About Philip Rowbottom

We are lucky enough to live, work and bring up our family in the Lake District National Park, North West England. We are passionate about providing luxury holiday accommodation in the Lake District and would love to share our beautiful cottages and village with others. Our background is in the Hospitality business and the knowledge we have gained over the years has made it possible to provide you with two of the very best self-catering cottages in Staveley. We have worked hard to make our cottages what they are and hope that you will come and enjoy them. We have a wealth of knowledge of the Lake District which we are happy to share both in person and via the information we have ready for you in the cottages. We hope to welcome you to one of our cottages very soon.

Philip Rowbottom purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Philip Rowbottom chose Staveley

We bought Fell Cottage in 2006. Whilst spending time renovating it to an extremely high standard, we fell in love with the location and ended up buying and settling in our family home across the road. The area is rural but within easy reach of the village for walking the children to school or a stroll down to the pub. The M6 motorway is only 15 minutes and the whole of the Lake District is on our doorstep. What more could you want?

There are a host of both short and more strenuous walks straight from the doorstep which we are more than happy to advise on.

Other: In another outhouse, to the rear of the property is a sauna to help you unwind after a long day on the fells, or just relax with a good book.
