The Bar is amazing it was great fun playing barmaid and really social area - I learnt how to pour my very first pint! :)
We ordered the kegs from the local brewery so had the local ales on tap for the whole weekend. :)
The pool room is very social area, where we could all sit around and watch the game take place and wait for our turn in the tournament.
The kitchen facilities are great, we had lots of chefs cooking at once and it was big enough for us to work around each other. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed ...even for our traditional family bake off.
Great communal areas to congregate but also a big enough house to have some quality alone time.
It was great that each bedroom has an en-suite - no queuing for the showers in the morning ... Even with so many women in the family!
There was more than enough parking for everyone.
The house has a traditional country feel, making it the perfect retreat in the country setting.
We had a great weekend in the Big Pink House...... Just need to find another family excuse to do it again soon!!! …
Recharges the batteries other Chalets cannot reach
Loved the modern feel and with amazing views across the hills. This place had everything we wanted and more. if its Peace and quiet you want then look no further.
We wanted to relax and take our dog with us. We were not dissapointed. Dog friendly shops too. No local shops so stock up before you arrive. Nice walks and close to everything you would expect in the lakes. …
modern comfortable accommodation in a good location
The accommodation is well situated in a quite location but with good road links to both Cockermouth and Keswick. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was also parking space for two cars. …
Fabulous little cottage
We were looking to squeeze a holiday in before work became busy but hadn't had time to book anything in advance so as I'd used Stay lakeland before decided to see if they had anything available last minute, and they did, and fortunately we stumbled across this cottage. It is a very pleasant mid terraced cottage with two double bedrooms and a pull out bed in the lounge. Due to the size of the house it may be a bit impractical if there are more that two couples sharing. The Kitchen was of an acceptable size with all the 'White goods' and usual kitchen equipment. This property also boasts an appropriately sized lounge/dinner. There is also a small patio area to the rear which can be utilised for drying clothes, handy when your in the lake district. In my opinion the location of the cottage is perfect, just far enough away from the busy towns but close enough to be convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our last minute break and would definitely consider visiting this house again. …
An amazing stay
We have holidayed at skiddaw view serveral times and we love the peace and quiet here. The views are amazing and the park is well spread out so you don't feel overlooked.
My 8 year old boy enjoyed meeting friends at the small play park. …
