The Wheelhouse @ Staveley
We stayed at The Wheelhouse for a long weekend Thurs to Fri for a girls quiet break away. From the booking process, the arrival to when we left we could not fault anything, the communications were excellent and the property is outstanding especially the sauna.
The property is immaculately clean with all mod con fittings carried out to a high specification. Located in a quiet village - which suited us. It served as an excellent base for us to travel to all locations in around The Lake District without the hustle and bustle of staying in those areas.
We also discovered some lovely local walks in and around the area and everyone was very friendly . A lovely get away retreat! will definitely be booking to stay again
