At Stybarrow Cottage our aim is to provide comfortable accommodation so that you can enjoy your stay in the Lake District - whether you're paddling in the lake with the kids and need somewhere to dry the wellies; whether you're running up those hills and want a warm shower or bath to come back to; whether you want to relax in the garden and enjoy the scenery; or whether you want to enjoy a good meal with family and friends.

But don't just take our word for it. Here's what some of our visitors have had to say:

Ruth, James, Rosie, Jim, Carrie and Bin - Cornwall, Burnley and Glasgow
Cottage perfect in every way. Glenridding beautiful in its Spring foliage; Lake District idyllic. We will return home relaxed and refreshed.

Nigel and Helen, Lincolnshire
Wonderful holiday ~ beautiful cottage ~ exceeds expectations.

Fantastic place. Will definitely be booking again. Nice and cosy and warm inside for those wet days and brilliantly located for dry days!

Another lovely stay, our first in November. The autumn colours were stunning - wonderful village!

Extremely comfortable and well appointed cottage. Will definitely recommend to others. Thank you for all your help.

Had a lovely few days here. Wonderful views from all of the windows, especially the top room. A lovely, cosy cottage. Will definitely recommend it and hope to visit again soon.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with great views! Great top bedroom with views to die for and a very comfy bed. Spent a great week relaxing and walking. Already planning our next trip.

Great cottage, well equipped. Lovely time. Everything you could need and more.... Everything fab. We will be back.

Tori and Steve, The Wirral
Online expectations had already set a certain picture in our heads, but it's much, much cooler in the flesh! Great cottage, garden, bits in it, fab location, moody fire and views to die for.

Mick and Sally, Manchester
Your cottage is truly delightful .... Hope to return soon. Thanks for a super week.

Phil and Diana, St Albans
Marvellous stay in a lovely cottage (especially the top room). Weather was good all week! Enjoyed the wonderful scenery without ever venturing more than 5 miles from Glenridding. Many thanks.

The Evans family, Lincolnshire
The cottage is perfect - comfortable, clean, home-from-home. We come every year and never get bored, finding new interesting places to visit as well as returning to visit old favourites.

Liz and Nick, The Wirral
Lovely cosy and comfortable cottage. Absolutely everything thought about. Fantastic walks.

Martin and family, Durham and London
The cottage more than met our expectations - very comfortable - everything here we wanted - or could want. It felt more like a home than a "rental" - from the welcoming fire to the little things. Many thanks for enabling us to have a relaxing, yet energetic long weekend in the hills.

The Hodgson family (lots of us) from the USA via Kendal
Lovely warm cottage, fantastic walks and the Lake District is the prettiest National Park

Mark, Isabel, Helen, Cat and Ian from Cheshire and Australia
Thank you very much for the great welcome, [Christmas] tree, present, lit fire, etc. We have had a wonderful week here. The cottage is perfect and I hope we'll be able to return.

The AKS Duke of Edinburgh Award leaders love staying in this cottage - we always have a warm welcome and the beds are lovely and comfortable after a day out on the hills, checking on our students who were doing their Gold D of E practice expeditions. An added bonus was sitting outside on the patio to have breakfast in the sunshine! We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough - it ticks all the boxes.
