  • Just 4 miles from popular Ullswater, on the edge of the Lake District National Park
Property code: SZ276

Perfect for couples, this delightful period cottage provides homely accommodation in a peaceful village location.

Set in the heart of the popular village of Stainton, this property is a short walk from a friendly 18th-century pub. The village is home to a hotel with a good restaurant, and a village shop which also operates as a post office. Ideally located for exploring the northern part of the Lake District, the cottage is just 4 miles North of Ullswater, where lakeside walks, picnics, kayaking and cruising on the Ullswater Steamers can all be enjoyed. Discover local history at nearby Lowther Castle or browse the independent shops and eateries of Penrith or Keswick. On the edge of the village The Alpaca Clothing Company is well worth a visit, or just a short drive away is the Rheged Centre offering shops, cafes and a 3D cinema.

Tastefully refurbished, this cosy cottage retains much of its 18th-century charm while also offering plenty of 21st-century home comforts. With exposed beams, a grandmother clock, a wood burner-effect electric fire and pleasant views across the green, the lounge is the perfect spot to relax with a good book or make use of the Smart TV. At the rear of the property, a modern kitchen with a slate floor contains an electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and large Smeg fridge with an ice compartment. Homecooked meals can be enjoyed in the adjoining dining room where the French doors leading outside, can be open or closed depending on the weather. An open-tread staircase leads up to the first floor, where the two bedrooms are located. An elegant double overlooks the village green, while the single includes a desk and chair, should anyone need to work while away. There is also a modern bathroom with shower over the bath. The eco friendly air source heat pump keeps the cottage cosy and warm.

Step outside from the kitchen onto a sheltered raised patio area complete with a table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals in the sunshine. The outside tap is useful for washing off muddy boots and paws. There is off road parking at the property for 1 car.

We really loved our stay at Jesmond cottage. It's comfortable, cosy, clean and extremely well equipped. The location is perfect; Stainton is a pretty and quiet village with easy access to Ullswater and surrounding fells. Great food to be found at the Brentwood hotel in the village as well.

The cottage was in little village with 2 pubs close by. It had a lovely enclosed garden which we didn't use due to the time of year but would be lovely in the summer. The cottage has everything you need for a lovely break, location about 15 miles from keswick, ullswater has some nice walks, and windermere is about an hours drive.

The cottage was an excellent fit for a weekend in the Lake District. More than fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Very clean and tidy. The owners have thought very carefully about how to care for their holiday guests. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property and management company. Just be careful if, like me, Read moreyou're over 6 feet tall, as you may hit your head in the main bedroom! Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
