This apartment, in a beautiful spot, has too many faults to make it top quality. On the plus side it's in a great location in a nice old building with a good pub a short stroll away. There are some good local walks and some superb walks a short drive away. The lovely old village of Cartmel, with its beautiful ancient abbey, is only a couple of miles away, the beautiful Holker Hall is within walking distance and the old fashioned and friendly seaside town of Grange over Sands is about a 10 minute drive away. It is also easy to explore the area by train as there is a fairly frequent, though not entirely reliable service all along the coast of Morcambe Bay and up as far as Carlisle, with the station just a short walk away. The apartment was disappointing though. The kitchen is large, beautifully fitted out and very well equiped. The bathroom is also good, with loads of instant hot water. But the lounge is stark, with a grubby and fairly tatty carpet and was very cold during daylight hours, with the heating times restricted and no access to an over-ride or additional heat source. It was really rather miserable on a cold, very wet early autumn day. The bedroom is simply horrible though, with a cheap and squeaky bed base topped by an even cheaper unsupportive mattress and cheap bedding. We left a day early as we could not bear the thought of trying to sleep in it for one more night, and we both needed physio treatment for back pain when we got home. It's a shame - this apartment could be a real winner with a bit more thought and investment in guests' comfort. Directions to find the key were also laughably poor. We were lucky to be able to ask a resident of a nearby house, otherwise we would have not been able to get access at all.
