I feel bad writing the first average review here but I really don't agree with many of the previous reviewers' comments. Yes, the location is good, in Cartmel village, and the room was clean and the breakfast decent with a food selection. Caroline was very helpful. However these are things you should expect from any B&B. At £75 per night... More

This is a real gem of a B&B. Over the years B&B`s have really upped their standards and this property is at the top of them all. You could not ask for more. Caroline really does cater for all the needs of a weary walker. Nothing was too much trouble. A really lovely establishment.

I had researched accommodation in Cartmel as I had booked L’enclume for our anniversary dinner. Calsfell View popped up in top spot with very good reviews. I didn’t hesitate to book this several months in advance. Caroline was a delightful host, very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were spotless and nice touches such as complimentary sherry. The breakfast... More

What an outstanding level of service provided! Well cooked breakfasts; welcoming interior and a very helpful landlady. What more could you want? Situated in the very historic village of Cartmel Calsfell B and B was everything you could have wanted. The land lady (Caroline) even gave me a lift from the station as I don't have a car and made...

Our main purpose in Cartmel was to visit L’enclume. We stayed 2 nights (Friday-Sunday) and it is a great base in which to explore the local area and further afield (Bowness-on-Windermere is 1/2 hour drive away). We stayed in the front room, large, very clean and tidy. Lots of storage for our posh clothes and ‘wet weather’ gear. Well decorated... More

Caroline made us feel very welcome and our room was super comfortable. She makes the best eggs benedict ever (breakfast ingredients were all sourced locally and from good suppliers). A credit to Cartmel and strongly recommended.

We've just got home from a one night stay at Calsfell view, it really was top notch. The room was great & the location is ideal (just a short stroll into Cartmel). Caroline (the owner) gives the B&B the edge - she is welcoming, informative and has thought of all the small things that make the difference (maps, a torch... More

We had a lovely stay. It's the little things that make you feel as if everything has been thought of, from the torch on the keyring to the hand-drawn map of the area. I didn't think the pictures online did the place justice. It was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and sourced from local farms. Would recommend.

Returned for another visit to L'Enclume, which is just a short stroll away. Enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee in the garden after we arrived and marvelled at how peaceful it was. Rooms are clean and handsomely decorated. We've stayed in both and on balance prefer the front room, so would request that one next time - but would be... More
