  • “Ghyll Bank Byre is one of 5 holiday lets on the site, 3 of which are part of an old barn.”

    Ghyll Bank Byre is the largest of the 3, having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The property is accessed via an uphill single track road with passing places and has a very sharp hairpin bend, so not suitable for very large vehicles like motor homes. The view from the property is brilliant in every direction and cannot be faulted. We were very lucky with the weather in September. ...

    Ghyll Bank Byre is the largest of the 3, having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The property is accessed via an uphill single track road with passing places and has a very sharp hairpin bend, so not suitable for very large vehicles like motor homes. The view from the property is brilliant in every direction and cannot be faulted. We were very lucky with the weather in September. The property itself is very good but let down by a few things which is a pity, but in my view if these things were rectified it would be superb. The main issue is that it needs a deep clean and re-painting in places, which is surprising given that it would not have been used for most of this season due to Covid-19. Things like the table mats, plates and cushions need replacing as they look like they are cast offs from several years ago. The outside furniture is good and the quality of the furniture inside is good. In spite of our grumbles above we had a lovely holiday. There are lots of walks from the property and a great bakery and cafe on a small business park in Staveley. Booths supermarket is very good and easy to get to in Windermere with free parking for 2 hours. One other thing to bear in mind is that the WiFi was very patchy.

About the location

STAVELEY

Windermere 5 miles; Kendal 5 miles.

The thriving Lakeland village of Staveley is situated on the eastern fringes of the Lake District National Park and offers superb access to the whole region. The beautiful Kentmere Valley is just a short walk away and with the River Kent tumbling its way through the valley to Staveley, it is very popular with mountain bikers and walkers alike. Staveley Mill Yard is a former wood turning mill at the heart of the village, which is now a thriving tourist attraction with cycle hire and outdoor shops, artisan bakery, brewery and the renowned Wilf's Cafe. This complements the excellent range of amenities in the village, which include a variety of shops, two village pubs, craft shops, a children's playground, a regular bus service and a railway station. Close by, the bustling towns of Kendal, Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including a ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The 'Windermere Steamboat Museum' displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the 'World of Beatrix Potter' in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Staveley is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
