  • "We were a group of 6 adults and 6 teenagers from three different families."

    The house was perfect for us. Plenty of space in the house to relax and escape from each other when required. Lots of hot water for showers after water sports on Ullswater and walking the local peaks. We are able to cook perfectly well, although it took a little while to get used to the cooker - a bit fierce! The outhouse nextdoor with an additional fridge was ideal for overspill food and drinks and also for drying out kit. There were plenty of tea towels, towels, crockery etc. All very useful. The owners were responsive when we started to run out of toilet paper and bin bags. The toilet seat in the downstairs ensuite needs a bit of attention but that's a small detail. We made lovely memories at Chimney Gill with friends and would very happily return. Thank-you!

  • "Great stay, thank you!"

    Good communication in advance, spa passes were a great bonus (and the spa was lovely), comfy warm rooms and communal areas. We had a really lovely time and would totally recommend it for other groups. Only thing was we had to go out and get dishwasher tablets... would have been good to have a couple there to at least get people started but that's only a minor point.

  • "We spent Christmas at Chimney Gill with our family of 10 adults, 1 ‘pre teen’ and 2 toddlers."

    It is a lovely cottage with plenty of room for all of us. Lots of equipment ( high chairs, travel cots, cooking utensils, towels etc) provided by the friendly owners who were quick to supply extra forks when requested. They had decorated the cottage for Christmas with a real tree which we appreciated. The house is very warm for the most part and the heating is easy to adjust. My son and his family found the ground floor bedroom a little cold at first but he turned the radiator up and was impressed by how quickly the room heated up. The owners recently had a new door fitted in the shower in the main bathroom but the shower still has a slight leak. The showers in the en-suites are very good. As keen cooks and bakers, we enjoyed working in the large kitchen, although perhaps we could have done with slightly more work surfaces to prepare Christmas dinner. We brought extra baking pans and roasting tins to cook over the Christmas period but in normal circumstances the owners have provided adequate pans and crockery. The location is a little remote (although easy to find) but we enjoyed trips out driving round the lanes admiring the scenery on our way to Carlisle (25 minutes) and to Grasmere (1 hour). We didn’t get chance to use the spa pass, but maybe another time. To summarise, we had a great time and would love to return. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was beautiful and had enough space to fit us all in for the weekend comfortably however the WiFi didn’t work and no real attempt was made to fix it even thought the issue was raised as soon as we arrived as coverage was patchy this made communication with others in our group difficult."

    The main bathroom shower leaked into the kitchen dining room and again no attempt was made to rectify this. The promised fire supplies were a box of old fence posts with no kindling or fire lighters and with no close shops this was less than ideal. Given the issues we had v the cost of a weekend here I won’t be booking again.

    The house was absolutely perfect for our group- great big bedrooms with plenty bathrooms, big relaxing living space and fab outdoor space for the kids too. We enjoyed days out to Whinlatter forest and Keswick, and a morning swim at the hotel pool! The owners were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

    The cottage was extremely clean, bright and fresh. We have done many self catering cottages where you have to bring everything with you including soap for the bathroom but Chimney had it all and it was such a nice touch! The kitchen was well equipped and I even managed to cook a roast dinner for the 10 of us. We loved the open plan living area and especially the fire, it made it extra cosy and warm! I would most defiantly recommend this cottage and we will be booking it again the in the future.

Beds were comfortable, plenty of bathrooms, the living space is bigger than the photos and we easily fir 12 around the dining table. You have to drive a bit for a walk but there are some great local pubs/villages and fab walks. Thanks so much!

  • "Great position in August outside the National Park."

    Quiet and beautiful. Attractive villages and walks along the Cumbrian way.Surprising beaches along the Solway Firth, again almost deserted and yet safe and beautiful. The vouchers for the spa were much appreciated also. Some excellent and still challenging walks on the lower fells. Great pubs and gastro pubs within easy reach. Our only real issues were the Wifi. which for most of the holiday was down. This may be a blip as Graham told us they had been having some work done. We acknowledge that expectation needs to be lower in remote areas, but if Wi fi is offered it should be done so with some caveats.

    The house was well laid out with plenty of space for everyone, the bedrooms spacious and plenty of space for our 4 cars (could probably have got at least 1 more car in). We hired a private chef who had no complaints about the kitchen, although we weren't sure on how to use the oven at first!

The pretty villages of Hesket Newmarket and Caldbeck are near by and worth a visit. We loved the Old Crown Inn pub and Brewery in Hesket. The farm is roughly half way between Penrith and Carlisle which was convenient for people arriving and leaving by train and there are good supermarkets in Penrith.

  • "This was our first getaway holiday for three families with kids ranging from 2 to teens and this lodge was more than adequate to accommodate all of us."

    Tracey and her family were helpful with setting up beds for the little ones and the welcome pack was very generous, kids especially liked the local sourced bacon! The lodge was on a working farm so kids like seeing the baby lambs as it was Spring and the staff were more than glad to tell us about lambing season, although the weather didn't think so but held out for majority of our stay The property looked recently refurbished with tasteful contemporary colour schemes and very well kept with a log fire and central heating that was up to the task on the chilly nights. Everything from the room décor and bedding was fresh and served our needs well and space for kids to kick a ball around. Location was off a country road with good access to north lakes for days out but return to a cosy warm house. We made use of the complimentary passes to the local spa and baths at North Lakes hotel in Penrith, which the kids liked as an indoor activity on an evening and the adults relaxed in the sauna and Jacuzzi; Penrith was also handy for that shopping and for quick bites. Chimney Gill was a pleasant surprise when we first entered due to its size of rooms, cleanliness and facilities there with enough plates and crockery in the kitchen as well as a great range oven making nights in easy to feed everyone Plenty to do around this area weather dependant and we have some fantastic memories of our time there and highly recommend Chimney Gill

We have been in some lovely cottages in the past but this house exceeded all of them and we would very much like to repeat the experience.

  • "Chimney Gill suited our family group extremely well in terms of space, comfort, layout of rooms, cleanliness, facilities and equipment."

    The beds were clean and comfortable and there were more than enough fluffy white towels and constant hot water for 9 adults and 4 children. A travel cot was provided for the youngest child. The kitchen was well equipped and the garden was a great space for our young grandchildren to run around and play in. The owners were friendly and approachable and live nearby, though not on site. They supplied a very generous welcome pack consisting of milk, fresh eggs, bacon, bread, cereals, jams, tea and coffee plus a couple of bottles of wine and some fresh flowers in a vase. All much appreciated. We were fortunate in having some good weather and had a barbecue one evening. The only suggestion we would have for the owners is to perhaps consider having some hooks in the bedrooms and bathrooms for hanging up clothes and/or towels, otherwise It was pretty much perfect. The location was great as it was not too far for family members to drive from Edinburgh and Newcastle as it is not far off the M6. This converted farmhouse sits in pretty countryside and has no neighbours close by to worry about noise levels with young children and it's location allows easy access to the Northern Lake District and the National Park. All in all we had a great week and can recommend Chimney Gill as a comfortable holiday house.
