    We got the whole family together - us, our children and grandchildren - for a holiday to celebrate our ruby wedding. The location was perfect, near the beach for the kids, Muncaster Castle for a great day out, and serious mountains within easy reach for the more intrepid members of the group! The house has a lot more character than you'd guess from the look of the outside, and we particularly appreciated the small upstairs sitting area, outside what for most groups like ours would be the kids' bedroom. The living room and dining room were fine, though the kitchen was a little bit cramped.

    We had a lovely week at Knott View, although the property is not really up to its star rating. Whilst clean, tidy, and fairy well equipped, the house is much shabbier than expected, and than the price we paid would suggest. It's in need of serious updating, however that didn't detract from the amazing location and the real friendliness ad helpfulness of the housekeeper was an added bonus. Being left cake for our arrival was such a kind touch! The nearby Muncaster Castle is a must, with it's wonderful falconry display and owl centre, and the walks and steam train are ideal for an active family.

    We booked for a week away with our extended family. Knott view was very competitavely priced vs the competition and overall represented fair value for money. The house is large with a well equipped kitchen, giant dining table and lounge with plenty of seating. The decor and furnishings are functional giving the property a utilitarian feel. For this reason, it's ideal for large group bookings. For a family break away, there are a couple of points which detracted from our overall enjoyment. Knott View is attached to another large holiday let and parking facilities are shared. Across the bank holiday we were booked in the adjoining occupants had 9 cars parked outside which made parking our own vehicles difficult. The people staying next door were not especially rowdy but with such a large group, they generated a fair amount of noise which was easily transmitted into knott view. The property is evidently pet friendly and probably our biggest disappointment was to discover all the sofas in the lounge covered in animal hair. One thing to be aware of when booking Knott View is the long country track to access the property. Its absolutely fine in the car but is a fair walk to the village and at night the uneven surface makes for a challenging trek in the pitch black. If you're a group of walkers looking for a well equipped base to explore the lake district, knott view is a reasonable choice. If you're part of a group looking for a quiet and relaxing break away, I'd probably recommend you look elsewhere.

    Excellent in every way, fantastically well equipped, very clean and tidy, superb value for money. We're already looking at booking for another trip in the summer as a long weekend wasn't enough to get out and explore the local area.

    We had a great time celebrating my 40th Birthday at Muncaster Castle Nott View. I greatly appreciated the call from the housekeeper in the run up to our stay to discuss room allocation etc. We also greatly appreciated the assistance and attention to detail of the staff at the Pennington Hotel.
