The property

A delightful end-terrace cottage which is located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Staveley and also situated next to the River Gowan.

Tucked away in one of Staveley's charming back streets, this beautifully furnished three storey cottage is perfect for a family getaway into one of the most picturesque parts of the country.

An ideal family retreat offering comfortable and cosy accommodation, there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst downstairs there is a wonderful sitting room.

The light and bright kitchen and separate dining area, makes a lovely space to enjoy delicious meals after a busy day exploring Staveley.

On warm sunny days, there is an outside patio area at the back of the cottage enclosed by a stone wall, perfect to sit out with a glass of something cold.

Just a short walk takes you into the centre of Staveley, which has the UK's largest cycle shop, together mixing with other interesting outlets such as the Mill Yard, including the Beer Hall, where you can sample ales from the Hawkshead Brewery.

The River Kent tumbles its way through the village from the Kentmere Valley, leading walkers to Mardale which is also popular with cyclists.

This cottage is a great base to enjoy a holiday in the stunning Lake District at whatever time of year.

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.
