Ghyll Bank Byre Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Ghyll Bank Byre is a quality pet-friendly barn conversion with wonderful views, less than two miles from Staveley.

There is a kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with doors to the front terrace. There is also ample off road parking. Ghyll Bank Byre makes a wonderful family base for enjoying this beautiful part of the Lakes.

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.

The barn and its location is truly exceptional with panoramic views and walks all around. It was a most comfortable place to spend a weeks holiday with a good village pub serving the most excellent food and a village brewery and bakery. The location of the barn is within easy reach of Windermere, Ambleside and Grassmere so there is everything for sightseeing and walkers alike.

The barn was beautiful, cosy and warm. We loved it and wished it was our own house. Staveley was small and had everything you needed, including a good butchers with very friendly staff. The holiday was brilliant, would definitely go again.

Our Christmas break at Ghyll Bank Byre was amazing with its breathtaking views. An ideal spot for exploring. 100% perfect what more could you ask for!

June 2016
This was a last minute change of venue due to problems with our initial choice of accomodation.The wintery weather actually enhanced our visit with views of snow capped peaks in the distance.The underfloor heating creates a pleasantly snug ambience and the overall finish of the interior is outstanding and extremely well finished. I am already contemplating visiting again next year.

What an amazing cottage to stay at in the heart of the lakes. The place was perfect, we couldn't have been happier with it. Highly recommended.

We were absolutely stunned by the beautiful holiday cottage. The bedrooms were incredibly spacious and stylish with ensuite bathrooms to boot. The cottage was ideally situated with panaramic views of the hills. The big family kitchen was a delight to cook in, and the facilities all round were faultless. The cottage was beautifully clean and very high spec. Lovely, friendly owners. Can't wait to book again!
