  • "We had the loveliest of time at Sanderson park."

    It’s a beautiful clean property and had everything we needed, i would highly recommend this place and all I would say is the back garden could have a little more done in the way of colour “flowers” but it didn’t have any bearing on the fabulous time we spent there, an hour later 10.30, check out would have been better but we managed it and I hope to return again. Thank you .

    Thank you so much for your kind words about your stay! We're thrilled you enjoyed Sanderson Park and found it clean and well-equipped. We appreciate the feedback on the backyard - we'll definitely consider adding some flowers in the future! We'd love to welcome you back again soon! Property Owner

  • "The property was just great for our needs, three different families all coming together to share the space."

    I have never slept in beds like it, they were so very comfortable ❤️

  • "The house is a great place to get a big group together and spacious enough not to feel overcrowded."

    We didn't have enough towels for our group though, despite there only being 11 of us and some bath towels were too small. It was too cold in the house on a few occasions we no option to change the heating. One of the ovens didn't work. Some light bulbs need replacing and there were no dishwasher tablets. And there were no wine glasses or pint glasses. A small pool cue might be a good idea too. It's quite tight around the pool table. But we would recommend and these are just suggestions to make it better for your next visitors

  • "Heating was an issue as it was set by timer and we could not change."

    The weather had turned cold and we could not adjust the heating to come on, which is not good when you have young children.

  • "Beautiful property, plenty of room for a large group."

    Spotlessly clean. Slight niggles, bath towels on the small size. Need larger pans. Floor boards very squeaky. Mat runner by front door a trip hazard.

  • "Just Fabulous !"

    We had four generations of our family in the house and not once did we feel on top of one another . The owners were amazing helping us when we didn’t quite read the instructions for the oven

    So glad to hear you had a fabulous stay with your multi-generational crew! It's awesome that everyone felt comfy. If you're ever up for another round, we'd love to host you again! Property Owner

About the location


Whitehaven 4.1 miles; Cockermouth 16.7 miles; Bassenthwaite 21.4 miles.

Enjoying a peaceful position within the English county of Cumbria is Cleator Moor, a small town resting just a few miles away from Whitehaven and the coastline. The town plays host to a number of amenities, including a handful of pubs, shops and other small businesses, as well as a Mart Square, where there are three sculptures by Conrad Atkinson, a local artist of international repute. Here, you will also find part of the West Cumbria Cycle Network, which form a portion of the C2C Cycle Route, from Whitehaven to Sunderland. Those with two-wheels can look forward to meandering along the route of the old Whitehaven, Cleator and Egremont and Rowrah and Kelton Fell Railways, which were once very active in the 1850s. The port town of Whitehaven is nearby and rests on the west coast of Cumbria, where you will find a larger selection of amenities, as well as a golf course, The Beacon Museum and the attraction of The Rum Story & Jefferson' Shop. During the summer months, be sure to spend time on the local beaches of Providence Bay Beach, Tanyard Bay Beach and Fleswick Bay or head to the Lake District National Park to uncover some great walking opportunities and other outdoor adventure. Cleator Moor is a delightful town for exploring further afield.
