“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had an amazing stay at Stable Cottage. Surrounded by beutiful countryside, this quaint and gorgeous cottage had everthing we needed and more. The owners Steve and Elaine were brilliant hosts, and made us feel very welcome. We were thrilled with our welcome surprise of some homemade scones, bread, marmalade, some local cheese and a chilled bottle of white in the fridge. The cottage is in a small hamlet, which provided us with idyllic peace and quiet, but we were only a short drive away from the amazing beach at Allonby, and also only a drive away from the lakes. A hidden treasure in a gorgeous part of the country. We only wish we had stayed longer, and will definitely be back in the near future.

“wonderful!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a two night stay in Stable cottage. It was wonderful!.From booking, to our stay, it was great. Steve and Elaine we're really helpful wether it was E-mails about places to visit, eating out or directions. The cottage is lovely. Very well looked after, very clean, has everything you would need, and extremely comfortable and cosy. We were thrilled to find a welcome pack full of goodies too! Wine, fresh bread, milk, butter, cheese, scones and marmalade.... home made! We enjoyed them Iin front of the t.v on the Friday night. Lovely! There was a box full of leaflets and brochures of things to do and see in the Lakes which was helpfull! Gillian, the caretaker was very welcoming and friendly! Thank you. We will be back again! Kerry and Nick. X

Thank you Kerry for your very kind review and so glad you had a wonderful time at Stable Cottage. Hope you enjoyed your wedding anniversary meal out. Only sorry that we were on holiday ourselves and did not get to meet you in person. Hopefully we can put that right if you come to Stable Cottage again as we very much hope you will.

“Magnificent stay in a quite country cottage”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stable Cottage. We were greeted by our gracious host who made us feel right at home. with a welcoming fresh loaf of home-made bread and scones and in the frig a generous sampling of local cheese and a chilled bottle of wine. We explored Cumbria, the Lake District and Scotland from our base camp at the cottage. And each evening we returned exhausted but happy, sitting in the front garden, enjoying the sunset over the Solway Firth and the hills of Scotland.
