Just to make clear, TripAdvisor classes this as a hotel, whereas it is more of a lodge / guesthouse. It's large for a massive group of friends, and is child friendly. It's near Cockermouth, so near to A roads to get there through the Lake District. It's an ideal location for exploring the park, and going for walks. The rooms...

We stayed here as a group of 21 adults and children for a 40th birthday celebration and what a fantastic time we had. We arrived at the property to be greeted by the owners and shown around the house . Each bedroom was fantastic and had plenty of space. The ensuite bathrooms in all rooms was fantastic as were the...

We arrived to a warm welcome. The house is beautiful and very well decorated in keeping with the surroundings. Very comfortable warm and cosy. Stunning views and lots of walks within easy reach of Lorton. I cannot recommend this place enough for large family gatherings , it suited our needs very well.

We stayed here in November and it was fantastic. We had a large group with 8 couples and 7 kids and the accommodation was ideal. With a group this size it was so nice everyone got a good sized double room with ensuite, so no one got the raw end of the deal. The living and dining areas were great,...

Just back from a weekend at this beautiful house. We were part of a party of 23 and although I had seen the photos I did not expect the house to be as stunning as it was and the livingroom so cosy especially as it had seats for 25! Was very easy to find with lots of parking as we...

Gorgeous accomodation with underfloor heating, 10 bedroom all ensuite-tour on arrival with all amenities. Amazing views from nack of the cottage. Plenty of parking-we had 5 cars for family of 23 for 7days. Owners were very helpful-would definitly recommend it.

We booked the house for a weekend away with friends. The house itself was beautiful, a stunning conversion with lovely rooms (all with ensuite facilities with underfloor heating) and in a wonderful location. Stopping us from giving it a 5 star review were: the kitchen was small and lacked equipment needed for serious catering, no towels were included in the...

My wife and I have just returned from spending two nights at this secluded accommodation which we found delightful. The views from the property are wonderful. Our accommodation was clean and very comfortable. Located close to Cockermouth our base was any easy drive from all of the scenic delights of the Western Lakes. Our hosts, Zen and Jayne, couln't be...

I stayed in stable one, the bed was lovely and the shower was brilliant. Otherwise everything was very basic in the room, nothing special although the view was lovely. Breakfast was good, service friendly, location was convenient; 5minute drive to cockermouth and easy drive to several lakes. No internet access!! Also the bathroom was poorly ventilated so was always damp,...

We spent three nights at this rural b and b within easy reach of Cockermouth. It is clean and welcoming. More information about facilities in the area including good eateries would be helpful.
