With five bedrooms offering spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to 12 people, this splendid, detached house is an ideal location for a large family or group of friends to explore a magnificent part of the country.

This imposing, detached house is situated at the centre of the small fishing village of Flookburgh. Ideally located in the heart of the Lake District Peninsula and just two miles from Cartmel, this former fisherman's cottage has been lovingly modernised and furnished to an exceptionally high standard in order to provide visitors with a spacious holiday home. With a snug sitting room containing a wood-burning stove, a well-appointed kitchen and a rear courtyard boasting table tennis and a lovely decked area, this property provides the perfect opportunity for guests to enjoy al fresco dining. Flookburgh's 18th Century pub is close by, as is the Cumbria Coastal Path and many other great activities.


Had a really great week in the Lake District! Dolphin Cottage is in a good location for Lake Windermere, with plenty of space for 12 adults and we would visit again.
Miss Wilkins

We all thought the facilities at Dolphin Cottage were excellent. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large, clean and modern. The kitchen and dining areas were were well maintained and spacious.The cottage itself is set within a picturesque village. We commend the outside areas of the cottage which were spacious and provided more than enough room for BBQs and off road parking. Overall our experience was excellent and we would recommend to a large group visiting the lakes.
Mr Baker

This cottage was not as described on the website, it was unclean and in need of a lot of maintainance to bring it to the standard described. The outside area was an either or situation in that if you parked 4 cars there was no room for children to play or alfresco dining. We had to weed the garden as it was full of nettles and the table tennis area was full of debri and broken flags. We had a dog and young children with us and they could quite easily escape through the gate. The kitchen was filthy and greasy . Some of the dining chairs were damaged and a few of the blinds were broken . We left early as we also saw mice in the lounge area. The shower in the top bathroom ran only cold water and the cistern in the first floor bathroom took 15 minutes to fill.

The cottage was clean and roomy, we were a family party of eleven, ages From 11 to 70. The village had an excellent chip shop and two pubs, the table tennis table was a bonus and enjoyed by all ages. A good spot for visiting the Lakes.
A FlipKey verified reviewer

The house was lovely and perfect for our large group. It was better than we were all expecting. The village was quiet but had everything we needed and was close enough to all the places we wanted to visit.
