We stayed here in mid November with a family group ranging from 3-80yrs old!!! The family who run it could not be more accommodating from the freshmilk, tea bags a local paper & some Kendal mint cake that welcomed us to the fact they posted back all the things we managed to leave!! The property offers a multitude of sleeping options the kitchen & bathrooms are lovely & the property very homely without being intimidating for anyone with toddlers! The space is amazing Bella's particular favourite the games room or ballroom which she referred to it as, an oak panelled wooden floored huge room resembling a small village hall clear for her to play & charge around, complete with rocking horse! There were model farm toys, travel cots & high chairs but by far the most popular attribute were the resident dear & badgers, rabbits birds & squirrels found in the grounds. Fab property all year around tonnes of space both indoor & outdoor. A bit of a hairy driveway to get to property I firmly recommend closing your eyes but well worth the bumps! The lakes is a fab holiday destination for all ages which never fails to deliver in any weather & somewhere I fell in love with 25years a go & have been returning to since! X
