This cottage exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was fully fitted with dishwasher and washing machine.
Lovely location just a 20 minute drive to the heart of the Lake District.
A real bonus being 2 minutes away from the Hotel, as we could eat there when we did not feel like cooking.

I was attending a wedding in Kendal with husband and my cousin.
This cottage is in a very good location for exploring the lakes and Kendal is on he door step if you fancy doing a little shopping.
Th accommodation was excellent we had all the necessary kitchen ware and equipment, and we even had the central heating for when it got chilly, which this summer was most definitely appreciated.
I would stay there again.
Enjoyable away-from-it-all experience

Not sure exactly what to expect so we were all very pleased on arrival to find somewhere that met all our requirements and into which we were able to immediately settle into. The kitchen area did not impose on the living room area and was one of the best-equipped holiday kitchens I have ever come across. The bedrooms were nicely fitted out and the beds very comfortable. The shower fitting in the first floor en-suite shower fell off but was fixed same day without hesitation, good response well appreciated from the staff at Heaves Hotel in whose grounds Coachman's Cottage is based.
Local attractions begin with the nearby Sizergh Castle and gardens which can be walked to on a fine day and the local Sizergh Barn Shop has plenty of local produce to get a further fell of the area in culinary terms. The cafe there can be thoroughly recommended, the breakfasts are an excellent start to a day if you just want to relax without the bother of cooking your start to the day. Kendal is a good centre for almost everything else.
The Lake district is but a short distance away with plenty to see and do - from this location we were able to experience a wider coverage across Cumbria than we managed during previous trips, staying at apparently 'better' locations. But if you wanted just to lounge around for a day this place offered you the chance to do exactly that without feeling restricted or cramped - there is a pleasant garden area at the front with even a barbecue at your disposal.
One star markdown on "comfort" though because of the squeaky floorboards on the first floor bedroom mezzanine floor, which resonated in the ground floor bedroom. Apart from that, excellent stay, good service from the hotel owners and staff and last (but not least) a very handy location for Cumbria and north Lancashire.
Christmas break in the Lakes
Left on 02/08/2011 for a stay in December 2010 | Theresa
We wanted a cosy christmas break away from the usual holiday trappings and got exactly what we needed. This property is well-appointed, very comfortable and easily accessible. We had the first part of the week on our own and were then joined by our close friends who also loved the break. Having a bathroom each was fantastic, though beware of the creaky floor in the first floor bedroom - every bounce could be heard!! Slept well in the comfortable bed and the heating was extremely efficient - we never felt cold in spite of the deep snow outside.

Fantastic location - beautiful countryside, and a warm welcome from the hotel and cottage owners. An unusual 3-storey cottage in a converted stable block. The stairways were quite steep so not really suitable for those with restricted motility, but this was advertised in the brochure anyway. We ate in the hotel restaurant and found it of good quality. Absolutely brilliant location, stunning views of the Lake District, Howgills and other ranges and Kendal within easy travelling distance for supermarkets and other market town amenities.
They even have cake tins.

Clean, warm, spacious, extremely well stocked for glasses/cutlery/utensils.
Great value for money, couldn't have asked for better for the price, definitely worth another visit.

I really liked the fact that there were 2 bathrooms. The cottage was clean and homely and it was great to walk in the grounds.
