This lovely, detached house in Cark in Cartmel sleeps eleven in six bedrooms.

Old Bank House is a characterful house in Cark in Cartmel. With six bedrooms, two doubles, two second floor twins, a single and a bunk room, it sleeps eleven comfortably. There is also a bathroom, a shower room, a ground floor cloakroom, a kitchen with dining area, a dining room with a woodburner and a sitting room with a woodburner.

Outside there is a courtyard garden and roadside parking. Old Bank House is a large house in a great location, ideal for a large family.


The good points: great location, large enough to house a large group of people, fairly clean, well equipped kitchen, games and toys for children Weak points: very dated interior (although kitchen was modern), shower didn't work very well, fridge was not working, the plug had been taped on to the extension lead, on closer inspection, we found the fuse had been replaced with a piece of tin foil (dangerous!). Could have done with more loo rolls. In all, not bad but disappointing as the rental was quite expensive.

This was a great location; the cottage was very comfortable and we would go back when we return to the area.

Liked the luxury of the open fire and general atmosphere of the house.

Nothing spectular!
Stayed here with friends over the new year period. House was pleasant enough but dark and wouldn't say it felt friendly although our stay was pleasant enough. Had to go out on arrival to stock up on wood for the fire - okay but had we arrived late on wouldn't have been quite so easy about it. Been to quite a few houses over the years but this wasn't one I'd like to return to. Very basic accommodation but clean - the plus is the ease to get to places from Cark. Might just be me and the house may suit others better.
