A large group of us stayed in this property for our friends 30th Birthday. The house was absolutely perfect, great garden and the jacuzzi was brilliant! We were surprised to find the 'observatory' room up on the 3rd floor which offered amazing views of the sea and the sunset. Everyone slept well in comfy beds and their was plenty of space for us all in the communal areas. There was an endless amount of plates, cutlery and fridge/freezer space. I would definitely recommend.
The only negative comments I have is that it would be nice if there was basic things like tea/coffee/sugar and dishwasher tablets, these are basic amenities that you are usually provided with. It would also have been nice to have been provided with more logs for the fire, we had been given enough to light a fire, but couldn't find anymore.. which seems a little pointless!

Main house and bedrooms were very good. The conservatory needs to be updated furniture not adequate too many tables and chairs not enough comfy chairs.
Stayed here for 3 nights with 9 friends. The house is exceptional, it definitely catered well for all of us with plenty of kitchen equipment. The seating areas, hot tub etc were very well planned out and the rooms were lovely too. All the bathrooms appeared brand new and we really couldn't have asked for more.
The oven is in need of an update as it was very slow and unpredictable but otherwise we had everything we needed to cook breakfast/ dinner (albeit a simple one given oven situ)
The location of the house is very remote, but there is a brilliant cafe next door and to be honest, other than a trip to Ulverston and to the Wax Lyrical Outlet (highly recommended) staying in at the house was perfect.
It's likely we would go and stay here again.

Stayed here in October 2014 with a group of friends, 12 of us in total. It's a great venue with fabulous views from some of bedrooms. A bit of a strange set up with the bedrooms downstairs but all very adequate. Only a few gripes, as we were doing all our own cooking I thought it a bit strange there was not a kitchen knife to be found, an essential bit of kit I would think. The kitchen was very dated and tired, the oven was a bit hard to fathom and there was not enough cupboard space to store the food we had brought. The hot tub was a great asset but very small. The open fire in the living room was just lovely but it was a squeeze getting everyone in on a nightime, we had to utilise the chairs from the dining room. The house is large and there are plenty of places for guests to spread out and do there own thing. It has obviously been a fabulous house in its day and it's a shame it's not more cared for, weeds on the drive and the back garden is not great, a little more care and attention to detail could really make this place special. Our group did have a lovely time in this great house but I'm afraid I would only return if it were to be upgraded. This building has so much potential.
