  • "Does what it says on the tin, no frills but great place for a gathering of people."

    A lot of the appliances in the kitchen don't work which is disappointing, the fridge in the bar is also broken. Bedrooms are fine and beds comfy. The hot tub was broken and we were only told the day before we arrived for which we are unhappy too.

  • "The property could have been cleaner, there were cobwebs and spiders in several of the bedrooms."

    There is very little outside space, and the position of the hot tub meant it was not private enough to use. The bins were almost full on the day we arrived which meant we could not dispose of all our rubbish as per the instructions in the property. Also the information about the restrictions with being able to play music/make a lot of noise after a specific times and possibly dealing with an 'odd' neighbour was not the best to receive 2 days before our stay was due to commence!

  • "Perfect place of stay and location too is very lovely!"

    Would strongly recommend for small or big groups of people. Consists of all amenities and games room is a big bonus! Jonathan is very kind and super quick in communication and was very helpful from the start to end of stay!

  • "We were a group of 19 staying for a long weekend."

    So many bedrooms to choose from. The beds were extremely comfortable with spotless bed linen. The hottub was equally spotless and delightfully hot. A well equipped games room and lots of space to spread out. A well equipped kitchen. A very quiet area and beautiful places to visit. We would recommend the horse riding (leaflets in the accommodation), and the fish and chip shop in Shap. Will definitely be back.

  • "Beds were extremely comfortable."

    Temperamental heating system. TV in the main room did not turn on - we were warned about the ones in the bedrooms. Glass washer was dirty and apparently not working however my husband drained and cleaned it - then worked perfectly. Very handy for Ullswater, had two very nice days there Kids loved the games room - from 4yrs and up. Would benefit from a more comprehensive instruction book with details on how to contact the owners. Instructions for the hot tub were comprehensive and we all enjoyed the use of it.

    Really great space for eighteen people -- lots of parking hot tub was great -- the rooms were very spacious and felt like everyone had plenty of space to spread out

The property

Constructed in the mid-18th century this fantastic hotel is now the ideal holiday venue for a family gathering or group of up to 24.

After parking in one of the handy off-road spaces for four cars, or one of the three spaces nearby, progress into this grand building, and be welcomed by an entrance hall that boasts an opulent chandelier.

Turn to your left to be drawn into a large living/dining room that offers plenty of seating for the whole family to settle down on, as well as a TV and a bar area with fridges and dishwashers for your use.

After cosying up with your loved ones, continue to the amply equipped kitchen, thanks to its commercial nature, the space offers industrial-grade appliances, including glasswashers, a dishwasher, as well as all the utensils you need to prepare delectable dishes.

Enjoy a sumptuous dinner in the nearby dining room, which offers two banqueting tables that seat up to 24 in total; crack open a bottle of wine, and toast to this impressive retreat, before tucking into a tasty meal.

As night falls, venture out to the patio and savour a soothing soak in the hot tub in your calming surroundings, whilst the younger members of the group head to the games room for a air hockey or table football tournament.

When you begin to feel weary, make your way up to the first floor to find eight of the 12 well-presented bedrooms in the property, including: a super-king-size, two king-size, two doubles and three twins; all of the bedrooms on this floor boast access to their own en-suite shower rooms, with one of the twins hosting an en-suite bathroom, replete with a roll top bath.

The second floor also hosts a bathroom that has been finished to a very high standard and boasts a roll-top bath and a separate walk-in shower; the ground floor also features two cloakrooms with multiple basins and WCs, for added convenience.

In the morning, get to know the local area and explore the nearby RSPB Haweswater nature reserve or the ruins of Shap Abbey, before stopping in the village of Shap to purchase any essentials from the local post office & village shop, or relish a hearty meal at one of the many friendly pubs.

A day out in Pooley Bridge awaits with; plenty of watersports to be experienced at the adjacent Ullswater; hikes to be embarked upon through the enchanting woodland of Dunmallard or along River Eamont; horses to be ridden at the local Park Foot Pony Trekking Centre.
