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.


Fantastic place for gathering of friends.
Stayed for one weekend in October 2018. Great spacious venue with lovely owners. Plenty of room. Large spacious living room. Highly recommend

Fantastic place for family holiday
Spent a brilliant week at ghyll bank house with extended family easily accommodating 14 of us, bathrooms redone since we last visited in 2015 made it much more user friendly. You get a fantastic view of the house from Hughill fell, which is walkable straight from the doorstep.

Spacious home to home living
Family friendly house with owners that take good care of their home and were very hospitable. Loads of space for everyone to not feel cramped. Acess perfect for visits to the Lakes and surrounding areas.

Dirty sheets
The sheets on the bed were not changed, there was hairs and crusty deposits, it was awful. The rest of the house was fine, parts have been updated(the kitchen and a bathroom are nice) but many of the bedrooms need attention.

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