Great House, Great Location
Last minute booking as our other accommodation fell through. Jo the owner was really helpful and phoned and emailed all the info we needed as we were unfamiliar with the area. The house is fantastic. It's an extended red sandstone mid terrace at the top of the hill in allithwaite. It has open views to the rear and is in really attractive surroundings. Bedrooms are excellent, 1 double, 1 twin and a single. Cracking big ensuite off the double with a walk in shower. The living room has a log burning stove and would be really cosy in winter. The kitchen diner is modern and well equipped. Nothing you will need is missing. Allithwaite is a beautiful village in its own right. It has a small shop and the Pheasant Inn is a lovely family friendly pub with excellent food. Grange over Sands is only a couple of miles away with the stunning village of Cartmel only a mile the other direction. All in all its a cracking house in a really great location. Highly recommended!

Lovely cottage and great location
We had a great time in this very well equipped and comfortable cottage. We were 5 people and 2 dogs, all had plenty of room. We loved the views from the back and the cosy fire in the front room. Cartmel has some nice restaurants, pubs and cafes including the Pig and Whistle where we had a very nice meal. Cartmel sticky toffee pudding is highly recommended, we even bought some to take back with us. Flounders fish and chip shop in Flookburgh is also recommended. We visited Muncaster and Sizergh Castle which were both very interesting. Muncaster also allows dogs around the gardens and grounds providing they are on a lead. Don't forget Sizergh farm shop on your way out! Thank you for a great stay, looking forward to our next holiday in the Lakes.

Just returned from a weeks stay at this excellent house. We were 2 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room for us all. Very comfy and clean. Only thing I would suggest is a flask and plastic crockery would be a great addition for taking out on picnics Im writing this review as I forgot to sign the guest book.

Great base for walking, biking South Lakes, Morecambe Bay
Allithwaite is handy for Cartmel, Ulverston, Kendal, Barrow and Lancaster. There are fell walks, Lakes, bay walks and rides all within easy reach. The cottage is clean, up to date, well maintained and easy to live in and use. I liked using the train at Kents Bank and Cark for journeys round to Lancaster, Morecambe, Ulverston and Barrow. Today I took the train to Ulversyton and walked up Hoad Hill to the Barrow monument. It looks like a lighthouse. Panoramic views over the hills, bay and town. Fat Flour bakery down the hill in Cark, 8 am to 1pm, and Friday and Saturday evenings for pizzas, is good for interesting bread. I especially enjoyed the honey and walnut loaf this time.

Beautiful cottage felt like home from home. Very well equipped, and super clean. The views from the back of the cottage are superb. Good location for surrounding attractions. Would definitely revisit.
