Ghyll Bank Bungalow Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This stone-built cottage offers privacy and seclusion for couples or small families looking to spend some time together. All the accommodation is laid out over a single storey and is arranged in an open plan style. The views of Morecambe Bay and the Kentmere Valley are truly remarkable and the patio gives visitors the opportunity to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining during the hazy summer evenings. In the colder months, the property is turned into a warm and cosy snug, being heated by storage radiators and an atmospheric woodburning stove.

Just five miles from the famous town of Windemere, Staveley is truly in the heart of the Lakelands. This charming village is just a stone's throw from the borders of the Lake District National Park and offers wonderful and scenic opportunities for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. The village itself is well-served by a number of shops, a trio of pubs and a railway station, offering relaxing rides through the surrounding countryside. Nearby attractions include the famous Lake Windemere, where you can soak up the spectacular panorama from a boat or take a ferry trip to the Lakeside Aquarium or the Grizedale Forest Park. Ambleside, the centre of English mountaineering, is also close by offering visitors the chance to go climbing.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Electric storage heaters and radiators with woodburner and electric fire in sitting area. Double electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV, DVD, WiFi. Electricity and fuel for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Cot and highchair on request. Ample off road parking. Patio with garden furniture and BBQ. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 1.5 miles. Note: No fireworks due to the proximity of animals. Note: WiFi may be limited due to rural location.

We had a wonderful stay and were very pleased with the Bungalow, in particular the instructions as it was a very dark night when we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised with not only the layout but the facilities within. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and added to the views it was spectacular. We'll be back!

The cottage is a lovely warm country style venue which is situated in a lovely location with outstanding views from the living room and dining area. It is tucked away from the everyday comings and goings of city life and gives you time to relax and enjoy the countryside. There are lots of hills and fields to wander on public foot paths...Outstanding!!!

Fantastic location and a beautiful bungalow in beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful and a short distance to local shops. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday location. I would highly recommend this as a fantastic place to stay. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The bungalow is ideal for a couple, very comfortable with a log burning fire set in a beautiful location. Everything you need is supplied there is even a log store outside the kitchen door. The bungalow is on the fells above Staveley is set in an ideal location for exploring the Lakes. We really enjoyed our Christmas break will definitely be returning for another stay.

A little gem of a cottage with stunning views. Just a wonderful, peaceful haven. Compact but very well-equipped, very spacious for a small cottage. Good standard, very clean.

The cottage was lovely and ideal for me my wife and 5 year old son, the views and surrounding area were beautiful.

The remote location of the cottage, but still within walking distance of Stavely. We had a snow fall on the Saturday with icy roads and drive all week. The owners arranged for the drive to be cleared. The local farmers were helpful. The walks were great in the snow. Highly recommended.

The location, whilst remote, was very beautiful and quiet. There was plenty of parking space and the area around the cottage was very clean, neat and tidy. The cottage itself was well maintained and quite cosy.
Mr Mrs Barber

The excellent weather helped us to have a very good holiday. We would book this property again. We met the owners who were very friendly. This was a very good base to visit the Eastern and Central Lakes. We used the dog-creche service of Dog Tales in Troutbeck to give ourselves a couple of dog-free days shopping with long pub lunches.

The views were very good, we had a great time! We would go back to Ghyll Bank Cottage again.

Friendly owners who came on our evening of arrival to check everything was OK. Nice location, away from it all but only a couple of miles from a village and main towns.

This is our second visit to this lovely little out of the way cottage. The views are just stunning. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Thorne

The view and situation was wonderful. We had 3 dogs, and it was an ideal venue for them plus a number of children. It is a lovely location and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make it comfortable.
Mrs Leach

It was so quiet, and the views were brilliant, so relaxing. We would love to come again.

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful cottage, we felt at home straight away. The surroundings and view were like a romantic painting, the hills and views were dreamscape-like and gorgeous. The cottage was impeccable and done in great taste, when one hit the pillow at night we slept wonderfully. to eat ones breakfast in the morning with a glorious view is all one could ask for. I and my friends will definitely book this cottage in the future because it had such an impact on all of us.

June 2016
The property information is very misleading. The setting is wonderful with fabulous views and access easy to great walks. Thankfully the weather was fantastic so we could be out all day until late evening because the cottage itself was a huge disappointment. Overlooked by two other large holiday lets at full capacity, with eleven cars at one count, all lovely people, but not at all what we had expected. The cottage was dusty, not clean and had an awful smell that we couldn't get rid of. The fixtures and fittings are way past sell by date. Can't understand how it has achieved its rating or pricing level. Awful.

Just spent Christmas at the bungalow, the views of the fells are fantastic. The bungalow is well fitted out with everything you need including a log store for the fire. the location is ideal for exploring the lakes, Windermere is about 5mls away. The owners called to see us on the first night just to make sure eveything was ok. We will definateley be returning, as the bungalow is located on the fells the walks & views are fantastic.

My partner and I have just come back after spending a long weekend in the bungalow at Ghyll Bank. The piece and quiet we found there was very welcome and inspires us to return for a longer stay in the very near future. We had our dog with us and I'm convinced he enjoyed it just as much as we did. The views of the fells are breathtaking and most memorable. The owners gave us clear and concise directions to the bungalow and made sure it was nice and warm for our arrival, they even tried to catch us twice to ensure we were ok but unfortunately on this occasion we didn't meet. Ample parking space, and fuel for the woodburner provided. Thank you Mr & Mrs B.

Ghyll Bank Bungalow was unsuitable for us because none of 3 mobile phones could get coverage and on our first night while lighting remained available, power ceased to work, so WiFi ceased too. That is not tenable for older people, even though we were and are in good health. The owner seemed more interested in rent than service, as towels were not provided, yet bed linen was and our phone discussion after driving in to Stavely felt dismissive. We bought towels in Kendall. We left next day and forewent any refund.
May 2014
Service from owners excellent; called round to see us, friendly, helpful and sorted out a Wifi issue. Bungalow well equipped and location superb. Near Staveley with local shops, brewery and 2 pubs. Large garden great for the dogs. Very quiet and peaceful. Liked least? Not a problem, but the lounge area was very small
August 2014
Delightful place. Narrow road up but beautiful views. Cosy peaceful country cottage. Would go again.
October 2011
A great little cottage set in beautiful countryside and away from the rush of modern life.If you love peace and traquility plus great walks then this is an ideal place. There is no negativety about the lake district to me it is heaven on earth
December 2011
Owner very helpful, cottage comfortable and clean, location well off the beaten track with stunning views and very peaceful - the stars at night are a brilliant display and our dog enjoyed his stay there as well!

Ghyll Bank Bungalow is in a beautiful location, with a beautiful view.
September 2011
The location is really beautiful and the cottage, though small, is very comfortable. A good place from which to explore the South East of the Lakes. We also had brilliant weather which helps. The only downside is the fact that this cottage is so near the much larger rental property next door. The people there for our week were fine, but we still felt "outnumbered" at times.

Gyll bank Cottage, is a lovely little place to stay for a Holiday,Everything was what you needed in it,and the views were great too. so lovely and quiet around, except the Magpie tapping on our Bedroom Window after no doubt a Morsel to find at 4am in morning, frightening myself and Hubby !!! All in all we will be going back in the Future maybe in the Summer time to get the chance to sit out on the Bench with a cuppa/ Wine in the Sun.
