This comfortable home tucked away in the village of Allithwaite is situated between historic Cartmel and beautiful Grange-over-Sands. Its location combines the best of the countryside whilst remaining closely linked to all the local attractions and facilities. The fantastic attractions of the Windermere Lake Cruises, Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway and Aquarium of the Lakes are all within a 10 minute drive.
Fell View Cottage is located just 2 miles away from the Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands, with its grand houses and mild climate, this modern home is the ideal base to explore the South Lakes and is perfect for families or couples without the bustle of being in the centre of town. The mild climate here is perfect for flourishing gardens, including the world famous gardens of Levens Hall. If you love nothing better than spending a sunny day leisurely wandering about a stunning Grade I listed formal garden then this is a treat not to be missed.
There is also plenty of plant life of the wilder variety close at hand too.
Arnside Knott (NT) and Bardsea Country Park are fantastic sites for spotting flora and fauna and enjoying woodland walks with the family or even just you and the dog. A tamer way to spot animals is at Ducky’s Park Farm in Flookburgh, just over 2 miles away. This delightful venue promotes not only farm animals and farming practices but also provides a great day out for the family. The children can dive into the huge indoor play area and the family can enjoy lunch or a snack in the café on those days when the weather doesn’t always co-operate. For outdoor activities look no further; there is not one but two golf courses, pony trekking and even parachute jumping for the adrenalin junkies all within a few miles of Fell View cottage.
For history buffs there is Cartmel Priory which was founded by Augustinian canons over 800 years ago and is a must see for all those interested in ecclesiastical architecture.
Cartmel also has wonderful antique and craft shops to browse along the cobbled streets. If architecture and gardens don’t get your heart pounding then maybe a day at the races will. Less than 2 miles away from Fell View is Cartmel Racecourse which offers the thrill of National Hunt (jump) racing during the summer months.
Cartmel can offer something for all the family with its mix of history, sport and also, food. The full spectrum of restaurants is available from traditional pubs to the Michelin starred L’Enclume. This is the home of sticky toffee pudding and you should take time to sample the local cuisine.
Allithwaite’s own village pub should be on your list too as it serves wonderful home cooked food by a roaring log fire. In addition to the pub the village offers all you might need with a well-stocked general store and post office, a children’s playground, sports field and tennis courts on the doorste
This superbly equipped cottage has everything you could ask for right at your fingertips. The lovely cottage garden is safe and secure and is bathed in sunshine. Sit out and enjoy a family barbeque or perhaps a quiet evening with a glass of wine and a good book.
Spend a quiet evening in front of the fire on the comfortable couches in the sitting room and enjoy good company and some music or watch your favourite shows or films on TV. The cottage has Freeview and a selection of videos, DVD’s and CDs for you to enjoy on a quiet night in. The fully fitted kitchen has it all; gas cooker and grill along with a microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and iron and board to make this a home from home. A large table, which seats six, has a lovely view of the garden through the sliding glass doors and the room is flooded with natural light. And so you don’t spend all your holiday doing the washing as there is a washing machine and a tumble dryer to do it for you. Plenty of crockery and cooking utensils are provided along with dinnerware, cutlery and tea towels.
Upstairs the 2 bedrooms are a delightful place to end the day. The tastefully co-ordinated rooms are restful and welcoming. The double bedroom, with a lovely large window allowing in the morning light, has bedside tables and lighting for curling up with a good book and the triple room, similarly well appointed, has views towards the sea. If you have little ones there is a cot available for your use. The bathroom is fully equipped with a bath, shower, basin, WC and shaver point.
Downstairs for your convenience is a cloakroom with a WC and basin.
