  • "What an absolutely beautiful cottage, inside and out!"

    The cottage was cosy but spacious, beautiful furnishings and the owners really had thought of everything. The surrounding views were stunning. So peaceful and tranquil. Our children loved feeding the Shetland ponies and seeing the chickens and sheep! A truly relaxing break for all our family.

  • "Booking with easy, clear and transparent especially in the climate (lockdowns) when it was booked."

    The high score goes to Heather and Stephen (owners) who have a beautiful property which was so comfortable and relaxing. We had everything we needed and the cottage was finished to a very high standard. The beds were so cosy and we all slept really well. The surrounding countryside is stunning and there was plenty to do/visit around us. We would happily visit again.

  • "It was lovely to stay on a working farm, albeit quite a quiet and uninvasive one."

    Owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Peaceful location with lovely riverside strolls and local village interest with its many historical mills and craft shops. Cottage was very spacious and cosy.

  • "This was a perfect cottage in a quiet location."

    Just what we needed to have a relaxing and enjoyable break. We've stayed in quite a few cottages, and several from Sykes too, but this one is the best we have stayed in.

  • "Heather and Stephens property is beautiful, the little extras they leave you are amazing and very kind."

    The property also has things you don’t think of taking, things you have at home but don’t think you would need on holiday. They are a very welcoming couple and we will definitely visit again x

  • "What a fantastic place."

    The pictures weren't as good as the reality and we had a fantastic time. Such a relaxed environment in beautiful surroundings and hopefully we'll be back in the not too distant future.

  • "Lovely setting, very homely well equipped cottage."

    Hosts decorated it with a beautiful Christmas tree, lights, decorations and a homemade wreath on the front door making it very 'Christmassy'. M&S Bucks Fizz and chocolate Christmas shortbread awaiting us plus a stocked fridge with essentials include home laid eggs from the hens. Our 16 mth grandson loved the Shetland Ponies, hens, sheep and the farmyard cat who looked liked Bagpuss. We had a wonderful Christmas staying here and it felt like home.. We visited Carlisle, Penrith (excellent choice of supermarkets) pretty shopping centre with many independent retailers, Ullswater and Priests Mill.

  • "Stephen and Heather have really gone out of their way to make this the perfect place to enjoy the local area."

    So many welcome touches!!! So many personal family items in the cottage - which we were free to use and enjoy. A boiler problem was dealt with speedily and effectively... The hens visited the bird feeder outside the kitchen window at breakfast time each morning...charismatic family members - who loved to peer into the room to check up on what we were up to... We had a really fantastic few days at Stockwell Hall Cottage...Thank you!

  • "The accommodation and the owners were fine and nice."

    BUT... As a family of 4 adults and one 7 year old we were all expecting usable WiFi as advertised on your site. Myself and my son for our individual work and the others for their phones, tablets and computers. Due to the weakness of the signal we had to use our phones and set up hot spots to enable some (albeit erratic) wifi connection.

  • "A great welcome from Stephen and Heather, the arrival was magical: the children loved the ponies, we all enjoyed the millionaire cookies waiting for us."

    We also loved the other little touches, like the bird feeder outside the kitchen door- great to watch over breakfast. The cottage was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean- I'd recommend it to anyone. One point- could the wifi be sorted? We'd all love to leave it behind us on holiday, but unfortunately that's not possible, so a good connection would really make a difference. Other than that, the whole experience was absolutely perfect, and the drive into the Lakes to explore every day never failed to get the jaws dropping. Many thanks!

    Everything you could wish for ! When we arrived there was the normal (much appreciated) tea , coffee & sugar, but there was also milk, butter & bacon in the fridge. Bread in the bread bin and fresh eggs. When we went upstairs to the lounge there was a bottle of wine & chocolate shortbread cakes waiting for us too ! When we met the owners they were very friendly and helpful. Definitely highly recommended !!

  • "Being in the peaceful countryside was great, the fact that the bird feeder was filled every day meant that we could relax and watch the birds which we love to."

    When the woodpeckers came down we couldn’t believe it. The cottage was like a home from home,everything you needed was there and a lovely welcome gift from the owners which was really welcome. Great holiday, despite the weather.

    In a great location. Plenty of room for grandkids to run around the garden was fantastic. The animals were a bonus. Ponies. Chickens and a cat. The owner made us feel welcome. We had food in fridge for a breakfast next morning. Would recommend this place to my family and friends. Can't wait to go back.

  • "Stockwell Hall Cottage was an absolute dream - homely, comfortable and spectacularly well-equipped, it was also very beautiful and felt like living in the pages of Country Living magazine."

    It's pristine, and everything is top quality, from the welcome pack with homemade cake and their own free-range eggs, the luxurious bed linen, and the Laura Ashley soap & hand lotion. This is proper rural idyll - we were more in the market for gentle strolls for an hour or two but the location would suit serious walkers too. The views from the upstairs living room were glorious during our sunny spring visit and we loved throwing the doors open wide to look out onto green hills, lambs in the fields and swallows in the air. I took my parents for a week away and they both have limited mobility, but they managed without any trouble. The stairs up to the living room and the upstairs bathroom with the step-in shower aren't steep, they're well lit and have a handrail. We spent most of our time around the large kitchen table or on the sunny patio in any case! Downstairs is step-free between the kitchen-diner, the bedroom and second bathroom, and there's a side patio entrance with one small step so the stone steps to enter the main door can be avoided. Plus you can drive right up to the front door, so it's pretty accessible. The hosts were lovely too - friendly, welcoming and helpful, they were on hand for any questions but also respectful of our space. We were lucky with the weather, but had it rained all week, we'd have been perfectly contented to snuggle up with a good book, or just watch the birds from the window. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

About the location


Gretna Green 13.1 miles; Penrith 19.9 miles; Dumfries 36.2 miles

Carlisle is set in the county of Cumbria, situated just 10 miles south of the Scottish Borders and is nicknamed the Border City. During Roman times the town was established to serve the forts for Hadrian's Wall, which runs east from the city across the country to Wallsend on the east coast and today is recognised as a World Heritage Site. During the Middle Ages, due to its proximity to the Kingdom of Scotland, Carlisle became an important military stronghold and Carlisle Castle, still relatively intact, was built in 1092 by William Rufus, after once serving as a prison for Mary, Queen of Scots. The castle now houses the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment and the Border Regiment Museum. In the early 12th century Henry I allowed the foundation of a priory in Carlisle and the town gained the status of a diocese in 1122, resulting in the priory becoming Carlisle Cathedral. The Settle to Carlisle railway runs across some of the most breathtaking scenery to the popular Yorkshire town and Carlisle Racecourse has a packed fixture list including Ladies’ Day and evening fixtures. Within driving distance is the Victorian seaside town of Silloth and just over the border is Gretna Green, where you'll find the Gretna Gateway Shopping Centre and Anvil Hall, the famous wedding venue.
