“Accomodation of the highest quality...”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We would highly recommend Stable Cottage - having been greeted with homemade lemon slices, herb and jalapeno bread, homemade scones, homemade marmalade, lake district cheese and wine, we knew from the start that we was going to enjoy this stay!

The owner - Steve - made us feel welcome instantly and gave us the guided tour of the cottage which was exactly what we was after. It was comfortable and fully equipped for a short break. The welcome pack was also highly detailed however this wasn't really needed as Steve gave us all of the information that we needed.

The location of the cottage was ideal for us as it is a short drive away from various local amenities and most of the key locations in the Lake District.

The only downside is that we didn't spend more time in the cottage as we didn't get to explore the area as much as we would have liked!

Will definitely be back next time we are in the lakes.

Dear Natalie & Daniel. Many thanks for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have you stay at Stable Cottage. Only sorry that the snow and ice defeated your attempt to get to the summit of Scafell Pike when you were so close!. Maybe that's an excuse to come in the better weather to make another attempt and if you do you will certainly be most welcome again at Stable Cottage.Kindest Elaine & Steve

From the moment I began contacting Stephen, I was welcomed and never felt stressed about the entire process. This continued when I arrived and just got better and better. The cottage is beautiful, perfect for two people looking for a quiet relaxing getaway. On arrival we were met with an array of home baked goodies, a fridge filled with the vitals and many brochures and maps of the surrounding areas to help with deciding what to do during our stay. The electric fire kept us nice and toasty during the evenings and the kitchen had every utensil you could possibly want! We took our dog with us and the secure back garden was fantastic for letting her out without fears of escape! I would 100% recommend this place to friends and family and anyone else who happens to wish to stay in that neck of the woods. Will definitely be returning in the future! Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!!

Dear Chris & Sophie. Thank you for your very kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and certainly hope that we can have the pleasure of welcoming you again sometime. Great that your classic car was up to the highways and by ways (and sometimes very steep passes) of the Lake District and that you had a safe journey home to Peterborough. Best regards Elaine & Steve.
