It’s close to the town, within walking distance. Parking and WIFI is free  A whole host of toiletries available, plenty of tea... More

Cartref guest house was so easy to find! And ideally located! Less than a 5 minute walk to the city centre. Although parking is limited, Melanie issued us with a parking permit that made things much easier! The guest house was very well presented both outside and in, very clean and well decorated. Melanie and her sister were both very... More

We stayed in 2 rooms for one night with friends. Upon arrival the owner was very helpful with our car parking. 10 minutes walk from the city centre, nice eating places nearby. Both rooms were lovely and clean with lots of little extra touches which made our stay more enjoyable. Next time we're visiting Carlisle we'll definitely stay there again!

Stayed here overnight with my family en route to Cornwall and what a beautiful Guest House it was. The bedrooms were very comfortable and clean and although the single room had shared facilities this was not a problem as we were away so early the next morning. The family room was fantastic and very spacious so all six of us... More

We would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was amazing too. The B&B is perfectly situated for a walk into town or a visit to the Sands Centre. We were... More
