Super house for our group of 12. The dining table and sofas are in the same room, so it didn't matter that there were limited armchairs, as the dining chairs were close by. Well provisioned kitchen with plenty of pots, pans, serving dishes, utensils and cutlery. Very helpful that dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid provided. as well as vegetabRead morele oil and salt/pepper. Hide

We really enjoyed our weekend here. 7 adults, 4 children, & our dog. It was an ideal location and close enough to travel into Grasmere for the day.

Property was comfortable and in a great location to explore the Lake district (however, it is up a very steep hill, which is a difficult climb back from the pub!) Our party of 10 found the bedrooms all comfortable, however, the main living area was a bit cramped. There was alot of unnecessary furniture that filled the space making it feel smaller tRead morehan it is, and in our opinion, not suitable for the size of our party, however, would be great for a smaller group..

Overall enjoyed our stay. There were a few niggles like no outside light arriving in pitch darkness was difficult to see keysafe code. Some of the radiators not getting warm and WiFi not working these were small problems and easily got over. We had booked so that all the family could get together in one place for Christmas and for that it was idealRead more although it would have been nice if there had been a christmas tree up . Hide
