  • "Loved our break in Jessie's cottage, excellent location, sympathetically renovated, lovely decor and just big enough for the three of us (3 adults)."

    Loved the little touches, the welcome bottle of wine and milk, and the drinks bottles and Tupperware (the things I always forget!) We'd never been to Staveley before but will return, great walks from the doorstep, Wilfs cafe, the chippy, the Bakery, gelato shop, loved the brewery and had an excellent meal in the Eagle and Child. Only negative is the parking, we parked to unload outside but can only stay an hour there, for the rest of the weekend we parked on the Mill, we used the app and only moved the car once and it cost £30 for the weekend, we probably could have found a spot on the edge of the village if we had tried. Feels like we have found an hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns in the Lakes!
