We absolutely loved Stable cottage! We arrived to a beautifully clean cottage and delicious home baked cakes and eggs plus milk for our much needed brew! There's plenty of room for the children to run and play outside surrounded by gorgeous views. There's home grown veg to sample and friendly pets to stroke. The cottage is just slightly north of...

Wow, this place was awesome. Very clean and beautiful. The views were so lovely, the hosts were just as awesome.they gave us eggs , milk, coffee and sugar on arrival. Lots of places to visit around the lake district. We got more than we expected. Very child and family friendly. We will definitely visit again soon.

Absolutely stunning cottage, the photos really do not do it justice! Impeccably clean and had everything you'd require. Natalie and John were extremely helpful and welcoming. There are many lovely comments in the guest book, maybe guests should also leave their comments here too. I will certainly recommend to friends and family.

About the neighbourhood
Wigton<BR><BR>With a charter granted in 1262, the traditional Cumbrian market town of Wigton still holds a market each Tuesday in the covered market hall. This lovely town is a popular centre for shopping, pubs and restaurants, as well as for other activities such as theatre, bowls, swimming, tennis and other sports. Wigtonian The Lord Melvyn Bragg novel, 'A Time to Dance', featured the town of Thurston, which was based on Wigton and the local area. The town is just 18 miles from Penrith and so makes an excellent base from which to explore the cathedral city of Carlisle, the North Lakes and the natural beauty of the West Cumbrian Coast. The epic Roman construction, Hadrian's Wall, is within 25 miles, whilst the Scottish borders and their famous town of Gretna Green... more
