Set in a wildlife garden with panoramic views across the Eden Valley
Stables Cottage, is one of four unique cottages nestling at the foot of Cross Fell, with panoramic views across the lush Eden Valley to the Lake District Fells beyond. The informal wildlife gardens surrounding the cottage are a haven for rabbits, badgers and red squirrels. They are host to dozens of species of migrant and resident birds including woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches, whilst the Fells above us are home to skylarks, curlews, buzzards and peregrine falcons.
The cottage was sympathetically created from a range of ancient stone farm buildings retaining many original features such as beamed ceilings and exposed stonework. All the cottages were refurbished in 2010 with English Oak floors and new bathrooms and all have gas central heating as well as large wood-burning stoves/open fires.
The double arched doorway and internal porch, lead into the open plan ground floor with a lounge area with a large wood-burning stove, a well equipped farmhouse kitchen and a dining area with French doors opening onto the extensive wildlife gardens. Upstairs the cottage has 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and a bathroom with a bath & shower.
