Crumble Cottages – Romantic retreats near Cartmel
Crumble Cottages are the perfect romantic retreat for couples, tucked away in a quiet corner of Cumbria, a stone’s throw from the Lake District National Park.
Each luxury self-catering cottage has been lovingly restored and both are crammed with period features including thick stone walls, exposed oak beams and a cosy wood burner. In addition, there’s free wifi, ample car parking and extensive gardens – Upper Crumble even has its own secluded hot tub.
They are the ideal base for cycling or hiking around the nearby Lake District fells or watching the local wildlife. You can also enjoy Cartmel’s superb gastropubs or treat yourself to dinner at the world-famous, Michelin starred, L’Enclume restaurant just a mile away in the village.
A bright and airy exciting space where the countryside spills in through the front windows. The cottage also includes a private courtyard with hot tub – perfect for stargazing.
A cosy hideaway cottage with log burner, oak beams, chandeliers and tiny shuttered windows with stunning views of the garden and meadow.

“We had a wonderful, peaceful weekend. A fantastic welcome; beautiful cottage in blissful surroundings – we felt very relaxed very quickly. Cartmel has everything you need for a weekend escape. If you are reading this, you’ve come to the right place!”
“Amazing cottage and amazing weekend exploring Cartmel. We had the best sleeps and don’t want to leave. Thank you.
“We’ve just returned from a 3 night stay at Upper Crumble and I would highly recommend it. I actually didn’t want to leave! My husband took me away for a birthday weekend (without children).
We were met by Stewart and Sarah when we arrived who were lovely and gave great recommendations for our stay. They were on hand if we needed them but equally gave us lots of space to enjoy the peaceful setting. The cottage was fantastic and clean and practically brand new. Perfect fire and hot tub which we made the most of. We walked into Cartmel which has some lovely shops and pubs and we were lucky enough to have pre booked dinner at Rogan and Co which was amazing. Also great cheese shop! Perfect place to relax and on the doorstep to some amazing places in the lakes to enjoy beautiful walks”.
Thank you Stuart and Sarah – we will be back! Liz x
