  • "We read the reviews but thought ‘It sounds amazing but probably won’t be quite as wonderful as that’."

    We were wrong. It was even better! EVERYTHING was as folk said - simply FAB-U-LOUS. Wonderfully furnished with such lovely comfy, sink into sofas and with equally comfortable, padded dining chairs you could sit on all morning. The beds, SO very comfortable and the whole house a perfect temperature with the ground source heating and with no nasty drafts. There was a beautiful vase of roses (real!) and a basket of goodies to greet us on arrival PLUS a bottle of bubbly in the fridge! Mark and Helen (the owners) are delightful and so helpful. The weather was not too good for our 3 night stay, having timed it perfectly to coincide with a deep depression, but we were very cosy and with games in the drawers and a large screen Smart TV (HDMI cable provided) plus TVs in every bedroom, all of which worked perfectly. We even tried the hot tub in the strong NW wind and it was bliss. Everything anyone needs to know is in the ‘How to’ folder which was on the table and we can thoroughly recommend the first pub we tried - the Farmers’ Arms - just 1.5 miles away which serves fantastic food at very reasonable prices. We weren’t there long enough to try any others. Last thing to say is don’t do what I did and hunt for a kettle. The kitchen has the very latest in hobs and modern appliances with a massive fridge PLUS the tap on the sink has an amazing device which dispenses boiling water, instantly! If you’ve never seen one, the instructions are in the folder on the table and, if I can do it, anyone can! We shall be back.

    Thank you for you great review. It was lovely having you and your friends to stay. I'll try to organise better weather next time you stay! Helen Property Owner

    The most amazing holiday home we have ever stayed in. The quality, finish and attention to detail by the owners is incredible and so much thought and attention to detail has gone into this property and it’s renovation. The bedrooms feel like luxury hotels, the furniture and furnishings are high quality and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. Underfloor heating leaves the property toasty at all times. A lovely welcome basket with treats, wine, fizz and fresh roses was a lovely touch. The outdoor space and hot tub is great with a safe enclosed area overlooking fields. A peaceful place but within easy reach of shops, pubs, the beach and beyond. We had an amazing week at The Old Stable, the owners were great and hope to come and stay again.

    Thank you very much for your lovely review, and are so pleased you had a great stay. We look forward to seeing you again. Helen Property Owner

    We had absolutely everything we needed for the stay and more. Little touches were considered, for example ice, straws, additional blankets and games. The private location was great and was only a 10-minute drive to local supermarkets. I stayed with a group of 8 to celebrate my 24th Birthday and it was perfect. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and I will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you for having us!

    We had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend with no stress and really appreciated the little touches such as the hamper. The property was spotless and had a very warm and cosy feel. Hot tub was great -just a note to bring extra towels for hot tub! Private area but was 10 mins away from supermarkets which was handy, 45 min to Windermere, We had a really great time staying here and would love to return at a later date

  • "What a fantastic property, we were blown away when we arrived."

    The property has been renovated to the highest specification, and is immaculate throughout. We had 4 adults and 2 children for our trip and there was plenty of space for all of us. There are 4 bedrooms, all en-suite, and all with TV's, which meant we could all go back to our rooms whenever we felt like it. The garden is secure, so we could let the kids play outside without worrying about them escaping, and it also backs onto a a farm field where we could see the sheep running around. The property is equipped with everything you could possibly need, and there are clear instructions on how to use everything. The owners, Helen and Mark were lovely too, and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. The location was perfect for us too, close to the zoo, the steam train, and not too far from Windemere. Plenty of shops nearby too. We hope to see you again soon Helen and Mark, we will definitely be staying again.

  • "We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Old Stable."

    We stayed Friday to Sunday with a group of girlies to celebrate a 50th birthday. We were contacted by Helen before arrival to ensure we had everything we needed and they also allowed us to check in earlier as the rental was ready, which was nice as we could set up some decorations. The rental was well equipped and one of the most equipped rentals I have stayed in. The Old Stable has been renovated to a high standard and excellent quality. Each room has its own bathroom and they have excellent finishes and have little toiletries (great quality products). There are USB ports by the sockets of beds, for charging mobiles, sound bar to play music, the hot tub was ready and great temp, the rental inside and out was immaculate. The kitchen had everything you needed including tea towels, foil, cling film, there wasn't anything we needed. Too much to mention. We also arrived to a Hamper of Wine, Fizz, nuts, biscuits and fugde and fresh roses in a vase. The Old Stable really felt homely and Helen and Mark (who live next door) where lovely and provided additional information about the nearby areas. Loved this place and we will be looking to book again as a family holiday early next year. We all had a fantastic time, even though the weather wasn't too great on the Saturday, it didn't impact or dampen our stay.

  • "WOW!!!"

    This is the best property we have ever stayed in. The facilties are 5 star, the beds were very comfortable. The owner has thought of your every need and nothing is too much trouble. Whilst it felt homely, the modern appliances were soooo much better than home, so to have this level of luxury meant it felt a special break. Stayed as two families and because of the en suites, always had our own space and evey bedroom felt like the master bedroom, although the master was stunning!!! It is on main road but due to the electric gates, the garden was completely enclosed ensuring the childrens safety at all times, allowing us to relax. There are two beach areas close by for access to Morecambe Bay. We always drove off as we had small children and walking along road didn't seem the best idea. We felt Barrow had more to offer than Ulverston for kids but also 30 mins from Lake Windermere for a boat trip, mooch around and an ice cream. We would highly recommend this property.
