“Great Family Weekend”
Reviewed 19 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Bay View at the end of November 2014 for a pre Christmas 'Turkey & Tinsel' family get together (18 adults and 5 children) The location of this property is fantastic with sunsets over Morecambe Bay to die for. There was plenty of space for us all and the facilities at the property were more than adequate. Tim the manager was very helpful and obliging and we all felt the property represented excellent value for money. As a great venue for such a family gathering this property is bad to beat - so much so that we are already planning our return visit next year.

“Stunning Views”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

This is a lovely homely rental, felt at home rather than a hotel. Great rooms for all ages, great selection of books dotted around the house and the layout was great for hide and seek! Lovely grounds with amazing views across the bay. The pool table hosted a competition and good idea to have another fridge in there. Kitchen adequately stocked with equipment and crockery and 2 dishwashers was most helpful.

“Great, fun, and quirky house with lots of room and character”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

Lovely house, very quirky with corridors and doorways to the different bedrooms, took us a while to find bedroom number 11! It does need some TLC, there's a few frayed edges, but it gives the place lots of character and homeyness. Owners are very kind and accommodating. Views are great and we had a lovely walk on the Saturday. Some rooms can be rather noisy when it rains at night, ones with skylights, and the master suit could do with more blinds. But overall a fab weekend break for my 21 strong extended family!

“Stunning location in a real home, for all ages, with breathe taking views, at every turn, from inside and outside.”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house breathed an air of being someone's home rather than just a neat let which lent itself to the Silver Wedding Anniversary plans I'd arranged. I and my husband were able to re-take our wedding vows on the lawn beside the house overlooking the glorious views of the bay bathed in Autumnal sunshine. Our 32 guests were enraptured by both house and especially the grounds, which to young children, and adults alike, were like something from a C S Lewis 'Narnia' book.
The teenagers enjoyed the jacuzzis as much as I and my girlfriends when I had the 'Hen Night' which I couldn't have when we first married. Meanwhile the guys took my husband out for the 'Stag Night' he'd failed to have. As the local pubs are both walking distance no fear of drink driving but torches are a must to get down the drive if it isn't a clear night's sky.
Two lounging areas and two large TVs meant different ages could watch different films at the same time plus whoever decided to pre-record some films was a genius. Our group watched 'Brave' and even the grown men shed a tear or two in between the laughter!!!
Leighton Hall for a Silver 'Tuncheon' {not 'brunch' or lunch but afternoon cream tea at lunch time!!!} was fabulous after we took our wedding vows and if open is worth a visit.
Some past guests have moaned about the pond and things that haven't worked but this is a home and not a hotel plus having things fixed between lets is not easy; skilled workmen being fewer hence the wait can be longer. Both the jacuzzis and all the showers were in full working order when we left. When we arrived, though we failed to mention it, the fridge was 'singing' to us; well it sounded as if 'she' was playing a harp! She was in desperate need of being defrosted and restarted but was quite usable; I quite enjoyed 'her' harmonious noise when we first arrived as it gave the place a magical air. We all hope she's survived and not been replaced as she performed well.
The correspodence with both father, and later the son, was always extremely courteous and helpful.
Helpful hint would be one more large saucepan with lid and a few more mugs; even melamine mugs which are more hardy. I always travel with my own when self-catering hence it didn't matter too much to our group that there were only 17 average sized mugs to use.
Overall BRILLIANT and hope one day to return.
Thank you Jules for letting me rent and use your lovely home as a holiday destination for me and mine.

“fabulous - great facilities, location, tons of room for a large party.”

We booked the house to celebrate my Dad's birthday. The age range of the party stretched from 4 to 80 and everyone had a terrfic time. In addition to the spacious and comfortable lounge and games room, there were smaller public rooms to use to take some time out witb a book. The kitchen and dining areas were spacious and very well equipped. The garden was also very pleasant, and we were fortunate that the weather was mild and we were also able to make use of the outdoor space. The table tennis was popular with everyone.

The Jacuzzis were brilliant and I loved the steam generated showers. All of the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious with plenty of storage space. It was a terrific break in a fantastic house.
