We stayed for two nights in the Bradshaw room on the ground floor of L'enclume House. Very well appointed large room. Separate sitting area and a large bathroom with a walk in shower and separate bath.Beds are a personal thing. It has a memory foam mattress which was a little hard for me but perfect for Kathryn. The first night... More

We had room 15 in L'Enclume House, which was a good size and very well presented. Although it faces the road and doesn't have double glazing we had no issue with noise - Cartmel is a beautifully peaceful village. The bed was super-comfy, and even though the duvet seemed thin it was warm and snug. When we arrived there was... More

We stayed here for a weekend break and were lucky enough to get into L'Enclume House - more expensive than the rooms at the restaurant, bigger and well appointed. Room 18 overlooked the beck and was very quiet, lovely large room with ensuite and seating area plus a desk. Exceptionally clean but with several faults in our opinion: - the... More

This was a great trip, the L'Enclume Hotel was really nice and staff very welcoming. The L'Enclume restaurant and taster menu was fantastic and brilliant experience a real must for any food lover, again the staff were great. The new restaurant next door i could take it or leave it. A beautiful location within the lake district though no easy... More

We stayed in suites 8 and 9. Very nice rooms, free wifi, a/c, Nespresso, big flat tv, DVD, powerful shower. 9 is upstairs and has sloping ceilings, so is a bit more cosy, 8 is lower floor with high ceilings. Parking in the village can be tricky, but there is more space at the race course. Very pleasant stay, excellent... More

As others have said this is a restaurant with rooms, not a hotel. We were in room two which is a standard room above L'Enclume. We checked in at the reception beside Rogan & Co and the receptionist walked us to the room. A very nice personal touch, also gives opportunity to ask and learn about the village and restaurants....

We came to L'Enclume for two nights to celebrate our friend's birthday. We booked it as part of the two night experience and also ate at L'Enclume and Rogan &Co (both absolutely superb and reviewed separately). The deluxe rooms were all booked so we each had a standard room and as they went they were absolutely fine - but nothing... More

Sold as a restaurant with rooms, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed - the fresh milk and shortbread nice touches but its not a Hotel although they charge hotel prices £199 on a Saturday night and £179 Friday. Walking to breakfast (served at Rogan &Co) albeit through a beautiful village in pouring rain isn't pleasant. The breakfast was tasty... More
