Things To Do in Old Hutton

The quaint village of Oxenholme is about 2.5 miles from The Old Stables where at the Station Inn you can sample real regional ale beside its large wood burning stove and tuck into a Cumbrian steak and mushroom pie with black pudding and cheddar mash. As its name implies, the pub is beside the railway station where you can catch the train to Windermere right in the heart of the Lake District. Here you will find arts and crafts shops and a good choice of dog-friendly pubs and restaurants. Take a hop-on-hop-off cruise on the lake where your pup can travel free of charge.

Closer to the cottage is Helm Hill, a 500ft elevation that forms part of a 2.5-mile loop trail up to Castlesteads Fort where there are sweeping views over the Lake District that stretch as far as Morecambe Bay.

Take the six-minute drive into Kendal to stroll through its historic streets and stock up on some mint cake. Just outside the town is Levens Hall’s gardens is a dog-friendly option where you can marvel at the world’s oldest and oldest collection of topiary. On the dog-friendly Kitchen Terrace you can have a refreshing pot of tea and a slice of cake, and there’s fresh water and treats for your four-legged tearaway.

Last Word

For an unforgettable reunion of family or friends this desirable destination cannot fail to impress even the most discerning guest. This stable conversion has all the elements fit for an interior design magazine centrefold. The five bedrooms over two levels have been furnished and finished to a high standard with a choice of twin, double and king size.

Thanks to its rural location The Old Stables boasts some of the most spectacular views in the area. After a challenging hike, perhaps up 500ft at nearby Helm Hill, you can sink into the plush outdoor sofas and enjoy a sundowner while you take in the vista. To ease away the aches and pains there warm bubbles of the spacious hot tub await.

Despite being off the beaten track it is not too far from some of Cumbria’s main attractions such as Lake Windermere that is 25 minutes by road and only 16 minutes by train which regularly leaves from the station at nearby Oxenholme. If you want more than a pint of Cumbrian Gold then walk the 2.5 miles from the cottage to the Station Inn for a swift one. Climb aboard the train for the quick journey to the UK’s largest lake where at Bowness-on-Windermere there are more than a couple of traditional pubs.

The Old Stables puts self-catering stayactions in a totally different league with its great outdoor space and an interior that is going to add a dash of pure luxury to your time away.
