About Mrs C Peplow

Reston Mill Cottage has been the family holiday home for more than 25 years. I took over running the cottage from my parents in October 2014. Since then the cottage has had several updates & improvements. My husband Phil & I make many visits to Reston both to do regular maintenance and to enjoy the area on bikes & on foot.

Our principal interest is road cycling and enjoy riding the quiet lanes in the beautiful area south of Staveley and the challenge of climbing all the high passes.

We live in Staffordshire and run an internet based bespoke curtain & blind making business - we hope that you like our handiwork!

Why Mrs C Peplow chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

This is our 2nd home and we like to make it as homely and welcoming as possible. We provide almost everything that you would have in your own home, All of the furniture has recently been replaced & is of excellent quality & very comfortable. The central heating is powerful & warm and heats the cottage very quickly, even in the depths of winter. In addition to the central heating, there is an open fire with a plentiful supply of hardwood logs.

Very clean. Great detailed guidance.

  • 5 of 5

We are sold on Staveley and the place was wonderful. So clean and comfortable. Extremely polite correspondence. Neighbors were very friendly and helpful. Lots of materials that capture local activities, walking trails, food options, etc. Felt completely at home. One thought: we are now in another Home Away. The owner met us at the door and showed us around. Logistics may preclude every owner from greeting guests but it is nice to "know a local." Thanks Cathy....didn't meet you but you presented a tremendous product.

A Lovely Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time seeing the lakes the weather was nice, and the bungalow was in a very convenient location. It had everything we needed for our stay, very comfy and cosy, loved the open fire, and Freddy our dog loved sitting in the conservatory watching the world go by. Would definately book again, thank you for letting us enjoy your lovely bungalow.

Comfortable and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, comfortable house in perfectly situated Staveley. Just at the start of the Lake District but still excellent walking nearby. don't miss the Hawkeshead brewery for delicious food and the best beer in the lakes ( all 10 mins walk from the cottage ). Thank you Cathy

Cosy, quiet, lovely

  • 5 of 5

Well located for a quiet village experience. Lots of nice walks nearby. Great facilities in the cottage, owner has really gone above & beyond. The garden is huge!! BBQ was an added bonus. Spacious & Well decorated home with a real cottage vibe. Conservatory great for extra space. Games, blankets, towels, bedding, wood for the fire, every kitchen utensil imaginable - all included.

Would recommend highly for a quiet mini break. Local shops & activities are great. Windermere for example is a 10 minute drive. Our dog Mollie also loved her stay - especially the naps by the fire.

Thankyou.
