“Amazing Unforgettable Weekend”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A party of 12 adults and 4 kids stayed here for a long weekend at end of Jan to celebrate 40th Birthday. Property exceeded our expectations, amazing house with plenty of space, great views and well equipped. We have stayed at many properties in Cumbria but this beats the lot. We were met by Helen and Eric on our arrival, who showed us around and everything we needed to know. The house had a warm welcoming feeling as you walked through the door and was decorated with great modern taste whilst keeping traditional look. All our guests expressed interest in booking the house themselves in the future. If you have kids it is a great place for them to have fun, and especially if they like hide & seek! We would just like to thank Helen & Eric for making our weekend so special and will have no hesitation in booking Bankfield again in the future, I am sure we will be back. Thankyou

“Bliss”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Lovely house. Warm, cosy and homely. Excellent amenities. Clean throughout. Excellent location and wonderful views of the bay. We are a large group of friends aged late 20s to early 30s with 2 dogs. All enjoyed the house immensely.

“Absolutely Cracking!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

A group of ten of us have just returned from an amazing stay at Bankfield House. We are all experiencing fairly severe cases of post-holiday blues after coming home from such a lovely place to stay. Well-equipped and beautiful I would recommend a stay at this enormous property to anyone! Within walking distance to the sea and surrounded by rolling hills Bankfield House is a real gem in a wonderful area of the country. Thanks so much to Eric and Helen for providing us with such a lovely backdrop to our perfect weekend!

“Unforgettable Weekend!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Another incredible stay in Bankfield House.
We were particularly impressed with the warmth of the house on what was otherwise a chilly November weekend, and the increased fridge-space to keep the drinks cool!
We had a great time preparing our meal for Saturday night, making good use of the eclectic crockery and of course the Aga.
And of course, we all fell in love with the stunning bedrooms and beautiful views.
Thank you!
