Field Beck in Cartmel

Barn Garth, Cartmel, Cumbria, LA11 6PP

Set in a quiet lane on the edge of the ancient village of Cartmel, 'Field Beck' self catering holiday home looks like the sort of late Georgian house that Jane Austen might have lived in. It is a Grade II Listed building and all its rooms catch the sun and overlook either the Priory or the local Fells.

The house has been carefully restored to keep its historic charm so although it is very comfortable and has 'all mod cons', Miss Marple would probably feel at home. It is surrounded by a delightful walled garden with a pond, a stream and a patio that is a real sun trap.

On the ground floor is: a sitting room with woodstove, a dining room, a breakfast room, a scullery and kitchen which features 1950's stainless steel units.

On the first floor are a twin bedroom, 2 double bedrooms (1 with washbasin) and a bathroom. Above is an attic with twin beds and an extra TV, Beneath the house are extensive cellars, an extra loo and a games room.

The house will sleep 8 adults comfortably and there are two loos, but with only one bath (shower over) 6 may be a more practical maximum number.
Cartmel is famous for its 800 year old Priory, its racecourse and picturesque village square. It is 'Foodie Heaven' with 4 gastropubs all doing excellent food, and several exceptional restaurants nearby. L'Enclume, with 2 Michelin stars and voted Britain's best restaurant 4 times, is 3 minutes walk away. There is also a micro-brewery, artisan baker, cheesemonger, delicatessen, chocolatier, and a monthly food market...

The village is set in a lovely valley and, being off the busy tourist routes, it is ideally placed for visiting the Lakes, Windermere being about 5 miles away. Apart from the walking and scenery there are many activities close by such as golf, swimming, tennis, steam railways, riding and country sports, and many stately homes and places of interest to visit.
