Those looking for accommodation for a large party need look no further than this superb detached manor house, which has the space to sleep up to 16 people.

With seven bedrooms, this imposing yet elegant manor house is the perfect solution for anyone looking to house a large gathering of family or friends. There are two sitting rooms, each with their own fire and two fitted kitchens. The garden is part of a shared area, although there is a private patio with ample opportunity for a spot of outdoor dining. For eating in, there is a dining-room with a huge table to seat the full complement of 16 guests. The views from this property take in the Kentmere Valley, the Lakeland Falls and Morecambe Bay – and are truly breathtaking.


A lovely big house suitable for a family get together with a friendly and helpful owner. In a beautiful area of the lakes.
Mrs Bryan

What a great house for large parties. Lots of rooms and bathrooms and some with great views towards kentmere and morecombe bay. Surrounded by farmland and sheep and a healthy walk into stavely this was a great option for us. We prefer a bit of peace and quiet and you may not find it nearer the centre of the Lake District. Kitchen was large and well equipped though frying pans could be updated. I would definitely return to this part of the lakes and this house.

Ghyll Bank House is in a superb location with amazing views over the countryside. Amenities in the nearby village better than expected The lounge was large enough for everybody to sit comfortably, and the dining room had a table large enough for everybody to sit round. The kitchen was modern and well equipped.
Mrs Willan

Ghyll Bank House had lots of space with a very well equipped kitchen; the two dish washers were useful. The views from the house were spectacular and we could walk up the hills straight from the house.
Mrs Craig

The house accommodated a large varied group very well and the position is great.
