Holiday home
Kingfisher Barn is a first and second floor apartment in the Lake District village of Staveley. The apartment sleeps four people and has two double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an open plan living area with a kitchen and a sitting area. Outside there is roadside parking directly outside the cottage. The local village offers a good range of amenities. With the popular towns of Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick all easily accessible by car or bus, Kingfisher Barn is ideally located for couples looking to discover the majesty of the Lake District National Park.

Area
Staveley is situated between Kendal and Windermere and has gained a reputation as the Gateway to the Lakes. It is mainly comprised of picturesque, grey slate buildings, sandwiched between the rivers Kent and Gowan. This once forested area was grazed as early as 4000BC. Iron Age farmers settled first and were followed by the English and Scandinavians and evidence of these early civilizations can be found throughout the region. The village has an excellent range of amenities including a variety of shops, two pubs, craft shops and a railway station. Nearby, Windermere and Ambleside offer a number of attractions such as boat trips on Lake Windemere and a ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park.

Region
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Self-Catering Reviews

Loved the Kingfisher Barn cannot wait to book again.. My only negative is I didn’t want to come home

We really didn't like the toilet in a cupboard in the kitchen.. The upstairs toilet was not comfortable for a man to use - very short on head space due to the extreme sloping roof. The shower side panel over the bath is too short and consequently, the floor could get very wet!! When we arrived, the first thing we noticed was a cupboard door missing in the kitchen, together with one of the drawer fronts. These were found in the entrance porch on top of a cupboard! There were also two light bulbs not working. All this was reported to your office a couple of days after we arrived and we were told that something would be done, but nobody arrived in the next three days. The downstairs was spacious and well equipped, but the toilet and bathroom facilities were not sufficient for four adults. We had a good holiday and the weather was really good.

In light of the coronovirus pandemic you should have cancelled our booking and either refunded our money or held our booking over to another date.. As it was we left a day early. This spoilt our visit.

We found upon arrival that we needed a code to obtain the keys from a secure holder next to the door.. The booking.com call centre was eventually helpful but it involved a long waiting period where we weren't confident that anyone would eventually answer. This system assumes that you have mobile internet access, good English and plenty of phone time. The apartment itself was lovely and spacious. The bathroom upstairs was good but tall or heavily built visitors may find the space somewhat limited.

We had a lovely week in Kingfisher Barn, however our feedback echoes that in the visitor book within the cottage - the king size mattress urgently needs replacing as it’s terribly saggy and gave us both a stiff back, and the hot water on the shower has only one temperature, scorching.. Also, it would be helpful if your instructions mentioned where to park.

Not having a designated parking space was the only issue, parking on the road was not ideal due to tractors and their trailers passing at speed a couple of times per day.. Location and accommodation very good.

There was just something about King Fisher Barn that has made it my favourite.. I felt really comfortable living there, a home from home with added quirkiness. Some lovely peaceful walks on the doorstep added to the experience.
Mrs Borovac

Lovely location, however parking was not well-explained in the online information.. Very comfortable, well-equipped, although wi-fi and TV a little variable. Plentiful local information leaflets (some prices a little out of date) and helpful apartment information. Piano was a bonus!
Mrs Ottaway

Lovely lounge and kitchen.. Good place to be based for exploring the Lakes. However the bathroom needed some attention - mould around bath where sealed to wall, shower screen too short for position of shower head so water on the floor, toilet seat loose, no toilet roll holder. Bedroom smelt of damp, WiFi not working for half of our stay. I would not stay at this property again.

We had a fabulous time in Kingfisher barn Staveley Cumbria.. It was everything we hope for and more, tastefully furnished and like home from home. Great location for walking in the fells and only 10 minutes drive from Lake Windermere with it's bustling atmosphere and a wide variety of restaurants. An amazing place for star gazing as it has very low light pollution. The staff at the Cumbria office were extremely helpful and friendly, offering advice on places to dine that were nearest to the cottage which really helped. We would definitely recommend it, and would happily stay here again. regards the courtney family.

Had a brilliant week in a fantastic location made even better by the weather.. Would like to have been better informed about lack of parking as we had two cars. No complaints otherwise
Mrs Carr

We had a great relaxing holiday.. Cottage was well equipped, cosy and comfy and very well situated in a quiet area in the village. We particularly like the way the owners have utilised the space. Brewery, bakery and butcher close by and recommended. Been to Staveley several times and just love the area. Thanks again

Cleaners turned up and knocked the door at 9:40 - made up feel pressured to leaving.. Cobwebs on ceiling in each room, had to hoover ourselves.

Very relaxing week. Our third visit to Staveley using different cottages each time. We were out on plenty of walks and sat outside the Hawkshead Brewery a couple of times. A really good break.

The location was fantastic, just outside the village centre, not far from a great pub with easy train access to Windermere. it was clean and recently re-furbished, great view from the kitchen up the valley. Good quality all round. I have already recommend it to friends.
Mrs Hughes

The location of the cottage in the village of Staveley was perfect. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. We love the surrounding area for walking and being able to take the dog. Being able to park up the car and not use it for the whole week was perfect.

The accommodation was overall of a high standard, the owners have thought of everything, even down to a hair dryer! The furnishings were lovely, especially loved their choice of pictures of the surrounding lakes district. Staveley is a great little village in a picturesque landscape. I loved being near to the weir waterfall and hearing the water rushing whilst in the kitchen. The view towards Kentmere is pretty in the morning too.
