• About Holy Waters

    Unique church conversion set beside the River Gowan in Staveley, one of Lakeland’s quieter villages just 4 miles from Windermere and Bowness.

    Ground Floor:
    Entrance into....
    Kitchen: With electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer and microwave.
    Bathroom: With shower over bath, and toilet.
    Dining area: With garden out look.
    Lounge: With flat screen Freeview TV and DVD.

    First Floor:
    Bedroom 1: With twin beds and en suite with wash basin and WC.
    Bedroom 2: With double bed and architectural window.

    Gas central heating,gas, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Travel cot and highchair available.

    Enclosed garden with furniture provided.

    One of four properties imaginatively created in this former place of worship, Holy Waters has been cleverly designed to make best use of the architectural details of the church. The setting of the house is delightful, the garden running alongside the River Gowan, the presence and sound of flowing water always a welcome backdrop for a relaxing holiday. In the centre of Staveley, Holy Waters has all the great amenities of this flourishing village within a few steps and being at the foot of the Kentmere Valley, synonymous with great walking and cycling, this hidden gem of Lakeland is simply the ideal choice for a self catering break.
    A lengthy refurbishment of the property has resulted in first class accommodation, rather quirky in design with exposed walls and beams contrasting yet complimenting the original church features, the arched windows particularly attractive. The open plan living area creates a very social, comfortable feel on the ground floor, the dining table perfectly placed for enjoying the garden and river aspect. All your self catering needs are taken care of here at Holy Waters and for those with young ones, a collection of toys and DVDs has been thoughtfully provided to get your holiday off to the very best of relaxing starts

    A very last minute booking. Booked on the morning of arrival and was very pleasantly surprised at how good the accommodation is. Almost Everything you need but the WiFi was not working for the full four nights which was a bit of an issue as my daughter needed it to enrol for university on the 2nd day. Location was excellent with a train station a short walk away meant we could avoid using the car for majority of our stay. The double bed was very comfortable but the single could have been better. Otherwise everything was great. There was cleaning products available, bed linen and towels provided. Off road Parking good and good local pub 100 yards away, worth a visit.

    Ideal location for visiting the Lake District, in the really pretty village of Staveley. The cottage is in a fantastic position right next to the river, and has everything you need. There were no photos of the kitchen on the website when we booked, so Cumbrian Cottages might wish to add a photo. The kitchen has everything you need and is part of the open plan living and dining area. The only small issue we had was with the Wifi, which kept going on and off for the last couple of days of our holiday. Not sure if this was the router or a problem at the exchange. I would recommend this cottage and would love to return. The Lake District is absolutely beautiful!

    A well equipped and well situated cottage in my favourite Lake District village. However I do resent not having towels provided, and I wish there was a more digestible introduction to the various devices - that black folder was rather hard to digest!

    It’s a shame the carpets were so dirty. Plus the place was in need of painting as the cottage was a bit tired and the bedside lights weee in poor condition otherwise a nice stay.
