“Gorgeous little cottage”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

This is our 2nd stay in a River Runs By, and will not be our last. We love the comfy, cosiness of the cottage right in the middle of the village. So well situated (behind the butcher) and well equipped with all the 'white goods' you require such as a dishwasher/washing machine, you can cook as if at home! Beautiful views out nearly every window, you are mesmerised by the river under the balcony. Just make sure you read the manual to work the heating - and check that the radiators are turned on at the boiler!! Tv reception fine and wifi worked well on my ipad. Only downside is the main shower is downstairs and can get a bit chilly in the winter if you don't let the room heat up first (our 1st stay was a very cold & snowy January weekend)but the upstairs bathroom is lovely and warm! Parking is quite tight as you have to make sure you are not blocking in the village residents, also the lane to get to the cottage is tight too - but next door have a 4x4 so it can be done! The owner is lovely and more than happy to help with any queries / return visitors

Response from the owner Thank you for your feedback - I am delighted you like the cottage so much and look forward to welcoming you back :-)

“Spot on in every way.”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2013

The cottage is deceptively large, with plenty of space for me, my wife, sister in law, niece and dog! Every room is well equipped and finished to a high standard. We visited in October so the river was in full flow and it could be heard from the master bedroom and living room which was beautifully relaxing. But not disturbing if you wanted to talk or have the tv on. Views from master bedroom into the hills were also a delightful way to wake up. With regards to the location, Stavely is ideal with all you need locally including a brilliant bakers, butchers, chip shop and well stocked Spar. But within easy driving distance of Coniston, Windemere, Tarn Hows, Kentmere, Kendall and much more. Will definitely be back.

“"A river runs by"... perfect cottage for exploring south east La”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

This cottage was spot-on in every way. Tucked away behind the main street in Staveley the cottage was cosy , clean and comfortable. Extremely well equipped kitchen and lovely lounge with a small balcony overlooking the gurgling river. Great shower room downstairs with toilet and basin as well a bathroom upstairs. There was a large selection of Dvd's as well as numerous books and leaflets on all the activities and walks available in the area. It had a real home-from-home feel. Staveley has everything in the way of shops, cafes and pubs. It even has it's own brewery.We ate in both of the pubs and had great value meals. Starlys restaurant is a delight and well worth booking as it only opens on Thurs, Fri and Sat evenings.

“Relaxing week”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

Thanks Helen, We had a lovely week in the cottage with some gentle and picturesque walks right from the doorstep. We enjoyed watching the birdlife with the kingfisher and a pair of dippers using your balcony as a look out post, the heron was regularly in the river for breakfast and freshwater crayfish could be seen scurrying around! The cottage was comfortable, cosy and short of nothing,with plenty of hot water and a great shower as well as a bath. The village is lovely with an artisan bakery, coffee shop and brewery with their own excellent take on tapas. Travelling to Windermere was a pleasure by train from Staveley and much easier/cheaper than driving and parking. This is an excellent base for biking or hiking and the view from Reston Scar (as seen from the bedroom window)is well worth the climb.

“beautiful, well equipped, excellently located little cottage”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2013

we've stayed at a River Runs By twice now and both times it's been a fantastic experience. The cottage is beautifully decorated and cosy, with all the necessary modern features and fittings. Its always left incredibly clean and welcoming, and the location is unbeatable if you want to explore the lakes. It is small, but for 2-3 people there's plenty of space. We'll definitely be going back!

“Lovely cottage, well situated, warm, clean and well equipped”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2012

Had a great week at River runs by. Found everything we needed and more at the cottage. Well situated in lovely village. Unfortunately weather not too good, but hey you cant have everything!

“Wonderfully relaxing”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2012

Had a wonderfully relaxing time with superb weather to boot - just what we needed. Cottage was tastefully decorated and extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly need and more! The welcome pack was also a nice touch. Loved having breakfast sitting on the balcony over the river looking at the view. Shame the brewery in Staveley didn't stay open till later though - fab beer!

“comfortable, conveniently situated cottage.”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2012

We stayed for a week in this lovely cottage at the mouth of Kentmere, halfway between kendal and windermere. Lots of walks from the village and good access to central Lakes.Cottage had everything we needed. Good coffee shops, saw a fab play at the roundhouse theatre and went to Kendal for craft workshop (card making). Woulf definately return.

Response from the owner Glad you had such a lovely stay and that you have been back several times since. Thank you for your feedback
