Stag Cottage, melmerby is a beautiful character cotttage, lots of atmosphere with modern kitchen. Lovely private garden. Situated in village with tasty cafe/bakery and friendly pub serving excellent food. Walks nearby. Welcome hamper with all local produce was really appreciated. Would definitely stay here again. This property has an internal adjoining door to melmerby Hall so ideal if your party has a larger number of guests.
Just got back from a fantastic weekend at Stag Cottage with my friends. Booked as an easter weekend break for us. The location is absolutely beautiful. Rural but within an easy drive of Penrith if you need anything. The cottage has everything you could need for 6 people! The kitchen is more well stocked than my own home! The 3 ensuite bathrooms made it perfect so that no one was waiting around to get showered, washed etc. This is the third time I've stayed in one of Rowley Estates cottages and as with the other two it is the perfect break away from everything. Contact with Jilly and Christine was consistent and they answered all the questions I had within a couple of hours. The fact that it is dog friendly just takes it to the next level. A secure garden so I could let her out to have a run around without having to be on lead was such a plus and what so many cottages lack. Can't wait to book again.

We were delighted with our stay at Stag cottage.
Accommodation was excellent - very comfy bed and linen.
Wifi, t.v, radio all worked well.
As for welcome pack... i've never seen anything quite like it... bread, butter, cereal, juice, toffee, wine, milk etc etc...
Also the kitchen supplies were excellent - herbs and spices, tea towels, washing up liq, dishwasher tabs etc..
Local pub very welcoming although we didn't eat there.
Had breakfast at the village bakery - highly recommended.
This is my second visit back to The Stag (rented along side Melmerby Hall and Kirkbride Cottage). I rented the property to host a yoga retreat and on behalf of myself and guests I can say we were overwhelmed with the weekend. Luxury Accommodation, Beautiful Location, all round perfect venue and much appreciated help when we needed it from the owner/estate manager. Already booked another weekend here and have several more in the pipeline.
