“A must stay for a quiet retreat”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I booked this as a surprise for my boyfriends 23rd birthday following the amazing reviews back in August 2015.
On arrival we were greeted by Elaine and then Stephen showed us around the cottage, making sure we knew where everything was and that we were comfotable for our two night stay. A lovely touch to be greeted with cakes and an amazing Olive and Herb bread which went down well.

The cottage was well equiped and exactly what we were looking for, in a very quiet area, close to the sights and attractions we had on our to do.

Would recommend highly, thankyou both for letting us stay at your lovely cottage.

“Nice and cosy!”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at Stable Cottage for 2 nights 2nd-4th October and can't rate it highly enough! Steve and Elaine were excellent hosts and have really thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. They really go the extra mile with all their thoughtful touches. The cottage is ideally located for exploring the Lake District and is so nice and peaceful. It was so nice to get away from city life for the weekend and we only wish we had booked to stay for longer! We will definitely be back! Katie & Matthew x

“Amazing break away from city life”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thank you for such an incredible weekend, we have enjoyed every moment of it. We brought a lot of food but arrived to lovely homemade goodies! Everything we needed was provided and much more, including bikes allowing us to explore on foot, and a slow cooker for us to come back to after a long day exploring. The locals were so friendly and the bed was so comfy. So much more than we expected- including a map of the local area and a homemade CD. We couldn't have wished for anything better for our first break away as a couple, thank you so much! And we hope to see you again.

“Hidden gem! Fantastic location. Highly recommend.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely welcome including a handwritten and crafted card.

Excellent cottage with full amenities. Wonderful welcome pack, including homemade Olive and herb bread, scones and cake, butter, local cheese, milk, wine, tea, coffee!

The cottage has many resources, you really can travel light with all bedding and towels provided.
Steven was a very amendable host, friendly and warm, gave us excellent local information, hand drawn maps and a very good, comprehensive information pack on the cottage and local area.

We think the value is very good at over half the price of other accommodation we had looked at.

A trip to the beach was as promised, about a 10 minute drive away and a completely deserted beach with amazing views towards Scotland and luckily for us a warm and sunny day.

We spent a day at Derwentwater, strolled through Keswick, then parked at the theatre by the lake and walked down to the the lakeside and had a picnic on the grass, jets flew overhead as well as geese, ducks and swans. It was idyllic.

We found the location to be very good, away from the hustle of the 'Lakes' in a forgotten corner, Cockermouth a few minutes away, where William Wordsworth was born. Quiet roads, great accessibility and wonderful Landscapes. We will definitely visit again, our visit felt like a taster and left us wanting more.
