Low ceilings in an old converted cottage right in the centre of Cartmel. Location couldn't be much better and you really get the feel of Cartmel village life. Perhaps not the poshest hotel room I've been in but it would be wrong to try to compare it with the best in London. This is a very quiet and comfortable hotel... More

Living in Manchester, we had eaten at both The French and Mr Coopers (both Simon Rogen creations) so whilst visiting the lakes for a weekend we though we'd try L'Enclume. The whole experience was fantastic. We went for the 6 course taster menu and every last bite was a delight. Service was fantastic and the local Sandpiper lager was a... More

Our only disappoint with L'Enclume was that we could only stay for one night. The room was large, airy and overlooked the river. The bathroom was fabulous with excellent toiletries and a simply amazing shower. My partner is a bit over the top about cleanliness and he could not find a single thing to turn his nose up at. The...

Lovely room a short walk from the restaurant and and overlooking the square with large beds and all mod cons. We would have been completely satisfied had a design fault not been noisily demonstrated by the people occupying the room above having guests in after the meal and having to get to their room via a set of stairs which...

Stayed here for a night after an incredible meal and very special celebration (got engaged) at L'enclume. The room was a short walk through the lovely village of Cartmel right next to Rogan&Co - where breakfast is the next morning. The room itself was cosy and had nice touches like homemade shortbread and plenty of fresh milk (a big pro... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, we experienced both a superior and basic room. They were both excellent. The superior was larger with a better shower, but I couldn't fault either room, and loved the little touches; such as a personalised welcome letter and a nespresso, milk in the fridge and delicious biscuits. Added to the stay was breakfast in... More

nice reception the room was ok but was nothing special for the money. Bathrobes would have been nice the shower ok but not real power and the wifi painfully slow. Our room was over the restaurant which was a bit noisy during lunch service.

For £180 you expect quite a lot from a country B+B and this did not deliver. Our room was directly above the restaurant and was therefore really quite noisy - making our longed-for post-lunch nap impossible. The bathroom has a waterfall shower, our least-favourite form of shower as it is impossible to direct the flow of water. The modish tiles... More

Can't quite say why this property doesn't warrant 5 stars. The whole building is spotless, reception friendly and attentive, beds comfortable, bedding excellent quality. Perhaps the lack of bathrobes, a fairly basic bathroom and the absence of toiletries even to purchase- we forgot our toothpaste- bring it down that 1 star, especially when measured against the price. Breakfast was very... More
