Description

2 Seed Howe Cottages is a beautiful example of a successful cottage restoration within the traditional village of Staveley and now ticks all the boxes that our discerning guests have come to expect from our quality self catering home from homes. The village has thrived since its bypass several years ago and is a great place for a first or returning visit to the Lakes. The Kentmere Valley offers great walking opportunities for all abilities and those cyclists among you can even hire on a daily or weekly basis from Wheelbase, one of the UK’s leading specialists. Of course, the more popular resorts of Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside are well within reach either by car, Stagecoach Bus or rail, Staveley offering a regular service into Windermere, ideal for a day’s sightseeing.
A fine wood burning stove sits proudly against the back drop of an ancient exposed wall here at 2 Seed Howe Cottages, the flagged floors and large exposed trusses, stripped and oiled to perfection reminders of a bygone era when the owner’s great grandparents lived in this unassuming mid terrace. Quality fixtures and fittings have been carefully chosen and placed to ensure your comfort, the outside spaces having been equally attended to by way of some lovely modern decking within a private patio area. We think you’ll agree, 2 Seed Howe Cottage really is a place where you and your loved ones can relax and unwind and spend some precious holiday time together.

About the local area

Lake Windermere is perhaps the best know area in the Lake District and Windermere village itself is about 1km from the lake. The lake stretches from Waterhead, near Ambleside, to Lakeside at its narrow southern end, over 10 miles in length and the largest lake in England. Wooded slopes dotted with cottages and houses line its shores, while the water itself is usually busy with ferries and yachts.

Windermere is not as busy as it's near neighbour, Bowness-on-Windermere, but has its own charms and attractions. It has excellent amenities and a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars all within easy reach. The village has good public transport links with its own train station and bus routes.

Troutbeck Bridge lies to the north in between Windermere and Ambleside; handy for both but located just off the beaten track. Troutbeck Bridge has its own local amenities including a public swimming pool and a local pub. Between Troutbeck Bridge and the Low Wood Hotel lies Brockhole - The Lake District Visitor Centre. This has an adventure playground, exhibitions, cafe, shop and extensive grounds down to the lake and jetty.

Situated between Kendal and Windermere is the lovely village of Staveley which is often referred to as the Gateway to the Lakes. It mainly comprises of grey slate buildings which are nestled between the Rivers Kent and Gowan. It is ideally placed for exploring the rest of the Lake District and is only a few minutes away from the beautiful Kentmere valley.
