The Wheelhouse at Staveley Holiday Home

“ticks all the boxes”

There was nothing we didn’t like or appreciate about The Wheelhouse at Staveley. We genuinely felt blessed to have found it. This is what we loved: -Fast response from owners. -Easy booking system. -Confirmation quickly arrived, with entry advice. -Contact details given freely. -Arrival was easy, self entry clearly explained. -The Wheelhouse on arrival is located exactly as it says on the advertising online. So as we were happy with what we saw online, we had no surprises. -Location, Staveley is a village we discovered last year, we visited twice, at night then, for food. Without realising quite what a well serviced village in a stunning location it is. We would not hesitate to stay in the village again, it feels much better than being in the mass tourism of Windermere and Ambleside etc yet is just minutes by car to the former. -The Wheelhouse is exactly as on the advertising online. 3 bedrooms, 2 double, 1 twin, each of them ideal for us, linen is spotless, beds comfy. Kitchen is well equipped and clean. Bathrooms spick and span and look brand new. Sitting and dining area, a social space, with plenty of room, TV is a decent size, sofas comfy, table seating for about 8. Sauna is internal not outside making it a luxury. Outdoor space is a pretty yard at the front, with seating, bike store and it is in the sun afternoon and evening, which great. Parking front or back 3 cars in total. -Convenience, The Wheelhouse is located a 3 minute walk (tops) from a very good Bakery (More?), an actual Brewery with tours, food and drink, a local butcher, post office, spar and busy pub (all open Sundays). -Scenery and walking – a 3 minute walk and you are heading off into the Kentmere Valley, open countryside and everything the Lakes has to offer. General opinion, we have been coming to the Lakes for many years, both as childless twenty somethings in a tent, then with babies in self catering and now with independent teenagers, it is so difficult to find a place that ticks all the boxes. Quite simply, this does.
