About & Contact

Picturesque and private detached 1 bedroom cottage

A romantic and unusual one bedroom detached cottage set on its own with superb fell and valley views.

Set apart and slightly secluded, Stanley Ghyll was once the bothy, or workroom of former owner and renowned craftsman Arthur Irving, who used to carve walking sticks with rams horns as their handles! This is a peaceful choice of cottage, with a separate walled garden to the side, in which you can enjoy afternoon tea with home-made cake from the Eskdale Stores or a barbecue in the evening with local Woodall's Cumberland sausages, the Queen's supplier! Inside, Stanley Ghyll has an upstairs snug with indescribable fell views, and downstairs is a brand new spacious kitchen, installed in early 2018 as well as double bedroom with recently fitted marble shower room.

If you require a cottage with ground floor facilities, Stanley Ghyll can boast these too.

'Stanley Ghyll was exactly what the doctor ordered! Relaxed, refreshed and calm once again! Ready to charge off the starting blocks in the big smoke rat race. Truly spectacular scenery and we will definitely be back!'

Accommodation summary: Ground floor: combined kitchen/dining area, brand new in 2018, and one step down to 1 double bedroom with king-size bed and new marble shower room recently installed. First floor: upstairs snug with comfortable sofa, flat screen TV and fell views.

Meet the owner

Greg Poole

Now in our 29th year of providing exclusive, luxury accommodation here at Bridge End Farm Cottages, myself, Greg, and the team at Select Cottages are assuredly well-versed in providing all our guests with a truly exceptional Lakeland experience. Having lived and brought up a family in The Farmhouse, we now often return for our own holidays, as you can see from the photos! My connections with Premier Cottages go back a long way too! As one of the founding members and original Directors I introduced the name 'Premier Cottages' and served on the Board the first 4 years with responsibility for the brochure, marketing and recruitment. I am very proud that Bridge End Farm Cottages are one of less than a dozen properties that have remained under the same ownership and have continuously advertised in Premier Cottages in all 20 years of its existence! We look forward to personally welcoming you and your family in our Lakeland paradise!
