I love this place! It's just a beautiful environment in which to spend a few days. On your own, with a partner or with friends. The garden is fantastic. The view from the higher section is amazing. The total darkness you experience there at night (and how much that improves your sleep). The log fire. The way horses and even...

There was great wifi connection, plus there were games and puzzles we played in the evenings. The fire place makes it extra cozy. The...

Getting around
Always worth stopping off at Cartmel!
Car advised
How to get there
1. From Cartmel take the main road north towards Newby Bridge. Leaving Cartmel village and in open farmland, take the first left turn. Follow this road past Aynsome Manor Hotel and up the hill at Greenbank. Pass Greenbank Farm on the bend and at the top bear right at the junction. Woodland Cottage is directly after this on the right-hand side. The gate to the owners’ house is about 200 yards further, on the left-hand side.
2. There’s another route, avoiding Cartmel, south from the A590 via Field Broughton. It avoids the steep hills on minor roads which aren’t gritted in cold weather. Turn left off the A590 by Staveley, just after the end of the dual carriageway, signed ‘Cartmel 4’. Carry on for about 2½ miles before turning right for Wood Broughton, the 3rd right hand turning...
