  • "What a perfect weekend away we had at Stonecross mansion, we couldn't fault anything, Other than we wish we had had a slightly later check out time as 10am on a Sunday morning meant we felt a little rushed, We will definitely be back to stay again."

  • "Property was amazingly clean in both communal areas and the room."

    Welcome package, including new years eve champagne and shortbread, was really appreciated and a lovely touch. Everything was great - I can't think of a single improvement and hope to stay again soon.

  • "We had a fabulous time and are looking to book again next year, possibly with a bigger group to check out one of the larger apartments."

    In the Mabel suite everything was perfect for a group of 2 couples. The place was comfortable and had everything needed for cooking at home. The location is brilliant for walking into Ulverston and to Aldi & M&S at the bottom of the road. Ulverston is a hidden gem. The pubs were fantastic, we went back to both the Farmers and the Mill twice each and had really good quality meals. The town has some lovely arty independent shops and it felt like a lovely community vibe. People are very friendly and chatty up here. We had a lovely walk up to the Hoad monument and enjoyed the windy views. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend stone cross mansions for anyone wanting a stylish, quiet retreat to explore the Lake District from. The shared areas in the mansion are well maintained and we really enjoyed playing pool and ax throwing on the lawn. I would suggest getting some boot scrapers and hard bristle mats near the front door and in the foyer area- given a lot of people will be visiting for hiking/walking holidays. Thanks for a lovely week we hope to come again.

    It far exceeded our expectations.

  • "Absolutely stunning building set in lovely grounds with beautiful holiday apartments finished to an incredibly high standard."

    It had everything we could possibly need for our week away, including M&S, Aldi and Starbucks at the end of the road! I've only marked overall comfort slightly less than perfect because the bed was very firm, verging on uncomfortable, for my own personal preference but that didn't detract from the otherwise perfect apartment and wonderful week. We will definitely be back!!

  • "We visit the Lake District at least once a year, but don’t normally stay in the South/Peninsula area."

    This holiday really revealed the beauty and versatility of the area. The Mabel Suite itself was perfect for the two of us, with fantastic furniture, facilities and standards of cleanliness. We will certainly recommend the property as well as the Sykes holiday company.

  • "Wonderful apartment and location."

    Really enjoyed the stay. Lack of information (manuals) for cooker, washing machine, dishwasher and even the kettle caused some inconvenience. The only detail we were given in the apartment welcome pack was how to use the integrated microwave in the top oven. We had to hunt the internet for information or trust to luck for the rest. Would have liked more information on local walks / services

    Thank you for your feedback, I'm sorry that you were not able to find enough information on the manuals. We have now added all the paper manuals we have found on the appliances to the back of the welcome pack to help future guests. As for the information on local walks in the area, we are currently working on the Stone Cross Mansion website which should be up and running soon and have more information on activities/services in the area. Thanks again Mike and the team Property Owner
