“A cute place in a small Lake District town”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

5 The Banks is in a small town that is very close to Windemere. The booking and getting into the house was very easy. Parking was right in front of the house, so it was very easy so you don't have to worry about finding a parking spot.

The house is clean and bright. It is very nicely decorated. It felt very homey. There was a book with information about the places around there to walk to, visit or eat. We went to one of the places recommended in an antique shop for breakfast. It was a great recommendation and we had good food and a great time chatting with the owner.

I would not recommend arriving too late in the dark, it is hard to navigate. It is a great location to be based out of when visiting the Lake District. We walked around the area and it was nice and quiet with very little tourists.

Thank you for your lovely review. If any guest knows they will be arriving in the dark I can arrange for the porch light to be switched on which would make their entrance easier.

“Excellent cottage stay in the Lake District”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Had an excellent stay at this delightful property in May 2016 for 2 nights and would have really liked to stay longer. The house was extremely cosy and spotlessly clean. The owner Eileen was extremely quick to respond to any messages left through Trip Advisor. Would definitely like to return in the not too distant future. Thanks for a great stay!

“Cosy and welcoming”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely stay in Staveley. The house was perfect for a weekend to unwind and explore the Lake District. The space was very welcoming, clean and cosy. Eileen was great to deal with, quick to respond and kind. We wish we could have stayed longer!

“A 3 day break @ 5 The Banks”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A very pleasant break in Staveley, 3 nights away in a wonderful cottage. This house has been finished to a very high standard with some great features giving it a home like feeling. The local pub is a great place to eat and it's only a few minutes in the car from Windermere and surrounding areas. Hope to be back sometime in the future as we loved our stay. Thanks.

Very well specified accomodation in a really great spot. The house has all the facilities you need and are all modern and well thought out. It would make an excellent base for a walking holiday. Really enjoyed are stay and the communications and instructions were all very straightforward and easy to follow.
