“Lovely cottage and great location ”
Reviewed 26 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great time in this very well equipped and comfortable cottage. We were 5 people and 2 dogs, all had plenty of room. We loved the views from the back and the cosy fire in the front room.

Cartmel has some nice restaurants, pubs and cafés including the Pig and Whistle where we had a very nice meal. Cartmel sticky toffee pudding is highly recommended, we even bought some to take back with us. Flounders fish and chip shop in Flookburgh is also recommended.

We visited Muncaster and Sizergh Castle which were both very interesting. Muncaster also allows dogs around the gardens and grounds providing they are on a lead. Don't forget Sizergh farm shop on your way out!

Thank you for a great stay, looking forward to our next holiday in the Lakes.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just returned from a weeks stay at this excellent house. We were 2 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room for us all. Very comfy and clean. Only thing I would suggest is a flask and plastic crockery would be a great addition for taking out on picnics
Im writing this review as I forgot to sign the guest book.

“Great base for walking, biking South Lakes, Morecambe Bay”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Allithwaite is handy for Cartmel, Ulverston, Kendal, Barrow and Lancaster.
There are fell walks, Lakes, bay walks and rides all within easy reach.
The cottage is clean, up to date, well maintained and easy to live in and use.
I liked using the train at Kents Bank and Cark for journeys round to Lancaster, Morecambe, Ulverston and Barrow.
Today I took the train to Ulversyton and walked up Hoad Hill to the Barrow monument. It looks like a lighthouse. Panoramic views over the hills, bay and town.
Fat Flour bakery down the hill in Cark, 8 am to 1pm, and Friday and Saturday evenings for pizzas, is good for interesting bread. I especially enjoyed the honey and walnut loaf this time.

Exceedingly nice cottage style terrace only 2 miles from Cartmel, very well equipped with everything you could need. Can't fault the place, will return with friends in the future.

“Comfortable and well-equipped”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely house, well-equipped and beautifully presented. The bedrooms are lovely and the twin-bedded loft conversion particularly charming. Havins a separate lounge was a bonus and the beautifully extended kitchen/diner with its views over the countryside is a delightful living space,

Parking outside was never a problem, though Allithwaite's lack of footpaths and plenty of throug traffic makes exploring on foot a little alarming. No real shop so need to go to Grange for provisions, But a great base to explore the southern lake lands and the Cartmel and Furness peninsulas,

Pheasant Innn deserves its reputation for good food,

“Well laid out and clean property with lots of extras”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed here with our family; a 7 and 5 year old and a dog. The children loved the attic room, and we loved the kitchen (which had everything we needed) with the gorgeous views across the fields over breakfast, and the utility room was fab for use after walks, drying and storing shoes etc. We found Allithwaite not great for dog walks, as very few public open spaces to let the dog off the lead, found a nice park along the railway line on the way into Grange however. The beds were comfortable, linen very clean and fresh, bathrooms nicely laid out. We always drove into the Lakes to get a decent walk, Orrest Head in Windermere perfect for the children, and Muncaster castle great for taking the dog and entertaining the children. We had such a bad week weather wise, storm weather warnings, hail, snow and rain, but we don't feel like we missed out in any way as we found plenty to do in the Lakes and nearby to have a great time. Our only personal downside was that we left ALL the children's Easter eggs hidden on top of a wardrobe on Easter Saturday before actually giving them to them! Ooooops! Will triple check before leaving a rental next time!

“Beautiful property with everything you could need.”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed for a week with family and pet dog, I was very impressed with this home from home. It had everything you could need with the owner taking a lot of trouble with attention to detail. Amazing kitchen with fantastic view, comfy beds and lovely master bedroom with en-suite and log burner in the lounge. Having wifi was the icing on the cake, I could happily move in! Will definitely use this property again when visiting the area.
