  • Stayed here for week in July, house was tastefully and very comfortably furnished. 2 good sized bedrooms but the third bunk room is very tight - only suitable for younger children I'd say. Used the pool most days and the bar for a coffee but didn't eat in the restaurant. The menu did look nice though and we had takeaway pizzas one night which were very tasty and ready quickly. Well situated for exploring the Lakes, great farm shop close by and we would definitely recommend this house to others
