Great location, really well equipped lovely cottage. We particularly liked having the garage to keep bikes and wet muddy clothes in. Fantastically thought out for pets too; our dog loved it and we didn't have to worry about muddy paw prints on cream carpets! We hope to return in the near future. Read more

Great location, peaceful, nice holiday cottage

Real nice holiday cottage, 20mins walk into town. The cottage itself is real nice, clean, warm plenty of character and the bedrooms are perfect both on suite. You do have phone coverage but internet data access is slow (o2), so the kids will go crazy :-) There is a room to dry out your wet clothes, the living room and kitchen is well laid out with plenty of cups plates pots and pans and all the equipment to make a good meal etc. The service we received from the cottage holiday group was real good.
Bad point: Winter months in the pouring rain walking down the road is a little bit dangerous as there are no street lighting and limited footpaths, so carry a torch and all is fine.
Bottom line: I would recommend this cottage to anyone, and I certainly would use this again.
Thank you all at Cottage holidays for a great time. Read more

The pictures of this cottage don't do justice. It is very cosy and the heating keeps it nice and warm. We had a lovely autumn break at the stables. The views where stunning and the trail to Orrest head was just down the road. would thoroughly reccomend to anybody. Gabriel & Hannah Neale Read more

Beautifully decorated, clean, well-appointed cottage. We really enjoyed our short stay here and particularly appreciated being able to bring our dog with us. The views are stunning, yet the property is very close to Windermere and Bowness on Windermere. Read more

An excellent comfortable, cosy home from home. Well planned, designed and laid out, furnished and finished to high quality, located within easy reach of everything we needed. Ravishing views. Rabbits on the lawn and deer wandering free. Good food and friendly staff at The Sun just down the road. Top marks for a wonderful property

Fantastic cottage. The views were amazing and the location was perfect, close enough to town but also far enough away to be peaceful. The cottage was lovely and had everything you would need. Watching the sunset at Orrest Head really is an amazing experience. Would highly recommend and look forward to going back.

A beautiful cottage in one of the most picturesque areas of the UK. Spaceous and clean with all amenities provided. 2 great sized bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms. We have recommended The Stables to all of our friends and family.

After making a last minute decision to go to the Lake District we were very lucky to find availability at the Stables. I didn't expect much having booked so late so I was a bit wary but The Stables is a fantastic place. The views are fantastic looking down the valley with the lake in view. It is a 5 minute drive out of the centre of Windermere and Bowness but without the bustle.
The house is large and open plan with two large bedrooms which are very well decorated and the beds are huge and comfy. A big en-suite in each room, one with a bath. The house has everything you need if you want to cook. Home from home. There is a private garden, a dedicated parking space to complete the picture.
I wish we could have stayed there more than our allotted 3 days. But will be back the next time I get to the lakes.
