Brilliant spacious house for a family gathering!
We stayed at Meathop Hall this week - a group of 10 adults, 3 children and 2 little dogs from the one family, all there to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th birthday! We were amazed at the size of the house and the location of the bedrooms/bathrooms were just perfect for our group. We all had our own little area of the house with our own bathrooms plus we had plenty of social spaces to gather all together. The kitchen/breakfast room was bright and cheery (loved the bunting!), the kitchen was spacious and had just about everything we needed in terms of utensils, oven trays, etc. We had a full roast dinner on the Sunday, cooked in the ovens, and had no problems with them at all. We also all managed to fit around the dining table, slightly squashed up but we're all one family so that wasn't a problem for us. The house and furnishings are quirky, slightly worn in places but wonderful. They fit the style of the house. Each bedroom was decorated and furnished in a completely different style and we all enjoyed choosing our favourite to sleep in. The kids enjoyed the 2 staircases and played hide and seek just about every day. They also loved trying to play tunes on the piano! A lot!!!! The front garden was totally enclosed and safe to let our little dogs run around. We spent the evenings sitting around the wood-burning stove which was lovely. The house was warm and cosy. Storm Brian hit while we were there and we had no leaks or draughts. The bathrooms were warm which is a good thing when stepping out of a hot shower on an October morning! All in all, we loved our stay here. It was a lovely old house with lots of little secret places. The decor wasn't immaculate but it didn't take away anything from our holiday. It made the place feel "lived in" and I would certainly go back here for a future visit.

Christmas at Meathop Hall
We stayed here for Christmas week 2016, a family group of 10 plus Molly the chocolate Lab and Lem the Weimaraner. Travelled from North East Scotland and South West England. Lovely warm welcome with cards, cake, the stove fire lit in the dining room and welcoming lights on throughout the house. We had arranged with Lynne the housekeeper to have logs delivered which had been covered for us. The house was much bigger than it had seemed in the pictures. Internet worked in the kitchen, dining room and the bedroom above the kitchen. The enclosed front garden was a great safe place to let the dogs out. Great dining table in the room with the stove fire which wasn't in any pictures. Super for our Christmas dining! The oven wasn't that good. One of them was very low in temperature and took much longer than normal which we found out when we cooked on Christmas Eve, so I was prepared for temp adjustment and extra time for planning Christmas dinner, which was pretty darned fine( if I may say so myself!

This is a lovely property set in wonderful scenery. We would recommend.

We had an extended family celebration with ages ranging from 87 years to 2 months and the facilities and location were perfectly suited to our needs. We had a great time. There was plenty of communal and personal space, and all the things we needed were there (especially WiFi).
Mr Sawle

This is a fabulous house for a large party, overall cleanliness seemed good. Beautiful house with breathtaking views, we would definitely recommend.
