idyllic. We thought this was an excellent place to stay, would highly recommend it and would definitely return.
We have had the most delightful week in this perfect cottage. My father who is 87 really enjoyed his 3 night stay at the cottage before we took him back home to Newcastle. He found the cottage great as he has limited walking ability and is looking forward to returning next year. The cottage has everything you need what more can I say, so thankful of the hairdryer as mine blew up on the third day!!. I took some supplies with us and it was nice to see a pint of milk in the fridge on our arrival and tea bags, sugar etc if we needed. A fantastic selection of maps and information leaflets to look through and also a great selection of books and dvd's.......we did watch the Vicar of Dibley, thank you. On the site between two lodges just to the left of the cottage is a lovely orchard with two tables where you can enjoy the sun late into the day and great if you have children so they can run around. A lovely 10 minute walk if that into Cartmel village where we enjoyed evening meals at the Royal Oak which has a huge beer garden and the Kings Arms with seating out front. The Cavendish just off the main square is also very nice and they have tables out front and back. A lovely selection of shops and of course you must get the Cartmel sticky toffee pudding!! Well all I can say is thank you Bridget for a wonderful cottage and we have just booked up to go again this October to spend our 2nd wedding anniversary at the cottage.......
The cottage is in a fabulous location and so restful. We are booking today to go again! This is a little gem in the lakes.
We were so excited to stay at this cottage. The cottage itself was perfect for us, as it is all on one level and easily navigated. The living area was extremely comfortable and homely, which made our stay very enjoyable. The bedrooms were comfortable and high quality bedding was provided along with lovely towels. A top notch holiday cottage - highly recommended.
I stay din this cottage with my Grandmother and friend. We were so impressed from the outset at the presentation yet homeliness of this cottage. There was everything you could possibly need along with the beauty of a historic country cottage. The property was very easy to navigate for my grandmother as it was all on one level.
I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a holiday cottage in close proximity to the Lake District.
We stayed at Coachman's Cottage for half term. Excellent all round from cottage to location. We found the cottage was central to all the attractions we wanted. We were never stuck for anything to do. The cottage is 5 star with everything you could possibly think of. A home from home. We are already planning another break here in the summer.
Just came back from a really lovely week away in the lakes. This gorgeous cosy cottage is perfectly situated to go exploring. Stayed with our daughters 5 and 2 and they loved it here too. Couldn't ask for any better, definitely a 5* service, is home from home not one negative point. Will definitely be staying again. Recommended to family and friends. Didn't want to leave.
Coachman's Cottage was cosy and extremely comfortable. Very high standard throughout.
Location was quiet restful but close to Cartmel which is a real hub for good food friendly service.
Many walks to enjoy in the immediate area.
Cottage location excellent if you want a restful New Year's break away from the hustle bustle of daily life!
We loved it!
Had a very relaxing stay and we will stay again.
The cottage was the perfect retreat for a quiet week of relaxation. Coachman's Cottage had everything we could have asked for and it was perfect. I would definitely book this cottage again and recommend to any of my family and friends who are looking for somewhere to unwind.
The cottage is without doubt one of the best, if not the best that we have stayed at. There was tourist information and OS maps as well as short guided walk maps ready for us to use. The kitchen is excellent; all new with good quality cutlery and dishes. The double bed is really comfortable and I have to say that the pillows are good and give a good nights sleep to anyone who suffers from a bad neck as I do. The bathroom again has a feel that its just been finished and made ready just for your visit, the shower is easy to operate, its really good.
Coachman's Cottage was warm, cosy and friendly with every little detail thought about. There was everything you could think of provided and it was the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in during any British holiday. The area was close to all the places we wanted to visit too!
So much to do in the area but yet a quiet corner of the Lakes. Had excellent road links to the rest of the Lakes and Cumbria. Great food and drink locally. A cosy and clean cottage to return to, with a particularly good TV and Internet connection. Had a really varied and quality collection of books, games and DVDs too, so no worries about the weather! Loved the ducks on the pond and the well kept gardens, lovely to stroll through after tea.
A friendly place to stay. Beautiful varied walks right from the door, with good food and drink a short walk away too. Very good road network to explore the rest of the lakes and cumbria.
The cottage was clean, well equipped and very comfortably furnished. It is also warm and cosy with a very good tv and good Internet connection. There is also an interesting selection of board games, books and DVDs.
A beautiful cottage in beautiful gardens with ducks in the pond to feed. The beds were so comfy and the sofas very cosy too. Will be going back sometime.
Absolutely loved this cottage - it was warm, cosy and so welcoming. The owners have thought of everything. The family games especially were a big hit. Had a wonderful stay and would recommend to friends.
First class Cottage up to the very highest standard. Everything you could ever want or require was provided!
