The Wheelhouse is an excellent holiday cottage. Everything is fresh, clean and high spec. Couldn't ask for more! As a base for a walking holiday, it's perfect, with loads of walks in the area.

“what a fabulous find!”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

One particular thing I would recommend to anyone, especially with an over 60s free bus pass, is to take advantage of the very impressive bus service from Staveley. Although we enjoyed some really lovely walks directly from the Wheel House itself, we were able to thoroughly enjoy bus rides through to Ambleside, Grassmere and Keswick from which we also enjoyed some delightful walks. The bus ride itself ,especially from the upper deak was in itself fabulous, but then to be able enjoy the other wonderful walks from other areas of the the Lakes was a real bonus. Staveley and in particular the Wheel house is the perfect base to spend a decent length of time, not just a few days. We had a really special holiday. One definitely to be remembered for a long time to come!

We stayed at The Wheelhouse for a long weekend Thurs to Fri for a girls quiet break away. From the booking process the arrival to when we left we could not fault anything, the communications were excellent and the property is outstanding especially the sauna.
The property is immaculately clean with all mod con fittings carried out to a high specification. Located in a quiet village - which suited us. It served as an excellent base for us to travel to all locations in around The Lake District without the hustle and bustle of staying in those areas.
We also discovered some lovely local walks in and around the area and everyone was very friendly . A lovely get away retreat! will definitely be booking to stay again

“Top quality holiday home with great facilities ideally located for walkers and cyclists.”

We were told about this brand new holiday home by family, and after staying in it over Christmas and New Year it is definitely somewhere we will come back to. The owners have thought about what they have done and the facilities and layout were ideal for our family but would also suit groups. It is a top quality, well finished and equipped holiday home for just chilling out in or for walking or cycling enthusiasts. The downstairs had everything we needed and the kitchen was excellent and very well equipped. The lounge area is lovely and cosy and the touches the owners have added make you feel like your staying with friends. The map on the dining table is a great idea, as is the sauna, which was well used and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfortable and the zip link is huge!! The local shop is 2 minutes away and the pub a further minute. We were able to start and finish our walks with the dog from the the front door and when we got wet the facilities to wash boots etc were ideal and the drying room worked a treat. Although we didn't have them with us this time the cycle store looked great and would easily fit 6/7 bikes in it. There's parking at the rear for 2 cars and a further 1 at the front. The owners have thought about what they have done here and I couldn't find anywhere else that offered what this one had. We had a great time there and we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for providing such a beautiful holiday home.

My first visit to the wheelhouse did not disappoint. Very spacious, cosy and comfortable, with a plethora of mod cons - I particularly like the digital kettle and sauna.

The wheel house is a great base for exploring the beautiful Lake District. With the famous lake Windermere just 7 miles away and some of the best scenic walking/cycling routes starting right in Staveley you sure will have plenty to do.

The beds, I have to mention the beds. They are so so comfortable, so much it may take some highly sparked motivation for an early rise if the night previous brought some of our famous british weather with it. But, if the situation did arise the eagle and child which is a few 100 metres down the road is a lovely traditional country pub which we received a lovely warm welcome from the staff and locals. Instead you can take full advantage of the sauna, which I did on a few occasions. What a pleasure to have this facility.

I really do recommend the wheel house.
