A One Bedroomed Barn Cottage

A sumptuous sofa sits in front of an electric wood-burning effect stove whilst the generous and well-fitted kitchen with a central dining island with a feature oak beam has everything you’ll need for either a weekend or a longer stay.

The generous, natural-themed king-size bedroom has a wealth of exposed beams and an en-suite shower room with a hand basin and WC. Blessed with a private, fully enclosed courtyard garden, and private parking for one car.

With the entrance at ground level, the quirky layout sees the sleeping area to the first floor and the living space to the lower floor.

One of five traditional barn cottages redeveloped for the discerning, modern-day visitor, Stable Cottage has been thoughtfully designed to provide exquisite accommodation for a couple. The emphasis here is very much on natural products, tactile fabrics and a relaxing vibe to ensure you make the most of your precious time away together

Location & Nearby


The Heaning Estate is located just a short distance from the bustling town of Windermere here in the beautiful Lake District, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Set along a private lane off the A591 and just over a mile south of the village, the site is accessed along a sweeping, tree-lined drive and enjoys a commanding presence on the landscape with superb views towards the majestic Howgills, Windermere village and the High Borrans range resulting in a picture-postcard backdrop to this unique estate.

A two-year labour of love has seen the estate owners draw on their own family holiday experiences to ensure they provide their guests with just a little bit more than you’d expect from a self-catering break – a bit more space, a lot more quality, somewhere special to enable everyone to relax, unwind and to share precious family time together.

Along with experienced, local craftsmen and renowned interior designers, the extensive renovation works have involved centuries-old working practices to totally transform the original, imposing Victorian gentleman’s residence and adjacent sixteenth-century barn cottages, groaning with history, into their present-day, pristine condition.

Authentic Lakeland Exteriors And Grounds

The authentic Lakeland exteriors and grounds have been painstakingly rejuvenated and beautifully married with an eclectic interior palate of contemporary living, fashionable dining and distinctive sleeping spaces, all thoughtfully designed with the sole purpose of your assured comfort and enjoyment in mind.

To Suit Your Individual Requirements

The estate comprises no less than five glorious one-bedroomed barn cottages, a stunning three-bedroomed home and an exquisite seven-bedroomed Victorian dwelling which can be booked individually, all together or in any combination to suit your individual requirements.

A really lovely place to stay. Quiet and relaxing, comfy beds and great facilities and fantastic views.
On Saturday, 04 May 2024
Absolutely beautiful. Loved every minute. The cottage smelt divine when we entered, the Pure lakes Diffuser was lovely. The bed was very comfy the amenities were fab. The gardens were also lovely lots of birds and views to die for. The only one niggle was the sofa!. After all day hiking just wanted to sink to something comfy. It was a bit hard. It looked lovely and very modern but to funky

I enjoyed a tranquil getaway. The location is stunning and suitable for a pair. The kitchen is equipped with all necessary items for a brief visit. The bed is cozy and spacious.

Clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Felt like a luxury hotel.
On Friday, 22 Mar 2024
Michelle’s place was a fabulous location, meticulously clean & well decorated. The master bed was extremely comfy, please tell me what mattress that is please! Wet room was brilliant also. Only gripe would be the sofa, but we were out the vast majority of the time so it didn’t matter at all! We will be returning very soon and thanks again for the brilliant stay Michelle. 5* all round from us both xx

Fantastic stay! More than enough room, amazing decor and super cute bathroom on top floor - easy to find with clear instructions how to find the property! Perfect location. Super clean, will definitely be booking again in the future when we return! Only thing that we didn’t love was the TV but other than that PERFECT HOLIDAY HOME 🏡

The property is sympathetically renovated and beautifully furnished. The cottage exudes calm and is lovely and quiet set in the most beautiful grounds of the Heaning Estate. Windermere is a 15/20 min walk away and there are amazing walks from the doorstep! I would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Michelle’s cottage was beautifully situated in a convenient location within the Lake District. More so because they had an electric charging point at the site. All in all a great stay and would highly recommend.

Beautiful and cozy cottage, with some breathtaking views literally a few steps away from the front door. Had an awesome time!
On Friday, 07 Apr 2023
We absolutely loved our stay at this Cottage! It came well equipped and felt so cosy. The bed was so comfortable! The only negative was the sofa is not very comfortable for 2 to chill on. Apart from that we loved the cottage and all the little complimentary bits that were provided. We would definitely stay here again.

On Wednesday, 14 Sep 2022
Such a lovely week at Stable Cottage, close to Windermere but peaceful and tranquil…. overall it was exactly as we expected. A couple of things though that stopped it being a 10/10 were - the sofa is extremely uncomfortable for 2 to relax on for a evening - we ended up either one of us sitting on the floor or we bought the chair from the bedroom. - there was no dishwasher tablets but thankfully we bought our own - the baking trays stick badly and only 1 saucepan was a challenge. - we would have loved to have bbq’d but appreciate closeness of neighbouring cottages prevented us. - the wet room being downstairs off the lounge meant we kept the blinds closed for our stay to prevent passing walkers looking in on us. Regardless of the few points above we did really enjoy our stay - the location was fantastic, cottage was of a really high standard l, views amazing and the little info guide was incredibly helpful.

Fantastic property, great location. The cottage was exceptional, just as described. The cottage had everything we needed for the week, very comfortable was a lovely quiet location, easy commute to Windermere. Would highly recommend.

Wow, what a place! The property was clean and well presented upon arrival, and the estate itself is absolutely gorgeous! If you didn’t want to leave the site, and just stay in the cottage and take in the views, you could. Windermere is a stones throw away and whilst it is a bustling place, the cottage and estate have a quiet and calming feel to it. I would 100% recommend anyone and everyone to come here, we’ve had a beautiful stay and we really couldn’t say anything negative about our experience. Thank you to our host for providing such a beautiful property!!

Absolutely fantastic place! Located in a beautiful setting with a short drive to Windemere/ Bowness. The cottage was immaculate with everything you could ask for and the bed was extremely comfy. This is my third time booking with Lakeland Retreats and they are an excellent company. 100% recommend! Looking forward to booking again in the future. :)

Myself and my husband spent our 1st wedding anniversary at the stable cottage. Michelle and Gerry were so attentive providing exceptional service. The booklet from The Heaning Estate covered everything from sightseeing, spa days, restaurants and takeaway options, these little touches made the stay more comfortable and relaxing. The Stable Cottage was superb, clean and most of all cosy. Location is local to Windermere local attractions. The weather wasn’t great to explore the Lake District, however the stay at the stable cottage was so cosy, we were more than happy to stay in and watch a movie and relax. Lovely experience, on our drive back to Birmingham we were already thinking about our next visit. Definitely would recommend to friends and family. Thank you to The Heaning Estate and Lakeland Retreats.

On Sunday, 26 Sep 2021
The Stable Cottage was a fantastic base for us to explore the wonderful south lakes. The cottage is of the highest standard and our stay was an absolute joy. The Heaning Estate is a real 5 star venue for a peaceful stay in the Lake District. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
On Thursday, 23 Sep 2021
Beautiful cottage and just as good as it looks in the photos. Really well located for accessing Windermere and the rest of the Lake District. Lakeland Retreats were great and sent all the necessary information prior to our stay. Great value and would definitely recommend

We had a week at Stable Cottage. Lovely little cottage which is decorated and equipped to a really nice standard. The bedroom is lovely; it was so nice to lay in bed and to hear the water feature. Lakeland Retreats who manage the property do an excellent job because it was spotless and fresh.They were also very helpful and accommodating with everything - thank you! The estate itself is very pretty with some nice little walks around the grounds and down the lanes. It's only 5 mins drive into Windermere town. If it's a school holiday I'd recommend parking in the Windermere School campus. - only £4 for 4 hours, and only a couple of minutes walk to the town.

The location was great as it was very peaceful and quiet.The cottage was beautifully decorated, had everything we needed for our stay and was definitely luxurious.We especially loved the bedroom which was very spacious and the bed was so comfortable. It was lovely to waking up to the birds and the sound of the water feature each morning.We also enjoyed eating breakfast on the private terrace when the sun was out.All in all, we had a wonderful stay and we will certainly return in the near future.

The stable cottage was a perfect romantic getaway place. It‘s very close to Windermere but its location still allowed for a quiet and calm atmosphere. The check-in and communication process was great and we can’t wait to come back for our next Lake District trip!

Amazing stay in The Stable Cottage! Surrounded by beautiful grounds, 5 minute drive into Windermere and a very stylish cottage! The welcome packs and small touches were lovely, especially for me the Christmas tree! All the tech was very up to date and everywhere was immaculate. The only thing for us, is that the sofa wasn’t very comfortable, but everything else was 5 star! Thank you x
On Friday, 18 Dec 2020
The cottage is absolutely beautiful, it's the perfect place for a couple especially during the cold season. The area is amazing also, you have many shops very near the cottage. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. We also had a Christmas tree wating for us when we arrived which was amazing, the star of the living room. Highly highly recommended.

We had an amazing stay here over a long weekend before the 2nd UK Lockdown took effect. It's a lovely secluded property with plenty to do nearby and some beautiful views of the sky at night. The apartment felt very new, clean and modern. The finishing touches were lovely (fresh clean robes and slippers) and very welcome. Would highly recommend and looking forward to staying again

The stable cottage was a lovely place for two, however there were a few things that were annoying with interior. The shower/ wet room is off the sitting area and There was nowhere to hang towels dressing gown whilst showering without them getting wet, so had to leave on sitting room floor. The modern sofa was uncomfortable and no side tables at sitting height was annoying. The toilet fan was on lightly even when off and was annoying at night. The rest of the decor interior was very well thought out and very modern👍
On Thursday, 22 Oct 2020
Stunning location, beautifully presented cottage and everything you'll need. I would definitely recommend this place for a romantic get away!

“Honestly, this place was an absolute gem! Incredibly clean, well laid out. The TV was fantastic, my wife and I had a really relaxed few days! Honestly this was an absolutely amazing find. Just the post wedding relaxed week my wife and I needed.”
On Saturday, 29 Aug 2020
The Stable Cottage was absolutely beautiful - incredibly clean with lots of lovely, extra-specula touches. It was perfect for a romantic trip to the Lakes, and we would definitely go again. The communication from the host was excellent, and the surroundings were beautiful - just a shame the weather let us down!
