Charming and Peaceful
Set back in the grounds of Longlands estate, this cottage is full of character and period charm. A lovely place inside and out, whilst it may appear a little dated (think 1970's), it has all the latest facilities you'd need (free wifi with good strong signal throughout). This place is ideal if you have dogs, completely enclosed and all livestock fenced out. Cartmel is under a mile away, but you'd struggle to walk there on the roads, as they are a little unsafe without pavements. This would be the only downside though.

Authentic and Cosy
Just had a few days at the Grooms Quarters Cartmel and it's been absolutely lovely. One of a few cottages adjacent to Longlands House set back well away from the roads so it's safe and has a feeling of the grand. The cottage itself felt really warm and cosy and perfect for us as a couple and our spaniel. We loved The original features and furniture and the old books. It felt like we had borrowed someone's home. The staff were really lovely and so helpful. There's a delightful walled garden and a good walk beyond and up to the fells. Recommended.

Fantastic Easter break
My husband and I stopped Friday while Tuesday with our two Collies. It was lovely to get away in the countryside, the cottage was clean and tidy with a homely feel. We really enjoyed the nearby walks and will definitely be returning soon.

Idyllic Cottage with spectacular views
Probably less than one mile from Cartmel. We have just returned from 3 nights in this cottage. The cottage was absolutely lovely. Open plan lounge with kitchen. Lovely fireplace, but fire not needed this weekend.Very comfortable large bed, and plenty of hot water in the bathroom. No trickling showers here. It was a cosy warm cottage a quarter of a mile from any traffic. Excellent car parking, dog heaven. We had 2 with us. We intended to go out during the evening but the cottage was so welcoming we stayed in every night. During the days we visited Cartmel a couple of times, and Lake Windermere and Bowness, all an easy drive. Fabulous dog walks from the cottage.

We liked the beautiful surroundings and setting of the holiday cottage as well as the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The use of the walled gardens was a big bonus for us as we are both gardeners, and the fact that the whole place is so dog friendly. This was our third visit and we would definitely stay again. We also found the location great for accessing the rest of the lakes.
