We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stoneyacre - the accommodation was perfect for our young family as it was all on one level and everything that we needed was provided. The only thing that I can think of to suggest for improvement for us would be plastic utensils for children to eat and drink from! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house to a family or to walkers - it is ideally situated for Keswick (just a short drive) and is surrounded by stunning views and countryside to explore. We would definitely book the property again if visiting the area.
We would highly recommend a holiday at StoneyAcre in the Newlands Valley. The accommodation is spacious and fully equipped . The views are absolutely amazing (even in the rain!!!!) and David was a very friendly, helpful and hospitable host.
The location is great for exploring Keswick and the surrounding areas.
A great family holiday and we hope to return in the future.
A good location, great for the nothern /western lakes, not bad for the rest. Unlike other similar size properties we have had, it actually can accommodate 6-7 adults both in the bedrooms, kithchen and the lounge.
The appartment is very very equipped and maintained to a high standard. Every room is clean fresh and well decorated. The huge kitchen is well equipped and sits six comfortably with a fabulous view from the French windows and terraced. The location is quiet and tranquil and couldn't be better for exploring the northern lakes. David's beautiful garden is an added bonus- the perfect place to sit with a cold beer following a day on the fells. Perfect.
Beautiful place. If I could move here, I would. We had an outstanding time. David is a fantastic host, everything you need is at StonyAcre. I would definitely stay here again. Great place, decorated very nicely with lots of Lakes District photographs. Beautiful view, gardens, and valley.
Beautiful cottage in breathtaking location! Perfect weekend away even in the rain. I would highly recommend it and would certainly rebook for future escapes. Thank you.
StoneyAcre ticked every box! Spacious accommodation for a family reunion with large rooms and two bathrooms. Beautiful garden for sitting out in the sun. lots of games in sideboard for rainy day or quiet evening plus large folder of DVDs including a good selection for children. Wi-fi means you can use computer and mobile which is not always possible locally when out and about. The immediate surroundings are very quiet and views are breath taking. There is a stream close by used for gorge walking by the adventurous and footpaths to Causey Pike are within a few minutes walk. There is a handy bench in the entrance hall to put on/take off boots and a large tumble drier to air damp outerwear so ideal for hill walkers in poorer weather. Only niggle is the narrow access road from Braithwaite. there are passing places but other drivers not always keen to slow down and show a bit of courtesy. Route to Portinscale via Swinside Inn (visible from house) has one VERY sharp hairpin bend but longer cars can continue 1/2 mile or so towards Buttermere to turn in large passing area and resume route.
Recommend the Wildlife Park nr Bassenthwaite for family but you can easily spend your time in and around property enjoying the luxury of the peace and calm of the Newlands Valley .
