If you're looking for that ideal escape, with a touch of luxury, then Stafford House is the perfect place to be.
Built in the 1800's this enchanting Grade 11 listed "Folly" is set in the magnificent grounds of Greystoke Castle.
Traditionally furnished to a high standard, it still retains the original oak beams, bags of character and comfortable charm.
Only 10 minutes from the M6 Motorway, we are perfectly situated so that you can enjoy the beautiful Lake District. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists and motorcyclists, and especially for those who would just like to relax, enjoy the peace and tranquillity, soak up the beautiful surroundings and let themselves totally unwind.
A warm and friendly welcome awaits all of our Guests, and in the morning to set you up for the rest of the day a full and hearty English style Breakfast awaits you. Sourced from the very best local produce helps us to serve you a Real Taste of the Lake District.
We have two Double Bedrooms one of which is En-Suite and is on the 2nd floor.
However please note that the second Double Bedroom (The Standard Double Room) and the Twin room can be found on the 1st Floor and have the use of the same Bathroom/Shower Room.
Please be assured that when both rooms are in use we make every possible effort to keep the Bathroom clean and replenished at all times.
All of our Bedrooms have Freeview Television/DVD, a Hospitality Tray which is complete with various beverages and biscuits.
In the Mini fridge you will find bottled water, a plate of fresh fruit and UHT milk, however if you would prefer we also offer a jug of fresh milk too.
There are also Luxurious Robes on the bed, a Hairdryer, and a Rotating Fan.
The lounge is on the second floor, and is one where you just can’t help but relax. Sit back and watch the large screen television which is connected to SKY, play a DVD or even a video.
You may just want to read a book, paper or magazine while the CD or radio is playing quietly in the baclground.
We also offer free WiFi, just in case you have something on your laptop or phone that just won’t wait.
We will do our very best to help make your stay here at Stafford House as enjoyable as possible, and if this is your first visit to The Lake District, then I can almost guarantee that it won’t be your last.
