A comfortable, spacious lounge with an open log fire, plenty of seating and a TV leads out to a pretty patio area (charcoal barbecue provided) with steps down to a large landscaped garden complete with fish pond. From the lounge and the patio there are far reaching views across fields and valleys where you can watch the sheep and spot walkers along the Dales Way. The modern fitted kitchen has granite worktops, an induction hob, a microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, seating for 2 and a small wall mounted TV. As you enter the cottage there is a separate dining room that seats 6/8 and 3 bedrooms upstairs with stunning views across farmland to the Kentmere Valley.

Ashes Cottage is located 1 mile outside the pretty village of Staveley with numerous eateries, pubs, the Hawkshead Brewery, a playground, the Wheelbase Bike Store and riverside walks.

About Liz Windsor

We are a family of 4 living in Dubai. We love holidaying at Ashes Cottage when we can and exploring the Lake District and hope you will too.

Liz Windsor purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Liz Windsor chose Staveley

We have been visiting Staveley for over 20 years and are delighted to own a beautiful property here. Ashes Cottage is a real haven away from the daily grind. As soon as you step out of the car you will notice the cool, fresh mountain air and tranquility shattered only by the neighbouring sheep. The cottage itself is spacious and comfortable for a family or group to spread out and relax in, whether out on the patio or curled up in front of a log fire. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to cater for yourselves or you can enjoy some time off by sampling the local pubs and restaurants in Staveley village, from local ales and pub grub to artisan bread and cakes, there is a great selection only a mile away.

What makes this cottage unique

Ashes Cottage has to be unrivalled for the stunning views from every window.

Outstanding cottage, lovely quiet location.

Everything you could think of was provided at Ashes Cottage.

Friendly owner who e-mailed to check all well during stay and left me a birthday card (we were there for my 40th birthday)

Would wholeheartedly recommend to other families!!

Perfect Lake District Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Ashes Cottage couldn’t have been better. Our two kids (6 and 3 years old) not only loved the Lake District (in particular, of course, Peter Rabbit & friends), but were also really excited about the house, especially the cozy living room with the fire place and lots of room to play. Although for March the weather was great, it unfortunately was still too cold to enjoy the sun on the beautiful terrace. We would love to come back in Spring or Summer and then sit outside in the garden and enjoy the terrific views. Thank you so much, Liz, for letting us stay in your beautiful house.

Fabulous Lakes Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous cottage, very comfortable (beds and sitting areas), with an open fire, beautiful new bathroom and well stocked with all the kitchen equipment you would need. It was one of the best cottages we have stayed in, and I would definitely recommend. The views from all aspects are amazing! Staveley which is the nearest place can easily be walked to across the fields, having a great play area for the kids, and also a lovely bakery called More. Craggy Wood is worth a walk which is out the other side of Staveley itself. It is a great location for exploring Windermere, Ambleside and around.

Car: recommended

Ashes Cottage is 1 mile outside the pretty village of Staveley with numerous eateries, pubs, a playground, The Wheelbase Bike Store and riverside walks. We recommend "More" artisan bakery for delicious pies, cakes and bread, The Eagle and Child Inn for great pub grub and The Hawkshead Brewery for local ales and beer tapas. Pick up the Dales Way footpath minutes from your door and return to a cosy log fire in the evening. Why not drive to Fellfoot Park for lakeside picnics and row boat hire or Grizedale Forest for walks along a sculpture trail or adventures in the trees with "Go Ape"! Visit Beatrix Potter's Farmhouse at Hawkshead or the medieval Sizergh Castle just 10 minutes drive away. There really is something for everyone here.
