I echo everything that has been said about the main restaurant...no need to repeat...it was amazing, HOWEVER the same could not be said about the experience at the sister house up the road. It was very average.The room smelled very strange, like carbolic soap. The breakfast..... it took at least 25 mins from placing order to eating. The porridge/fruit salad... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Bradshaw Room as part of the gourmet package. This is just a review of the accommodation. The room is across a little courtyard behind reception on the ground floor. It is tastefully appointed with quirky furniture in keeping with the old building. The bathroom door is a magnificent & huge piece of glass, but... More

I chose L'Enclume as the place to take my family to celebrate my "special" birthday. We had been twice before and had the most wonderful dining experience in the evening. They didn't let us down. We had a truly memorable evening. The attention we were given by the staff was exemplary. Sam and Neil and their colleagues were terrific -... More

The accommodation is tucked away down a side street in the lovely village of Cartmel. This review is ignoring the associated restaurants (we went as part of the two day gourmet break). The first impressions are good. Parking is limited but we always found somewhere to park for free against the walls of the Priory opposite. The welcome is fantastic... More

Has lunch here recently with a friend, understated quality with faultless service and interesting and stunning food. Thank you very much for a wonderful afternoon in Cartmel - this is just how it should be done!

We enjoyed a two night stay at L'Enclume house as part of a wider gourmet package. The room was excellent and the only criticism would be the banging of the downstairs rear door that rattled throughout the rooms close to it which became somewhat annoying.

We stayed two nights and, due to refurbishments, had to change rooms for the second night. Rather annoying but allowed us to experience that the rooms are scattered across a few properties near the restaurant. Both rooms were tidy, comfortable, quiet and rather sparsely furnished. Parking was surprisingly easy for a village of narrow streets. Breakfast was very enjoyable, scoring... More

We stayed here and ate in the restaurant for a special occasion. We arrived early and were able to check into our room about two hours early without any fuss from the owners. The hotel has a lovely relaxed feel to it, and the village is really pretty. There was a power cut across the whole village whilst we were... More

We stayed in a room adjacent to the restaurant. The rooms are lovely and modern but ours (no. 3) overlooked the conservatory and was unfortunately very noisy. We ate at the restaurant and returned to our room around 10 pm and the chatter from the restaurant went on quite late. This would not normally bother us but as we were... More

The B & B you can book when eating at L'Enclume is not promoted well so I didn't have high hopes. However I was very pleased with room 16 when we arrived. Smallish rooms but they are clean with everything you need. Nice tea and coffee and home made biscuits. Lemon grass soaps/ toiletries. I would stay again. The hotel... More
