Speech marksSpent two lovely weeks at Stableman`s Cottage. The weather was superb which meant we had breakfast outside everyday looking at the spectacular fells. An easy walk into Ambleside meant we could leave the car for both day walks and also evening meals. Rydal Lake and Mount are very close by and we even walked back from Grasmere one evening by the lakes. A fantastic holiday and three lovely hosts - Holly included!Speech marks

Speech marksThis is a beautiful, peaceful, quaint cottage in the perfect location to explore the Lake district. It is adequately equipped for two people and very comfortable with superb views across the fields and the river. THere is a good pub in the village of Rydal which serves good homely pub food. (it is advisable to book). The owner was very helpful and made us feel comfortable on arrival. We would certainly return to Garden Cottage.Speech marks

Speech marksStayed May 5th for seven nights in Riverbank Cottage. Firstly the kitchen, excellant, well equipped and a very nice size. Snug living room and took advantage of the logs fire. The bed was perhaps the most comfy ever and nice to have a selection of pillows. I was lucky with the weather, always a gamble but the location is spot on for walks straight from the door.Speech marks

Speech marksThe perfect location for walks from the door or into Ambleside or Grasmere. Riverside is very quiet, comfortable and well equipped accommodation making this a very enjoyable and relaxed week.Speech marks

TESTIMONIALS

Open quote WOW this place is breath-taking the views, the accommodation and the hospitality more than lived up to our expectations. Margaret and Kevin were really welcoming, we arrived on the 4th along with the snow, Kevin very kindly set up the coal fire and ensured we had plenty of fuel to see us through (our Pugs never moved from the front of that fire they loved it !!!!) The cottage was spotless and the bedding was crisps and fresh. We loved it so much we booked our return trip whilst we were still there as the availability was getting snapped up. If you dream of waking up to magnificent views, great walks form your door and outstanding accommodation then this is the place for you. Close quote
