“Excellent Cottage, Excellet Value”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here in July 2014 and had a fantastic 3 days - wish we could have stayed longer. The owner was lovely and was there to greet us and had baked bread, cakes, got cheese, butter and a bottle of wine for us - amazing and v generous. The cottage was lovely and cosy and we got full use of the bbq and outside space as the weather was so good. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend this. Close to lovely beaches, which we took our dog to and gorgeous walks round about. 10/10

“An excellent country retreat”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stable cottage is an ideal base to explore the Lake District from, it's location allows trips to the beach, to the lakes or even just to the pub! I would definitely reccomended this cosy cottage for a relaxed weekend (or longer) away.

“Lovely cottage!”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I booked the cottage for my Dad's birthday and it was a lovely unforgettable time!

The cottage was lovely and the welcome pack waiting to greet us on arrival was such very welcoming. The cottage is well equipped with everything you would need for a very relaxing time.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering booking the cottage and hope to go back there soon for a much longer stay.

Dear Richa Bless you for leaving such a lovely review. We hope your Dad enjoyed his birthday treat despite the weather. We promise that,contrary to what most people think, it does not always rain in the Lake District! Hopefully if you come again , which we very much hope you will, the sun will shine for you. Kindest Steve & Elaine.

“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
