    “We had such a great time in this adorable little cottage, so close to Lake windermere and Ambleside.”

    Lovely little pubs in Staveley itself and 5 minutes walking distance. Little spar shop for essentials and a pharmacy opposite side of the road. Inside the cottage was everything you need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay, we will definitely be coming back.
