  • "We booked the property for my 60th birthday and we had the perfect weekend."

    Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and the games room. Lovely house with everything we needed for a great time. I would recommend it to anyone who needed a big house for all their family. St Bees was lovely and just a short journey further up the road.

  • "The house was amazing for the 16 of us it was spacious plenty of space it has a great kitchen and dining room."

    For everyone to be together and we did all sit in the upper lounge but limited seats so we were sat around the floor. We used it as a family get together so there was 5 family's all meeting up from all over the north so it was perfect for us. There is nothing around if you want to walk but we went to Whitehaven and St bees and we had a lovely time.The house was clean the beds were comfortable. We did a tesco hone delivery when we arrived so that was great to have fresh products on hand without going out.The hot tub was an added bonus to the break and we had a family bbq. Sadly there's no grass garden for the kids to kick a football about but the games room made up for it.we had some special requests to arrive earlier and checkout a little later and because they had got it ready and no one was rushing in after us they were amazing to accommodate so thank you for this and we will definitely be using you again and would highly recommend.Janette and the family x

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a fantastic review! We're delighted to hear that the house was perfect for your family reunion. It sounds like you all enjoyed spending time together, especially in the spacious kitchen and dining area. We appreciate you mentioning the upper lounge seating – we'll consider adding a few more chairs for future guests. We're glad the hot tub and games room were a hit, especially since there wasn't a grassy area for the kids to play outside. We understand the importance of those special touches and are happy we could accommodate your requests for an early arrival and late checkout. Thank you again for recommending us, and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Property Owner

    A wonderful house in a lovely area that's close to shops and bars as well as a quick drive to the beach! We would definitely come again!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that the property was the perfect location for your large group.

  • "Accommodation and location great."

    House is warm and comfortable. There is a shortage of cooking and serving utensils for large numbers wishing to cook big meals like Christmas lunch. The games room has no heating so it's not really viable as a games room in the winter but that meant we used it as a pantry as the fridge is too small for mass catering. A second fridge in the games room would be good for large groups in the summer. The dishwasher cutlery basket need replacing - it's got holes in the bottom which allow the cutlery to fall through and prevent the bottom water jet boom from spinning. The water pressure in the shower downstairs is low and the temperature control is not very easy to use.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! We're delighted you found the accommodation and location great, and that the house felt warm and comfortable. We have looked into the issues you raised and have made adjustments to the house to make it more comfortable for future guests. We appreciate you letting us know about the shortcomings with the kitchen equipment, fridge size, and dishwasher basket. We'll definitely look into getting these addressed to better suit larger groups. We also appreciate the suggestion for a second fridge in the games room - that's a great idea, especially for summer months. We apologize for the low water pressure and temperature control issues in the downstairs shower. We'll have this checked by a maintenance person as soon as possible. Thank you again for your valuable feedback. It helps us ensure a consistently positive experience for all our guests. Property Owner

    The property is beautiful but there was a few maintenance issues that need addressing door handles missing or broken which led to getting stuck in a bathroom there is no security lights around the property and this then meant the hot tub and outside area cannot be used when dark which at this time of year is around 3-4pm

We're truly sorry about the inconvenience caused by the missing or damaged door handles and the non functioning security lights. Your safety and security are our priority. I'm pleased to let you know that we've taken care of all the issues you raised. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future. With these improvements in place and our continuous dedication, to ensuring guest satisfaction we believe your next visit will be more enjoyable. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the charming market town of Egremont close to the Lake District National Park in Cumbria is the spectacular Grove House.

This wonderful, dog-friendly holiday home dates back to the 1880s and benefits from a fabulous location close to the abundance of attractions in the Lake District National Park as well as the Heritage Coast at St Bees.

This imposing semi-detached property has a stunning interior, off-road parking and even a hot tub; the perfect setting for large family gatherings or groups of friends looking to explore the wonders of Cumbria.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can help prepare delicious meals that the whole family can enjoy in the formal dining room with enough seats for everyone!

On sunny evenings you could indulge in an alfresco affair before taking advantage of the house’s amenities which include an external games room with pool table and a hot tub where you can savour a soothing soak and marvel as the stars fill the sky over Cumbria.

On colder nights, gather the family in the welcoming sitting room where the crackling woodburing stove greets you and enjoy a well-earned family film night on the Smart TV before washing off the day’s adventures in either the lower-ground-floor bathroom, the bathroom on the first floor or the shower room on the second.

When yawning begins, choose from eight beautifully-appointed bedrooms; there is a super-king-size and two double on the lower-ground-floor, two super-king-sizes completing the first and one double and two twins finishing off the second floor.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic abode venture into the heart of Egremont where you can stock up on all your self-catering goods or enjoy a much-needed break from the kitchen at O’Hallorans or further afield at The Royal Oak in Beckermet.

Alternatively venture to the coast at St Bees where you can roam the golden shores with your canine companion while admiring the spectacular views across the sea, if you're lucky you may even spot local wildlife like Herring Gulls or Razorbills.

Outdoor enthusiasts can venture into the Lake District National Park to uncover the abundance of walks, trails and summits including High Stile, Dale Head and Scafell Pike.

All this and more awaits at Grove House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

EGREMONT, CUMBRIA

St Bees 2.7 miles; Whitehaven 5.8 miles

The market town of Egremont is settled in the Borough of Copeland, on the western edges of the Lake District. This bustling town lies at the foot of Dent Fall, with its make-up much the same as it was around the 13th century. The main street opens out into the market place, with the ruins of the Norman castle at the southern end, just above the river Ehen. There are several churches, a couple of supermarkets, arts centre, shops and eateries. Ennerdale Water, nestled in Cleater is the westernmost lake in the National Park and is perhaps the most peaceful of all the lakes. With no public roads running along its National Trust owned shoreline, it is the set well off the beaten track and is the least visited of all the lakes. The seaside village of St. Bees, now the start of Wainwright’s famous “Coast to Coast” Walk, features a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a nine-hole golf course and a host of traditional pubs. St. Bees Head is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, named after the village it sits next to. Abundant walks are available along the clifftops, as well as strolls across its sandy beach. Whitehaven is further up this beautiful coastline, an elegant Georgian port, nestled between the glistening sea and Lakeland Fells. Discover its wonderful parks and gardens and the Beacon Heritage Centre, where you can learn of the town's vast history. Muncaster Castle is 12 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway, and just over 15 miles away is Wasdale Head, the start of the climb to the summit of Scaffel Pike, the highest mountain in England. An ideal location for touring the western coast of the Lake District.
