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.

Clean, cozy and comfortable. Very well placed for south lakes

  • 4 of 5

A nice 2 bed comfortable property which for a family of 2 adults and a toddler met our needs. In easy reach of busier Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside it gave us all we needed.

Brilliant, comfortable stay in Staveley

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant and relaxing time in Cathy's cottage. She gave detailed instructions for arrival and how to use all of the appliances which was really helpful.

The cottage had all we needed including towels and bedding included. The log fire was lovely and the store very well stocked!

The location was great - only went into staveley briefly but not far at all to Windermere.

Overall good location, lovely comfortable and homely cottage where we felt very welcome - thanks Cathy!

The bungalow was clean and comfortable with an open fire and electric blankets on all the beds.

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was in a great location for walks in the Lakes and to get to the towns of Windermere, Ambleside and Kendal.

We had a very comfortable stay enjoyed by 2 adults, 2 teenage boys and the family dog.

We would definitely visit again.
