Stable Cottage is very warm and cosy and beautifully finished and appointed. The level access and wheel-in shower were ideal for me as a wheelchair user. The views are to die for no matter what the weather!

We have just returned from two nights stay with our charming host Sheila. The farmhouse, not far from Hawkshead and Ambleside is a charming and restful place to unwind with wonderful views. Breakfast was excellent, the sitting room with wood burner was warm and comfortable and our bedroom nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. we look forward to staying there again!

Our room was stunning, all of the little touches made the whole experience even more special...all of the food and drink was of the highest quality.

The farmhouse is gorgeous and is located out in farms, a few miles from Ambleside & Hawkshead. It's an incredibly peaceful area, and great to sleep with nothing but the sounds of nature out of your window. Sheila was great and made us feel incredibly welcome. The breakfast is what you'd expect from a B&B on a farm - top... More
