Lovely cottage with stunning views and great walks. Cottage is fitted with an aga which is fun to cook with and always offer you a warm space in the house. Lovely garden (enclosed for the dog) to enjoy with seating looking over the valley with peaks either side offers a great place to unwind and enjoy nature.

This is a beautiful place to stay. The view from the garden takes your breath away. The cottage has a beautiful feel, so comfortable and cosy. Many lovely features like the AGA cooker, but do read up on its use before going. The road from Staveley to the Cottage is a four mile narrow road with passing places but as there arent many properties meetiRead moreng traffic was occasional. The benefit of this is the silence and peace this affords and the most beautiful walks from the door. Hide
