The age of elegance is not past; it still lives on at this lovely old manor house where two generations of the Varley family have created a special atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
Once the distinguished residence of the descendants of William Marshall, the Earl of Pembroke, founder of the historic 12th Century Cartmel Priory, Aynsome still echoes with the character and traditions of that bygone era.
The main house has 10 comfortable bedrooms mainly built around a courtyard, and covering two floors. A cosy well stocked bar and charming lounges with log fires and peaceful views of the valley are available for your relaxation. Aynsome cottage lies a few short paces across the flagged courtyard and was converted from a 16th Century stone built stable with one double and one twin room both with their own private facilities. There is also a comfortably furnished lounge.
Located in the still untouched Vale of Cartmel and with views southwards to the Norman Priory, meadowlands and woods, Aynsome Manor represents an ideal centre from which to explore the richness of the English Lakes or the hidden delights of the nearby coastline with its fascinating estuaries and inlets.
