    “A comfortable well equipped cottage but in my opinion, not 5 star luxury.”

    The outdoor area to the back door was difficult to navigate due to the uneven surface and it was slippy due to the rain and algae from the trees.The front access was similar.

The property

Stair Cottage is a restored stone-built home offering luxury accommodation in the village of Stair, in the Newlands Valley. Finished to the most exacting standards, this character cottage has lost none of its country feel during its high-end renovation, making it perfect for a small family or two couples looking to enjoy a luxurious Lake District holiday. The ground floor allows you to cosy up by the wood burning stove and relax in the inviting furniture while looking out through the patio doors - that is if you can tear yourself away from the stunning open plan kitchen and dining area.

The kitchen section has high-end amenities throughout and a large breakfast island, while light oozes into the beautifully modern furnishings of the dining room area, perfect for the finest of dinners.

Upstairs are two sumptuous bedrooms, both with their own TV, with the master benefitting from its own free-standing bath as well as having a luxury en-suite shower room. The gardens to the property are of a traditional country style, with space to the front and rear.

The rear benefits from a small patio area and lawn with an immediate woodland outlook maintaining a relaxing privacy. Stair is the principal settlement within the stunning Newlands Valley, making it an ideal starting point for a day’s walking around the picturesque countryside and also playing host to the Valley’s only pub. Just four miles on are the full amenities of the popular tourist town of Keswick.

Multiple energetic activities are on offer crossing the range of hills between the Newlands Valley and Derwentwater, or at the nearby Newlands Adventure Centre, while the Newlands Valley is also the inspiration for the Beatrix Potter stories. The Newlands Valley scenery is peaceful and breath-taking, and combined with the cottage’s stunning standards this makes a perfect location for a small family or two couples to enjoy a luxury Lake District holiday.
