Beautiful Cottage nestled in natural woodland, near Cartmel Village
A former derelict stone building, originally thought to have been a coal house, has been spectacularly renovated to offer very comfortable accommodation with its own drive and secluded raised woodland garden, making it a really picturesque location all the year-round.
The back door of the cottage is just a few yards from the owners' home but still feels entirely separate as, through the front door, it has its own garden and is not overlooked: you are assured a genuinely peaceful and relaxing setting for your holiday home.
Green Tourism Gold Award:
The cottage has been designed on sustainable lines: there are solar panels on-site, and the underfloor heating comes from the ground source. Even the materials used have been sourced sustainably: a dying pine tree was felled, cut into planks, stored and dried naturally over time and has been used to make all the doors, skirting boards and most of the stairs. Floors are made from rich walnut wood.
