    About this property

    This spacious holiday cottage is ideal for a family break with access to Windermere, and many parts of the stunning Lake District and majestic mountains.
    This particularly spacious detached cottage was formerly a cottage and sweet shop in a previous life, and sits in the increasingly popular traditional lakeland village of Staveley within the Lake District National Park. There are excellent walks from the front door, including the final stage of the Dales Way.
    The property offers generous living areas, with a comfortably furnished living room complemented by a wood burner for cosy evenings, a spacious dining kitchen and the addition of a bright and airy sun room with a second table and easy seating.
    Well presented throughout, the cottage has been carefully prepared for guests to enjoy quality furnishings and comfort with a real home from home feel. With the owners’ promise of an unusual welcome pack awaiting your arrival, this delightful property has a lot to offer. Including a courtyard with sitting area and garden furniture, bike store and private parking for 1 car.
    All village services are within a few minutes’ walk including cafes, traditional pubs, restaurants, newsagents, grocers and village bakers - this really is a thriving village!
    Staveley is home to festivals and concerts, quiz nights and regular car boot sales. The phrase ’something for everyone’ seems to be made just for Staveley! The village is on the main bus and train route providing direct access to all far corners and near sectors of lakeland.

    Kentmere Cottage is convenient for outdoor enjoyment, allowing easy access to the central and eastern fells, particularly the High Street range, (named after the Roman road running over the 828 metre summit – the highest point in the eastern National Park), and the much loved Dales Way.

    The Kentmere Valley is an acknowledged hub for mountain bikers, whilst those preferring to cycle easier terrain will enjoy the wealth of popular local routes taking in the unspoilt Kentmere scenery. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    "Only some minor niggles. Heating system had a mind of its own. Someone had obviously messed about with the timer, maybe worth checking between rentals. The rads in the lounge did not work and it was too cold to use. A few more glasses would not go amiss. These are minor easily solved issues. The cottage was well positioned, clean, and well equipped and we would recommend ."

    "Excellent will book again"

    "Very well equipped and plenty of room. Would definitely stay here again!"

    "Kentmere Cottage was everything we needed and more. It was well equipped, comfortable and beautifully presented with plenty of room for a family of five to spread out. This was our first visit to the Lake District and Staverley was a great base to explore from. The bike store and parking for a large car and trailer were very helpful. It was just a shame that the weather was too good to warrant lighting the log fire!"

    "Outstanding location brilliantly equipped this is a great base to explore the Lakes or stay locally Can not find fault with anything in particular in fact it greatly exceeded expectationsStavely is a great village and there are plenty of places to go within itShort trips out to Windermere ambelside are not too far but well worth itLove it"

    "Beautiful cottage with plenty of space in a perfect location. We pick Staveley to holiday time and time again as it has the perfect balance for both the kids and ourselves. There are lots of places to eat, a bakery, butchers, park, playing field and lovely walks, but is still handy for nearby Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere for day trips. Will definitely be back!"

    "The aim was to find a cottage close to the M6 and the Eastern and Central Fells to coincide with the Hawkshead Brewery beer festival just down the road. Staveley is a great centre with the 555 bus stop, Beer Hall, grocery shop, baker, several cafes and butcher all in easy walking distance. The cottage is beautifully fitted out and there is a spacious sun room as you enter, adjoining a very big kitchen which leads on to a large sitting room. The ground floor also includes a downstairs loo and clothes washing and drying facilities. We didn't need the sitting room at all as there is a TV with DVD player in the sun room. The three bedrooms are well presented and there is an en suite bathroom for the master bedroom plus a separate bathroom for the other two rooms. The only negative point is that traffic starts to pass close by the cottage from about 6.00am so light sleepers will be woken unless you sleep in the small room at the back. There are some big trucks from the factories further up the Kentmere valley which use the road. Two small cars will fit on the cottage forecourt.We walked the Kentmere Round (8 hours including breaks), went up Pike o' Stickle and a few other summits from the New Langdale Hotel, did Helvellyn and Catstycam via Swirral Edge (scary in the rain) plus Great Carrs and Swirl How from Wrynose Pass. The beer festival was very good! Have a walk round Craggy Wood where the Cumbria Wildlife Trust is raising funds to purchase the wood from the Lake District National Park Authority https://www.cumbriawildlifetrust.org.uk/appeals/craggy-wood. Thank you for the wine and sausage token - nice touch. We had a great time!"

    "We had a great time especially as the weather was amazing. The children could play in the courtyard safely and we even ate outside a few times. A very spacious property, well equipped and high quality furnishings. Staveley is a lovely village with a shop, post office, bakery, butcher, cafes, brewery etc. so most things available locally. Also a pub and lovely playground, river walk etc etc."

    "Lovely cottage. We loved everything about the cottage, apart from coming home!"
    Meg ‐ 26 Apr 2018
    "Lovely cottage, everything we needed, great location in lovely village with enough pubs, cafes, shops, etc. Cottage tastefully renovated and very comfortable, homely. Would definitely recommend and happily return. Vouchers made a nice alternative to traditional welcome pack and wine was gratefully received."

    "First stay for us at Kentmere Cottage and we were simply amazed by this beautiful cottage, even my 2 teenagers! Ideal location to explore the Lake District and situated in a beautiful, friendly village. Facilities in the cottage were exceptional, we had everything we needed and more. Will definitely be looking to stay again and have already recommended to friends and family."

    "Really lovely home from home cottage, had all that we needed. Set in a beautiful village in the outstanding lake District. After a day exploring kentmere was a joy to come back to"
    David ‐ 6 Jan 2018
    "Very enjoyable stay. Comfortable and cosy cottage with good local amenities and access to Lake District.Unfortunately main sitting room was inaccessible due to flood damage (repair work not completed in time for us). However, it did not prevent us from having a great time."
