Please note There is an unfenced 5ft drop from the terrace to the river below. \n\n This bright and spacious terraced property is located right in the heart of the village of Staveley a perfect gateway to explore the Lake District nearby Howgill Fells and the Yorkshire Dales. The airy livingdining room offers plenty of comfort for all with large patio doors opening onto the rear riverside terrace which overlooks the River Gowan flowing past directly under the terrace. Three very comfortable bedrooms offer views of the surrounding countryside and there is a family bathroom along with the additional benefit of a downstairs toilet. Outside a further enclosed garden to the front can be found along with a parking space and a garage for storing your bikes during your stay.\nHawkshead Brewery is just a short stroll away so take advantage of being able to taste their beers and leave the car at home. You can enjoy breakfast at one of the village’s cafés again within easy walking distance and a great way to start off the day. The bustling town centre of Kendal is just 10 minutes’ drive and a little further you are in the beautiful central Lake District where you can taste Grasmere gingerbread take a cruise on Lake Windermere or simply get out and walk some of Lakeland’s finest fells.

    Great for a short break. Staveley has good eateries and a pub. Shower could be better.

    We came to Cumbria for a funeral. Gowan was a delightful cottage to return to each day during what could have been a very stressful week. It was very well equipped and comfortable and easy to reach. The only thing we didn't particularly like were the steps down which were rather narrow, but I know you can't do anything about that. We particularly enjoyed seeing the river tumbling down the valley just outside our window. The peaceful atmosphere was just what was needed.

    We felt home as soon as we got inside the cottage. Everything is clean. All items you usually have at home are there including kitchen facilities, loads of cutleries, sofa, salt and sugar, dining table, chests and wardrobes. There are even DVD discs for you to watch if you like. Books and broad games are available as well. Having said that, you need to bring your own shower gel and shampoo. The cottage is just in front of a beautiful river. We went out to the back garden and took many beautiful pictures with the river and flowers as background. I also like the fact that the key is put in a locked box next to the front door. We simply collected the key any time we arrived without the need to contact and wait for anyone. Happy to visit again.

    We have stayed at a number of cottages in the UK and Europe but this is amongst the best. Really comfortable. The owners have invested in nice furniture, comfortable beds and fully equipped the cottage with everything you could want. Location is perfect for walking. Local pub serves great food. Bakery around the corner.



    out of 10

    The house was lovely, clean and well appointed with everything you would need. The only bad things were the beds which were not comfortable and could do with a replacing or at least mattress toppers.



    out of 10

    Lovely central place to stay. Pity about the neighbours and parking. Next door is digging up his garden and neighbour rude about parking, which is extremely tight. Shame otherwise would have been 10 for location.
