Best holiday yet
What a property, beautiful, clean, spacious, well equipped, relaxing, great for adults, children and dogs, perfectly located for visiting different areas, we thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday, visiting from Coldstream and Devon, would definitely stay here again xxx

Fabulous house with stunning views
10 Adults and 2 dogs stayed for a week. The accommodation was fantastic. The space allowed us all to eat and get together. Equally the layout catered for those who wanted some quiet time. The number of bathrooms meant no queues for the shower in the mornings. The kitchen was well equipped ( we cooked every night). All appliances including 2 dishwashers worked. The views were stunning, particularly the view over Coniston water

Superb house with the most amazing panoramic views from the kitchen
The house was booked for a large group of walkers. The living areas are enormous and comfortable.In fact we hardly went in the end living room - I would imagine this would be nice and cool in very hot weather. Wi Fi worked well and there are several TVs and a really good selection of DVDs and books Several bedrooms are en suite. Bathrooms looked modern and inviting (although we did have a problem with the 1st floor shower). The big top bedroom is amazing (although this one is not en suite). There are two kitchens. But most people will want to spend their time in the large well equipped kitchen with almost "otherworldly" panoramic views to the high fells all the way round to Morecambe Bay. Ulverston is just a few miles down the road. We parked 6 cars without too many problems. We would definitely come back here.

Great views, an excellent location and a beautiful house. There were plenty of things to do!

Fantastic accomodation, everything we needed plus amazing views
This was one of the best holiday accommodations we have stayed in, well equipped, spotlessly clean, lovely and warm throughout and situated with the most beautiful Lakeland fell view from the kitchen window. It suited our extended family group having a number of sitting areas, 3 TVs and plenty of space, the children enjoyed the table tennis room in the basement. It would have been helpful if the garden area was secure for the dogs - they needed supervising whilst outside but this was a minor problem. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
