“Perfect Ashes Cottage”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ashes cottage is surrounded by pure beauty. It is only a 10 minute drive from lake Windermere, and is within walking distance of the village Stavely. Out of its windows you have postcard views of the green valleys (as well the sheep). Inside, you are treated to 5 star luxury, with absolutely everything provided, including wood for the fireplace, charcoal for the BBQ, and board games to play on a rainy day (fortunately we didn't have too many of those). The rooms are warm and bright, with deep carpets and the beds are very comfortable, and there's plenty storage space. It is also immaculately clean.
Andy, who lives close by is a wealth of information, is fun to talk to, and goes out of his way to make the stay more enjoyable.
Highly recommended!

“Luxurious cottage in wonderful location”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The owners have thought of everything . The cottage is well equipped to a high standard and the log fire adds to the cosines on a January evening. There are wonderful views from the back patio and snowdrops were blooming in the garden. A peaceful retreat but not far from attractions in the area. We will certainly recommend this cottage and hope to return.

“Perfect new year getaway”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We will certainly be coming back to stay in Ashes cottage. The cottage was just beautiful and was a lot more than we expected. Perfectly and tastefully decorated, gorgeous views, and nothing beats a glass of wine by a roaring fire after a chilly days walking. A 15 minute walk across the fields and you are in the local village which is so quaint and has everything you need including a gorgeous cafe in and amongst an antique shop!
I would love to come back in the summer and sit out on the gorgeous patio watching the world go by, which I can only imagine is a sun trap!
Our New Years getaway will be one to remember and we cannot wait to go back soon!

“Ashes Cottage was the perfect getaway to celebrate the Christmas holiday in the English countryside.”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The cottage was beyond expectations and brought all the comforts of home in a beautiful landscape. The home offered everything one would desire; warm beds, a welcoming fireplace and lounge, and a fully functional kitchen. The area was absolutely stunning and was most certainly our favourite part of the trip! From the narrow lanes to the public foot paths through the sheep fields, Ashes Cottage is perfectly situated to provide a great escape in a beautiful area of England. Thank you again Liz & family. We look forward to another visit!
