– A wonderful cottage in a beautiful place. We thoroughly enjoyed our family weekend. Would love to come back but as the family grows….! Thank you for a lovely house which was equipped with everything we needed.

Girls weekend in the country Just got back from a fantastic weekend at Stag Cottage with my friends. Booked as an Easter weekend break for us. The location is absolutely beautiful. Rural but within an easy drive of Penrith if you need anything. The cottage has everything you could need for 6 people! The kitchen is more well stocked than my own home! The 3 ensuite bathrooms made it perfect so that no one was waiting around to get showered, washed etc. This is the third time I've stayed in one of Rowley Estates cottages and as with the other two it is the perfect break away from everything. Contact with Jilly and Christine was consistent and they answered all the questions I had within a couple of hours. The fact that it is dog friendly just takes it to the next level. A secure garden so I could let her out to have a run around without having to be on lead was such a plus and what so many cottages lack. Can't wait to book again

Couldn't be better We were delighted with our stay at Stag cottage. Accommodation was excellent - very comfy bed and linen. Wifi, t.v, radio all worked well. As for welcome pack... i've never seen anything quite like it... bread, butter, cereal, juice, toffee, wine, milk etc etc... Also the kitchen supplies were excellent - herbs and spices, tea towels, washing up liq, dishwasher tabs etc.. Local pub very welcoming although we didn't eat there. Had breakfast at the village bakery - highly recommended

Lovely few days break for the New Year. Cottage was amazing – spotlessly clean with ever facility we required. First class service from Christine & Jilly too. Our first time here but definitely not our last. Thanks so much.

A great 5 days at Stag Cottage. Weather couldn’t have been better for this time of year and the cottage couldn’t have been cosier after a day in the fresh air. Our return visit after 7 years did not disappoint.

2017 Shaun’s 60th celebration. Thank you for a relaxing stay, the cottage is beautiful and we enjoyed long walks on the estate and grounds. It was lovely to come back to the log fire after being out all day. Once again thank you! P.S. Birthday balloons and banner a lovely touch.

Beautiful location Stag Cottage, Melmerby is a beautiful character cottage, lots of atmosphere with modern kitchen. Lovely private garden. Situated in village with tasty cafe/bakery and friendly pub serving excellent food. Walks nearby. Welcome hamper with all local produce was really appreciated. Would definitely stay here again. This property has an internal adjoining door to melmerby Hall so ideal if your party has a larger number of guests

Fantastic Cottage in a beautiful location, we had the privilege of not having anyone else around and found the tranquillity of it marvellous. Excellent facilities within the cottage, all we could wish for. Perfect. The pre-prepared fire was an especially nice touch. thank you so much. Ms L.

What an excellent introduction to the village from the lady in the teashop/store, it only got better when we arrived at the cottage a beautiful well thought out accommodation with every possible thing you could need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, after a day out it was a pleasure to come back and relax in the comfortable sitting room with wood burn stove. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to any one, what a thoughtful gift with the hamper. Hope to see you again soon. Mrs E
