Description from owner
A romantic cottage for 2 people, in beautiful countryside with lovely views across the Solway Firth to Scotland. Great walking and cycling country and close to stunning beaches. Character cottage newly renovated in 2016 with private garden. A welcome pack of home made and local produce is included. Well behaved dogs welcome! Close to village pubs (approx 1 mile away) . Fishing nearby and Arkleby leisure pool with sauna and hot tub 1 minute away. Approx 6 miles from Cockermouth. Home deliveries are possible from the Sainsburys in Cockermouth or Iceland, Asda or Tesco branches in Workington. This cottage will appeal to those wanting a peaceful holiday in the country. This is an area which is relatively undiscovered so you will not encounter the high numbers of tourists found in some of the Lake District hotspots. A car is essential, but within easy driving distance, is the wonderful scenery of the north lakes (our nearest lake is Bassenthwaite) and within approx 20 minutes drive you have Ullswater, Crummock Water and Buttermere. The towns of Cockermouth and Keswick and the City of Carlisle are all within easy driving distance. We are about 10 minutes drive to the beautiful but deserted Solway coast.The cottage has a lounge/diner (15'6" X 11'6") ,with Log Burner and the addition of a "Smart" LG TV,for Netflix and the like, Free Wifi is available. A well equipped kitchen (7'6" X 8' ) and fully tiled shower room with enclosed newly fitted double shower, WC and hand basin (9' X 3'9") all on the ground floor. A generous sized bedroom (15'6" X 12'6") with beamed ceiling and exposed stone wall upstairs. As this is a traditional rural cottage we have furnished it in a traditional way. The stairs are VERY steep, as space is limited in this 1748 built cottage, so is NOT suitable for people with mobility difficulties . There is a lawned private garden to the front with lovely views and a secluded dog proof rear area, also with good views!
We are happy to consider breaks from 2 nights upwards and are very flexible regarding changeover days. The cottage adjoins our house and you can be assured of a warm welcome on arrival and total privacy and seclusion during your stay.

Owner's reply: Thanks Vee for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay in Stable Cottage and were so pleased you feel refreshed. Hope to see you again soon ......the kitchen now has a spaghetti spoon too.....! Best wishes, Chrissy and Chris.
I booked this cottage for my mum and dad. They had a lovely stay. They said it had everything you needed and they will definitely return in the future. Really good value for money too.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review Kirsty. So glad your mum and dad enjoyed their stay. They left the cottage very neat and tidy on their departure and are more than welcome to return anytime. Christine
Wonderful stay at a wonderful cottage. Welcomed by Chris who is knowledgeable about the local area and welcoming. Lovely clean, cozy cottage with a great welcome package. Lovely outside area front and back, enclosed at the back which suited our dogs (very dog friendly) and us on those sunny days, breakfast outside was fabulous. Great beach and surrounding walks. Will return for another stay.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words Debra. It was our pleasure to have you stay at Stable Cottage recently. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for leaving the cottage neat and tidy on leaving, always very helpful. Hope to see you again. Christine.
“Cosy peaceful cottage”
Stayed for 2 nights for a romantic break for our anniversary. The hosts were very friendly and provided us with a lovely welcome pack of homemade goodies plus an anniversary gift, nothing was too much trouble for them. I would have given it 5 stars but as they state in their information the bedroom stairs would be difficult for a lot if people, however we would love to stay again.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind review. It was our pleasure to have you stay at Stable Cottage for your ‘special’ day. I hear what you say about the stairs and we have looked at ways of altering the layout, but unfortunately, we would lose too much space, so that is why we point out the staircase in our description. Hope to see you again. Christine
