“Brilliant Holiday”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2017

Fabulous cottage, great area, easy reach for great walks for the dogs, Christine is so friendly - felt I had met a kindred spirit! Real home from home - the welcome package of bread/butter/cheese, delicious cake and home made pickle wont last long! We ordered some groceries from Sainsbury's and it was a good decision: even if you eat out most of the week it's great to have breakfast and snacks available. Had no problem with drains at all - just adopted the same approach we do at home - only loo roll to be flushed away. Allonby beach was one of our favourites - can walk for miles and miles...definitely would go again.

Owner's reply: Thanks Jann and Rob for your kind words. It was our absolute pleasure to have you and the dogs stay at Stable Cottage recently. So glad you enjoyed your are most welcome to return any time, just let us know when to expect you! regards, Chrissy and Chris.

“Peaceful & Relaxing!”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2015

My wife and I arrived about 4.00pm, with little difficulty thsnks to Stephen's written dirrections. Far more helpful than my GPS system, which refused to recognize the Wardhall postcode. Stephen was away the day we arrived and, as arranged, Jillian from across the road met us and handed over the key. Upon entry, we found enough food to make a trip to the nearest supermarket unnecessary until the folloeing afternoon. Eggs, butter, marmalade and milk in the fridge, homemade bread, cake and scones, bottled water, teabags and coffee, and oh, a bottle of white wine, also in the fridge! Despite the average weather, the countyside scenery was beautiful. Took a Lake Windemere cruise but, due to the weather, found it somewhat underwhelming. A Sydney Harbour ferry ride in similar weather is far far superior. We are quick learners however, and with the continuation of inclement weather, we opted for undercover activities. A visit to The Devil's Porridge Museum at Eastrigg, just over the border in Scotland, scored 10/10 for us, as did The Cumberland Pencil Museum at Keswick. Both are quite extraordinary. We swere also fortunate enough to visit the once a year two day Kendal Wool Gathering - scored 8/10. All in all, a most enjoyable 5 days. Peaceful location a bit of the beaten track. Just take your time on narrow country roads. Wi-Fi a bit dodgy, but experiment and you will find good locations for connection in the cottage. Thanks Stephen & Elaine for the lovely accommodation, Peter & Helen Cotton

Owner's reply: Thanks Peter & Helen for such a comprehensive and complimentary review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your time here in Wardhall and the surrounding area. Sorry about the weather! Although we only met briefly it was a pleasure and we wish you well for the rest of your visit to the UK. Kindest Steve & Elaine.

“Wonderful stay!”

Really enjoyed our stay at the cottage! Beautiful scenic views all around, really cute get away, perfect break from the city. Loved the bread and the cakes really yummy! Would definately visit again, hopefully the weather won't be as chilly! Next time we would love to stay for a few more days to take it all in! Really recommend this cottage as it is a wonderful place to stay with warm welcoming owners!

Owner's reply: Hi Harry & Amy Thank you once again for booking Stable Cottage and for leaving such a great review. It was our pleasure to have you stay here in Wardhall and we are naturally pleased that you enjoyed your stay. You will always be most welcome here and we look forward to seeing you again some time in the future. Kindest Elaine & Steve

My boyfriend and I stayed in this lovely little cottage with our dog for his birthday weekend and couldn't have had a more wonderful time. When we arrived we were immediately greeted by the caretaker Gill (the owners were on holiday) who showed us into the cottage and advised that we could call upon her should we need anything. Despite being away, Stephen and Elaine had still left us the delicious welcome pack of homemade cakes, bread and biscuits as well as wine, milk, butter, tea coffee etc which were very very much appreciated! They really had thought of everything, right down to a picnic basket and blanket to a scrabble board game left in the cupboard. The bedroom was so cosy and the bed so comfy. I live in a city centre so had the best few nights sleep I've had in a very long time in there. Amazing! All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this cottage for a couples getaway! We explored the areas lakes, fells and beaches, all within an hours drive (beach only 10 min) yet we always looked forward to getting back and having a brew and snuggling up in the warmth on the sofa! Thank you Steve and Elaine! Ps we are so sorry, we discovered the maps to the beach in my car today that you had kindly drawn for your guests and we forgot to return. I do hope you have more copies!!

Owner's reply: Dear Lizzi & Alastair We very much appreciate the wonderful review you have posted in respect of your stay at Stable Cottage and are so glad that the cottage lived up to your expectations. We are only sorry that we did not get to meet you as we were away. You will be most welcome again any time here in Wardhall and hopefully if you come again we will get to meet you! Best wishes Elaine & Steve

“Perfect romantic escape”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2015

Looking for a hideout to get away from it all for a weekend we found Stable Cottage to be cosy and well equipped with everything and more. The location was secluded and peaceful but still within short driving distance to the paths, beach, Cockermouth and Keswick. Local scenery on route to Keswick is breathtaking and well worth another visit to investigate further. We would definitely come and stay again, most probably for longer next time. The home baked welcome treats and wine were a lovely surprise. Best carrot cake ever! Many thanks from Stuart and Jo.

Owner's reply: Dear Stuart & Jo Thank you so much for your very nice review and we are thrilled that Stable Cottage met your expectations. It was a pleasure to have you to stay in Wardhall and we are so glad that you had such a nice relaxing time. You will both be most welcome here again and we look forward to seeing you again some time in the future. Kindest Elaine & Steve

Lovely cottage with excellent facilities in great location. Owners Steve and Elaine couldn't be more welcoming, after a long journey arrived to a warm cosy cottage with a very thoughtful welcome pack of treats and essentials, a nice touch that you wouldn't get with many other places! Kitchen well equipped, big comfy bed, very clean inside and out.. Couldn't fault it! would highly recommend to all and hope to visit again :)

Owner's reply: Dear Chris & Sophie. Thank you for your very kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and certainly hope that we can have the pleasure of welcoming you again sometime. Great that your classic car was up to the highways and by ways (and sometimes very steep passes) of the Lake District and that you had a safe journey home to Peterborough. Best regards Elaine & Steve.

We enjoyed our short stay. It's a very quiet location (good for us city dwellers) with access to the sea and the Lakes. We ate in Cockermouth and at the Bar n Bistro, both good. The cottage was very well equipped and cosy, we appreciated the welcome items.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your favourable comments and glad that you enjoyed the peacefulness of Stable Cottage as an escape from the stresses of Manchester. Hope to see you both again sometime.

“Home Away from Home”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

We were greeted by Elaine and Steve on arrival to the Lake District, who opened the house and gave us a little tour of the beautiful cottage we had booked to stay in for a week in August. Being the first guests everything was absolutely sparkling new, but the traditional elements of a holiday cottage were still very much part of the ambience that has been created. Whilst this cottage is suitable for a couple, there is more than enough room and the layout is great. The living room has a two person sofa and chair, table with two chairs and a TV with freeview. The fire in the lviing room was also fabulous, and with the weather on a slight turn from the summer for two days we were glad to use this. We are keen cyclists and walkers and were out of the house every day, but stayed in every evening- this is testament to the cottage as there are many lovely pubs and a bistro in close distance. We were exhausted most evenings and made use of the garden and kitchen- there is also a great BBQ and coal is provided, which is a lovely touch. A large Sainsbury is in Cockermouth for any top ups, but there is also a Co-op in Aspatria 2 miles down the road if you run out of anything. There was a welcome hamper provided when we arrived which contained fresh bread, sonces, homemade marmalade, cheese, butter and even a bottle of wine- incredibly welcoming after a long jounrey and this really sets this lovely house apart from a hotel or B and B. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a totally relaxing and romantic break, it was everything we were looking for in a week away in the UK.

Owner's reply: Really pleased that you had such a good time.Thankyou for your kind comments and we hope to see you again sometime at Stable Cottage
