“Mr”
Reviewed 8 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I booked this property for my brother's stag do. We wanted somewhere entirely out of the way so we could be as noisy as we liked without disturbing other people as there was 18 of us in total.
I and my friends could not have been happier with the our weekend at Crookhurst. The main farmhouse is spacious and well furnished. It has been quite recently modernised and the workmanship is top notch. The beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with glasses and all the utensils you would need for a proper self catering soirée.
We met Brenda on the Friday and she is absolutely lovely. She couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating, assuring us that if we needed anything at all she was only a phone call away. We didn't need anything else though because everything was so well prepared for us.
The scenery surrounding the house is gorgeous, rolling fields that the sun sets over turning everything orangey-pink. There's a garden where that overlooks this lovely landscape. We had a BBQ with us and we sat outside each night and drank in the country air.
I also cannot emphasise value for money here enough either. Very reasonable rates.
Overall we were so pleased with our stay there is already talk amongst the group of a stag reunion (if there is such a thing!) next year.
Big thanks to Mrs. Wilson for everything.

“Wonderful family Christmas ”
Reviewed 28 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We have just spent a wonderful Christmas staying at the farmhouse (all 12 of us). Brenda couldn't do enough for us and was more than happy to show us around on arrival, despite it being Christmas Eve!

The house was already decorated with a Christmas tree and decorations, which only added to the Magic. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog to roam around and the living room was so cosy with the gas fire and bags of space to spend Christmas morning around the tree.
The kitchen well stocked and we all fit round the table to eat our Christmas dinner and leftovers on boxing day.

The bedrooms are perfectly laid out and warm.

The only things we'd like to see would be more large dishes in the kitchen for serving many people and a larger fridge would be great. However there was plenty of everything else we needed and we wouldn't think twice before planning another stay in the future.

Thanks again.

“Where cherished memories are made”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having just returned home, I wanted to log on & ensure that our review was posted immediately. This has been now our third year in a row we have visited Allonby & stayed at the Crookhurst Farmhouse, the first two years were with our daughter now 12, but this time we also travelled up with our little adopted boys age 1 & 2 & of course our little chihuahua. Brenda the owner welcomes you with such friendly northern heart, arms ready for a hug & our little boys felt welcome straight away. The house is lovely & each time we come, there are more renovations complete, even though we thought it was perfect before. It was,the lounge room this time its now considerably larger & very accommodating, As a family with young children, this house is perfect in every way, stair gates, travel cots & even toys. We do love it here & will definitely ensure that Crookhurst & Allonby become a regular part of our cherished holiday memories. Thank you Brenda as always xx

“Absolutely fantastic! :)”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our stay was very pleasant. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who was lovely and gave us a tour of the house and two cottages. We were really impressed how stocked it was with all dishes provided. The owner even went out of her way to get us a muffin tin as we had left ours at home! Everything was very clean when we arrived and there was plenty of space at the dining table and in the living room for us all to gather. There is loads to do within a short drive and Allonby and the beach is a short walk away. I would definitely recommend Crookhurst to anybody and we will definitely be coming again! :)
