“Simply Idyllic.”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

StoneyAcre is a lovely and very spacious apartment set in a beautiful secluded location with panoramic views all around.
I loved the layout of the apartment. The living room and kitchen are a good size. Plenty of room for six adults.
There are numerous beautiful walks in the area and Keswick is only minutes away where you can visit some lovely shops and there are supermarkets if you need to stock up. StoneyAcre is the ideal location for visiting the attractions of the Lake District.
We were made very welcome at StoneyAcre and would very much like to visit again.

“What a great place to stay!”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Luckily for us, we were able to appreciate the stunning views every morning as the sun shone with unfailing regularity. This made it wonderful to sit out in the sun drinking a morning coffee admiring the beautiful gardens and the distant views of the Lake District hills before setting off to climb some, and what a location this is in to allow access to numerous super fells. The accommodation itself is, as had been pointed out in the other reviews, spacious, comfortable and clean. The beds help to provide a good night’s sleep. The kitchen facilities are excellent – so delicious meals can be created without any problems as there is also plenty of space to work in. The lounge is enormous and well furnished with the added delight of many games in the sideboard. The bathrooms allow for great baths and showers at the end of a day in the hills.
StoneyAcre is only a short distance from Keswick which means that it is an ideal base for visiting Keswick and its great Theatre by the Lake.
This was a great place for a quiet celebration when the rest of the family joined us at the weekend.

“A great house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stoneyacre is very spacious with excellent kitchen facilities and very nicely furnished. Milk and a lovely fruit loaf were waiting for us and it was very nice to find kitchen essentials such as oil, herbs, salt and so on. There is also a large selection of games and DVDs for both children and adults. Newlands valley is beautiful particularly as you venture further towards Buttermere, and the views from the house to Cat Bells are amazing, but the narrow road from Braithwaite can be a bit tedious if your return to the house coincides with the convoy of cars leaving the nearby parking area for Causey Pike. We would definitely like to return.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We haven't been to Newlands Valley Before but we will be back. Stoneyacre is an excellent place to stay. Great for walks and cycling. The sights are fantastic. David is very helpful and is there if needed. The apartment is lovely and has everything a family needs. Very comfortable.We hired bikes from Jamie across the valley at Valley Bikes who gives a great service delivering and collecting the bikes for a very good price
We had a great week at Stoneyacre and we will be back. Thanks David.

“Definitely the best property we have stayed in in the Lake District”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Having stayed in the Lake District a few times and always around the Keswick area this is the best property we have ever stayed in. It was clean, well equipped and fitted the description given completely with stunning views. We would definitely stay here again when next visiting and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

“Fantastic family holiday at Stoneyacre”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a brilliant week at Stoneyacre celebrating my mums 60th birthday. We had two young babies with us and 6 adults - the accommodation was both spacious and modern. David made us feel welcome from the outset and clearly maintains the property really well. He lives in the end property and kindly pointed out some walks for us, local pubs. It's a truly gorgeous spot in the newlands valley. Waking up each morning for breakfast looking onto cat bells was very special. I liked that there are 4 properties in total as the rural location then turns into a little community of people. We ate and socialised in both braithwaite (2 miles) and Keswick (5 miles) and personally having stayed in central Keswick before, preferred this option for a group holiday. Would thoroughly recommend for groups - families, walkers etc...and we really hope to return.
