This semi-detached cottage is located near to Cartmel and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

The Byre is a semi-detached cottage in a rural location just two miles from Cartmel in the southern part of the Lake District. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, one twin room and a family bathroom. It also contains a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area. Outside is off road parking and a patio area with outdoor furniture. Perfect for discovering the Cumbrian coast and the Lake District National Park, The Byre is a lovely romantic retreat in Cumbria.


The cottage had everything we needed, we had a 9 month old and a huskie, and the layout of the cottage worked very well. Plenty to see in the area and the peace and quiet was lovely as well. Most of the places we visited were happy for dogs to go in. Will definitely be going back.

We stayed at The Byre to celebrate my birthday, me, my partner, my parents and pooch. The weather was lovely and we were able to explore much of the lakes including Cartmel, Grange over Sands, Kendal, Hawkshead, Windermere and Coniston. The cottage is very spacious inside with beautiful high beam ceilings which is hard to capture in a photo. It was also immaculate yet cosy with beautiful fresh flowers upon arrival. The location is very tranquil and peaceful. I thoroughly enjoyed taking the pooch out for a morning run in the village down by St Peters Church watching the sun rise was beautiful the only noise was the sounds of birds chirping or an odd moo of a cow. Would highly recommend The Byre for a relaxing and cosy stay.

It was very peaceful and felt welcoming. Beautiful views, love the Cartmell cheese and would have loved to have stayed longer.

Me and my fianc?e visited cartmel/grange over sands for a long weekend. It was a fantastic cottage, spacious and perfect to take along our dog. The photographs don't do the property justice. Would highly recommend staying here and we will certainly be back

This is a semi-detached cottage which is absolutely stunning. Sarah certainly has thought of everything even down to little details. The cottage was well stocked which we weren't expecting but was glad of! The garden was well enclosed and was all patio-ed so no need to worry about muddy foot prints or paw prints. I stayed with my husband and our dog Odin, the enclosed garden meant that we could leave the door open while we were in so Odin could go out when he wanted without worrying that he would escape! There is no WIFI here and we couldn't get a phone signal, but, for me, this was perfect as it meant that my husband wasn't working the entire holiday so he was able to relax as much as me! The walk into Cartmel is about an hour away. We found a nice walk on a quiet road by going right out of the property, down the lane toward the church at the bottom, going left onto the busier road and then turning right just past a phone box and following signs to Wood Broughton. The walk is spectacular, the views are amazing and the road are quiet and safe which is excellent if you have dogs or children. There are so many beautiful walks you can do up bridlepaths and across fields! All in all we had a wonderful holiday in a beautiful rural cottage. Thank you Sarah, we will definitely come back again.
