    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, so comfortable we didn't want to leave. We would definitely stay here again it's close to lots of attractions and you can access many of the beautiful sites the Lake District has to offer. The beauty and peacefulness of the place amazed us and we were quite happy to idle in this haven of luxury on the days we didnt fancy doing much. We loved it!

    An absolutely beautiful house; enormous, grand and yet cosy and warm. Everything works; the fire, the heating, and the cupboards are stocked with everything a cook needs to make a meal and the bedrooms and glorious and large with stunning views. Perfect.
