The Stables (Dean)
The Stables is a delightful 18th century Grade II Listed cottage located in the quiet village of Dean. This unspoilt corner of the northern Lake District enjoys beautiful sunsets, peaceful valleys and beautiful landscapes. The 'secret' garden at The Stables is a lovely secluded spot to relax and enjoy a morning coffee or perhaps an evening meal whilst enjoying the abundant wildlife. The cottage has been sympathetically refurbished in a characterful farmhouse style with exposed beams and stonework. The sitting room is set around a feature cast iron fireplace and the log burner, and the musically inclined can enjoy some music on the piano in the music room. The Royal Yew, a dog friendly pub just a few minutes down the road, serves delicious country pub fayre prepared by their creative chefs.
The pleasant market town of Cockermouth is five miles away and offers many independent, shops antique shops, and plenty to see. Why not visit the old-fashioned ironmongers, 'J.B. Banks and Son', which houses a small museum? There is also an abundance of restaurants, pubs and cafes. Keswick is also nearby and is known as 'The Outdoor capital of the Lake District'. However, it has even more to offer with shops catering for everyon, several bespoke jewellers, art galleries, contemporary gift shops, and interesting museums.
Visit Britain has given The Stables a 4 Star Gold Award, in addition to a Welcome Pet Friendly award.
