About Cocklety How Stable Loft

Cocklety How Stable Loft is perfect for couples, families or friends who want more than merely a place to stay while exploring the Lake District, and want a welcoming home-away-from-home. The location in a quiet group of converted farm buildings at the foot of Catbells is incredibly peaceful and picturesque, and with the southern shores of Derwentwater and Grange village being less than a mile from the cottage, and Keswick only five miles away, you can easily access some of the most beautiful sights in the Lake District National Park.

Step outside the front door and in under an hour, you can be standing atop Catbells surveying breathtaking views over the Borrowdale Valley, Derwent Water and the national park. It truly is that simple when you stay at Cocklety How Stable Loft or one of the other fantastic holiday properties at Manesty, as there are memorable walks you can access directly from the property. The owners have thoughtfully provided self-guided leaflets to enable you to enjoy their favourite walks to Castle Crag and along the Derwent River, to the Bowder Stone, through Manesty Woods, or along Maiden Moor to High Spy and Rigghead. Further afield, Blencathra, Helvellyn, and the mountain peaks of Skiddaw and Scafell Pike beckon to walkers who enjoy a challenge.

If cycling is your preferred way of getting outdoors, you will not be disappointed with the opportunities around the northern Lake District. Whinlatter Forest has purpose-built mountain bike trails to suit every ability, or if you prefer to stay on the roads, you can tackle Honister, Newlands or Whinlatter Passes, or further afield the quiet country lanes around the Back o’ Skiddaw. Guests at Cocklety How Stable Loft can store bikes under cover, and there are bike hire and repair shops in Keswick. Boating is another exciting way to discover the delights of Derwentwater and the Derwent River, whether you hire a boat and paddle or sail yourself, or take a seat on a regular Edwardian ferry service.

Keswick has everything guests could need including a supermarket, twice-weekly market (Thursday and Saturday), useful shops and independent boutiques, and a choice of places to eat and drink if you don’t feel like cooking. It also has several specialist museums, including the Keswick Museum, Derwent Pencil Museum and Puzzling Place, as well as a theatre and cinema. Keswick is the main town in the northern Lakes and you can get there from Manesty via bus, boat or boot if you prefer not to drive.

The Lake District is the perfect holiday destination whether you are a couple or a family, enjoy relaxing or love an adrenaline rush, want culture or prefer to spend your break in quiet contemplation. Staying at Cocklety How Stable Loft puts you in the heart of this beautiful landscape and within reach of favourite Lake District attractions.
