“Ideal - lovely house, lovely location”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Birk How is very well situated in Eskdale Green, above the road so it has good views of the wonderful scenery. Good fun to see and hear the steam trains passing on the narrow gauge railway up the Eskdale Valley. The house is well equipped and comfortable and is an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful and surprisingly tranquil part of the Lake District.

“Beautiful house and great location”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here with our friends (2 adults and a toddler and two adults 2 children 7-12) for the weekend. The house is beautiful not too big but plenty of room, fully equipped for all your families needs and nice and clean. Communication between the owner/manager and myself prior to our trip was excellent and they put up the Xmas dec's for our stay which just made it more special! We visited Muncaster Castle and The Santa Express during out stay and had an excellent time at both. What was particularly great was the Xmas market on at the castle with plenty to do for the kids and adults and only £3 entry for adults definitely would recommend our only regret is that we didn't have longer to explore all the trails and walks and the local pubs! We will be back!!!

“A 'home' with everything, in the Lake District's most beautiful valley.”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This house has a great feel to it, you know you're on holiday but you've got everything to hand just like at home. Would love to enjoy its south facing gardens in summer.
