“stunning! perfectly appointed property equipped to highest standard”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The experience of our stay at the racecourse cottage started with very easy booking and excellent communication with the owner.
On arrival you are blown away by the high standards of fixtures and fittings with perfectly appointed rooms.
The 3 bedrooms were beautiful and the bathrooms and sanitaryware knocked spots off many of the boutique hotels we have stayed in around the world.
The living and dining rooms are large, comfortable and toasty warm with the added bonus of a log burner and basket full of logs!
The kitchen was again equipped to the highest standard
TV & music system/wifi with docking system for the ipod was a bonus
Our only problem with the property was wondering how the owner would feel if we all asked if we could move in full time!!
Parking outside on the road or in the drive was simple
5 minute walk around the corner to pubs, restaurants etc (they even give you a torch to use)
Loved it and will gladly hurry back
Excellent find
THANK YOU racecourse cottage

“Fantastic luxury cottage ideal for the Cartmel and/or Rogan experience”

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a few days, and was really impressed with every aspect. The location is great (looks out over racecourse, several good pubs and restaurants a few minutes walk away (including both Rogans and L’Enclume), and the place is furnished and fitted out really well in terms of furnishings, décor etc – definitely an up-market place. We didn’t use all three bedrooms, but it was good to see that there were also three bathrooms which would be good when we return (as we will) next year. Everything you need is there, whether you want to eat out or cook in, and we were given a welcome pack (eggs from the owners’ farm, bread, bottle of wine). We can’t travel anywhere without good wifi, and the cottage has a good strong signal, and allows multiple devices to connect.
When we were there we ate at Rogans (we’d previously eaten at L’enclume), and if you turn left when you leave the cottage the main square with multiple (all good…) pubs is there.
Thoroughly recommend – can’t fault it, would definitely recommend and stay there again when in the area.

The owners are very friendly and helpful, and it's clear they've thought through how to offer an outstanding customer experience.


Tip: it has its own off-road parking space just to the side. Also, if you turn left as you exit and then left down a narrow alley you come to a great pub with food. Also the Priory pub is good to eat/drink in.
