Low Cartmell Fold - Four Bedroom House, Sleeps 8

Located in: Crosthwaite »
Traditional 17th Century Lake District meets 21st century luxury
convenience as you step inside Low Cartmell Fold. This quintessential
Lakeland farmhouse has been fully refurbished with love and care to
create high quality and luxurious accommodation, in the pretty village
of Crosthwaite, whilst retaining so many original features from the
slate floors, wooden panel walls, oak beams, feature fire place,
characterful staircase and the occasional sloping floor! Low Cartmell
Fold is a real find and is a great setting for family celebrations,
special occasions and simply spending time with family and friends.

Offering plenty of social space with large lounge and a family dining
room both with feature fireplaces, a cosy snug and a large farmhouse
kitchen. Choose from four bedrooms, two with super ensuite facilities
and a luxurious family bathroom. A private cottage garden wraps around
the rear of the property with a choice of two patios. A detached garage
offers plenty of secure storage for bikes, canoes and outdoor gear and
on the upper floor the games room is popular with the teenagers.

Situated in the village of Crosthwaite in the Lyth Valley, which has
recently been included by Lonely Planet' Beautiful World List list of
the "most beautiful places on earth", Low Cartmell Fold is only 15
minutes away from Lake Windermere and Bowness and a similar distance
from the renowned "foodie" destination of Cartmel home to the famous
Sticky Toffee Pudding and the acclaimed and Michelin award winning
L'Enclume. Closer to home, however, the great news is that Low Cartmell
Fold is less than a 5 minute walk from the popular Punch Bowl Inn which
is renowned for its excellent menu of local produce, quality wine
cellar and great local ales and The Gilpin with one Michelin star is a
ten minute drive from the cottage.


Accommodation in detail

A narrow farm lane leads the short distance from the village of
Crosthwaite to Low Cartmell Fold. Stepping from the slate porch and
through the front door, visitors are immediately struck by the age and
character of the beautiful Lakeland farm house.

The reception rooms are arranged on the ground floor and include
beautiful traditional slate floors. The welcoming living room with
feature oak panel wall is a great room where friends and family can
relax on comfortable sofas in front of a cosy log burning stove or
enjoy a film on TV. The spacious family dining room is a real feature
of the house with original feature fire place and large family dining
table and continues to play host to many special family celebrations or
relaxing social dinners with friends. As you would expect, the large
farmhouse kitchen is the real heart of the home. The bespoke fitted
kitchen, with granite worktops and feature island unit, includes an
electric aga, American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing
machine and tumble dryer and a quality kitchen inventory. A farmhouse
kitchen table is a great place to gather for breakfast in a morning to
plan your day in the lakes or to relax over a drink as your appointed
head chef conjures up a "Masterchef" moment! If you need to escape with
a good book or the weekend papers, the pretty snug is a real feature of
the cottage with club room style wing back chairs.

Choose from one of four pretty bedrooms, all of which include original
period features. The master bedroom is presented with a superb super
king bed and is complemented by a smart ensuite shower room with walk
in shower, basin and WC. The second bedroom offers a king size bed and
complemented by a luxurious ensuite bathroom with feature bath, shower
cubicle, basin and WC. The final two rooms are presented as a pretty
double and a delightful twin room respectively and these rooms benefit
from the spacious family shower room, just across the landing, with a
large walk in shower, basin and WC.

Outside there is ample parking for two cars to the side of the property
and one car to the front of the farm house. The detached garage offers
secure storage for bikes, canoes and outdoor gear and on the upper
floor the owners have created a games room with pool table, bar
football and darts board making it the ideal retreat for the teenagers.

A pretty cottage garden wraps around the rear and side of the cottage
and includes two patios both with bistro furniture and planted with
mature shrubs and borders, lawns and mature trees.


This fabulous self-catering property in the Lyth Valley takes you away
from busier Lake District holiday locations, and into a divine rural
landscape all of your own that has been included by Lonely Planet list
of "the most beautiful places on earth".

The Lyth Valley lies behind Cartmel Fell to the east of Lake
Windermere. The valley is known for its serene agricultural landscapes,
its vibrant damson blossom (and harvest - look out for locally made
damson jam and damson gin from the valley in the local artisan food and
farm shops) in spring, and its widely-acclaimed Lake District
gastropubs including The Punchbowl at Crosthwaite and The Mason's Arms
at Strawberry Bank, The Hare and Hounds at Bowland Bridge and the Lyth
Valley with its excellent bar and restaurant is only a five minute
drive away.

This unspoilt medieval village of Cartmel is situated in a quiet valley
in one of England's most outstanding areas of natural beauty on the
fringe of the Lake District National Park is only a fifteen minute
drive from Low Cartmel Fold.

Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and
countryside, Cartmel has grown up around its famous 12th Century
medieval Priory Church. It is a special place where ancient history and
tradition mingle effortlessly with the present day.

Although steeped in history, Cartmel is not trapped in time and the
village offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of
fine quality attractions, shops, a wide variety of traditional Lakeland
inns and cutting edge gourmet restaurants including the internationally
acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant, L'Enclume. Around the village
square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th
century buildings.

All this and the famous Cartmel racecourse providing national hunt
racing in its most original format is just off the centre of the
village square. With its party crowds and funfair, Cartmel rekindles
the social gathering tradition of the original steeple to steeple
