  • "We had a lovely holiday in Stone Cottage, Staveley."

    Perfect for a couple and a dog. Enclosed back garden but our skinny cockapoo squeezed through the bars in the gate and visited next door. Fortunately they saw the funny side and we used the bins to make it safe. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and well placed for the village amenities, brewery, pub and cafes. Lovely walks locally and easy access to the main road to Windermere. Would definitely visit again.

  • "Not as clean as when we stayed last year."

    Crumbs left on worktops, dusty bedroom floor, dirty inside kitchen cupboards. Dog poo left on grass from previous guests. Pillow protectors needed as pillows are stained.

    Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay. We apologise that the cleaning standard wasn't up to it's usual high standard. The property always grades very high on it's cleaning so we will ensure to look into this with the current cleaner. Unfortunately guests don't always pick up after their pets which we do insist on and it seems perhaps previous guests have not done this, sorry that you had to find this. We hope you otherwise had a lovely stay and we can welcome you back again. Property Owner

    The village is great it has more than you would expect in the way of shops and the people are very friendly and welcoming. There are loads of places to visit within easy reach by car but there are also lots of walks. The garden is dog friendly and secure will be back for another visit soon.

  • "We were really impressed with the cottage and would be quite happy to stay there again."

    The accommodation and furnishings were very comfortable and the equipment making it a home from home - though a wok or deeper frying pan would be useful. Thank you.

  • "Listed facilities included WiFi, iPod docking Station and Smart TV."

    We had no WiFi all week so no Smart TV. I emailed you about it on the Thursday but didn't receive a response. There was no iPod docking station. The heating system didn't work properly because of the lack of WiFi. It came on at 3am in the morning on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings and I couldn't override the system. Even though there was a little postcard on the table saying please enjoy these gifts, there were none there. From the visitor book it seems like they were bottled beers and a jar of jam - so maybe whoever cleans the property decided to help themselves.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide further feedback following your stay at Stone Cottage. We would like to apologise that the plug for the Wi-Fi Router had been inadvertently switched/knocked off prior to your arrival and was easily rectified. We appreciate this will have had an adverse effect on the Smart TV and Hive Heating system, however had you contacted ourselves earlier in the week, we would of course attended to this sooner. We would like to apologise for the confusion surrounding the welcome gifts. Stone Cottage had a stand in cleaner the day of your arrival who was unaware of these items, and we apologise for the oversight on this occasion. We do hope that despite these shortfalls you had an enjoyable time in the Lakes as we hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage."

    Arrived just after Storm Arwen to a Village power cut so the toasty wood burner was a godsend! Really well equipped, great modern kitchen - the oven is a fancy Neff one with a retractable door - and great shower. Lovely long garden which is secure for dogs and so nice to have the bright and light conservatory as an extra space too. Staveley is a fantastic base - great for walks, has super local shops (Kimi’s Gelato, Hawkshead Brewery, More Artisan Bakery and Cafe, Mr Duffins roasting their own coffee, proper butchers, Eagle and Child pub with roaring open fire). Really lovely owners too - we were very impressed when they got in touch directly to check we were okay as the power cut was for three days. They were very helpful as were the shops in the Village - we were offered hot water at Kimi’s, the pubs let us charge phones -really friendly place.
