Why CHRIS chose Cumbria

,WE BOUGHT THE COTTAGE 9 YEARS AGO BECAUSE WE LOVED THE POSITION IT WAS IN AND THE WARM COZY ATMOSPHERE THE HOUSE HAD DESPITE ITS UNMODERNIZED CONDITION. AFTER A YEAR OF HARD WORK EXPOSING ORIGINAL FEATURES LIKE THE FIREPLACE,OAK BEAMS AND UPSTAIRS FLOORBOARDS AND ADDING MODERN ESSENTIALS WE DECIDED TO LET THE COTTAGE TO HOLIDAYMAKERS WITH MANY GUESTS RETURNING SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS.WE ALSO HAVE OUR HOLIDAYS HERE WITH THE KIDS. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PLACE AS MUCH AS WE DO.

Perfect in every way..

  • 5 of 5

Pear Tree Cottage was the perfect place for our week long holiday in the Lake District. It is a very cosy cottage, ideal for two (although sleeps 4) with a great log burner and all the amenities you could wish for. Set in beautiful surroundings and with fantastic walks right from the front door and good food at the local pub meant there was no need to go further afield if we didn't feel like it. Although, Kendal (10mins) Windermere (10mins), Ambleside (20mins), Grasmere & Hawskhead (30mins) Langdales (25mins) and Keswick (50mins) all made for fantastic days out for long walks, it was always a treat to come home to Pear Tree cottage for a glass of wine and sit in front of the log burner,... a perfect way to end the day. Thank you Chris, we will definitey return.

Cosy cottage. Great base for walking.

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay here, the cottage was very cosy and we enjoyed the log fire on a couple of cooler nights.

The cottage came equipped with pretty much everything you’d need for a stay there. It was nice that dishwasher tablets were provided as some cottages we’ve stayed in don’t provide. As a suggestion we would have liked a pint of milk in the fridge for a cup of coffee on arrival to compliment the tea/coffee already provided.

The weather was amazing and we went walking every day .

Staveley village has some great eateries and coffee shops. The artisan bread from the local bakery was delicious.

The parking was somewhat tight - we have a big car so had to carefully reverse up the drive and manoeuvre a few times to make sure we didn’t block access to the gate at the bottom of the driveway. However this probably wouldn’t be an issue for a smaller car.

Our daughter loved her bedroom, and I found our bed and pillows to be extremely comfortable, which is a fantastic bonus for me as I often sleep badly when away, not this time - I slept like a log every night!!

The walk up to Reston Scar behind the cottage was brilliant, the views magnificent, perfect for a sunny evening walk.

Thank you very much for the use of your cottage. We will definitely comeback to the lakes!

lovely cozy cottage on the quiet outskirts of Staveley

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Chris's cottage. This little house has been beautifully and subtly renovated, with everything we could possibly want--woodburning stove, internet and TV, walking access to some wonderful hill walks, and all that Staveley has to offer--brewery, bakery, butcher, little supermarket. We can't wait to come back.

Lovely Lake District Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Pear Tree Cottage. Tucked in just up the hill from the River Kent (you can hear the river when you open to the window or step out the door), we could trot into Staveley to pick up what we needed at the local butcher, bakery and grocer. When we got tired of cooking in, the pub is an easy 10-minute stroll through town or the local brewery is even closer. We could walk along the footpath just beside the place up the hill or take a quick drive to the closest lake we wanted to explore (check out the Ullswater--numerous walks, plus you can take the steamer boat if you get tired). The cottage is furnished with everything you need to cook in, comfortable beds (queen and 2 twins), and shower/ bathroom. The seating area with wood stove and SkyTV makes chilly, wet late winter nights in a pleasure. Clean, warm, cozy yet bright updated cottage. Chris, the owner, is very responsive and able to answer any questions. Will certainly stay here again when we next get to the Lake District.

Relaxing break in this characterful hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Currently travelling home for our wonderful 3 night break at this cosy and welcoming cottage, planning our next return!

We had a wonderful time. The cottage was extremely clean and tidy and we loved the original features like the exposed oak beams and stones. It had all the modern amenities whilst staying totally in keep with the traditional country cottage features. It was just what we were looking for.

Relaxing by the log fire of an evening was a real treat, and we were lucky to be blessed with a beautifully sunny Saturday as we stayed, which was lovely to wake up to through the little bedroom window.

The area is excellent for walks, we had a great day out in Grasmere.

Thank you for a fantastic break, we hope to return very soon!
