  • "A lovely cottage in a good location."

    We used the twin beds but were worried as the slats fell through, very flimsy.

  • "Loved this property it had everything we needed for a weeks stay."

    The beds were very comfy and the kitchen was equipped to a good standard. Staveley itself was a dream right on a bus route to every main town you need. At great hours and only £2 a journey or you can use oap bus pass. The village had a fab brewery with tap room, three coffee shops, a butchers, a chip shop and a Spar. We also walked up to the pub at Ings. From the bus we visited Kendal, Ambleside, Windermere and Keswick, from these places we were easily able to access the walking routes we wanted. We drove to Aira Force Falls for an amazing hike up the side of the waterfalls. We would definitely like to visit again.

  • "We loved our stay - the kitchen was well equipped, living room cozy and the beds very comfortable."

    The bathroom wasn't quite the same standard as the rest of the property but it was perfectly functional, and the shower was nice and warm. The utility area just inside the door was well thought out - and kept muddy boots out of the living area. Great jumping off point for the Lake District and the facilities in the village, including pub, brewery and ice-cream shop were fab.

  • "Very well-equipped, spacious and comfortable."

    Property was very clean and everything as described. The internet connection is a bit patchy but otherwise we couldn't fault the property in any way. (noisy jackdaws in trees but we didn't mind!)

    Perfect location for south west Lakes - close to Windermere, also with an artisan bakery / cafe close by and a pub within strolling distance.

    The location is excellent, avoiding the worst of the crowds but still being very much part of The Lake District. Highly recommended

    Gorgeous walks on the doorstep, and cracking local amenities with a fab brewery, bakery, handmade chocolate shop, coffee shop, pub and chippy just a few minutes walk away. The cottage itself has everything you need, and feels cosy and like a real home away from home. They even have a stash of puzzles and board games. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

  • "PROS: Perfect location Lovely outlook from main bedroom Easy to control heating when and if needed Comfy bed and pillows CONS: Sofa and chairs very uncomfortable."

    After a day on the fells you need a comfortable sofa/chair to relax in.

    We are sorry to hear that you found the sofa and chairs uncomfortable but also very surprised as the sofa has only recently been purchased and the foam has been replaced in both chairs. Property Owner

  • "We (a couple)had a lovely week at 2 The Chapel."

    The house was perfecrt for our needs and well equipped.The garden and river made it a bit of an oasis. It had everything we needed and Staveley was a lively village with a pub/ brewery/bakery/cafe and gelato shop all on the doorstep. For families there was a lovely play area in the village with large grassy area alongside the river. We walked from the Chapel and explored further afield on some days. We would return.

  • "Staveley good location for travelling out, much quieter than Windermere, Ambleside but that suited us as we wanted to be away from crowds."

    The local pub Eagle and Child is very close and serves good meals, local spar shop was good for basics but doesn't sell newspapers so had to go to the local BP garage about 5 mins in car. Cottage tidy and presentable, lovely riverside location with a small grassed area and raised area for sitting out. Parking is for one car, under an oak tree so you will have bird droppings on it after a week (but it's supposed to be lucky !). All in all a relaxing holiday, weather was kind to us.

  • "A really great place for a self catering holiday, the village has everything you need."

    . cafe, pubs, bakers and supermarket. Walks/ cycle from the doorstep. The old chapel has been sensitively renovated with original beams etc. The garden and river is v nice, though shared access makes it less suitable for young children. The kitchen was well equipped, with lots of useful extras. We had a great time.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Two The Chapel."

    The only thing that isn’t entirely clear from the property description is that there is a right of access through the rear garden of the property to the neighbouring property along the terrace. It didn’t bother us but might be more of an issue if you have children in tow. Also, the entrance through the back door and the kitchen could do with better lighting and the bathroom is rather tight for space. However, we loved the location by the river and overall had a comfortable stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. In terms of the shared access to the property we have reviewed the website and asked that Lakelovers amend to ensure clarity. Previous marketing information had this detailed but has been lost in the move to Lakelovers. We have investigated the lighting in the kitchen/back door area and found that the 3 fluorescent strip lights under the kitchen wall units had been individually switched of rendering the main switch useless, not sure why this has happened but now rectified. In terms of the bathroom size there is nothing we can do to change this, it is fully function with toilet, over bath shower and sink. We hope we can welcome you back again in the future too!

The property

Two The Chapel is one of four cottages created from the former Methodist Chapel, originally built in 1866, in the village of Staveley that sits on the edge of the Lake District National Park and is a popular base for those wanting to explore the area on foot, by bike or in the car.

In addition to the local pubs and village shop the village is also home to an excellent artisan bakery, an award-winning brewery and the UK’s largest cycle store.

The neighboring Kentmere Valley offers fantastic opportunities for all of all grades from gentle rambles to strenuous fell top hikes. Guests arrive at the cottage through the shared access path in the garden and steps lead to the decked patio and the glazed arched door.

Stepping inside this quirky cottage there is a bright and airy open plan sitting area, dining area and kitchen.

A large sofa and armchair are arranged around the log burning stove where guests can relax and enjoy the views to the patio and the garden.

In the dining area is a glass topped circular dining table and to the side there is a well-appointed kitchen area.

The cottage offers a choice of two bedrooms and there are complemented by a family bathroom. To the rear of the cottage there is a small lawned garden that over looks the rivers and an elevated decked patio with bistro garden furniture is a lovely spot to sit and relax. The property has been furnished with quality vintage and upcycled furniture from a sustainable and design aesthetic perspective
