I booked a suprize 3 night break staying in the stables cottage for my daughter. its home from home and spotlessly clean. Mark was wonderful he made my booking 100% worry free and sending plenty of information. The surrounding area was very quiet with lovely people and beautiful scenery. Just what was needed. My daughter had a wonderful stay and I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
We have just spent 6 days at The Stables, a lovely cottage perfect for a family of five. We were impressed with its cleanliness and attention to detail. It is like a home from home and you needn't worry about bringing anything you need to run a home. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, kettle, toaster, cookware, fridge freezer and even a washer drier. This was an added bonus as we returned home with muddy clothing every day. The bedrooms are immaculate with comfy beds and clean fresh linen and towels. The bathroom was spotless. We love the stone work and the decor throughout. We were even welcomed with a box of chocolates. Thank you very much. Perfect cottage for a family of five. Our 3 children loved the layout of their bedroom too as it allowed them to stay together. Our only criticism is poor Wifi and mobile reception. Wifi works best upstairs.
The area is very quiet and peaceful, yet close to town center and major supermarkets. We even got our Tesco groceries delivered to our door on arrival. The location is easily accessible to all major popular places to visit. This is a very quiet area of the Lake District, not overcrowded by holiday makers for this time of the year. So you really get to experience the peace and quiet of the forests and lakes.
We will definitely choose these cottages again with our extended family in the future. Mark was really helpful with the booking process and responded to all emails fairly quickly. Thank you very much. We loved your cottage!
Me and my friends really wanted a getaway over the weekend due to the stresses of life. We found this last minute and enquired about booking it. Unfortunately this particular property was booked but Mark advised the one next door was available which we took.
The property is a short drive from Keswick where we did a great hike and had a nice lunch.
Mark the owner is great even though my bank had stopped the payment going through Mark did not pester us about the payment and was completely understanding over the fact, he arranged for us to pay his neighbours in cash. Mark seems to be a great host, he gave us a list of things we could do and even a box of chocolates which was a nice touch.
The area itself is perfect nice and quite perfect to recharge. I left for the cottage stressed and unhappy and came back rested and happy. I would definitely look at coming back here.
Just back from an enjoyable 2 night stay here. The Stables offers clean, modern and comfortable accommodation at reasonable rates in a quiet location. Everything we needed was provided and there is even a games room on site with a full size snooker table. Would definitely recommend.
Great cottage, very clean, comfortable beds
Wood burning stove makes it super cosy. Will definitely book again. Very attractive price.
My friend and I have just spent 4 days here to celebrate my birthday. Mark the owner was kind enough to leave a very large box of chocolates for us. The cottage is excellent, spotlessly clean,with exposed beams and stonework. It's located down a small quiet lane, in a village close to Cockermouth. We would definitely recommend this as a holiday destination and hopefully will be returning.
Stayed at The Stables for 2 nights in November 2015. The cottage is in a lovely location and is surprisingly easy to find.
The cottage is welcoming, comfortable and spacious and has all the facilities you could need for either a short or longer stay - the box of chocolates left by the owner was a very nice touch. There is also a games room shared between the three cottages which is a really nice addition.
All told, would thoroughly recommend and will definitely stay again when back in the area!
