  • ""It's not often when you get to spend your holiday in a dream holiday home" were the words of my 8 year old which summarises our stay well."

    Ideal location, clean, luxurious interiors, access to pool, gym, games and other facilities at the village, electric car charging - all of it makes us plan to come back soon.

  • "Lovely property clearly designed with a very high specification in mind."

    Loved our stay. My daughter's loved the hidden room. We had to coax them out at some points. Great base to explore the lakes and the whole whitbarrow village and its staff made it a pleasure to stay at. Restaurant food of a good standard

  • "Amazing stay overall."

    we did miss WiFi and although it’s good to disconnect from the world we missed our evening Netflix and kids you tube as the shared WiFi on site was really poor. If the cottage had dedicated WiFi we would return. Maybe benefit from a coffee machine and toaster.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We have taken your points onboard and have now installed Starlink Satelite broadband which is proving successful. Hopefully see you again soon. Property Owner
