About the property

Cottage Nr. Caldbeck, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Ideal To Relax And Unwind in Peaceful Surroundings, Cozy Warm Cottage And Large Garden To Play in.

Stockwell Hall Cottage is a self catering holiday cottage located on the edge of the Caldbeck fells on the northern boundary of the Lake District, an ideal situation to suit many different types of break at any time of year, including winter break.

The cottage has been converted from an 18th century Grade II listed barn in a sympathetic way to combine its original character and charm with relaxing comfort. We have converted it to the highest standards with special care and attention to detail. It is spacious and well equipped with many of the furnishings from Laura Ashley.

Set in the pleasant surroundings of a smallholding you have the opportunity to see the animals and wildlife close up and gives you space to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.

The cottage has been awarded the highest rating of 5 star Gold Award by Visit Britain. There is a patio which over-looks a large lawned garden, ideal for watching the children enjoying fun and games in a safe environment or just put the hustle and bustle of a busy life behind you and take a few moments to appreciate the peace and tranquillity that nature has to offer.

The local pub is within easy walking distance, less than half a mile away for anyone who would like a meal washed down with a pint of ale in a country pub in the evening. We are on the edge of the Cumbrian Way and only a short drive from Northern Lake District. The Solway coast is not far away as is the border city of Carlisle and Hadrians wall. The Scottish border is only 35 minutes away where you will find Gretna Green and the world famous Old Blacksmiths Shop.

A warm welcome awaits you and enjoy our welcome pack after your journey in the lovely surroundings of Stockwell Hall Cottage.

The cottage sleeps six people plus a cot if required, there is an out-house where bikes can be securely stored. We have installed a biomass boiler which keeps the house warm all year round and also plenty of hot water. This has replaced our oil heating and uses renewable heat sources. We have also made a shed into a drying room which is ideal for drying coats, boots, etc. after a hard days walking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some of the many comments left by our guests.

A truly fandabidozy cottage run by an extremely smashing family! We could not fault anything, will be recommending to any friends and will be back for sure! Thank you.

Wish we could stay a few more days! we've had a really relaxing time. The barn is so comfortable, you have really gone the extra mile to think of all the little extra touches to make a special week. The cake was delicious and snowdrops a reminder spring is not far away. We are so pleased we found this lovely place and hope we can return again sometime. Thank you.

Our second visit to "Stockwell" and it was another lovely holiday! We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon.

I have stayed in many different holiday cottages & this one was by far and away the very best! Beautifully decorated with Laura Ashley furnishings, extremely well equipped & little extras provided such as homemade cake & wine! Fantastic surroundings where the children loved running around in the huge garden & seeing all the farm animals. We were made to feel extremely welcome as soon as we arrived. The best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in & will definitely be back!
