Drakes Cottage is just over a mile from Cartmel's shops, pubs and restaurants, and makes a great base for enjoying the peninsula and Lake District beyond.


The village of Cartmel which is just one mile gentle (level) walk away. And the cottage is on the really beautiful Aynesome Manor Park. They also make dogs very welcome. The site manager, Mick, was very friendly and helpful. The open fire drew really well and was supplied with a starter-pack of wood and kindling for the first night. There are some really good artisan food and crafts in Cartmel and the Priory is a building of great peace and beauty in its own right.
Mr Connolly

Very friendly and an ideal location to explore. Fell foot was a favourite and cartmel is lovely too. Made our first holiday with our dog much easier due to places the dog could go. Beautiful grounds with stream and ducks and the cottage thoughtfully provided for our stay.
Mrs Clarke

All the scenic places and beautiful villages. Friendly people and the slow pace of the area in comparison To where we live. Great pubs and good food.
Mr Woodwards

A great little cottage set in a peaceful development in the grounds of a hotel. A good location for exploring the Lakes and the beautiful village of Cartmel is just over a mile away.
