This B*B behind/next to a great café and gift shop is a real treasure. There are about 5-6 historical cottages so you can choose size. Hosts are very friendly and have finished the cottages with quality touches. Looking forward to returning,

We spent a night in the charming Touchwood Cottage while visiting Stanley to climb the Nut, utilising two of the three bedrooms. What a beautiful house - the oldest privately owned cottage in Stanley, built sometime around 1840. The cottage is so tastefully furnished, it was almost like stepping back in time, but with all the modern conveniences like hot... More

We arrived to find the antique table set for afternoon tea complete with freshly baked blueberry muffins. The studio cottage was immaculate and beautifully styled with antiques and a very comfortable bed. We could not fault this accommodation and will certainly stay there again.

Stumbled upon this gem late afternoon after a full day in the car-located in the Main Street we called the mobile number more out of desperation than appeal. The price was reasonable & the owner was only a few minutes away and offered us a look. He showed us the studio and wow! Old world charm with stone walls and... More
