Fantastic House
A huge house with plenty of bedrooms and living space. We were quite a bit family that stayed 11 in all and had plenty of room to move around. It's located literally on the island with a couple of pubs nearby and a take-away style place almost attached to the house. It also has a restaurant. You need a car staying here in reality as it is a little remote but some of the views along the walk way joining the island to the main land are fantastic. The rooms are a little dated but clean - one was a little cool due to the vents in the bathroom but close the door and it is fine. Each room is ensuite with a tv. Downstairs has a well appointed kitchen and living room with a nice conservatory overlooking the sea. It served well as a base for use to travel to the lakes as Barrow itself wasn't the most interesting place (sorry!) The lakes are accessible within 30 mins drive and definitely worth a visit with some lovely towns on the way.

Excellent !
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!

A beautiful setting in a lovely part of the country. The house was excellent, plenty of space so no one getting on top of each other.

Roa Island House is a beautiful place to stay and enjoy time with a large family group of friends, it is large enough not to get under each others feet. It was extremely well equipped in all aspects and there was plenty to keep all ages occupied even in terrible weather. The kitchen was especially good, you can easily cater for a large group with fantastic ovens and two large fridges, amazing.
Ms Gale

Fantastic holiday for 14 people aged from 6 - 70, nobody wanted to come home. The children could have stayed for much longer. It was my husband's 70th birthday present he will never forget it.
