Like all four of our holiday houses, Stables Cottage, which was formerly the stables for Clydesdale working horses, has a wealth of exposed beams and stonework. The oak linteled fireplace has a glass-fronted log burning stove as well as full gas central heating. The open plan lounge, farmhouse style kitchen and dining area open on to a south- facing patio and the gardens beyond. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, a twin bedded room and a bathroom with shower and bath.

There is a fly fishing lake which is well stocked with trout, three minutes' drive away at Blencarn. Sykes's fishing tackle shop in Penrith can arrange for day or week permits to fish many rivers and lakes in Cumbria and point you in the right direction to fish for salmon on the River Eden.

The large informal gardens and pastures surrounding our holiday cottages are a haven for rabbits, badgers and red squirrels. They are host to dozens of species of migrant and resident birds including woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches, while the Fells above us are home to skylarks, curlews, buzzards and peregrine falcons.
