Experience the ultimate getaway in the heart of Cartmel, the renowned foodie haven. This stunning loft conversion with a spa hot tub and second bedroom annexe offers a unique and intimate retreat. Immerse yourself in a vibrant village ambience with four traditional inns, Michelin-starred restaurants and famous racecourse. Explore the quaint streets, stream-side walks and 12th-century Priory. And with lake, fell and coastal walks handy, this gorgeous Cartmel Loft property has it all.

The Space

This gorgeous property welcomes you with a large entrance hall, perfect for storing coats and muddy boots (and for flopping down after your walk). The stairs lead up to a spectacular open-plan space; lounge, kitchen and dining areas furnished to the highest design spec. The uber-stylish kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance; the high ceiling and roof-lights create a bright and airy ambiance.

Kick back on the opulent leather sofa to view the Smart TV with Sonos sound system. Or ‘crash’ onto the bean-bag chair with a book. Or perhaps you’re ready to luxuriate in The Spa? Then slip out of your monogrammed robe and step into your private romantic hot tub for a truly special and invigorating experience. The four-person hot tub can be found in the relaxing spa room that features real stone and rustic timber finishes. Grab your Bluetooth speaker to create your own place to enjoy the vibes and unwind.

When you’re done and its time for bed, just retreat to your beautifully decorated bedroom featuring a super king-size bed and dressing room, next to the sumptuous bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower.

A few steps across the courtyard, you’ll find the former village “lock up”- a bijou, quirky annexe with a fascinating history. This is where the second bedspace is ingeniously styled into the former village jail, listed as a building of special architectural and historical interest. The Jail bedroom has its own wet-room, wardrobe space, kettle and mini fridge.

Outside, you can unwind in the courtyard area. With tables, chairs and patio heater, its a great space for a glass of wine before (and after) exploring the range of eateries within walking distance. For added convenience, there’s a Utility Room equipped with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The Neighbourhood

Cartmel is often held to be the quaintest of all Lakeland villages with its cobbled pavements, medieval arch, heritage buildings, delightful stream-side walks and 12th-century Priory; a captivating destination that entices visitors with its charm and natural beauty.

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere and indulge in the array of charming shops, four traditional pubs and Simon Rogan’s renowned Michelin starred restaurants: a treat for food enthusiasts. There’s a wine snug, microbrewery and cheese shop all gathered around a lovely courtyard space often featuring live music and pizzas on summer weekends. And with the famous national hunt racecourse just steps away, you can soak up the excitement of nine race days a year and enjoy fun-filled days out.

Its difficult to tear yourself away from this romantic property with its hot tub and charming village ambience but there are many other attractions nearby: Levens Hall, Sizergh Castle and Holker Hall -each with a spectacular garden. There’s the Campbell Bluebird exhibition, the Lakeland Motor Museum and of course Lake Windermere (with breathtaking views and activities for outdoor enthusiasts); all are within 15 minutes’ drive.
