A really nice cottage in a great location. Short drives to Cockermouth and Keswick. Chris and Christine were really welcoming and helpful, the cottage was spotless and had everything we needed when we were there.
Was a lovely cottage in a good location to get to all the sights you want to see. A lovely local pub was in near by gilcrux called the masons arms very nice and also dog friendly just like the cottage which is a big plus. The only thing to mention is the heating isn't great but that was taken care of by our lovely hosts when they gave two plug in heaters which were set up already. The fire once it gets going was lovely and cosy. Very good value for money and lovey hosts.
My husband, dog and I are currently enjoying our 2nd night of 3 at Stable Cottage. It’s a wonderful and cosy, the log fire really warms you up after a day out walking. It is in a great location, plenty of local walks nearby and a great pub called the Masons that does delicious food. The cottage has everything you need, the kitchen is well equipped, smart TV with Netflix, V.good WiFi, log fire, comfy bed, washing machine, nice bathroom, private garden and off road parking. Our hosts Chris and Chrissy have been great, really friendly and our welcome pack included wine, cheese, milk, butter, dog treats and home made cake, chutney and jam. There are lots of little things like walking guides, binoculars, fresh towels etc...that have made our weekend really easy. We would definitely recommend.
We had the loveliest welcome from the host despite arriving late in the evening.
We were welcomed with a hamper filled with hand made food items and a bottle of wine.
The shower was very powerful, comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and a lovely outside area to sit or let dogs out.
Can’t wait to return soon!
We loved your little cottage so peaceful and cosy with everything we needed. Ideal location for exploring the beaches and lakes so the best of both worlds for us. Christine and Chris are very friendly and made us feel so welcome, and the homemade goodies were a lovely touch...Many thanks for that. Also the local pub the Mason Arms did excellent food which was great value for money and even better we got 10% from the bill. Great place will definatly be back.
Lovely cottage with a nice homely feel. Lovely welcome pack and very welcoming hosts. Nice retreat out of the way cottage very well equipped any cosy nights in .
I decided to book this little cottage after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures. It sounded perfect for us and our little dog. We found it really easy using a sat nav but do be aware it's off the beaten track so really small roads leading up to it, approach slowly as your not aware what's coming around the bends. Was warmly greeted by christine and a nice welcome pack. The cottage is really well equipped and has everything you would need for your stay including some useful books and leaflets of the area. The cottage was clean enough, a few cobwebs here and there and a damp patch behind the sofa. The stairs are as described, even I had trouble getting up and down steadily and am 34!! Plus my dog did try to follow me up and fell down them so had to block them with a chair to stop him investigating. Maybe a stair Gate might be a idea for doggy guests. The garden is to a degree fenced off bar a little side bit along the cottage which just had a bin blocking it which my dog did try to get by so unfortunately we had to make sure we took him out on his lead so he didn't get out. There is parking but only a little bit of a muddy verge with only room for 3 cars and unfortunately on one occasion when we got back after a long day they were all taken and we had no where to park. We had to bump it up into the hedge to fit off the road. It would be nice if guest could use the driveway of the owners instead so this didn't happen again. We also got woken up twice in a row to hammering and drilling as the owners were having building work done, so not so much as a romantic get away. As we left there was no one around to give the key to so had to post it through the letter box. All in all I was a little bit disappointed as I was looking forward to our stay and my week off work.
