With two bedrooms, this cottage has been tastefully and considerately restored to offer accommodation for up to three people, making it an idyllic hideaway for small families. This stone-built cottage offers privacy and seclusion for couples or small families looking to spend some time together. All the accommodation is laid out over a single storey and is arranged in an open plan style. The views of Morecambe Bay and the Kentmere Valley are truly remarkable and the shared grounds give visitors the opportunity to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining during the hazy summer evenings. In the colder months, the property is turned into a warm and... cosy snug, being heated by storage radiators and an atmospheric woodburning stove.

Town: Just five miles from the famous town of Windemere, Staveley is truly in the heart of the Lakelands. This charming village is just a stone's throw from the borders of the Lake District National Park and offers wonderful and scenic opportunities for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. The village itself is well-served by a number of shops, a trio of pubs and a railway station, offering relaxing rides through the surrounding countryside. Nearby attractions include the famous Lake Windemere, where you can soak up the spectacular panorama from a boat or take a ferry trip to the Lakeside Aquarium or the Grizedale Forest Park.

Service from owners excellent; called round to see us, friendly, helpful and sorted out a Wifi issue.
Bungalow well equipped and location superb. Near Staveley with local shops, brewery and 2 pubs. Large garden great for the dogs. Very quiet and peaceful.
Liked least? Not a problem, but the lounge area was very small

Fine location for Eastern Lakes
Left on 09/16/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | AB
The location is really beautiful and the cottage, though small, is very comfortable. A good place from which to explore the South East of the Lakes.
We also had brilliant weather which helps.
The only downside is the fact that this cottage is so near the much larger rental property next door. The people there for our week were fine, but we still felt "outnumbered" at times.
