The Cottages

Secluded two-bedroom non-smoking cottages one in its own grounds and one with walled garden in the quiet of Cartmel valley. Consistently positive feedback.

Which one to choose?

Read on below or see the Cottage Comparison Chart.

Woodland Cottage was a farmworker's cottage refurbished to a high standard; alone in farmland surrounded by fields with large walled garden and panoramic views to the south of Cartmel valley and Hampsfell to the east.
Broughton Bank Cottage was a derelict Lakeland cottage closer to our house, now completely renovated, hidden in a wooded garden above a tranquil pond.
There are tables in both gardens for dining outside: Broughton Bank Cottage has a bedrock bench and an oak table. Both cottages have been designed with high standards and sustainable principles in mind to ensure a fully relaxed stay.
Woodland Cottage's living area has an open fireplace while Broughton Bank has a wood burner (logs supplied) and there are two comfy sofas in each cottage. Being open plan, it's a cosy and accessible place to live in comfort. Both cottages have TV and DVD players, washer-driers and freezers.
Broughton Bank Cottage is on three levels with two flights of stairs, giving more privacy to each bedroom, and has two bathrooms.
Woodland Cottage has no stairs to negotiate and, being accessed directly from the parking area beside the building, is excellent on mobility issues: one 9 inch doorstep to the back door; smallest door is 27 inches wide. There's a utility room at the back with a quarry tile floor, making it ideal for walkers and guests with pets.
All personally maintained by the owners living nearby.
Bedrooms are furnished with character. Each cottage has one double bed and two single beds, full central heating and hot water and a super full mains pressure shower and bath. Broughton Bank Cottage's heating comes from 'green' ground source.
WiFi in both cottages
Cot and high chair available on request.
Deliveries (e.g. supermarket food deliveries) accepted by arrangement.
Lettings run from Friday, Monday or Tuesday for a minimum of 3 nights, though changeover days can be more flexible during quieter periods.
Well behaved pets are welcome at a small charge. They are accepted on the strict condition they are not allowed into bedrooms or onto the furniture.
