Our first taste of Crumble - perfectly delicious! We look forward to returning for another helping or two......very soon. Aug 2014 Christina and Terry Dorset.

A perfect place to stay in - the cottage, the village, the hosts were all amazing. Thank you September 2014 Neil and Laria West Midlands.

Fab location, lovely walks from the cottage. Cartmel is a foodies heaven, L'Enclume and Rogan and Co were outstanding. We had a lovely relaxing break. October 2014 Julie and Barry Cheshire.

Second Helpings at Crumble Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Having had a wonderfully relaxing stay over a (very wet!) Christmas, we couldn’t resist returning for another visit to this cosy and charming cottage!

Owners Stewart and Sarah have managed to combine many features of the original character, whilst skillfully incorporating modern conveniences, such as under-floor heating in the bathroom.

Going for a long ramble, even in the rain, in the beautiful rolling countryside was no problem, knowing we could easily use the compact washer/tumble-dryer to dry wet clothes, whilst we basked in the glow of the log stove, enjoying our hot toddies!

Whether using as a base for exploring the south Lakes peninsular, or staying indoors to unwind in the warm, romantic atmosphere, Crumble Cottage is the perfect choice.

We will definatey be returning!

divine rural retreat, with Cartmel fine dining too

  • 5 of 5

Wow, lovely wee place for two to cosy up and rekindle romance by the log burning stove! We stayed midwinter, but had some glorious days for exploring the super countryside. You can nip over to the Lakes, but really, why bother with the crowds and inevitable traffic congestion? You've lanes and walks to yourself here...plus fabulous Cartmel's just a short stride away. The Priory makes a super visit and then it's an epicurean paradise, from L'Enclume to gastropubs, plus a handful of select shops to browse.

Horsey flutterers will love the racecourse meets (book the cottage EARLY, apparently) and I believe they're now doing a few summer concerts - I saw ads for Jools Holland and Simply Red.

The cottage interior is just gorgeous. Really tasteful and well appointed. Lovely shower. Sweet touches from owners Sarah and Stewart. They made us feel right at home, but then left us to our privacy.

Altogether a gem in the northwest quality self-catering firmament that needs to be discovered!

Wonderful cottage with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage - extremely comfortable, very clean and tidy with a very relaxed feeling about it. All that you need for your stay, oh, lovely and warm too with the wood burning stove!

We had a lovely stay perfect place to come following a busy Christmas and New Year!

Situated in a very quiet and peaceful location the cottage was only a short 5 minutes drive from the centre of Cartmel, as a result we found it perfectly located to explore Cumbria and the Lake District.

Sarah and Stewart were wonderful hosts and the directions given to the cottage were spot on and communication throughout the stay and before was greatly appreciated.

Overall a truly lovely place to stay when needing a little time out.
