We arrived late Thursday evening and to walk into a warm welcoming cottage like this one felt instantly like a home away from home. Just a 10 minute drive from Windermere, Staveley had everything we needed. Great walk on your doorstep, beautiful view from both bedrooms and tucked away enough that you feel you had privacy but aren't a million miles from anywhere! The property has been kitted out so well and had everything we needed. The photos don't do it justice so you'all just need to stay there to enjoy it all! The only thing we would have changed would be to stay longer than three nights! We'll be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us. It really is charming!

The cottage itself really was a prefect retreat for two. Beautifully furnished and clean, a great place to return and relax after a long day of exploring the Lakes.  We both agreed the location was great, really quiet and secluded yet only a short walk to bowness and not much further to windermere where we had plenty of choice for eating and drinking out. We would highly recommend this property and would love to return one day. Thank you for having us!
