What makes a stay at Stone Cottage unique?

Painstakingly and respectfully refurbished, original features have been exposed and new additions thoughtfully chosen to create a truly beautiful cottage with a sense of history and a sense of place – and boy what a place!…there are few settings which capture the essence of Lakeland better than this. Inside the Farrow and Ball paints and designer fabrics complement the finest local materials and artist's works.

The house is private and peaceful yet has 21st century luxuries: good WiFi, Sky Q box and a superbly equipped kitchen. On arrival guests enjoy flowers, Prosecco, homemade cake and can order meals from the local farmshop.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Patterdale area?

Firstly, the cottage is nowhere near Penrith! It is set in the heart of the Lake District, 2 miles south of Patterdale at the head of the valley just before it climbs southwards to Windermere (11 miles) and Ambleside (8 miles). Both are great large villages for shopping with a good supermarket in Windermere. Ambleside has a super independent cinema with 5 screens and two vegetarian restaurants, plus boasts many other great places to eat and drink. Ullswater;often considered to be England's most beautiful lake, is just a 2 mile walk from the cottage. Take a tour of the lake on a "steamers" or use one of the many guides provided to venture into the mountains surrounding the cottage.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

There is milk, tea, fresh coffee, homemade cake and prosecco on arrival - plus useful bits and bobs like salt, pepper, cooking oil, sugar are provided. In advance a range of farmshop frozen meals can be ordered as well as milk, juice, eggs and even a local cheese hamper. Locally there are 3 pubs which serve simple pub grub plus a hotel on the lake which has a wider choice of options. The local shop in Patterdale is just a mile away and good for essentials with a mini-mart in Glenridding just 2 miles away which has a wide range of produce plus an excellent range of local beers.

Thank-you for sharing Stone Cottage with our family. You think of everything – and it is a joy to stay here. The cake and fizz were a wonderful welcome and delicious.
