Our Staveley cottages are the gateway to wonderful walking,
cycling, riding and fishing in and around the beautiful Kentmere
Stretching for almost ten miles and crisscrossed with ancient
bridleways, the valley is a superb region for mountain biking.
Salmon, trout, freshwater pearl mussel and white-clawed crayfish
attract anglers from near and far. Walkers and climbers, meanwhile,
head to the peaks of the 12-mile Kentmere Round. Interesting walks
directly from the village include Spring Hag, Craggy Wood and
Reston Scar, the latter offering sensational views across South
Lakeland. Or explore the nature reserve at Dorothy Farrer's
Spring Wood, managed by Cumbria Wildlife Trust.
For stylish shopping, exclusive entertainment and top-class
tuition, Staveley Mill Yard is a clever mill conversion featuring a
collection of shops, workshops, galleries and more. Highlights
include an artisan bakery, organic meats, homemade ice-cream, the
Hawkshead Brewery, an amazing bike shop and bespoke furniture. You
can get creative at the cutting-edge photography school. Or learn
how to conjure up a delicious three-course meal at the
award-winning cookery school.
The village offers a whole range of other amenities including a Post Office, chemist, mini-market and two pubs, one renowned for its Cumbrian cuisine and locally brewed ales. Other attractions include the Church of St. James, with its splendid stained glass window and Staveley's annual carnival in July - a whole weekend of celebrations highlighted by a colourful Brazilian-style parade. It's a fantastic time to book a Staveley cottage and soak up the atmosphere of this delightful Lakeland village!
