“Fabulous house for large groups, lovely location”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The house is in a beautiful part of the Lake District, set in an idyllic location and really is an escape to the country.

Fabulous house for a large group, we visited for a 70th birthday family weekend with adults and children, there is a lot of space for everyone to spread out, the large kitchen diner is great as is the second lounge.

The house itself could do with some updating, hot water wasn't working properly, kitchen/crockery all a bit grubby, we gave feedback and the owners have indicated a kitchen refurb and new heating/water system is planned soon, if the house is given a good deep clean every now and then and redecorated in places this will make it a more pleasant stay. It wasn't very clean on arrival, slightly annoying as we had to clean before using the house, this was an issue with the cleaners apparently which the owners have now rectified. For the cost of the house we didn't really expect this. The owners have apologised but I was surprised no part refund was offered due to the inconvenience, but they've promised the issues have been rectified for future though and we are looking forward to re-visiting once the updates/issues are completed.

Outside is a lovely space with built in bbq and picnic bench, another table and chairs would be useful to accommodate larger groups. Lovely walks.

There aren't many shops etc.around, I had arranged a tesco delivery to the house which was really very useful, there is a small hamlet with a shop/butchers if you turn left onto the lane and left onto the main road about a mile or so on the right. Eskdale stores is also ok for odd bits. There are a few pubs with 15 minute drive none are really "safe walking distance".

Fantastic scenery around, drive up to the Hardknott Pass, amazing views and over to Coniston or up to Whitehaven. The Ravenglass Railway is a fun trip out.

Wifi and tv a bonus especially with the teenagers.

Will definitely be revisiting.

“Plenty of Space in a great location”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We travelled in a large group with ages from early teens to late 50's. There was plenty of space to eat and play together but also room to do things seperately. It was a well equiped although do read the instructions fully, especially to operate the electric cooker. Clean and tidy. We had one problem with the dish washer but a phone call prompted an immediate response to resolve the issue.

A great base location to visit further afield.
