Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Staveley

Stavely holiday cottages are ideally located for exploring the glorious countryside of south Lakeland. This delightful village lies on the banks of the River Kent, four miles north of Kendall. Overlooked by three hills, with a gentle stream winding through its centre, a more idyllic setting for self-catering holidays in the Lake District would be hard to find. As you explore this ancient cloth-producing community, you’ll notice a scattering of beautiful historical landmarks. Look out for Medieval St Margaret’s Tower and St James’ Church, known for its spectacular stained-glass windows. The village has remained largely untouched by tourism, making it the perfect choice if you want to experience life in a traditional Cumbrian village. The charming Main Street in Staveley is home to a traditional grocery, post office and butcher, allowing you to shop for fresh local produce to enjoy at your holiday cottage. Staveley Mill Yard is worth a look for its unique independent businesses, including Hawkshead Brewery, an ice-cream parlour and the popular walkers’ café, ‘Wilf’s’. There’s also a cosy pub, the Eagle and Child, where good food and ale can be enjoyed before a roaring fire.

Just outside the village, in a 13th-century watermill, you’ll find Kentmere Pottery, renowned for its handmade ceramics. With some of England’s most incredible scenery on its doorstep, Staveley is an excellent base from which to enjoy the great outdoors. A short distance from the village, the Kentmere Valley offers unrivalled hiking and mountain biking. The Kentmere Horseshoe is a particularly scenic walking route, with several challenging climbs and incredible views. Craggy Wood, Longsleddle Woods and Spring Hag are also nearby. Every two years, visitors flock to the village for Staveley Carnival, where entertainers and an array of weird and wonderful costumes transform the streets.
