Welcome to the Westgate Cottage Website

Where guests return year after year

Set in nine acres of woodland in the Lake District, Westgate Cottage is a charming detached stone built retreat nestling on the edge of a private development of lodges deep in the heart of the Cartmel Valley.  The perfect location for relaxing in the tranquillity of the Lake District, yet ideally placed for a wealth of activities to enjoy.

Cartmel, famous for its 12th century Priory, is just one mile away, with pubs serving good food and drink as well as the usual shops.  A little further afield is Grange-over-sands with its promenade, and the historic market town of Kendal is only a short journey.  Nearby, Bigland Hall offers activities such as fishing and clay pigeon shooting, and for golfers, there are two courses at Grange, one a fell course, is only a mile and a half away.

The surrounding countryside provides an abundance of hikes for the more energetic visitor, and for those looking for something a little more sedate, there are dozens of more gentle walks to choose from.  The choice is entirely up to you at Westgate Cottage.
