Tucked away in the sleepy village of Old Hutton, you will find the impressive dwelling of The Old Stables.

With incredible views of the encompassing fields and luscious landscapes, this attractive dwelling offers a superb setting for any celebration.

Be welcomed into a gorgeous and contemporary navy blue kitchen boasting a striking Belfast sink and a traditional gas range cooker, where you can show off your culinary skills as you prepare a mouth-watering family feast for all to enjoy at the sociable dining table.

Take three steps up to the restful sitting room complete with three plush sofas providing space for everyone and an open fire, and continue the evening with a captivating movie on the flat-screen TV.

Escape the excitement of the group as you indulge in a long and relaxing soak in the luxurious free-standing bath that sits within the tranquil ground-floor bathroom.

A handy cloakroom can also be found resting on the ground floor, where you can quickly freshen up before setting about your day.

Discover a charming double bedroom and a twin bedroom.

Climb the winding staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by a breath-taking master bedroom, beautifully designed with a spacious super king-size bed, a homely seating area and a free-standing bath with a basin and WC that takes centre stage.

Here you will also find large patio doors exuding light that lead out onto the back garden, where you can delight in some stargazing as you take a dip in the fabulous hot tub.

The first floor also hosts a double bedroom with the benefit of an en-suite shower room, and an additional double with ample space to store all of your belongings.

Make the most of warm summer evenings with dinner alfresco-style out on the front decking, watching as the sun sets on another splendid day in the countryside.

Embrace your stunning surroundings with days spent exploring the nearby town of Kendal with tours of the Quaker Tapestry and Kendal Museum, or see the imposing local landmarks of Kendal Castle and Miller Bridge.

See the magnificent medieval fortress of Sizergh Castle and the Elizabethan Levens Hall.

Outdoor enthusiasts will relish in a day in the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or challenging themselves with a hike up the peaks of Scafell Pike and Reston Scar, both resting within the Lake District National Park, or Gragareth and Aye Gill Pike within the Yorkshire Dales.

Enjoy a fun family day out to the nearby Lakeland Maze Farm Park and Lakeland Wildlife Oasis, or travel to the popular spot of Bowness-on-Windermere for a relaxing boat ride on the lakes.

With so much to see and do in the Cumbria Countryside, The Old Stables is the perfect setting for your next family escape!

    “We stayed in this cottage for a long awaited weeks holiday in May 2021, we were not disappointed!”


    The cottage is gorgeous! The garden is fabulous with its views across the neighbouring fields and the icing on the cake is the hot tub! The master bedroom is amazing and there was a couple of days where we could have spent an entire day just in there! The beds are also incredibly comfortable too! We were met with a lovely welcome gift on arrivals of cakes and Prosecco and a big jar of dog treats! All in all, fabulous holiday cottage which we are already looking at booking for again later in the year!
