Providing delightful single storey accommodation, Silver How is a wonderful retreat for up to 4 people to escape the stresses of everyday life. Set in the charming village of Staveley, you couldn't ask for a better location from which to explore this part of the South Lakes. Leave the car at the cottage and head to the famous Hawkshead Brewery and enjoy a relaxing drink in the popular beer hall. Fans of 2 wheels will love a trip to Wheelbase in the village; the UK's largest cycle store, this is sure to delight any bike lover. Staveley enjoys an enviable position at the mouth of the Kentmere Valley. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, there's plenty to explore - on foot or on 2 wheels!

Stavely can be found between the ever popular Windermere and the bustling South Lakes town of Kendal. For a day of culture, head into Kendal and visit the Brewery Arts Centre; take in a play or film, or partake in one of the many day courses offered here. A walk round the ruins of Kendal Castle is a must for anyone interested in local history or spend a fascinating afternoon at the Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry. A short drive in the other direction brings you to Windermere Village. With its great choice of bars, it's perfect for sampling a cocktail or two, or have a night off from cooking and treat yourself to a delicious meal at one of the town's pubs or restaurants. Venture onwards to Bowness and enjoy a spot of retail therapy followed by a cruise round Lake Windermere.

Fancy a day trip? Enjoy a scenic drive through The Lakes to Keswick, a bustling market town on the shores of Derwentwater. A steep walk out of the town is rewarded by the mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle - see if you can count the same number of stones twice! Why not enjoy coffee and a slice of homemade cake at one of the town's independent cafes? Or grab some fish and chips to enjoy by the lake before your journey back to Silver How, your home-from-home.
